The twenty-first Exotic Beam Summer School (EBSS2024) will be held at the Argonne Tandem-Linac Accelerator System (ATLAS) facility at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) outside Chicago, Illinois, USA, from July 14 - 20, 2024 (arrival on the evening of Sunday, July 14th, and departure on the morning of Saturday, July 20th).


The aim of the school is to educate early career researchers about the excitement and challenges of rare isotope beam science. Through these schools, the research community will be able to more fully exploit the opportunities created by the next-generation exotic beam facilities, such as the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams in the U.S.


A unique feature of this summer school series is the hands-on activities, where students spend their afternoons in the laboratory, learning about the techniques and instrumentation needed to carry out experiments with radioactive beams. In the mornings, lectures on a variety of topics (experimental, theoretical, and applied) will be given by experts in their fields.


EBSS2024 is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, and the following laboratories: ANL, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), and the Association for Research at University Nuclear Accelerators (ARUNA). The school, held annually, rotates among the various laboratories and is specifically designed for graduate students and postdocs (within two years of a PhD degree).
