Summer Students Lectures

Every year, a series of lectures developed for the CERN openlab summer students is given by CERN IT experts on advanced CERN-related topics.

The series of lectures organised before the fourth phase of CERN openlab, which started in 2012, are available to you on the website covering the former phases. If you wish to consult one of those please click on the ad hoc year below:
2005 - 2006 - 2007 - 2008 - 2009 - 2010 - 2011 -

The 2013 programme has been announced, but possible changes may take place. Please consult the website regularly for the latest information regarding the lectures.
