Geant4 Tutorial
July 9-13, 2012
Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility
Newport News, Virginia USA


A five day hands-on course based on Geant4 version 9.5.p01will be held at Jefferson Lab on July 9-13, 2012. The tutorial is jointly composed by SLAC Geant4 developers and will cover both high energy/nuclear physics and medical applications. Lectures will cover all aspects of the toolkit from basic installation through advanced topics and will be interspersed with examples that build a progressively more complex application extensible to real space or medical use.

The course should be of interest both to complete novices and to those who already have some basic familiarity with Geant4. Participants are expected to have a reasonable knowledge of C++.

The number of participants is limited to 109. Registration is now closed. To be put on our waiting list, please contact

The tutorial will start on Monday morning (July 9) and end on Friday afternoon (July 13). A 1-hour tour of the Jefferson Lab main accelerator and some experimental halls will be provided for up to 20 participants. More information will be provided at the beginning of the tutorial.
