Generalities

We expect 40 students with courses in english, ~20 Students from Turkey. There should be 10 groups of 4 students each. The school to be 7 days, long at least half a day free time. The location is identified as Ankara, Turkey. TAEK (turkish atomic energy authority) confirmed to be the hosting institute. The school is planned for 1 .. 7 February 2010. The web page of the school is here

Goals of the school

Introduce the basics of Trigger and Data acquisition
Expose the students to a maximum variety of topics
Show the TDAQ examples from small and large experiments (from Na59 to CMS/ATLAS experiments)

Make sure that the lab exercises are completed and beneficial to the students
