The IDPASC Network is organizing its annual European school in Particle Physics, Cosmology, Astroparticle Physics and Astrophysics, in Nazaré, Portugal from 06th to 16th September, 2021.

The 10th edition of yearly IDPASC schools is organized by LIP with the support of Portuguese Science Foundation (FCT) and the City Hall of Nazaré. The students will benefit from classes given by high-level experts in the fields of Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology and tutorials given by senior PhD students or postdocs.

Due to the new corona virus pandemic, the space capacity will be reduced, following all the recommended safety procedures. For this edition, the school will be limited to the participation of 20 students.

Considering the current implemented measures at national airports, upon arrival, all passengers must present a valid RT-PCR test, negative for COVID-19, carried out within 72 hours before boarding.

For the health and safety of all participants and staff in light of the current Covid-19 virus pandemic, all the students and speakers will be required to show proof of vaccination or negative test result for COVID-19. Rapid antigen tests will also be provided during the school.

The registration for the 10th IDPASC School is open from 17th May until 15th July 2021 and the fee is 700€ (accommodation, coffee-breaks and meals included).
For the students with a fellowship from the FCT PhD programmes, IDPASC-PT and PT-CERN, the fee and travel expenses will be fully covered.
