The workshop is organized by IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society and *** and will be held at UCAD University in Dakar March 16th - 18th. The intention is to give practical experience with developing and controlling mid-range real time experiments. Hands-on experience is very important. The school provides lectures and laboratory exercises, given by experts in radiation measurements with state-of-the-art experience. The lectures introduce firmware, software and web based programming (for remote control), and show how this can be used in different areas of science.

The goal of the school is

  • To train students in the area of radiation detectors and its applications.
  • To enhance the development of real-time system in Western Africa
  • To promote the participation of young scientists in radiation measurements and related fields
