The Coordinated Theoretical-Experimental Project on QCD


will organize and conduct the
CTEQ School
QCD and Electroweak Phenomenology

Peking University (PKU), Beijing
8 - 18 July 2014

The school will be locally hosted by Peking University (PKU), and the Monte Carlo Tutorial Sessions will be organized with the cooperation of the MCnet Collaboration.

Application Form

To apply for the School please fill out the online application form.

The online form will collect your basic contact information, a SHORT statement of current research (just a few sentences), and allow you to upload an (optional) "Curriculum Vitae & Publications" document. It will also send an email request for a letter of reference to someone you specify. All materials are collected online via the AcademicJobsOnline website; do not send hard-copies of any materials.

Applications are now closed.

Enrollment will be limited to 80 participants.

A registration fee of US$550 covers the participant's portion of lodging as well as most meals. A limited number of fellowships covering all or part of the registration fee will be available.

Visa Application

A valid visa is REQUIRED for non-residents of China to attend the school. Participants can apply for either a tourist visa (L) or a business/visitor visa (F) for entry. An official support letter from the school organizers is required and will be provided for the issue of a business/visitor visa. Please contact Chinese embassy/ Consulate/ Visa Office nearby for visa application at least 2 months prior to your traveling.
