4-7 March at CERN: 12th Inverted CERN School of Computing


The 12th edition of the “Inverted” CERN School of Computing (iCSC 2019) will take place at CERN from 4 to 7 March 2019 in the IT Auditorium (Room 31/3-004).

An excellent programme is planned, consisting of lectures and hands-on exercises selected from a range of proposals submitted by student of past CSC schools.

You are not obliged to attend the full event – indeed you can simply attend the classes that interest you the most. Attendance is free, and the event will be webcast for those who cannot attend in person.

Registration is not compulsory, but will allow you to enjoy coffee courtesy of the CSC, and obtain a hard copy of the booklet, which includes the lecture slides and notes (distributed during the school, while stocks last).
