We are glad to announce the second edition of the conference on “FAst Timing Applications for nuclear physics and medical imaging” to be held in Catania on October 2-5, 2023. The conference is aimed at gathering together scientists working either in fundamental physics or medical and cultural applications and imaging with a common background in the Fast Timing with discrete or/and Hybrid technologies.
The Workshop is organized by the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) Sezione di Catania (CT), Laboratori Nazionali del Sud (LNS), and the Dipartimento di Fisica e Astronomia “Ettore Majorana” di Catania di Catania.
General Information and scientific program
The conference will focus on the most recent developments of Fast Timing techniques for applications of radiation detectors in the fields of nuclear physics, medical applications - Imaging and fluorescence
The scientific program will have dedicated sessions to outline recent progress on both experimental and theoretical aspects of the following topics:
Scintillators and Photodetectors for fast timing
Readout electronics for ultrafast detectors
Solid state detector technology for fast timing
Processing of time stamped data
Precise event time tagging in high luminosity accelerators
Towards picoseconds Time of Flight (TOF) resolution
Time of flight positron emission tomography (TOF-PET) for Medical Imaging and Monitoring of Hadron therapy
fluorescence imaging/microscopy techniques, including time-resolved.
Participation to the workshop by students, postdocs, technical staff and engineers is strongly encouraged. Participants wishing to present a contribution may submit an abstract directly on this website in the registration subpage. Abstracts will be selected by the advisory committee. The deadline for submission is June 20th, 2023. Anyone wishing to attend the workshop is invited to register on the registration subpage.
The meeting will be held in the historical and picturesque siege of the Monastero dei Benedettini and Dipartimento di Fisica e Astronomia Università di Catania in the historical town of Catania. Details about transportation and accommodation will be provided later in this website and in the second circular.
More details are available in the section circulars of this website.
