The Online Baikal Summer School, which took place on July 12-17, has finished. The school is organized by the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (Dubna) and Irkutsk State University.

School participants from Russia, Armenia, Brazil, Egypt, India, Romania, Ukraine have had the opportunity to present their reports on their scientific activities and achievements, and listen to colleagues. Leading scientists such as Professor Manfred Jeitler from CMS (the collaboration of the Large Hadron Collider) and Alessandro Papa from the University of Calabria (Italy) delivered lectures on modern problems of Physics, Neutrino Physics, the development of the Theory of Elementary Particles, the state of experiments on accelerators and large underwater detectors.

“Thanks to the organizers, students can find out what is happening in modern Physics,” says ISU graduate Mr Alexei Kampf. He also emphasizes the importance of practicing speaking in English to help students in the future. A third-year student of the Faculty of Physics, Ms Alexandra Ivanova, said that the School helped her to determine her future research activities.
