Welcome to the CERN Accelerator School!

The CERN Accelerator School holds training courses on accelerator physics and associated technologies for physicists, engineers, technicians and students. The courses take place in different member states of CERN and consist of a programme of lectures and tutorials spread over a period of one to two weeks. Participants are welcome from member states of CERN and other countries world-wide.

Right now Beam Dynamics and Technologies for Future Colliders ongoing until 6 March 2018 in Zurich, Switzerland

What our students say about us

The topics covered in the CERN Accelerator School were deeply interesting and varied covering many topics that have complemented my day to day work and greatly enriched my current research.

— Stuart Warren, ISOLDE
Student of Advanced Accelerator Physics, UK 2017

For a beginner like me, it was a very informative and helpful school, I could interact with people from different parts of the world and realize the opportunities ahead of me.

— Aqsa Shaikh, SAMEER
Student of JAS on RF Technologies, Japan 2017

I liked how many people from different research centers with different nationalities gathers in one place with one interested goal.
Also I like how the courses were well prepared to cover all the interested topics that I need.

— Mohammad AL-Najdawi, SESAME
Student of JAS on RF Technologies, Japan 2017

It's been a wonderful 10 days of studying together with colleagues around the world.

I enjoyed the multinational environment of great people and a great deal of knowledge that I got out of the lectures.

CAS provides opportunities: I gained new knowledge and friends, met with important people from the field, arranged for an interesting sabbatical, improved my future possibilities.

— Jiri Kral, CERN
Student of Advanced Accelerator Physics, UK 2017

I enjoyed the fact that the lectures were not only about vacuum but also about many interfacing fields such as radiation, cryogenics, and so on. Moreover, the experimental sessions made this school truly unique!!
