The course will present a full overview of the main characteristics of the Geant4 Monte Carlo toolkit, including Geant4 installation for Linux, geometry, tracking and physics processes. The goal of the course is to make the participants able to install Geant4 and to implement their own simple Geant4-based applications.

The course will cover one week (Monday-Friday), with both theoretical lessons (approx. 20 hours) and hands-on practical sessions (approx. 16 hours).

The course is open to researchers and students interested to Monte Carlo Methods, and in particular to physics of rare events. Basic knowledge of the C++ computing language is required.

There are no participation fees. A limited number of 20 participants can be admitted.
