The philosophy

The lectures that were given at the school in Ankara have been filmed and will soon be available on via CDS (audiovisual service). This will allow everyone with an interest in the lectures to watch them at any time. It is expected that a number of CERN based people (summer students, technical students, young physicists and engineers involved in one of the experiments) will make use of this option. In order to allow them to also do the exercises (to the extent possible) we had the idea of setting up one copy of each exercise in a permanent way at CERN. This also has the advantage that the exercises stay alive which reduces the effort in the preparatory phase of an external school (ISOTDAQ2011 - Rome).

Practical aspects


The exercises will be set up in roob 4-2-38

Set-up of the exercises

It is planned to set-up as many of the exercises from Ankara as possible. In order to keep the cost low (pool rental) some equipment has to be shared between exercises. For this reason and because the room is small only one group (1 tutor and up to 4 students) can work in 4-S-38 at any time.
