H2020-ARIEL project is announcing: Hispanos School (May 2020, Seville, Spain)

Important notice: due to the coronavirus outbreak, this event is postponed to a later date

HISPANOS Hands-On School on the production, detection and use of neutron beams

The registration is open until February 15th at the school website.  


School Description

The school, organized by the Universidad de Sevilla in the framework of the H2020 ARIEL project, aims at covering the experimental aspects related to the production, detection and use of neutron beams. To this purpose, the core of the school is a series of experiments that will be carried out at the HISPANOS facility at the Centro Nacional de Aceleradores (CNA) in Seville, Spain. The experiments will be complemented with lectures covering the production and detection of neutrons, nuclear data needs, physics research at large neutron beam facilities and with large neutron detectors, applications using  neutron beams, and a seminar on the career development in the neutron and nuclear data community.
