July 10 Update:

New information for authors has been posted in the Proceedings page.Note that the deadline for submissions is July 15.

May 29 Update:

The Local Organizing Committee for LTD-15 has recently learned of several unexpected constraints on the Caltech campus facilities that would negatively impact the workshop. As a result, the organizing committee has decided that it is necessary to relocate the venue.

All LTD-15 sessions will be held at the Pasadena Convention Center instead of the Caltech campus. 

We apologize for short notice; however, we are confident that the benefits offered by the new venue outweigh the inconvenience associated with a last minute change.  In addition to providing larger spaces for the oral sessions and the posters, and a central location for both vendor tables and food and beverage service, the Convention Center is conveniently located within walking distance of all three recommended hotels (see map) as well as the shops and restaurants of historic Old Town Pasadena.  See this more detailed map showing the location of the Conference Building at the Convention Center; all sessions will be held on the lower level.

The International Workshop on Low Temperature Detectors (LTD) is held every two years and provides an international forum for discussing the latest research, development efforts and applications of cryogenic detectors for radiation and particles. The rapid technical developments of the last years and their outstanding features make these detectors very attractive in a variety of fields ranging from fundamental research to applied sciences.
