Presentations in working meetings and conferences are the culmination of weeks or months of work and are one of our most important communication methods to our peers. Yet the 10-15 minutes they take are often seen as tedious and boring, both by the audience and even the presenter! We will identify, as a group, some simple but effective methods of improving presentations and posters with...

EUTelescope is a Generic Pixel Telescope Data Analysis Framework. It has started developing mainly using EUDET-type beam telescopes, but user-driven developments have extended the framework, as for example the General Broken Line (GBL) track finding. This tutorial provides a short overview on EUTelescope and is focusing on going through the analysis flow to get a scattering image....

Proteus is a software to reconstruct and analyze data from beam telescopes. In this tutorial we will follow an analysis from raw hit data to reconstructed tracks and basic efficiency measurements using an example dataset. The software requires ROOT and a C++11 compatible compiler. Participants are encouraged to install it on their local computer or on CERN lxplus machines by following the...

Comparison between different algorithms to compute the arrival time using sampled signals. Starting from a simple threshold crossing, the time precision can be improved implementing a smarter discriminator (hysteresis, peak selection, interpolation, ... ) and time walk corrections (Constant Fraction, ... ) Real data acquired in a beam test will be used. Prerequisites: laptop, C++ knowledge, root
Dr Simon Spannagel (CERN)
Scope ----- This tutorial will give an introduction to the Allpix Squared simulation framework. We will walk through the examples provided with the framework and set up our own telescope-plus-DUT simulation with different configuration options. In addition, the tutorial will serve as AMA (ask-me-anything) for the framework. Preparation ----------- Please install the latest...

The Maximum Integrated Data Acquisition System (MIDAS) has been used in many test beam experiments over the last years. It has been developed in a collaboration between PSI, Switzerland and TRIUMF, Canada, and is constantly updated and extended after its initial revision more than 20 years ago. This tutorial gives a basic overview of the MIDAS components and concepts and their application to...
