The European Society for Applied Superconductivity [ESAS] Summer School on “New Trends with Superconducting Detectors” will be held in Genoa from 9-13 September 2013. The school has been organised in co-operation with the Institute SPIN of the Italian National Council of Research [CNR], the University of Genoa, the University of Naples Federico II and the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics, under the patronage of the EPS.

The school aims to provide an up to date scientific and technological review of superconductivity applied to the wide fields of the electronics, devices and detectors. The basic knowledge of superconducting phenomenology that is functional to both the present technical and scientific developments will be given highly educational lectures. These basics arguments are enriched with topical seminars on specialised aspects that are of great interest for fundamental and applied science: computing, quantum optics and communication, energy dispersive spectroscopy, particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology, biology and metrology.

The school is open to young scientists interested in exploiting the “low power” superconductivity field for application to high precision measurements and high performance devices. One of the purposes of this school is to bring together the participants with authoritative scientists that are active in the field in short but intense week.

The school is mainly targeted at post graduate students as well as young industry professionals who wish to broaden their skills or insight into the potentialities of this emerging technology.

More information is available on the Summer School website.

Pathway conference

The Pathway conference will be held from 23 to 26 October 2013 in Bad Hofgastein, Austria.

The Pathway conference is the opportunity for science teachers from all over Europe to meet together with their peers and education experts. Workshops and plenary lectures will be organised under the theme of the inquiry-based science education [IBSE]. Workshops for teachers will be held in English as well as in German.

The conference is the closing event of the Pathway project. During 3 years, materials and resources have been...
