7th School on LHC Physics - 2018

06 - 17 August, 2018

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), at CERN, Switzerland, is the world’s largest man-made particle accelerator to probe the standard model of particle physics and beyond. In July, 2012, the CERN has announced the exciting discovery of Higgs Boson, a milestone achievement in the history of particle physics. In the years 2015-16, the enhanced centre of mass energy of proton-proton collisions at 13 TeV and higher luminosities at the LHC have played a crucial role to investigate the physics of interest. In this year and onwards, many other interesting results are expected to come from CERN.

NCP is regularly organising schools on LHC Physics since 2009, in coordination with AS-ICTP. Many of well-known physicists and field experts from all over the world join this school to train the next generation of LHC physicists. Along the same lines, the focus of this 7th school on LHC Physics is also to build and strengthen the knowledge of undergraduate and graduate students, and young researchers in the field. The school will be covering physics-oriented lectures, data analysis tutorials and hands-on exercises designed by various local and foreign experts.
