EVENTS 2016
----------------------------

19th LSC Scientific Committee Meeting (2-3 December 2016)

The Scientific Advisory Committee is composed of scientist of international reputation. It gives advice on experimental proposals and monitors the progress of the approved experiments. In this last meeting the new three members, whom substitute those who ended up their contribution in May, were presented. They are: Mark Chen - Queen's University, Ontario (Canada), Eligio Lisi - INFN, Bari (Italy) y Paola Tropea - CERN, Geneva (Switzerland).

NEXT Collaboration Meeting (30th of November to 1st of December 2016)

Around 35 researchers from the NEXT collaboration met at the LSC facilities in Canfranc to carry out one of the annual meetings of this collaboration. The first results from the NEXT-NEW detector were presented at this meeting.

APPEC Chair visits LSC (15 November 2016)

On November 15, we were honored to receive the visit Frank Linde, chair of APPEC (Astroparticle Physics European Consortium) http://www.appec.org, and Auke Colijn, from Nikhef (National Institute for Subatomic Physics) https://www.nikhef.nl.

Low background measurements and screening at LSC and LNGS (26-27 October 2016)

Aldo Ianni, LSC Director, proposed a workshop on Low background measurements and analysis at LSC and LNGS (Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso). On the first day, three experts on radiopurity services, radioactive sources and low background measurements from both the LNGS and the LABAC (group from Zaragoza University associated to the LSC), gave talks. On Thursday 27, the three LNGS experts participated in a meeting with the LSC’s specialized staff to advice on the handling of radioactive sources and discuss over a possible collaboration to develop a very low background Ge radioactive detector.

CSFCA & CSIC, Astrophysics & Cosmology with LSS (3-4 October 2016)

This meeting held at the LSC premises on the 3rd and 4th of October, intended to establish a synergy between two research centers: The CEFCA (Centro de Estudios de Física del Cosmos de Aragón) from Teruel and the CSIC (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas) from Valencia. There is a connections between the research carried out at LSC and at the CEFCA, which relate to the understanding of the dark matter nature with complementary methods.

GLIMOS, Safety Talks (1st September 2016)

Whilst holding the GLIMOS (Group Leader in Matter of Safety) annual meeting for the LSC experiments, the Director invited two experts from the LNGS (Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso) to give a talk in security measures and visit our facilities.

Workshop on underground muon measurements (9-11 August 2016)

Students and researchers belonging to the MIPT (Moscow Institute for Physics and Technology) travelled to the LSC to join this workshop and participate on discussions over the data analysis and simulation tactics of muon monitoring. Students from other national institutions also attended this workshop.

GTFE 2016 Tunnel du Somport Reencounter (9-10 June 2016)

On the 9th and 10th of June the Reencounter of the GTFE (Groupe de travail francophone des exploitants de tunnels routiers) was held in our premises. Directors of the exploitation of different international tunnels attended this meeting. A visit to the underground facilities was part of the program.

18th LSC Scientific Committee Meeting (16-17 May 2016)

The Scientific Advisory Committee is composed of scientist of international reputation. It gives advice on experimental proposals and monitors the progress of the approved experiments. This is the last meeting for two of its members: Ariella Cattai and Concha Gonzalez.

2nd Workshop on Nuclear Astrophysics at LSC – CUNA – (29 February – 1 March 2016)

The 2nd International workshop on Nuclear Astrophysics at the Canfranc Underground Laboratory was held at the laboratory headquarters in Canfranc Estación, from 29 February to 1 March, 2016. The workshop followed the first workshop held in 2012 at the same location, and the previous exploratory meeting that took place in Barcelona in 2009. The aim was to discuss the feasibility, the Physics program and the implementation of the Canfranc Underground Nuclear Astrophysics project at the LSC, in the context of existing and planned facilities worldwide.

Safety Review Meeting for the NEXT-NEW Gas System (08-10 February 2016)

Due to the importance of the gas system and the need to ensure its security for the Laboratory, it was considered necessary to carry out a review by the LSC. A panel of experts from different institutions held a meeting to review the gas system of the NEXT-NEW experiment from the 8th to the 10th of February at the LSC premises. In such a meeting the NEXT collaboration carried out a presentation before the Panel which, after reviewing on site the installed system, will draft a report over it.

NEXT Collaboration Meeting (12-13 January 2016)

On the 12th and 13th of January, around 20 researchers from the NEXT collaboration met at the LSC facilities in Canfranc to carry out one of the annual meetings of this collaboration in order to evaluate the progress and current status of the experiment as well as define the steps to go forward.
