Petnica Summer Institute

Summer School on High Energy Physics
12 July - 21 July, 2018

In 2018 we continue pursuing the idea of intensive summer programme for the undergraduate and early graduate students, where advanced lectures are given by experts in the fields. This year we are happy to present Summer School on High Energy Physics.

The aim: The school aims to provide intensive and thorough course on high energy physics including theory and experiments. The school is not limited to lectures, but will also include daily discussion sessions, problem solving and independent work.

For whom: The school is intended for senior undergraduate and early graduate students mainly from Balkans region. All lectures will be given in English, so we also welcome students from anywhere abroad. Exceptional younger students and interested graduate students will also be considered.

By whom: Lectures will be given mostly by PhD students and young postdocs, but also by some senior researchers. Lecturers come from various European and US institutions.
