XV Workshop on Resistive Plate Chambers and Related Detectors
10 - 14 February 2020,
University of Rome Tor Vergata, Rome, Italy
Resistive Plate Chambers, RPCs, are gaseous ionization detectors with planar
resistive electrodes, devised by R. Cardarelli and R. Santonico about 40 years
ago. Since then, they have been widely used in High Energy as well as in
Nuclear and Astro-particle Physics, as muon-trigger and timing detectors. The
Resistive Plate Chamber workshop is a biennial appointment dedicated to the
state-of-the-art and to future developments of this detection technique. The
XV edition has been held in Rome from February 10th to 14th, 2020 at the
University of Tor Vergata, where one of the first editions had been hosted.
The contributions to the workshop outlined the main interests of the
community, from the status of present large systems to future applications, in
terms of aging, gas-mixture studies, constructive techniques as well as
Front-End and DAQ electronics. Simulations of elementary processes inside the
gas, machine-learning-based approaches to data analysis and applications
outside of particle and astro-particle physics have also been presented.
