The CERN Accelerator School (CAS) proposes a basic introductory course on CERN accelerators,

from 25 to 29 June 2018 at ESI, in Archamps (France).


This very compact course lasts only for 5 days and is non-residential for CERN participants.

A few places will be made available to people from outside CERN via the standard CAS registration.

For those students three hotels near the Archamps site will be available for accommodation.




For those students who will need accommodation please reserve your room at one of the following hotels

(all within walking distance of ESI)

IBIS Archamps (***)   

Best Western Porte Sud de Genève (****)
