The optimal support of top junior scientists is one of the decisive tasks for research institutions such as GSI and FAIR. An important instrument to achieve this goal is the international FAIR School. It is designed for young PhD students to get an overview on the whole FAIR science program. This summer, the established FAIR School will be held in its sixth edition and is currently open for application.

The international FAIR School will take place from September 8-13, 2019 in Castiglione della Pescaia in Italy. It will cover all scientific pillars of FAIR, i.e. APPA, CBM, NUSTAR, PANDA, as well as the accelerator complex and computing. As in previous years, the FAIR School will keep the highly successful format of lectures given by international FAIR experts in the morning and workshop sessions in the afternoon where the students will solve problems and tackle projects. It enables young scientists to participate in the international exchange and interaction with their fellow students from the FAIR partner countries.

The topics discussed at this event will cover the full range of FAIR relevant physics, covering fields from Atomic Physics, Plasma Physics, Heavy Ion Physics, Hadron Physics, Accelerator Physics, Nuclear Structure Physics and High Performance Computing. Here it will be made sure that the students also get the opportunity to see the big (global) picture, thus also projects similar to FAIR i.e. NICA and the RHIC Beam Energy Scan will be outlined.

The school will be organized jointly by the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS) – here especially the Frankfurt International Graduate School for Science (FIGSS) – and the FAIR Russia Research Centre (FRRC). Both institutes are renowned within the FAIR community. (BP)
