COFI Summer Schools


School on Dark Matter and Neutrino Detection

July 23, 2018 – August 3, 2018
São Paulo, Brazil

The aim of the school is to introduce the students to the fields of particle Dark Matter and Neutrinos, share the excitement on model building and experiments, and prepare the new generations to contribute to this endeavor. The courses will provide a broad overview on the phenomenology and outstanding questions in these two fields and the detection methods that may shed light on these issues in the future.

2016 COFI Advanced Instrumentation and Analysis Techniques Summer School

July 11 – 19, 2016

Old San Juan, Puerto Rico


The goal of the school is to serve as enabler of science beyond the field of experimental physics. It would bring to the students the state-of-the-art detector instrumentation technologies and applications of high-energy  and astro-particle physics (medical and accelerators), analysis techniques, statistics and computing with large data. A diversified program that integrates topical academic courses with hands-on laboratories would extend and deepen the knowledge beyond what one would normally learn at a university.  The overall experience and skills taught would foster innovative ideas on Research and Development.
