For those that might be interested, here is the e-mail announcement:

Announcing the 4th CERN-Fermilab Hadron Collider Physics Summer School

Dear Colleague

The 4th CERN-Fermilab Hadron Collider Physics Summer School will be held at CERN from June 8-17 2009. The CERN-Fermilab Hadron Collider Physics Summer School is targeted particularly at young postdocs in experimental High Energy Physics (HEP), as well as senior PhD students in HEP phenomenology, working towards the completion of their thesis project.

The School will include ten days of lectures and discussions, with one free day in the middle of the period. Scholarship funds will be available to support some participants. Updated information and online applications are available at the school web site:

The deadline for applications and reference letters is February 21st, 2009.

Please circulate this announcement to whomever could be interested to participate in this school.

Best Regards,

[Local organizing committee]

One can look at previous schools to get a feel for the content of the lectures. Note that this does appear to conflict with TASI09 and part of the SUSY09 conference.

By the way, the deadline for the Spring School on Superstring Theory is in a month. Those of you of the stringy persuasion might want consider applying since there appear to be no other major string schools in 2009. (We’re still waiting to hear whether Perimeter will be hosting a summer school this year.)
