Description

The third International Conference on Detector Stability and Aging Phenomena in Gaseous Detectors, held at CERN from November 6th to 10th, continued the initiative started in 1986 with the first workshop held at LBL (Berkeley) and in 2001 at DESY (Hamburg). The conference offered an occasion for sharing new results, new ideas, new facility requirements, ...
The first two editions were mainly focused on ageing phenomena and detector developments.  In addition to the usual topics, this edition reviewed the experience accumulated by all detector technologies operating for more than 15 years at the Large Hadron Collider experiments in the presence of a high radiation background.
In addition, nowadays, gaseous detectors for particle physics are entering a phase where operation at current experiments and future facilities will require the capacity to work at unprecedented particle rates, higher rate capability, integrated charge, and improved time resolution. Moreover, new materials are in many cases needed to achieve these new requirements. Finally, the need to replace environmentally unfriendly gases has set an additional challenge to the community. 
In the seminar, the key points coming out from the conference will be summarised.

Coffee will be served at 10:30.
