The CERN-Latin-American School of High-Energy Physics, which will run in Arequipa, Peru, from 6-13 March 2013, is now open for applications. The school is targeted particularly at students in experimental high-energy physics (HEP) who are in the final years of work towards their PhDs. However, it is anticipated that some post-doctoral students in experimental HEP, and some students in phenomenology, including some masters students, will also be accepted. The scientific programme covers topics from field theory to neutrino physics and cosmology. Some pre-knowledge of the subjects is necessary to profit fully from the lecture courses.
In the past, demand for attendance has exceeded the number of available places, so a competitive selection is made based on information provided on the application form and the letter of recommendation from the candidate's professor or supervisor.
