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).

CTA symposium

Screenshot 2019 02 06 CTA SymposiumThe theme for the First CTA Symposium is “Science opportunities with CTA” and will take place at the historical Teatro Duse in Bologna 6-9 May 2019 (https://www.cta-symposium.com). It will focus on the novel investigations CTA will bring to the field and its synergies with other wavebands and messengers. It will also cover instrument characteristics, analysis tools and opportunities for guest investigators and how coordinated observations with CTA will have a significant impact on the exciting new era of multi-wavelength and multi-messenger astrophysics.Registration for the First CTA symposium is now open.

Participants can register online at http://www.cta-symposium.com/registration.
The deadline to submit abstracts has been extended to March 10, 2019. The scientific organising committee (SOC) will consider the submission for inclusion in the preliminary programme and will notify the authors whether their contribution has been selected for an oral/poster presentation by March 29, 2019.

16th Baksan School on Astroparticle Physics

BaksanThe aim of the Baksan School on Astroparticle Physics is to cover topics in both experimental and theoretical astroparticle physics. The program of the school will include three main lecture courses followed by tutorials, practical and discussion sessions, together with several separate lectures, special session for participants presentations and excursion to underground laboratories of the Baksan Neutrino Observatory.

SENSE will participate with a tutorial on SiPMs and a corresponding lecture about their application in astroparticle physics.

The School is addressed at advanced masters students, graduate students and postdocs working in astroparticle physics. The School will be held at a picturesque location in Baksan valley.

International Cosmic Day

ICD2018 general poster smallerThe 7th International Cosmic Day will be on 29th of November 2018.

The International Cosmic Day brings together students, teachers and scientists to talk and learn about Cosmic Rays. During the International Cosmic Day (ICD) students will find answers to questions like: What are cosmic particles? Where do they come from? How can they be measured? Furthermore, own measurements can be performed or provided data can be analyzed and used to participate in the day. Groups all over the world will come together for a video chat to compare and discuss their results. This gives students the opportuniy to work like a real scientist in an international collaboration.

Are you interested? Then participate.

At KIT we will perform some measurements with the show case experiment developed within the SENSE project.

Vienna Conference on Instrumentation

VCI

The Vienna Conference on Instrumentation (VCI) will take place from Monday to Friday, February 18-22, 2019 and present the newest developments in detectors for particle, astro-particle and nuclear physics and their applications in biology, medicine, neutron scattering and synchrotron radiation. The deadline for abstract submission is already closed.

The conference proceedings will appear as special volume in the journal Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research Section A.
