Workshop on Radiopure Scintillators for EURECA

RPScint 2008, 9th - 10th September 2008

Institute for Nuclear Research, Kyiv, Ukraine

First Announcement

Dear Colleagues,

We propose to organize a workshop in Kyiv (Ukraine) on 9th and 10th September 2008 to discuss R&D of radiopure scintillators for low-count rate experiments, and in particular for the EURECA cryogenic dark matter experiment. The idea is to bring together physicists, chemists, crystal scintillators experts and producers to discuss the following:


Attendance will be by invitation only.

The workshop will be held at the Institute for Nuclear Research in Kyiv (KINR). Accommodation will be provided in a hotel in the city center of Kyiv (for example in the Khreschatik Hotel, the hotel Ukraina, Kozatsky hotel, etc). Less expensive accommodation can be organized on request in the Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. Transportation will be organized from the Boryspil (Kyiv) airport to the hotel and back, and also from the hotel to the KINR and back. The workshop dinner is planned for Tuesday evening (9th September). We plan to organize a tour through Kyiv during Thursday morning (11th September), provided sufficient interest. The workshop fee (60 euro, to be paid cash on arrival) includes transportation from/to airport and from/to the workshop site, coffee breaks, lunch for two days (9th and 10th September), and the workshop dinner. A visa to enter the Ukraine is not required for citizens of Europe, USA, Japan and Canada.

If you are interested in participating, please send a short email to to this effect. An early answer is appreciated as this allows more precise planning. Those wishing to receive further information may also contact the RPSCINT 2008 Secretariat (
