Barcelona Techno Week 2018

TechnoWeekThe ICCUB and CERN organize a high-quality course on solid-state radiation detectors combined with laboratories, social events, a poster session and presentations from industry. The course covers from physics of interaction of radiation with matter, sensors and readout electronics to state-of-the-art reviews on radiation detection technologies and their applications.

The event will take place in Barcelona, from the 2nd to the 6th July 2018, and it is aimed at PhD students, researchers and industry professionals, working in related fields: particle detectors, astronomy, space, medical imaging, scientific instrumentation, material analysis, neutron imaging, process monitoring and control, etc.

ICASiPM 2018

PosterICASiPMThe International Conference on the Advancement of Silicon Photomultipliers, ICASiPM 2018 brings together experts from around the world to discuss the latest developments in silicon photomultipliers, future directions, and most importantly, the standardization of SiPM characterization.

The effort to standardize SiPM characterization has become imminent due to the rapid improvement of SiPMs in recent years and its equally rapid growing user community. Only by standardizing measurement procedures will it be possible to compare devices from different producers and results obtained by different users in a meaningful way, thus considerably accelerating development cycles of SiPM applications.

The Workshop program will consist of plenary sessions and poster exhibitions and an associated industrial exhibition from Monday to Friday.

The deadline for abstract submission is on March 31st.

IceCube Masterclass

MasterclassSENSE was present at the fifth edition of the IceCube Masterclass program in Geneva with a hands-on experiment measuring cosmic muons using a scintillator bar and SiPM detector. About 35 students and some professors took part and spent a full day in excellent activities lead by Prof. Teresa Montaruli together with Dr. Andrii Nagai and other colleagues.
