The Excellence in Detector and Instrumentation Technologies (EDIT) symposium was created to ensure researchers entering the field of high energy physics today get the hands-on experience with detector technology they need to successfully further their careers.
EDIT is a symposium devoted to young researchers, in their graduate studies or in their first year as a post doc, seeking to acquire a deeper knowledge of the major aspects of detectors and instrumentation technologies.
This goal is achieved by providing a diversified program that integrates topical academic courses with hands-on laboratory experience.
The practice-oriented approach of the symposium will be particularly profitable for physicists with limited hardware experience, as they can explore the performance and limitations of the technologies which are used in state-of-the-art experiments.
