Joint International Accelerator School

The U.S. Particle Accelerator School, the CERN Accelerator School, the Asian Committee on Future Accelerators and the Budker Institute for Nuclear Physics in Russia are partners in organizing the Joint International Accelerator School. This international series compliments the general schools by providing in-depth courses and seminars in specialized areas. It is also hoped that these schools will foster a collaborative atmosphere among the accelerator communities of the four regions in scholarly work, both writing and teaching.
