Aronsborg near Stockholm, Sweden
18 June – 1 July 2006


The 2006 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 University of Uppsala, Sweden.
The basic aim of the School is to teach various aspects of high-energy physics, but especially theory and phenomenology, to PhD students in experimental High Energy physics, mainly from the Member States of CERN and of JINR. However, the school is also open to a limited number of young PhD students in HEP phenomenology.

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. It should be noticed that some pre-knowledge of the subjects is necessary in order to be able to profit fully from the lecture courses.

> Date and Place of the School ^

The 14-th European School of High-Energy Physics will be held from June 18 to July 1, 2006 in Aronsborg, Sweden. The lectures will be given in Aronsborg Hotel, which is a hotel that also provides conference facilities.
Aronsborg Hotel is located on the shores of Lake Mälaren, only 35 km from Arlanda Airport, 45 km from Stockholm and 40 km from Uppsala. A more detailed map of the area can be seen here.

The closest town, Bålsta, is about 2 km away from Aronsborg. Many people from the Stockholm area come to Bålsta for weekends, and many have build summer residences there. Due to its attractive situation close to the large Mälaren lake several medieval castles were build in the area.

Another interesting town close to Aronsborg is Sigtuna which, in fact, is the earliest still existing Swedish town, and where its main street has been in use since 980 AD!
In Sigtuna one can see
Runic stones erected during the 11th century by wealthy citizens and merchant guilds, and with a total of over 150 runic inscriptions, it is more than can be seen in any other town in Sweden.

> Accommodation ^

Students, faculty and staff of the School will lodge in the Aronsborg Hotel where also breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served. Students will share double rooms with bathroom, TV and telephone. Sauna, steam bath, swimming pool, disco 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 surrounded by trees and green fields and with direct access to the lake and a marina where boats may be rented. For the mid-summer night on 23 June, an extremely popular event in Sweden, a special celebration is planned which will take place in these fields if weather permits. A link to such an event is shown here.

> Scientific Programme ^

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

Field Theory and Standard Model A. Pich - Univ. Valencia
QCD G. Ingelman - Uppsala Univ.
Flavour Physics and CP Violation I. Bigi - Univ. Notre Dame, US
Beyond the Standard Model R. Rattazzi - CERN
Neutrino Physics B. Kayser - Fermilab
Astrophysics and Cosmology V. Rubakov - INR Moscow
Heavy-Ion Physics L. McLerran - BNL
Monte Carlo Generators T. Sjöstrand - Lund Univ.
ICE CUBE/Amanda O. Botner - Uppsala Univ.
Linnaeus’ Search for Order M. Manktelov - Uppsala Univ.
Detectors for the Future T. Ekelöf - Uppsala Univ.

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, June 22.

> Discussion Sessions ^

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

The discussion sessions will be led by:

J. Rathsman Uppsala Univ.
L. Lönnblad Lund Univ.
A. Pivovarov INR Moscow
A. Arbuzov JINR
S. Pascoli CERN
G. Corcella Rome Univ.
> 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: 2003, 2002 , 2001 , 2000 and 1999.

> Travel ^

Students should arrange to arrive in Aronsborg for registration during the afternoon or evening of Sunday, June 18. The school will end on the morning of Saturday, July 1 after breakfast.

Stockholm airport, Arlanda, is only 45 km away from Aronsborg. There are regular buses every hour from Arlanda to Bålsta. On the day of arrival a pick-up service will be organized.

More and up-to-date information about train/bus 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 1850 Swiss Francs per student, and will cover tuition, board and lodging from dinner on Sunday June 18 to breakfast on Saturday July 1, 2006, 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 Aronsborg 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).

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

Details concerning the method of payment of the Fee will be sent together with the acceptance letters.

> 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.

> 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 2006 European School of Physics should be completed and sent as soon as possible and must be received by the closing date of March 5, 2006, (New Date).

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 5, 2006, (new date).

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