Useful documents


On this page we have prepared several documents for you to download. They contain the information that you can find on this website as well as many additional details and a lot of technical background information. In case something is not clear to you in these documents: don't panic! There are many friendly people – our national contacts – who will be happy to answer your questions.

The beam and detector document is the most important document for the preparation of your proposal. It provides you with information about the beamline and details about the available detectors that you can use for your experiment. In the example experiments document you can find short descriptions of experiments that are possible to carry out with the beamline and material provided by us. Let yourself get inspired. The invitation gives you all the details about how to participate in the competition in a single document. A short one-page description in several languages can be found at the bottom of the page. Please also read the terms and conditions that apply to all participants. Furthermore, some promotional material is being provided: our logo, poster and flyer.

Furthermore, here you can find the recording of our latest TED-Ed call including presentations about CERN and BL4S and answers to many questions from students around the world.
