Summary

The main focus of this school was to teach about experimental techniques for particle, nuclear, cosmic ray, and medical physics by means of laboratory sessions, lecture courses, and review talks. It was aimed primarily at graduate students with some participation of young post-doctoral students. This volume includes lecture courses on: Particle identification, tracking detectors, front-end electronics and signal processing, triggering and data acquisition general considerations, confidence intervals, as well as calorimetry.
