Radiation detectors: Applications in nuclear and particle physics, and medical imaging

The 19th annual TRIUMF Summer Institute (TSI) will be held July 9-20, 2007. This year's TSI is designed to give graduate students and young researchers an improved understanding of particle detectors. The Institute will provide courses on the relevant theoretical background, as well as present detector developments in nuclear physics, high energy physics and medical imaging.

Lectures will take place in the mornings, while afternoons are reserved for problems sessions in small groups and tours of detector facilities at TRIUMF and at the University of British Columbia. An afternoon will be devoted to presenting the GEANT simulation tool.
Participants will be given the opportunity to present their research in a poster session. In some cases university credit is possible

Participation is normally limited to 40 students.
