Workshop on “Simulation & Data Analysis techniques for High Energy Cosmic Ray Experiments”
March 23-25, 2009
Department of Physics, Gauhati University, Guwahati-781014, Assam, India
The Department of Physics, Gauhati University in collaboration with TIFR, Mumbai, announces a workshop on “Simulation and data analysis techniques for high energy cosmic ray Experiments” to be held at Gauhati University during March 23-25, 2009. Details of the programme are placed below. Applications are invited for participation in the said programme.
The mysterious and currently unknown origin of the most energetic cosmic ray particles has triggered theoretical speculations and development of several new detection concepts and experimental projects. The field of high energy cosmic rays is therefore highly interdisciplinary and borrows from Astrophysics and Cosmology, Particle Physics and Observational Astronomy. Developed in parallel to the accelerator experiments, cosmic ray experiments have gained importance for astrophysical reasons and progress in the state of the art technologies. These are based on simulation and handling of enormous amount of experimental data. The main objective of this workshop is to familiarize and give first-hand exposure to the latest developments in experimental data analysis tools for high energy astro-particle research.
This workshop is intended for anyone associated or in collaboration with detector based experiments seeking fundamental understanding of Nature. The presentations at the workshop are aimed at providing the participants with latest methodologies in handling simulation and data analysis in the fields of HE physics, cosmic rays, astronomy and astro-particle physics.
Topics to be discussed : 1. Detector overview & data acquisition, 2. Monte Carlo simulation, 3. Data analysis using ROOT software, 4. Statistical analysis & interpretation of Physics results.
Eligibility/who can apply/TA/DA: Faculty members of Universities/Research institutes/Colleges, research scholars and highly motivated final year M. Sc. physics students are invited to apply for participation. Selection will be on the basis of merit judged by a letter of recommendation for students/researchers and a brief statement of research interest for college teachers/scientists. Selected participants will be provided local hospitality and paid TA/DA as applicable.
How to apply: Application can be sent through proper channel containing details of the applicants name, age, sex, name of the institution to which attached, designation, address for communication, telephone number, Email ID, qualification, highest degree awarded to the following addresses, along with name of referee who will send recommendation.
