SoUP 2021

SoUP 2021 (School of Underground Physics) is an advanced school for PhD students, post-docs and young researchers willing to acquire deeper knowledge in topics related to underground physics.

The school will will take place from 28 June to 2 July 2021 and it will be online only.

The school includes lectures and hands-on sessions on:

  • Physics
  • Detectors
  • Instrumentation technologies

The school is online and free of charge and there will be proceedings published on  Nuovo Cimento C for participants who present a poster. 

Registrations are now open, the deadline is in June, 6th, 2021.
