As the inaugural event of the Celebration of 60 Years of Computing in Glasgow, the School of Computing Science is hosting the CERN 2017 Spring Campus on the 4-7th April. The Spring Campus is dedicated to Information Technology and Computing and brings a new dimension to CERN’s scientific and cultural activities. Over four intensive days, this event will bring together experts from around CERN, to meet with future engineers and scientists in a program of scientific and technological dissemination and cultural exchange.
The core programme will consist of 25 hours of sessions from specialists in their respective fields, covering topics such as information technology, internet security, software development, team work, project management and software testing.
Along with the lectures, the campus includes hackathon challenges and two social events in the Hunterian Museum and West Brewery, where speakers and students will share time together, opening a door to the students to know more about CERN or ask questions related to the school. Students will be immersed during four days in a multicultural environment where all activities, sessions and debates will be in English promoting the interchange of cultures and thoughts.
The target audience is primarily final year BSc students and MSc students in the field of Computer Science or related, who want to know more about the latest technologies and industry trends in IT, although other students are welcome to make an application. Applications are also welcome from students from other Universities.
Registration for the Campus costs £50, covering all four days. Registration includes a welcome pack containing an event t-shirt, pen and notepad. Registration also includes lunches for all four days, tea, coffee and snacks during breaks and drinks and canapes at the evening social events.
