The International Iwate Collider School (ICS2024) will be held in Appi ski resort near Morioka in Iwate, Japan from February 26 to March 2, 2024. This is the third edition following ICS2023, and is hosted by the KEK-IINAS-NX and Iwate University.

Application submission deadline: December 8, 2023

During the school, students will learn a variety of topics in collider physics via lectures and tutorials for event simulation. Long lunch break for skiing and discussions are planned. We have invited experts in collider physics around the world as lecturers:

Celine Degrande (Louvain, Belgium)
Rikkert Frederix (Lund, Sweden)
Daniel Jeans (KEK, Japan)
Olivier Mattelaer (Louvain, Belgium)
Marco Zaro (Milan, Italy) etc.

Thanks to the support by KEK-IINAS-NX, Iwate U., Iwate Prefectural U., Iwate Prefecture International Linear Collider Promotion Council, and JSPS grant, there will be no registration fee, and local expenses will be covered.

We look forward to hosting the new generation of young researchers (both theorists and experimentalists) who will play a central role in particle physics adventure in the coming decades!
