Calor 2006 - Chicago, IL, USA

The XII International Conference on Calorimetry in High Energy Physics,  was held in Chicago, IL, USA, from June 5th through June 9th, 2006. This conference brought together world experts on calorimetry in high energy physics and related fields for in-depth discussions of the latest developments and innovations. With the LHC detector commissioning well underway and the ramping-up of ILC detector design activities, this year’s conference was particularly lively.The meeting addressed all aspects of calorimetric particle detection and measurement trough the following topics: Astrophysics Calorimetry, Hadron Collider Calorimetry, Lepton Collider Calorimetry, Medical Calorimetry, Particle Flow Calorimetry, Silicon Calorimetry, Scintillator Calorimetry, Gaseous Calorimetry, Calorimeter Simulations, Crystal Calorimetry, Readout Electronics, Calibration Techniques.
