Workshop on Detectors for FAIR

Puri, India

Puri, India


This workshop is dedicated to discussions on development and fabrication of detectors to be used in the experiments at Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) at Darmstadt, Germany. Indian scientists involved in these experiments as well as a few experts in these areas will participate to take a stock of the preparedness and future goals keeping in mind the requirements. Participation in this workshop is by invitation only.


The workshop is organised by "Indo-FAIR Coordination Centre, Bose Institute, Kolkata".
