Scientific writing

We have found a new trainer, which was spotted by CERN engineers attending a conference, where his intervention was highly appreciated by all.
Raymond Boxman has also written a good book on this topic, which is available in the CERN library (paper and electronic)

The format is 4 consecutive half-days, with homework every day. We have planned a session in May, and another one in September.

Enrolment is open for both of them.

Please note that we also have places available on a very complimentary course Convincing Scientific Presentations, which is scheduled in the beginning of May.


We would like you to make publicity for these courses, especially to the doctoral students in your department.

Respecting Privacy in the processing of personal data at CERN

With the publication of OC11, those people who process Personal Data might want to check if their practices are in line with the principles set out by the Organisation.

Our aim is to reach in first instance all service owners (some 200 at CERN), but the course is open to anyone who processes Personal Data.

There are sessions in English and French, and the course is highly rated by those who have attended the sessions already organised so far.

More sessions can be organised if no seats are available anymore

An excellent programme is planned, consisting of lectures and hands-on exercises selected from a range of proposals by past CSC students, and focusing on the following domains:

·         Artificial Intelligence

·         Machine Learning

·         Pattern Recognition

·         Big Data

·         Container Orchestration

·         Tensor Networks

·         Computational Physics

·         Numerical Analysis

·         Track Finding

During the hands-on exercises, you will have a chance to learn various technologies such as Keras and TensorFlow, FPGAs, Kubernetes, Hadoop, Apache Spark and others.

More details, including the timetable:

Coffee will be served as of 8:30am and the booklet (which includes the lecture slides and notes) will be distributed during the school, while stocks last.
