Taller de Altas Energías 2010

2010, Aug 31 -- Sep 11

Local organizers:
J. I. Latorre (Universitat de Barcelona)
J. Rojo (INFN Milano)

The Taller de Altas Energías 2010 will be held at the Universitat de Barcelona, organized by the Departament d'Estructura i Constituents de la Matèria

Universitat Red Dep.

The Taller de Altas Energías (TAE) is a yearly workshop aimed at completing the education of first and second year graduated students who are starting their research on experimental/theoretical high energy physics, astroparticles and cosmology.

The 2010 edition will take place at the ECM department of the Universitat de Barcelona, and is supported by the CPAN, the Red de Física de Partículas, the Red Española de Física del LHC and the Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual.

The program of the workshop combines courses delivered by international experts and individual work supervised by tutors. Lectures will be delivered in the mornings, whereas tutorials and more specific seminars will be reserved for the afternoons. Students will work through the solutions of problems proposed by senior lectures with the help of tutors.
