Linear collider school now accepting applications

The Seventh International Accelerator School for Linear Colliders, which takes place this year in Indore, India, is accepting applications through July 20.

The school, whose target students are graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and junior researchers, will focus on future lepton colliders, including the ILC, CLIC and the muon collider. It will cover both basic materials and advanced topics in accelerator physics and both warm and superconducting radio-frequency technology.

The school program runs from Nov. 27 to Dec. 8. and is being organized by the ILC Global Design Effort, the CLIC Study and the ICFA Beam Dynamics Panel. Admitted students will be eligible for full or partial financial aid covering expenses including airfare, lodging, meals, local transportation and school supplies.

“The next generation of high-energy physics colliders after the LHC will have a long timescale from conception to construction and operation,” said Weiren Chou, chair of the ICFA Beam Dynamics Panel. “This is an opportunity to train the new generation of scientists.”
