EDIT - Excellence in Detectors and Instrumentation Technologies - is a International School devoted to young researchers, in their graduate studies or in their first year as post docs, seeking to acquire a deeper knowledge on the major aspects of detectors and instrumentation technologies.
This goal is achieved by providing a diversified program that integrates topical academic courses with hands-on laboratories. The practice-oriented approach of the school will be particularly profitable for physicists with limited hardware experience, as they can explore the performance and limitations of the technologies which are used in state-of-the-art experiments. Participants’ understanding of technologies will be extended beyond their immediate circle to a broader view, favoring strong skills in understanding the operation of Detectors and fostering innovative ideas on R&D and data interpretation.
EDIT 2015 will be hosted by Frascati National Laboratory of INFN (Rome) Italy. EDIT 2015 is the 4th of the series. The EDIT school started at CERN in Geneve, Switzerland, in 2011 (EDIT 2011), the second took place in Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, IL, USA in 2012 (EDIT2012) and the third in the KEK Laboratory in Tsukuba, Japan in 2013 (EDIT2013).
