Joint Instrumentation Seminar

A Joint Instrumentation Seminar of the Particle Physics and Photon Science communities
at DESY, Hamburg University and XFEL

organized by Katja Krueger (DESY), Georg Steinbrueck (Uni-HH), Ulrich Trunk (DESY).
An initiative of Heinz Graafsma (DESY & XFEL), Robert Klanner (Uni-HH), and Joachim Mnich (DESY)

The aim of the series is to forge closer connections between the photon science and particle physics fields, and to get updated on new developments in specific aspects of instrumentation development.

The seminars are held bi-weekly on Friday afternoons, starting at 14:00, in SR 4 Building 1b.
The seminars are made available for remote viewing via evo/..../eZuce (Universe - Joint Instrumentation Seminar). The meeting ID (as of 22.06.2018) is "MsMiMI2i2vDuDM9i9vDt9s".
