SCINT Summer School - Scintillating Materials and their Applications

Europe/Zurich
Hotel les Aiglons

Hotel les Aiglons

Chamonix, France
Description

The SCINT School aims at bringing to the attendees an educational oriented overview of the various topics of the scintillating materials field which will be covered by the SCINT2017 conference. From medical imaging to homeland security applications, from the solid-state physics and chemistry concepts in connection to the scintillation mechanisms to the material synthesis, from modelling to measurements, the ASCIMAT school targets the master and PhD students, but is also open to Post-docs and senior scientists.

During 3 full days, just before the SCINT2017 conference, the SCINT School will gather experienced lecturers and attendees for talks, open discussions and practicals.

The attendees will also have the opportunity to present their current works as flash oral presentations and posters.
