RET Collaboration Meeting 2022

Body

April 1-4, 2022

The Center for Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics (CCAPP) at The Ohio State University (OSU) is hosting a hybrid workshop in-person in Columbus, Ohio and virtual. 

This will be the inaugural collaboration meeting for the Radar Echo Telescope collaboration. This in-person meeting will be the first time that our international cohort will be together discussing the experiment, presenting works in progress, working on simulations, and testing hardware. Each day will consist of contributed talks in the morning from students, postdocs and  faculty, and discussion/workshop sessions in the afternoons. These sessions will span hardware, software/firmware, future plans, work in the CART facility, and open questions in the experiment and beyond.

Registration

There is no fee to attend.
Morning and afternoon coffee breaks will be provided by CCAPP.

Accommodations

A block of rooms is available at the Blackwell Inn, located on campus, across the street from the Physics Research Building. Blackwell Inn, 2110 Tuttle Park Place, Columbus Ohio 43210, 614-247-4000
