CNAF is happy to welcome external visitors in order to outline the activities carried out and to show technologies used in our datacenter. The main target for these visits is represented by University students in scientific subjects, but also high schools students or, in case of particular events, visitors with any background are welcome.

Tipically, the first part of the visit consists in a lesson introductive to the research and technological activities carried out at INFN and in particular at CNAF, with a different cut depending on the visitors background. Afterwards, visitors are conducted through the datacenter by CNAF staff people. The entire visit lasts more or less 2 hours / 2 hours and a half. Each visit can be attended by a maximum of 30 people.

CNAF personnel’s availability is not always guaranteed, so it is possible that we can not satisfy every requested visits.
