8th Fluka Course, Demokritos, Athens, Greece

Dates of course: 30 March - 3 April, 2009
Registration is closed!


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.

This year, FLUKA in collaboration with NCSR Demokritos is organizing a FLUKA beginner's course in Athens. This dedicated training is intended to give the opportunity to both, learning the basics about FLUKA for new users, as well as deepening the knowledge about the underlying models for more experienced users. The course is open to everybody already using FLUKA, or intending to do so.

Course Fee

  • A course contribution of 350 EUR is required to enrol for the course. The fee is entirely used to cover travel and lodging costs of the lecturers, course material, a guided tour and coffee breaks.
  • An official dinner will be organised, however this (and related costs) will be proposed directly during the course.
  • To include a buffet-lunch on every day of the course, an extra 50 EUR will be required. Please select the appropriate option in the registration page.

Prior Knowledge

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 you to have a look into a Linux tutorial in order being able to profit at maximum from the FLUKA course.

Personal Laptop

If you have your own laptop that you would prefer to use during the course we would kindly ask you bringing it along and inform the course organization committee about it. If possible, please verify the correct functioning of FLUKA and FLAIR already prior to the course start. If you experience problems, please contact us ahead of the course in order to avoid installation and configuration problems during the actual course. You can find additional information concerning installation, needed libraries, etc. in the FLUKA Questions Mailing List or the FAQs.
