The art of calorimetry

Calorimeters are one of the most versatile component of a modern detector. From energy measurement to particle identification, from time resolution to ``tracking'', to fast trigger capability, they offer excellent performance on a large variety of applications. An art older than 100 years, which still offers secrets to unveil and challenges to overcome. Shall you be responsible to design the calorimeter for the high energy physics experiments of the future, or to calibrate and analyze the soon-to-come exciting new physics of the current generation of experiments, you will for sure profit from a 360 degrees overview on the art of calorimetry. In these lectures I will overview the calorimeters of the major modern high energy physics experiments, and I will touch briefly on calorimeters for astroparticle and neutrino physics. The state of the art technologies, the novelties in material, and readout electronics for caloriemters will be presented. I will discuss innovative analysis techniques and the currently best results obtained with modern calorimeters.
