The African School of Fundamental Physics and its Application has been established to build capacity to harvest and interpret the results of current and future physics experiments with particle accelerators, and to increase proficiency in related applications, such as medicine, and technologies, such as IT.
The school is being organized in a Sub-Saharan African country every second year and it is based on a close interplay between theoretical, experimental, and applied physics. The first school took place in Stellenbosch, South Africa on 1-21 August 2010 and the second edition of the biennial school in KNUST, Kumasi, Ghana from July 15th to Aug 4th 2012. The poster of the school can be downloaded here: PDF/JPEG.
School is a non-profit
organization, which provides
partial or full financial support
to 50 of the selected
priority to Sub-Saharan African students.
The lectures are addressed to students in Fundamental Physics with at least a background of 4 years of university formation. Lectures may be an interesting complement for PhD academic lectures. Depending on circumstances we may consider opening the school to young researchers as well.

In connection to ASP2012, a dedicated Grid School will follow on August 6-8 2012.
