SENSE Detector School

Flyer School Druck.pdfWe are happy to announce the SENSE Detector School at the Ringberg Castle in Kreuth am Tegernsee in Bavaria, Germany, from 19 - 22 June 2019. The 2.5 days mini-school for PhD and master students aims to inform about the forefront developments on low light-level detectors.
The speciality of the school is the small group of students with a continuous possibility to discuss with the teachers

The participation of 25 students is sponsored by SENSE. You can apply for the school until 3 May 2019 with a letter of motivation. The nomination of participants will be announced on 10 May 2019. We aim to achieve a balanced mix of working topics as well as gender and nationalities.If required, childcare can also be organised.

As soon as the timetable has been finalised, a decision will be made on a possible contribution from the students.

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.

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

Nuclear physics in stellar explosions Workshop '18

ATOMKI.jpgWe are invited to present the SENSE project at the Nuclear physics in stellar explosions Workshop '18 which is a continuation of the effort of the ATOMKI astrophysics group to bring together the experts from different fields with relevance to nuclear astrophysics.

About 50% of the chemical elements heavier than iron are synthesized in stellar explosions (in the r-process, rp-process and γ-process). The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers working in the field of explosive nucleosynthesis.

The workshop covers a wide range of topics: Evidences of explosive nucleosynthesis,Nuclear Theory in Astrophysics, Modeling of the nucleosynthesis processes,Recent r-, rp-, and γ-process related experiments,New facilities, detectors and experimental approaches.

The meeting will be a three-day event from 12th-14th September at Institute for Nuclear Research (MTA Atomki) of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
The deadline of the registration and abstract submission is 30th July 2018. The program will be finalized by 15th August, 2018.

IEEE NSS/MIC 2018

IEEENSSMIC

The 2018 Nuclear Science Symposium (NSS) and Medical Imaging Conference (MIC) will be held at the International Convention Centre Sydney, in Sydney, Australia, from the 10th to 17th of November.

This conference is the premier gathering of experts in radiation detection instrumentation with its applications in nuclear science, medical imaging, and space. The synergy created by the joining of the NSS and MIC is significant as it is an ideal atmosphere for the exchange of knowledge, generation of new ideas, and application of radiation detectors among academics, engineers, medical physicists, and physicians. The 2018 international conference event marks the 65th meeting aimed at bringing additional research flavours by encouraging participation of new groups of people to create ideas leading to innovation in radiation detectors, signal processing, and imaging.
