Thank you for participating in the School!

All the material used in the School is available in the Github repository of the HighNESS project. Please find the link in the menu on the left, under "School Material". You can also find the Virtual Machine with all the software preinstalled (instructions to use it are in the repository).

Registration closed - See you at the School!

This event aims at providing graduate students and early career researchers with tools to model the interaction of low energy neutrons with matter, with applications to neutron thermalization, nuclear data, neutron moderators, neutron reflectors and neutron scattering instruments.

The school will cover both theory, development and application of thermal scattering kernels using state of the art free software for neutron simulation in cloud computing environments.


  • Thermal neutron scattering theory,
  • Simulation of vibrational properties using Density Functional Theory,
  • Monte Carlo simulation of neutron transport,
  • Generation and sampling of scattering kernels using NCrystal.

The school will be held in person at the European Spallation Source Campus in Lund, Sweden. Course costs will be covered by the HighNESS project, but registration will be required due to limited space availability.
