Activities & Calendar

Joint Annual Meeting SPS/OPG

Board meetings

The CHIPP Board meeting is composed by the professors with activities in experimental or theoretical particle, astroparticle and nuclear physics and the heads of the experimental and theoretical particle physics groups at Paul Scherrer Institute. Universities without activities in particle, astroparticle or nuclear physics may nominate one representative. Members that have retired from the active professional life or have acquired the status of Professor emeritus may be admitted as Honorary Board Members.

CHIPP PhD Winter School 2017

The Swiss Institute for Particle Physics (CHIPP) hosts an annual winter school based on the activities of the swiss institutes involved in particle and astro-particle physics. The purpose of the school is to offer young physicists an opportunity to learn about recent advances in elementary-particle physics from local and world-leading researchers. The school program includes lectures on accelerator and non-accelerator particle physics (detectors, LHC physics, neutrinos, astrophysics, flavor physics, future facilities) from an experimental and phenomenological perspective.
