Registration can be started by filling and submitting the registration form.
Two payment options exist: direct credit card payment through the registration site or, alternatively, a bank transfer. Keep in mind that, for credit card payments, the credit-card companies charge a processing fee of about 2.5% (Visa and Mastercard) or about 3.7% (American Express). For the bank transfer option, please contact the organizers and arrangements will be made.
Registration is considered complete only after proof of payment is received. In case of anticipated payment delay, contact the organizers as soon as possible.
Like all previous courses, the number of participants is limited to 30 participants. Acceptance will be on a first come / first served basis. In case the limit on the number of participants is exceeded during the registration stage, a waiting list will be set up.

Then go to the ALBA reception area, where signalization will show you the course location. The course location is the “Tesla Training Room – P2 OF 26”, located in the 2nd Floor of the Office Building.
Once here, you will receive all the welcome information related to the course.
The course fee is of 440 CHF.
No particular experience with FLUKA or similar Monte-Carlo packages is required, however basic knowledge of LINUX/UNIX is necessary, as well as reasonably fluent use of a plain-text editor and the ability to navigate through a file tree. For newcomers, not only to FLUKA but also to Linux, we strongly recommend to have a look into a Linux tutorial in order to be able to profit at maximum from the FLUKA course.
Participants are welcome to come with their own laptop, having verified beforehand that an up-to-date version of FLUKA and Flair is up and running. Instructions will follow.
Rental laptops with the course material preinstalled can be made available upon requesting so at registrationt ime for an additional fee (see above).
