The objective of this school is to provide a 2 weeks high-profile training on particle physics phenomenology, theoretical quantum field theory, lattice field theory and associated topics in algorithmics and HPC practices. The event has a capacity of 45 students, 15 of which will be the EuroPLEx fellows. The 30 non-EuroPLEx students will be selected on academic ground by the Local Organising Committee of the School.

EuroPLEx (European network for Particle physics, Lattice field theory and Extreme computing) is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme.

Due to the ongoing travel restrictions, the school will be held as a fully virtual event, organised from the University of Edinburgh. This means that lectures will be offered in UK time zone.

The main aim of the event is to provide a world-leading set of lectures in an exceptional environment, in order to forge a strong community amongst the current generation of PhD students. The EuroPLEx Summer School is strongly committed to diversity.
