The TAE (Taller de Altas Energías) International Summer School on High Energy Physics is a yearly international school aimed at completing the education of first and second year graduated students who are starting their research on experimental or theoretical High Energy Physics, Astroparticles and Cosmology. The program of the TAE International School combines courses and individual work supervised by Tutors. Lectures will be delivered in the mornings, whereas Tutorials on selected topics will be reserved for the afternoons. Students will work through the solutions of problems proposed by the lecturers with the help of a number of tutors. All students are also encouraged to present and discuss their work during specific Student Seminar sessions. The working language of the School will be English.

The 2017 edition will take place at Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual and is organized by the IFAE-Severo Ochoa Excellence Centre. The Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual (http://benasque.org/) is an international meeting infrastructure which provides excellent facilities and an agreeable atmosphere to allow the participants to interact with senior researchers and also to carry their work during the meeting. The lecture halls and the rooms for discussion sessions are located in the Centre. Computing and electronic communication facilities are available.

Benasque is a beautiful village located in the Spanish Pyrenees, just at the bottom of their highest mountain (Pico de Aneto), with a wonderful countryside/hiking environment.
