6th International Conference Frontiers in Diagnostic Technologies (ICFDT6)

The Conference ICFDT6 is co-organized by the Agenzia Nazionale per le Nuove Tecnologie, l’Energia e lo Sviluppo Economico Sostenibile  (ENEA), the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) and the International Center Piero Caldirola (ICPC), with financial support from the European Space Agency (ESA), the Milano-Bicocca University and CAEN (Electronics for Research Company).

The event is organized in 7 sessions (2 hours), a poster session and a satellite meeting dedicated to diagnostics for high energy physics experiments.

Special sessions are dedicated to diagnostics of:
1) the tokamak DTT (Divertor Test Tokamak) in construction at ENEA Frascati;
2) cold and industrial plasmas;
3) medical systems;
4)  tokamak JT60SA which is coming into operation this year.

The ICFDT6 Conference is organized in a hybrid format: the possibility of participation both in person and remotely is foreseen.

  • Measurement of temperature and density
  • Energy spectrum of particles
  • Spectroscopy in various ranges of wavelengths
  • Imaging in various ranges of wavelengths
  • Artificial Intelligence and Data Science
CAEN Prize for Experimental Physics

During the ICDT6 the CAEN Prize for Experimental Physics will be awarded for scientific merits on the activity of experimental physics.

The award is reserved for the three best PhD theses in Experimental Physics discussed after May 31, 2018 The award is exempt from the obligation to use CAEN forms. Candidates can use any type of electronic equipment.

The important thing is that the works are carried out in line with the denomination assigned to the prize and in which the instrumentation relating to experimental physics is used.

Important notice:
The Scientific Committee finally considered organizing:
– for the participants in person: the poster session in the traditional way, that is with a paper poster (instead of the short talk) due to the confirmed possibility of using the spaces for poster sessions (which was not possible with the previous limitations related to the covid pandemic) and the numerous requests we have received;
– for the participants in remote: short talks (8+2 min) will be organized in place of posters.
The dimensions required for the poster are: format A0 (84.1 x 118.9 cm2)


The ICFDT6 Proceedings will be published in Journal of Instrumentation (JINST), a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed and online-only journal created by the International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA) and IOP Publishing.

Contributors are invited to prepare their manuscript following the rules reported at the following link:

Please remember that depending on the contribution a maximum number of pages is allowed:
– tutorial: 10 pages
– oral: 6 pages
– short presentation in replacement of poster: 4 pages
Opening date for the submission: 19 October 2022
Deadline for submission: 15 December 2022

When your contribution is ready for submission, please follow the instructions below:
connect to http://jinst.sissa.it and register; in the “Submit” section of the page select the link “submit a proceedings contribution”; select the ICFDT6 conference from the list; follow the step-by-step procedure for submission given in the author’s page.
