SiPM workshop: from fundamental research to industrial applications

SiPMworkshopThe conference “SiPM workshop: from fundamental research to industrial applications” will be held in Bari, Italy from October 2, 2019 to October 4, 2019.

The conference is organized by Università degli Studi di Bari, Politecnico di Bari and Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare di Bari. 

The main goal of the workshop is to review the main fields in which Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) are being employed, understand the present limitations and define R&D goals for their improvement.

Experts from different fields will meet to review SiPM requirements in their respective area of interest and discuss solutions, including most recent and emerging developments in SiPM design and production, front-end electronics, and new characterization methods for optimizing SiPM performances.

Participation from industry is welcomed and desired.

Abstract submission will be open from April 1 to June 15 and registration deadline is August 31 (early registration untli July 15).
