This meeting is the thirteenth in a series initiated in 1980 and will be held in Castiglione della Pescaia and La Biodola, Italy, devoted to advanced detectors for high energy and astroparticle physics experiments. It will take place from 24-30 May 2015.

The meeting is sponsored by the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare [INFN], the Società Italiana di Fisica [SIF], the European Physical Society [EPS], the University of Pisa and the University of Siena.

The aim of the meeting is to review the progress in detector technology with emphasis on applications in future experiments. Topics for 2015 are the following:

  • New ideas on detection techniques
  • Trends in tracking, calorimetry and particle identification
  • Ground, sea and space based detector systems
  • Detectors for astroparticle physics and cosmic radiation
  • Detectors for fundamental physics and gravitational waves
  • Neutrino detectors
  • Synchrotron radiation, X-ray and photon detectors
  • Front-end electronics and trigger systems
  • DAQ and data management
  • Techniques for simulations and data analysis
  • HEP techniques in medicine, biology and related fields
  • Applications to cultural heritage, environment monitoring and homeland security
  • Applied superconductivity in HEP
  • Acceleration techniques and detectors for beam monitoring
  • Technology transfer and industrial applications

The meeting will be organized as a series of plenary half-day sessions, each addressing one or more specific topics of interest.

Editorial – Reflections on a fantastic year for EPS

Sometimes we are so busy working on tasks at hand that we forget to look backwards to see how much we have achieved. In a sense, this is exactly the way it should be, because looking forward keeps us focused on moving in new directions! But in this last editorial of 2014, it's perhaps the right time to go through exactly what EPS has achieved concretely over the last 12 months.
Council in 2014 was held in April at the beautiful location of the ICTP in Trieste. Council saw the election of Christophe Rossel who will take over as EPS President from April 2015. Christophe has worked closely with David and I since ...
