To simplify the practical sessions all delegates are requested to install on their laptops a Virtual Machine, containing GEANT4 9.6.p02 version. That ensures the same results of the simulations, independent of the platform. The recommended Virtual Machine can be downloaded from: http://geant4.in2p3.fr/spip.php?rubrique8&lang=en
