INFN - Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso
Europe/Rome timezone

This workshop examines topics in low radioactivity materials and techniques, which is probably the most fundamental part of rare event physics detectors, such as for solar neutrinos, dark matter, double-beta decay, and long half-life phenomena. This is the fourth workshop in the LRT series.

The workshop will be held at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS). All relevant information can be found on main workshop site:

The Gran Sasso National Laboratory is one of four INFN National laboratories. It is the largest underground laboratory in the world for experiments in particle physics, particle astrophysics and nuclear astrophysics. It is a worldwide facility for scientists from 22 different countries and working on about 15 experiments. It is located halfway between the cities of L'Aquila and Teramo, about 120 km from Rome.
