Innovative Simulation Tools, Shielding and Instrumentation 2019 (ISTSI2019)

Holiday Inn St. Petersburg, Russia, June 29th 2019

- a SINE2020 WP8 "e-tools" satellite event of ECNS2019.

The workshop is held as a dissemination activity of the WP8 workpackage in the EU SINE2020 Project and is open to all ECNS2019 participants (registration needed, see below).

The exact programme is still being drafted, here is the current list of speakers and topics:
