2nd bulletin CERN, May 6th, 2022

We are pleased to announce that the registration and the abstract submission to the RPC2022 conference are now open at the conference indico page: .

The deadline for abstract submission is July 1st, 2022.

We would like to invite participants to submit abstracts for oral presentations as well for posters that will be displayed during a dedicated session.

The deadline for registration is August 12th 2022.

Please follow the instructions on the indico web page on how to register and pay the fee. Few fellowships will be available for young scientists to cover allowance and the fee. Please submit a motivation letter in the registration indico page to support your request.

1st bulletin CERN, March 30th, 2022

The XVI RPC Workshop will be held at CERN in the main Auditorium from the September 26th to October 1st, 2022.

The workshop will continue a long tradition of scientific meetings, originated in Lecce in 1991 and continued with biannual appointments in Roma, Pavia, Napoli, Bari, Coimbra, Clermont-Ferrand, Seoul, Mumbai, Darmstadt, Frascati, Beijing, Ghent, Puerto Vallarta and Roma.

This edition aims to acknowledge the fundamental role of CERN in detector technologies for the worldwide community of particle physicists. The RPC detection techniques were largely employed in elementary particle and astro-particle experiments.

The workshop will focus on both the performance and possible upgrade scenarios of large RPC systems as well as applications outside the particle physics context. The most challenging questions in physics are now related to the search for dark matter, long lived particles, astro-particle physics, and physics at high energy colliders. This calls for new challenges in detector layout, front end electronics, materials, gas mixtures, aging and new ideas for improving the detector’s performance in the domain of rate capability and space-time resolution.

The workshop will have invited reviews and selected contributions, as well as a poster session. Further information can be found on the workshop website:
