Micro-Pattern Gas Detectors (RD51) Workshop

Europe/Zurich
NIKHEF, Amsterdam

NIKHEF, Amsterdam

Description
Dear Colleague, It is our pleasure to announce on behalf of Harry van der Graaf and Jan Timmermans, that NIKHEF will host the Micro-Pattern Gas Detectors (MPGD) Workshop, including the first RD51 Collaboration Meeting, on 16th-18th of April 2008. RD51 has been initiated at CERN in 2007 to develop micro-pattern gas detectors. It will be 100 years since Geiger invented the first wire chamber, and the meeting will reflect on the history of gaseous detector technology, while looking forward to new frontiers with MPGD, new trackers, state-of-the-art technologies, and the benefits to be gained from Moore's Law. The meeting will have sessions on technology, micro-electronics, ageing, simulations, and common development (testbeams, standardisation, nomenclature, etc.). It will concentrate on the future and avoid status talks about current detectors. A further aim of the workshop is to set up the organization of the MPGD Collaboration (RD51). For more information please contact: Harry van der Graaf (vdgraaf@nikhef.nl) or Leszek Ropelewski (leszek.ropelewski@cern.ch).
