WORKSHOP ON TIMING DETECTORS:

ELECTRONICS, MEDICAL AND PARTICLE PHYSICS APPLICATIONS, NOVEMBER 29, 30, DECEMBER 1 2010



Place and Purpose

The workshop on timing detectors, electronics and medical and particle physics applications will take place in Cracow, Academy of Arts and Sciences, on November 29, 30 and December 1 2010.
Ultra Fast timing at the picosecond level is becoming achievable with the new technological development around Multichanel Plates Photodetectors devices. However, there are many challenging issues at many levels. The aim of this european workshop is to review the status of the various research and development aspects of these developments and discuss the possible applications in a multidisciplinary environment from fundamental Physics (LHC and Super LHC, B factories, neutrino experiments, ILC and beyond) to medical applications.
This workshop follows the ones organised in Saclay (March 2007), Chicago (March 2008), Clermont Ferrand (2009).

Topics
