LAMELIS 2015 – Summer school on Lasers in Medicine and Life Sciences

The city of Szeged is proud to have been chosen as the site of one of the four pillars of a massive European laser project entitled ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure). Szeged is going to host ELI-ALPS (Attosecond Light Pulse Source), a facility dedicated to ultra-short laser pulses. Apart from breaking new ground in the study of very fast atomic and molecular processes, it is also expected to bring about improvements in medicine and life sciences. To discuss and disseminate the implications of these developments, the University of Szeged organised a summer school entitled Lasers in Medicine and Life Sciences (LAMELIS) in 2014 (the talks are available on Youtube). The organisers feel that the feedback they have received on the quality of the talks and the atmosphere of the first event is not only an encouragement but also an obligation to establish a tradition, so they announce a LAMELIS again this year. The LAMELIS 2015 summer school will be held between 13th and 18th July.

The summer school is open to both medical students and physics students. Although the theoretical depth of talks is tailored for medical students, the programme can also benefit physics students as they can learn of medical applications of lasers directly from distinguished experts of the field and receive first-hand information on the current status of ELI-ALPS.

Particle & Astroparticle Physics Spring Programme – wrapping up!

Registration for the Particle & Astroparticle Physics Spring Programme is now closed! Thanks to all those who registered in the past week! Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer a place to everyone, but we will try our best to satisfy as many as possible.

The Organizing Committee will shortly be in contact with all those who completed the registration form. We are really looking forward to meeting the group in Rome in just a few weeks!

iaps@GranSasso 2015 – 2nd round of registration

We are now able to offer additional places for the Particle & Astroparticle Physics Spring Programme! A second round of registration is open for students wishing to participate as “Observers”, i.e. without presenting talks/posters during the event.

Registration is now open until Sunday 29th of March at 12:00 (CET) at the following link:

We also have some fantastic news for you all: our visit of the ENEA Frascati research center is now confirmed! The ENEA organisation has also agreed to provide us with the full financial support that we requested, so we will be able to further improve our scientific and cultural offer to you! An updated version of the Programme is now available on the event’s page.

We have received many compliments for our logo and poster designs. Full credit goes to Kelvin, Tsz Hei Choi, who will also join us in Italy! We are very grateful for the fantastic work he did. IAPS_GranSasso_Purple_png


iaps@Gran Sasso – Deadline extension

A deadline extension for the Particle & Astroparticle Physics Spring Programme has been agreed to give students from some new countries the opportunity to apply. The new deadline for registration and abstract submissions is:

Saturday, March 7th, 13:00 (CET).

Please notice that if you registered to present a talk and/or a poster, your abstract will need to be received by the Organising Committee before such deadline.


Registration continues here:

One week more…!

Registration for the iaps@GranSasso event continues in its second week!

We have so far received IAPS_GranSasso_Purple_pngexcellent worldwide interest for this Particle & Astroparticle Physics Spring Programme, and in particular for the student talks/posters session to be held at the LNGS/GSSI.

Please find the event poster below. If you wish to support IAPS by spreading the word about this event, please don’t hesitate to contact the Organising Committee – we will be happy to send you high-quality versions of the poster below and the event logo, together with the Programme description.
