2017 CERN-JINR European School of High-Energy Physics

The 2017 CERN-JINR European School of High-Energy Physics will take place in Evora, Portugal, 6-19 September 2017. The School is targeted particularly at students in experimental HEP who are in the final years of work towards their PhDs, although candidates at an earlier or later stage in their studies may be considered. The deadline for applications is 28 April 2017. Sponsorship may be available for a few students from developing countries. Further details are available here:
