12th Fluka Course, Jefferson Lab, Newport News, VA, USA
Dates of course: April 30 - May 4, 2012
FLUKA is a fully integrated particle physics Monte-Carlo simulation package. It has many applications in high energy experimental physics and engineering, shielding, detector and telescope design, cosmic ray studies, dosimetry, medical physics and radio-biology. More information, as well as related publications can be found on the FLUKA website. The course will help professionals working in the Monte Carlo radiation transport fields to understand the various functions and attributes of the code.
The event is organized with the support Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility.
Course Fee & Registration
No particular experience with FLUKA or similar Monte-Carlo packages is required, however basic knowledge of LINUX/UNIX is welcome. For newcomers, not only to FLUKA but also to Linux, we strongly recommend to have a look into a Linux tutorial in order to be able to profit at maximum from the FLUKA course.
Linux laptop machines will be arranged as needed.
If you have your own laptop that you would prefer to use during the course, we would kindly ask you to bring it along and inform the course organization committee about it. It is important to verify the correct functioning of FLUKA and FLAIR (with the geoviewer-plugin) prior to the course start. If you experience problems, please contact us in advance in order to avoid installation and configuration problems during the course. You can find additional information concerning installation, needed libraries, etc. in the FLUKA Discussion Mailing List or the FAQs.

FLUKA can run in a virtual machine, most preferably through Oracle's VirtualBox. Ensure that you have the required memory:
