The 4th International Workshop on Superconducting Sensors and Detectors (IWSSD 2018) will be held in Sydney, Australia, from 24th to 27th July 2018, and will be hosted by the Australian Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). Previous IWSSD workshops were held in Daejeon (Korea, 2012), Shanghai (China, 2014) and Tsukuba (Japan, 2016).
Superconducting sensors and detectors are fast growing fields in Superconductivity. They play an important role in a wide range of research and development areas, for example, quantum information, analytical instrumentation, synchrotron radiation, mineral exploration, security, astronomy and, wireless communications, etc. The IWSSD aims to bring together leading experts from all related areas to exchange the latest research results and information on superconducting sensors, detectors and their applications. The workshop will cover the following topics:
low-Tc devices, high-Tc devices, device physics, novel sensors and detectors, readout and signal processing, cryogenics and implementation, materials and fabrication, scientific instrumentation, mineral exploration, quantum information and other novel applications such as medical imaging, microwave, terahertz and wireless communication. The IEC-IEEE Superconducting Electronics Standardization Committee will also meet at IWSSD 2018.
The workshop will be held in Sydney, renowned for its beautiful harbour and for its iconic architecture the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, where you can climb to the top of the bridge, attend an opera at the Opera house, or stroll along beautiful Manly or Bondi beaches.
The Conference venue is the CSIRO West Lindfield Laboratories which is 15 km for the city centre.
