RICH2010 was held from May 3-7, 2010 at the Oustau Calendal
Conference Centre in Cassis,
France, following on from the six previous workshops held in
Bari, Italy (1993);
Uppsala, Sweden (1995);
Ein Gedi, Israel (1998);
Pylos, Greece (2002);
Playa del Carmen, Mexico (2004)
and Trieste, Italy (2007).
For later workshops in the series, refer to the
RICH 2013 website.
RICH2010 was focussed on the "state of the art"
future developments in Cherenkov light imaging techniques
High Energy Physics, Nuclear Physics and Astroparticle Physics.
First results from Ring Imaging Cherenkov detectors at the CERN
LHC experiments were eagerly anticipated. Exotic applications of
Cherenkov radiation and alternative particle identification methods had
also been discussed.
The conference was organised in plenary sessions of
invited and contributed talks, and poster presentations.
The list of topics includes:
Cherenkov light imaging in particle and nuclear physics experiments
Cherenkov detectors in astroparticle physics
Novel Cherenkov imaging techniques
Photon detection for Cherenkov counters
Technological aspects of Cherenkov detectors
Pattern recognition and data analysis
Research & Development for future experiments
RICH 2010 has been organised and sponsored by the Centre de Physique des
Particules de Marseille and the IN2P3 division of the CNRS,
with support from local political and international scientific bodies.
