Invitation from the Conference Chairman
I am pleased to invite you to the 16th International Conference on Calorimetry in High Energy Physics - CALOR 2014 - to be held during April 6-11, 2014 at the Science Campus of the Justus-Liebig University at Giessen in Germany.
We are proud to host the leading conference on calorimetry right in the heart of Germany after a series of locations touching several continents and cultures. Following the tradition, the conference will review and hopefully trigger new insights and ideas of high-energy calorimeter concepts and related applications in other fields such as astrophysics or medical tomography. The conference will bring together not only the experts on calorimeter design and construction but also cover the state of the art applications and shining lights on the recent progress in the fields of basic research supported by calorimetry. Calorimeter concepts have even a strong impact on daily life as represented by medical applications in therapy and diagnostics as well as homeland security.
The Physics Department at Giessen has a long lasting tradition in scintillator and calorimeter research as well as direct application in presently operating and future electromagnetic calorimeters. Future activities are even more promoted by the established new international research center FAIR - the facility for antiproton and ion research - at Darmstadt, less than 100km apart from Giessen.
We hope that we can bring together the whole community of experts in the different areas as well as a significant part of students and young researches, which might even be new in the field. As in the past, we are looking forward to excellent contributions and presentations, which will be published in a Conference Record.
