RICH2013 will focus on the "state of the art" and the future developments in Cherenkov light imaging techniques for applications in High Energy Physics, Nuclear Physics and Astroparticle Physics. New results from Ring Imaging Cherenkov detectors at the present and future experiments
are anticipated. Exotic applications of Cherenkov radiation and alternative particle identification methods will also be discussed.
The conference is organized with plenary sessions of invited and contributed talks, and poster presentations.
The list of topics includes (conveners for each topics also shown) :
Cherenkov light imaging in particle and nuclear physics experiments
[Toru Iijima (Nagoya), Blair Ratcliff (SLAC)]
Cherenkov detectors in astroparticle physics
