					                  SLAC Geant4 Tutorial 09
                          SLAC - Kavli Auditorium
                           2-6 November 2009

 A five day hands-on course based on Geant4 version 9.2.p02.

 Lectures will cover all aspects of Geant4 from basic installation
 through advanced topics and will be interspersed with examples
 that build a progressively more complex application.

 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++.

         Welcome to Earthquake Country
   Be aware of exits in your building
        Speaker will indicate locations for this meeting
   Fire or other emergency evacuation
        Follow building residents out of building to the assembly area
   Earthquake
        Remain in building: Duck, cover, and hold position until shaking stops
        Evacuate building to assembly area outside (follow others)
        Stay away from windows, downed power lines
   In the event of an emergency
        Dial 9-911 from a SLAC phone; or
        Dial 911 from your cellular phone
        Provide SLAC address
         (2575 Sand Hill Road, Menlo Park, CA; cross street Saga Lane)

                                     Networking
   Security
      Anyone near the wireless access points could sniff the network and anyone
       with a laptop configured for wireless can connect to the visitor network.
      To protect any information you send across the network (especially passwords)
       you should use appropriate encryption technology such as SSH, SSL, or one-
       time password authentication.
   Recommended Settings and Information
      Wireless adapter card: 802.11b or 802.11g
      Network configuration: DHCP
      SSID: Set to visitor or to allow any value
      Network Type: Set to infrastructure
      Open access: No WEP, no data encryption, no registration or authentication
   Some Problem Areas To Avoid
      Bridging must be turned off or disabled
              for WindowsXP see Network Connections, right click on the wireless adapter.
               Check for bridging.
        Do not set the Network Type to Ad hoc
              for WindowsXP see Network Connections,
               right click on wireless adapter>Properties>Wireless Networks tab>Advanced.
               Select Access point (infrastructure) networks only
