Venue: Riva del Garda

Continuing in its tradition, the aim of the school is to illustrate principles, methodologies and most recent applications of neutron detection technologies. In particular, the school will tackle various arguments that span from neutron interaction principles, materials for neutrons detectors, neutron sources, Monte Carlo simulation codes, up to applications with neutrons.  
The school is addressed to PhD students, Post-Docs and young researchers with backgrounds in Engineering and Physics.

Kindly notice: on Thursday 30 June, at 18.00 a Welcolme cocktail will be offered to participants. In the meantime it will be possible to check in for the School.
