The 2010 edition of the Belgian Dutch German summer school (BND 2010) will take place from Monday, the 6th of September to Friday, the 17th of September in Ravelingen, Oostende. The school is intended primarily for experimental high energy physicists preparing a PhD in particle physics, in particular during their first two years. The lectures cover both theoretical and experimental aspects of the field. The focus of the school alternates every year between electroweak standard model physics and strong interaction physics. This year the focus for the theoretical part will be on the Quantum Chromo Dynamics. The school will take place at Ravelingen, Oostende which is located next to the sea-coast.
