European Summer University : Particles & the Universe

Dernière mise à jour

Modern particle physics, cosmology and astrophysics are coming close to explain the main features of our entire universe. Some fundamental principles or symmetries of the infinite small microcosm of elementary particles may connect the birth of the universe in the Big Bang to its large macroscopic structures of galaxies. The idea of the 2006 European Summer University is to offer to the students an enthusiastic and didactic introduction to the most recent research projects of modern particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology. The lectures will be given by internationally well known researchers in their field and will be appropriate for students in physics having successfully completed three years of university studies.

Scientific program

The scientific program will consist of :

- 12 main lectures of 2-4 hours each
- 4-6 hours of supervised exercises
- One afternoon for a visit to the research laboratories on the campus Cronenbourg
- One day of lectures and visit at the Observatory for Astronomy, Strasbourg
- One day of lectures and visit to the Forschungs-Zentrum in Karlsruhe.

Targeted Audience

The lectures target students in physics having successfully completed three years of university studies.

Place and Time

The European Summer University will take place at the Physics Department of the Louis Pasteur University, in Strasbourg (France), lasting 9 days from the 3rd to 12th of July 2006. Monday the 3rd is reserved for arrival and registration of the participants.

Lectures will be held in the building of the Physics Department, "UFR de Sciences Physiques" and at the Observatory for Astronomy, 3-5 and 11 rue de l’Université, very close to the centre of Strasbourg. One day will be at the Forschungszentrum in Karlsruhe.

The official language of the Summer University sessions will be English. Participants are expected to be able to communicate fluently in this language.
