posterRICH18 smallThe workshop will present "state of the art" and future developments in Cherenkov light imaging techniques for applications in High Energy Physics, Nuclear Physics and Astroparticle Physics.

The topics of the Workshop will be: Cherenkov light imaging in particle and nuclear physics experiments, Cherenkov detectors in astroparticle physics, Novel Cherenkov imaging techniques for future experiments,Photon detection for Cherenkov counters,Pattern recognition and data analysis,Alternative PID techniques,Technological aspects and applications of Cherenkov detectors,Remembering Pavel Cherenkov.

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.
