19th International Workshop on Low Temperature Detectors (LTD19)

The 19th International Workshop on Low Temperature Detectors (LTD19) is an opportunity for researchers from around the world to exchange information about the science of cryogenic sensors, instruments based on these sensors, and applications of these instruments.  The LTD workshop has been held every two years since 1986.  In 2021, LTD19 will be held virtually due to the covid19 pandemic.  The workshop will consist of oral and poster presentations, vendor exhibits, and a job fair. 

LTD19 will consist of 8 half-day sessions spread over 2 weeks. During the first week (July 19-23), the sessions will be held in the U.S. morning to accommodate participants joining from European time zones. During the second week (July 26-29), the sessions will be held late in the U.S. day to accommodate participants joining from Asian time zones. A detailed schedule will be released later.
