XV Seminar on Software for Nuclear, Subnuclear and Applied Physics


GEANT4 School



The "XV Seminar on Software for Nuclear, Subnuclear and Applied Physics will be hold in Alghero from May 27th till June 1st. The event is organised by CSFNSM, INFN and the University of Sassari. 


When and Where: 


27 May - 01 June


Hotel Porto Conte - Alghero


The Seminar is organized in didactical units on software developed and used in medical physics.

The lectures also include a full school of  the Geant4 Monte Carlo simulation toolkit and a series of lessons on the basics of the C++ programming. The C++ and Geant4 sections consist of a series of lectures followed by hands-on sessions. The courses aim to make the participants able to run user applications, simple but comprehensive, based on Geant4.
Lessons will be devided over 5 days (from Monday to Friday) and will also include lectures on software development in applied physics.


Geant4 ( is a software toolkit, written in C ++, for simulating the tracking of particles in the matter with the Monte Carlo approach. The software is developed and maintained by an INTERNATIONALCollaboration ( of scientists belonging to different institutions, including INFN. Geant4 can be used for applications in high energy physics, astrophysics, medical physics, particle astrophysics and nuclear physics. The software provides all the tools needed to a complete Monte Carlo simulation of the experimental set-up, including modeling of geometry, detector response, event management and user interface. In Geant4 there is a wide range of physical models capable of describing interactions of particles with matter; there are several alternative models, which can be chosen by the user for many physical processes. Geant4 source code and libraries are freely available, along with manuals, from the Geant4 HOME page.
