How to Apply

Applications to attend the School must include:

  • A completed application form (web-based)
  • A letter of reference and ranking from the candidate's professor or supervisor

Please use this application form. Please read the conditions for participation and the guidelines given below before filling out the form.

The final applications deadline is 26 February 2010.

If necessary, use "N/A" for fields that are not applicable.

Conditions for Participation

The School is open to young physicists, preparing a PhD or equivalent in high-energy physics, with at least one year's experience working as experimentalists or phenomenologists. The number of students will be about 100, mostly from the CERN and JINR Member States, but a few may come from other countries which are not members. Personal contacts and informal discussions among the participants during leisure time are an important aspect of the School. For this reason, participants are asked to note that they should not be accompanied by family members or friends.

A small number of Finnish students, who would normally not qualify for the school could be accepted as "listeners", and such students should also fill in the application form.


The application form for the 2010 European School of Physics should be completed and sent as soon as possible. The application includes a 100-word summary of the student's current work that will be taken into consideration in the selection process.

The submission of the completed application form must be accompanied in parallel by a letter of reference and ranking from the student's professor or supervisor (signed and dated hard copy with letterhead of referee's institution). Applications without a reference letter will not be considered. The professor or supervisor's name and the date of the reference letter should be indicated in the appropriate boxes on the Web application form; and the letter should be sent to Helene Haller, the CERN Organizing Secretary (see Enquiries and Correspondence).

Please note that the letter of recommendation from the professor or supervisor should include a ranking of the candidate relative to other students at a similar stage in their careers.

Candidates should ensure that their application form and the letter of reference reach the CERN Organizing Secretary by 26 February 2010.

The selection of the students will be made by the International Organizing Committee together with the local director. All applicants will be informed early in March whether or not they have been selected.

Students who wish to apply but who do not have a suitable browser for the web-based application form may request a hard copy of the form from one of the Organizing Secretaries (see Enquiries and Correspondence) stating clearly their name and postal address. Their 100-word summary of current work should be sent by electronic mail to the CERN Organizing Secretary.
