San Miniato 1996

The 6th Topical Seminar on "Experimental Apparatus for Particle Physics and Astrophysics" will take place in San Miniato al Todesco, Italy, from may 20 to may 24 1996.



The Seminar is the sixth in a series devoted to experimental apparatus for high-energy particle physics and astrophysics. The previous ones were held in 1984, 1986, 1988, 1990 and 1993. The 1996 Seminar will focus on advanced technologies in particle physics at collider experiments and in cosmic ray astrophysics experiments, with emphasis on their correlations. Participation of industry representatives will give a perspective for future developments. The format of the Seminar will be based on reviews talks summarizing the progress of complex R&D projects and of major facilities. Shorter talks will cover contributions on specific items. The presentation of posters is also foreseen.


- Tracking detectors
- Calorimeters
- Cosmic ray experiments in space, on surface and underground
- Neutrino experiments
- Gravitational wave experiments
- Radiation-hard detectors and electronics


Attendance will be by invitation only and will be limited to 
approximately one hundred physicists. Participants are expected 
to attend the full Seminar. Interested physicists should write 
to the Organizing Committee.


The registration fee is 200SF.


Housing and full board on site cost 400SF per person in a double 
room (supplement for a single room is 100SF). The cost for an 
adult companion is 350SF.
