XIII School of Fundamental Physics

About the activity

The School of Fundamental Physics began in 2005 in the city of Morelia to celebrate the International Year of Physics. This year 2018, the XIII edition will take place in the city of Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas, Mexico.


The objective of the School of Fundamental Physics is to motivate young students and introduce them to several basic subjects that are crucial to start a research career in particle physics. This school is aimed at advanced undergraduate and graduate students, both for their academic preparation and to encourage them and develop their interest and vocation in research in the area of particle physics.
