The short-term studentship scheme is now accepting applications, including for our industrial and outreach projects. The last few studentships are now available. The next closing date is the last Friday in January.

The LHC@home project is seeking a short-term student to work on the development of a web-based system that enables jobs on volunteer nodes, clusters and commercial clouds.

The next network meeting will be held in Goettingen April 4th-6th 2016 aimed at all members of the network, but especially our students and postdocs.

MCnet is funded by Marie Curie Actions

MCnet is a European Union funded Marie Curie Initial Training Network dedicated to developing and supporting general-purpose Monte Carlo event generators throughout the LHC era and beyond, and providing training of a wide selection of its user base, particularly through funded short-term 'residencies' and Annual Schools.

Monte Carlo event generators are central to high energy particle physics. They are used by almost all experimental collaborations to plan their experiments and analyze their data, and by theorists to simulate the complex final states of the fundamental interactions that may signal new physics. The network incorporates all the authors of current general purpose event generators, and has the main purposes of: These training objectives are being achieved both through dedicated activities and through our outreach and research activities:
