Gran Sasso Summer Institute 2014 Hands-On Experimental Underground Physics at LNGS

22 September - 03 October 2014
INFN - Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, Assergi, Italy
The Gran Sasso Summer Institute, at its first edition in 2014, offers to a selected number of PhD students the opportunity to get directly involved into the research projects of LNGS, the world-leading laboratory for underground astroparticle physics and nuclear astrophysics. A series of lectures, held by an international pool of well-known scientists, provide the scientific background needed for the proposed activities. Hands-on activities focus on the following topics: - Dark matter (DAMA, XENON, DARK SIDE, CRESST) - Neutrinoless double beta decay (GERDA, CUORE, LUCIFER) - Neutrino oscillations (BOREXINO, OPERA, ICARUS) - Nuclear astrophysics (LUNA) - Low radioactivity measurements (STELLA) - Geodesy and general relativity (GINGER)
