Fourth Lisbon mini-school on Particle and Astroparticle Physics

The Lisbon mini-school on Particle and Astroparticle Physics provides under-graduated students with a comprehensive introduction to the field, covering both theoretical and experimental aspects.

This school will give insigth to recent discoveries and to open challenges and will stress the research opportunities in the field in Portugal.

The school is mainly aimed to third year under-graduated students who have completed the course in Quantum Mechanics I.

Physics at the LHC

A course, organized by LIP, will be taking place and focus on the physics that can be exploited at the Large Hadron Collider (in the framework of IDPASC). The objective of the course is to introduce the physics, analysis methods and results on the physics areas covered by the LHC experiments. Emphasis is placed on the search for new physics, in particular phenomena at the basis of the electroweak symmetry breaking.
