iaps@GranSasso – Particle & Astroparticle Physics Spring Programme

Update 29/03/2015, 12:00 (CET): registration for the 2nd turn is now closed. Thanks to all those who applied for a place! We will unfortunately not be able to offer one to everyone, but we hope to satisfy most. The Organising Committee will shortly be in contact with all those who completed the registration form.


IAPS is proud to annouce the first edition of the iaps@GranSasso- Particle & Astroparticle Physics Spring Programme, to be held in Italy in May 2015!

The 2nd round of registration for this event is now open until Sunday 29th of March, at 12:00 (CET). This time, students will only be able to register as “Observers”, i.e. they will not be able to apply to give a talk and/or a poster.

The registration form can be found at http://www.iaps.info/activities/gransasso-particle-astroparticle-physics-spring-programme/iapslngs-registration

The Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS) in Italy is currently the largest underground particle physics lab in the world and focuses on particle and astroparticle physics. It is situated inside the Gran Sasso mountain, below 1400 meters of rock that shield it from cosmic rays.

The Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI) is an international PhD School and a centre for advanced studies in physics, mathematics, computer science and social sciences, with a particular focus on astroparticle physics research.

The National agency for new technologies, Energy and sustainable economic development (ENEA) is one of the largest research organizations in Italy. In its Frascati facilities, it hosts laboratories working on superconductivity, inertial confinement fusion and magnetic confinement fusion.

During the Particle & Astroparticle Physics Spring Programme, IAPS will visit these three institutions, as well as the centre of the city of Rome.

You can download the complete description of the iaps@GranSasso – Particle & Astroparticle Physics Spring Programme. Please also see the iaps@GranSasso_LaTeX_template  for general guidelines on abstracts submissions.

Participation fees are fixed at €90.

Please write to Francesco for any question. Further details and updates will be published on this website and on the IAPS Facebook Group.

We looking forward to meeting you in Italy!

The iaps2CERN 2015 trip will take place between the 20th and the 23rd of April.

We will be staying at the Geneva Youth Hostel, as in several past editions of the event. The hostel has recently been renewed and you can trust that we will have a wonderful experience. The hostel is at a walking distance from the center of the city and easily reachable from the airport, the train station and CERN. As usual for IAPS trips, we also plan to visit the United Nations office of Geneva.
