Location: INFN Sezione di Pisa, and Scuola Superiore Sant Anna, PISA, Italy

The National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN), Sezione di Pisa:

The Scuola Superiore Sant Anna in Pisa, TeCIP Institute

The two INFIERI partners in Pisa, INFN-PISA and Scuola Superiore Sant Anna have decided to organize jointly the Sixth INFIERI workshop in Pisa.
Arrangements are made for the first two days (27 and 28) be organized by INFN, included a visit to the VIRGO/EGO site in Cascina, where we will also host the second Joint SB and EC Boards meeting. The first Joint SB and EC Boards Meeting will be held on the first day at INFN-Pisa.
The third day of the workshop will take place at the TeCIP Institute, where Passive Optical Networks and Silicon Photonics activities will be presented; demos about INFIERI applications will also be shown in the Institute Laboratories;

This will give a very complete overview of all activities to the students. In order to cover in the best way the three days, the organizers suggest to allow the duration of the workshop to the three full days and all INFIERI partners are strongly encouraged to book their trip accordingly.

  Besides the Young Researchers will have an additional meeting afternoon starting on Monday October 26, at 3pm at INFN-Pisa.

Two leading scientists (Caterina Biscari, director of the ALBA laboratory in Barcelona, and Guido Tonelli, University of Pisa, former CMS spokesperson) will illustrate to the general public (notably students from local high schools) the social and technological implications of cutting-edge research at accelerators. A Q&A session is foreseen, with hopefully many spontaneous/naive questions from the younger component of the audience.
