The International Iwate Collider School (ICS2023) will be held in Appi ski resort near Morioka in Iwate, Japan from February 27 to March 4, 2023. This is the second edition following ICS2022, and is hosted by the KEK-IINAS-NX and Iwate University. The school will be held in a hybrid form.

Registration deadline: December 18, 2022 (on-site), February 17, 2023 (online)

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:

Rikkert Frederix (Lund, Sweden)
Benjamin Fuks (Paris, France)
Fabio Maltoni (Louvain, Belgium) [online]
Olivier Mattelaer (Louvain, Belgium)
Davide Pagani (Bologna, Italy) etc.

Thanks to the support by KEK-IINAS-NX, Iwate U., JSPS grant and Iwate Prefecture International Linear Collider Promotion Council, 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!
