School concept

The increasing complexity of instrumentation development and control, as well as the increase in data volumes requiring novel data acquisition and analysis approaches, are creating new and common challenges in several disciplines of physics. To face these challenges, scientists need to develop new advanced methodologies. The goal of HELIOS is to merge competences from different physics domains in instrumentation development and control as well as data acquisition and data handling, to tackle specific scientific challenges and to prepare young scientists for the next generation of instruments. The interdisciplinary approach of this school, across different domains including particle physics, molecular physics, nano(bio) science, and ultrafast photon science, will allow us to engineer novel solutions for instrumentation development and data acquisition at the next generation of photon and particle sources.
