The National Institute of Nuclear Physics (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare) and the University of Trento are organizing a 5 day hands-on course on Geant4 from 26 to 30 November 2018.
Geant4 is a software toolkit, written in C ++, for simulating tracking of particles in the matter with the Monte Carlo approach. The software is developed and maintained by an international collaboration team of scientists belonging to different institutions. Geant4 can be used for applications in high energy physics, astrophysics, medical physics, particle astrophysics and nuclear physics.
The topics of the VI International Geant4 School will cover both high energy/nuclear physics and medical applications. An introductory section will be focused on all main aspects of the C++ basic programming. Lectures will cover all aspects of the Geant4 toolkit from basic installation through advanced topics and will be interspersed with examples that build a progressively more complex application, extensible to real space and medical use.
The course addresses PhD students, medical physicists and young researchers working at universities or research institutes. On the last day of the School, participants will have the opportunity to test their learning achievements through a written exam. The successful outcome of the test will be reported on a written certificate for those interested, to be requested on arrival, at the registration desk. A simple attendance certificate will also be available on request.
Detailed information will be available at this page.
