Geant 4 at SLAC

Geant4 Tutorial 2016 @ Southern Methodist University

Room 0131, Dedman Life Science Building.
May 16th-19th, 2016

This is a four day hands-on tutorial course based on Geant4 version 10.2-patch01 hosted by Department of Physics, Southern Methodist University. It will cover all the application domains including high energy and nuclear physics, astrophysics and space engineering, medical applications and newly arising material science.

The lectures will cover all aspects of the toolkit of Geant4 version 10.2-patch01 from basic installation through advanced topics including multithreading, and will be interspersed with hands-on sessions that build a progressively more complex application extensible to real use.

The course should be of interest both to complete novices and to those who already have some basic familiarity with Geant4. Participants are expected to have a reasonable knowledge of C++ and Linux OS.


The tutorial starts in the morning of May 16th (Monday) and runs through the afternoon of May 19th (Thursday). The preliminary agenda is here. Tutorial slides and hands-on instructions will be linked to the agenda by the start of the tutorial.

Laptop Required

At the Hands-on, we will use the SMU computing farm where the latest Geant4 has already been installed. Participant should still bring a laptop with X-window. The tutorial organizers will not offer any terminal/laptop.


The capacity is limited to 75 on a first-come-first-served basis.

       Registration is OPEN - secure registration page is here.


The tutorial organizers will not offer lodging services. Given the week of this tutorial is just after the graduation, we foresee nearby hotels will fill up quickly. Thus, book your hotel as soon as possible.
