The focus is on the most advanced technologies in the fields of semiconductors, very deep submicron and 3D technologies, nanotechnology, advanced packaging & interconnect, Si Photonics, real-time signal processing, filtering and massive parallel computing. The school will provide lectures and Lab work in a variety of cross-disciplinary example applications drawn from the exploration of distant Universe, through Medical imaging of the human body, to exploration of the elementary particle world. Lectures on science overviews and on related technical developments will be given by experts from Academia and Industry, alongside with hands-on Lab sessions with demonstrators and subject specific master-classes on science and technology.

The previous two editions took place in Oxford and Paris

This year the school will be hosted in the Campus of The Hamburg University, Campus in the City of Hamburg in Germany.


This year the School will address new topics in Astrophysics, HEP and Medical Physics as compared to those covered at the two previous schools.

In Astrophysics the school will cover the Gravitational waves (i.e. advanced VIRGO,  LIGO terrestrial experiments and the LISA project) and the experiments based on the use of Noble gas for the direct searches for dark matter and Long Baseline Neutrino. The on-detector signal processing for these various cases and their impressive new challenges will be explained in these lectures

In HEP the programme will cover the future colliders projects (ILC, CLIC and FCC) besides the LHC experiments. In particular the lectures will show how the different types of machine running conditions will impact on the development of the signal processing overall chain in these various cases.

in Medical Physics a complete new PET system will be presented allowing the students understanding the benefits for the patient of intelligent signal processing on the instrument for a complete, compact and efficient treatment of the information.

A series of colloquia will cover the scientific objectives of these fundamental research fields. One of them, by B. Foster, will review the Future Accelerators Projects in Particle Physics, another one will present the XFEL Facility and its Industrial and Scientific outcomes, and more to come.

The new series of Labs will allow completing the lectures by specific examples.
