Astroparticle School 2018 in Obertrubach

atlogoThe Astroparticle School is a well-established school taking place in the region of the Trubachtal, north of Nuremberg in Germany, supporting the further education of students and young postdoctoral scientists in the field of astroparticle physics.

In October 2018, they could celebrate its 15th edition and various professors and guests from whole Europe gave their contribution to the scientific program in topics including among others Gamma astronomy, neutrino physics, multimessenger astrophysics and dark matter.

5th International Workshop on New Photon-Detectors

PD18The International Workshop on New Photon-Detectors PD18 will take place at the University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan between Nov. 27th and 29th as the fifth edition in a PD workshop series.

The workshop aims at discussing recent progress and development of photo-sensors including SiPM, APD, Hybrid-PMT, MCP-PMT and other new photo-sensors. Their applications to different fields such as particle physics, nuclear physics, cosmic-ray physics, astronomy and medical sciences and the instrumentations related to the photo-detectors will also be covered.

The workshop program will be composed of plenary sessions with invited and contributed talks. There will also be poster sessions.

Details and updated information about the workshop will be available at the workshop webpage: http://www-conf.kek.jp/PD18 .

Abstract submission will be open from July 30 to September 28.

FAST closing meeting

FAST logo texteOver the last 4 years the FAST COST Action TD1401 established a multidisciplinary network that brings together European experts from academia and industry to ultimately achieve scintillator-based detectors with timing precision of better than 100ps, in particular to enable significant breakthroughs in diagnostic medicine and high luminosity particle physics. This September the closing meeting takes place in Athens from 26th to 28th.

This 5th annual meeting of COST Action TD1401 will take place at the CIVITEL-ATTIK Hotel as follow:

  • ESR meeting: Wednesday 26 September 2018, 13:00-18:00
  • General meeting: Thursday 27 September 2018, 8:30-18:00
                              Friday 28 September 2018, 9:00-14:00
  • Management Committee meeting (restricted): Thursday 27 September 2018, 18:00-20:00
