U.S. Particle Accelerator School

COVID-19 Update:

Our summer 2020 session with Stony Brook University is being postponed to June 14-25, 2021. We will use the same Melville, NY venue and we anticipate that the course offerings and format of the session will remain largely the same. Students will need to re-apply to the postponed session, but we will honor application support materials (cover letter, letter of recommendation, CV) submitted for summer 2020.
