The 2005 European School of High-Energy Physics (formerly the CERN-JINR School of Physics) will be jointly organized by the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR), Dubna, Russia, and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), Geneva, Switzerland together with the Institutes for High-Energy Physics in Innsbruck and Vienna, Austria.
The basic aim of the School is to teach various aspects of high-energy physics, but especially theory and phenomenology, to young experimental physicists, mainly from the Member States of CERN and of JINR.

The Schools of Physics are designed to give a survey of up-to-date information, rather than to be a training course. An outline of each of the lecture courses and reading lists will be published on the web.

> Date and Place of the School ^

The 13-th European School of High-Energy Physics will be held from August 21 to September 3, 2005 in Kitzbühel. The lectures will be given in the Kitzhof Hotel , which is a hotel that also provides conference facilities.

Astron Resort Kitzbühel

Kitzhof Hotel 

Kitzbühel is a famous hiking and skiing resort in the Tyrol, internationally well known for its Hahnenkamm ski race (men's downhill on the Streif). The location is one hour from Innsbruck, and 1.5 hours from Munich and Salzburg.

Set midway between Innsbruck and Salzburg, this popular ski resort, founded in the late 13-th century as a mining town, offers a variety of things to see. In its lovely old town, you'll find the local museum, the 15th-century St. Andrew's Parish Church, the 16th-century Lebenberg Castle (now a hotel) and fine Tirolean architecture. During the summer you can swim in the Schwarzsee (lake) or take a stroll through the Alpine flower garden on the Kitzbüheler Horn. Some of Austria's best golf courses are there as well. []

> Accommodation ^

Students, faculty and staff of the School will lodge in the Kitzhof Hotel where also breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served. Students will share double rooms with bathroom, TV and telephone. Sauna, steam bath and fitness area may be used free of charge. The lecture hall and the rooms for the discussion sessions are also situated in the hotel, which will be equipped with computing and electronic communication facilities.

The hotel is 200 m from the city center. It is surrounded by trees and green fields and has beautiful views to the mountains.

> Scientific Programme ^

The preliminary scientific programme is as follows (Draft Programme):

Field Theory and Standard Model W. Buchmüller (DESY)
QCD G. Ecker (University of Vienna)
Flavour Physics and CP Violation R. Fleischer (CERN)
CP Violation in K-decays: experimental aspects M. Jeitler (HEPHY, Vienna)
CP Violation in B-decays: experimental aspects L. Widhalm (HEPHY, Vienna)
Beyond the Standard Model J. Ellis (CERN)
Neutrino Physics M. Lindner (Technical University Munich)
Astrophysics and Cosmology R. Kolb (Fermilab)
Heavy Ions L. McLerran (BNL)

There will be 32 lectures in all, each lasting about 75 minutes, with additional time for questions and discussion.
Students will be encouraged to present their current research work in the form of a special poster session which is planned for Thursday, August 25.

> Discussion Sessions ^

Discussion sessions, which are intended to clarify points which may be obscure from the lectures, will be held most afternoons and will last about 75 minutes.

The discussion sessions will be led by:

H. Eberl HEPHY, Vienna
H. Markum Technical University, Vienna
A. Gladyshev JINR, Dubna
S. Troitsky INR, Moscow
A. Ibarra IFT, Madrid
S. Huber CERN
> Language ^

The working language of the School will be English. Participants should therefore have a good understanding of English to enable them to benefit from the School.

> Proceedings ^

The School Proceedings will be published as a CERN Yellow Report in 2006. Each participant will receive one copy free of charge. Proceedings from earlier schools are available: 2002 , 2001 , 2000 and 1999.

> Travel ^

map taken from Students should arrange to arrive in Kitzbühel for registration during the afternoon or evening of Sunday, August 21. The school will end on the morning of Saturday, September 3 after breakfast.

Nearby airports are in Innsbruck (Kranebitten), Munich (Franz Josef Strauss) and Salzburg (Maxglan) with train connections to Kitzbühel. At the Kitzbühel train station a pick-up service to the hotel (5 min. by car) will be organized during Sunday, August 21. For those arriving by car, please note that parking places are available in the underground car park of the hotel.

More and up-to-date information about train schedules, pick-up service, etc. will be posted at this web page in an upcoming announcement.

> Cost ^

The cost of the School will be around 1650 Swiss Francs per student, and will cover tuition, board and lodging from dinner on Sunday August 21 to breakfast on Saturday September 3, 2005, as well as coffee, tea or cold drinks during the morning and afternoon breaks and some social activities. It does not include travel expenses from participants' home institutes to Kitzbühel and back.

For participants from JINR and CIS there are special arrangements for paying the School Fee and for travel. For further information, please contact the JINR Organizing Secretary, Mrs. T.S. Donskova (see Enquires and Correspondence below).

It is hoped that INTAS (the International Association for the Promotion of Cooperation with Scientists from the Independent States of the former Soviet Union) will provide funds for students working in former Soviet Union countries.

Details concerning the method of payment of the Fee will be published in the second Bulletin.

> 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. 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.

> Application ^

Applications to attend the School should include:

For the Application Form remember to fill in ALL fields: use "N/A" when "Not Applicable".

The application form for the 2005 European School of Physics should be completed and sent as soon as possible and must be received by the closing date of March 31, 2005.
The 100-word summary should be sent by completing the appropriate section in the Web application form.

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 Danielle Métral, the CERN Organizing Secretary (see Enquiries and Correspondence below).

Students who wish to apply but who do not have a suitable browser for the Web application form should 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.

Candidates should ensure that their application, letter of reference and 100-word summary reach the CERN Organizing Secretary by March 31, 2005.

The selection of the students will be made by the Organizing Committee; and all applicants will be informed in April 2005 whether or not they have been selected.
