The aim of the School is to cover topics in both experimental and theoretical astroparticle physics. The program of the school will include three main lecture courses followed by tutorials, practical and discussion sessions, together with several separate lectures, special session for participants presentations and excursion to underground laboratories of the Baksan Neutrino Observatory. The School is addressed to advanced masters students, graduate students and postdocs working in astroparticle physics.
The School will be held in a picturesque place in Baksan valley, a Natonal Park on the slopes of Mt. Elbrus, the highest summit in Europe and a famous alpine and ski resort. The program of the school previews 4-hour mid-day breaks for outdoor activities.
