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 9th FLUKA School will be conducted jointly by the Health Physics Division and Radiation Safety Systems Division of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC). The dedicated school will help professionals working in the Monte Carlo radiation transport fields to understand the various functions and attributes of the code. The course will start with the basic ideas but will quickly progress to the advanced aspects of the code. Few examples from the participants will be taken up during the course.
