ICFA: Instrumentation, Innovation and Development Panel

The ICFA Instrumentation Innovation and Development Panel will stimulate world inclusive involvement in the innovation and development of new instrumentation for experiments at future accelerators. The mission of the Panel is to promote research on and development of instrumentation for use in future particle physics experiments which engages physicists from all parts of the world. Panel activities include:
  • Organization of the biennial ICFA Schools presented to advanced graduate students and postdoctoral scientists, approximately half of whom come from less industrialized part of the world than Europe, North America, or Japan.
  • Development and maintenance of Web-based material on instrumentation available to anyone working in the field. Included are tutorials on the various techniques as well as information on the operating characteristics of the main detector components now in use.
