Registration for the third edition of the European School in Instrumentation for Particle and Astroparticle Physics [ESIPAP] is now open.

ESIPAP was founded by the laboratory of excellence ENIGMASS and offers advanced and intensive modular courses in  instrumentation for students (Master and Ph.D.) and for professionals.

The School will take place at the European Scientific Institute [ESI] in Archamps (France) close to Geneva. Laboratory sessions will be held at CERN.

The organisation of ESIPAP is similar to that of JUAS, the Joint University Accelerator School. The courses are organised in two modules of one month each, which can be followed together or separately. All lectures will end with an evaluation of the students, giving to ESIPAP the possibility to deliver ECTS that can be recognised in European university training programs.

ESIPAP has an established collaboration with the Universities of Strasbourg, Grenoble, Savoie and INP Grenoble and seeks to develop further partnerships with European universities.

This third edition of the School will be held from January 25th to March 18th 2016. The deadline for applications is the 30th of November 2015.

Peerage of Science

There is a broad consensus that Peer review is the cornerstone of academic publishing. However, there is also a widespread perception that it currenntly has severe problems. Peerage of Science [PoS] is a free service that proposes to solve the issues of peer review with a radically reworked reviewing process []. In the service, the author submits the manuscript to a single peer review process and the reviewed and revised manuscript is offered by PoS for concurrent consideration by any respected journal within the field. PoS features Open Engagement - any qualified, vetted scientists with user account can freely engage to review what they want.
