About the book

The discovery of the Higgs Boson at the LHC Experiment has opened a new scenario in particle physics research. Besides the upgrade of LHC to higher luminosity and center of mass energy, a large number of novel international high energy physics facilities is currently in consideration, including, among others, the International Linear Collider (ILC), the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC), the Circular Electron Positron Collider (CEPC), the Super Proton Proton Collider (SPPC), and the Future Circular Collider (FCC). The first aim of this book is to provide an overview of the physics case of such novel facilities, with particular focus on the discovery potential beyond the Physics beyond the Standard Model. The second aim of the book is to outline novel detection technologies under development in order to fulfill the demanding experimental conditions of future facilities, with particular focus on sensors, calorimetry, and tracking detectors. Cross-disciplinary applications of novel theoretical findings and technologies play an important role in modern research. Therefore, the book also aims to show how novel theories and technologies developed for future facilities can be applied to develop the new generation of nuclear medical equipment.

Publishing process

Deadline Extended: Open for Submissions

Potential authors submit chapter proposals ready for review by the academic editor and our publishing review team.

Approved chapters written in full and submitted

Deadline for full chapters: November 29th 2019

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: February 17th 2020

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Book compiled, published and promoted

Expected publication date: April 17th 2020

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

About the editor

Nicola DAscenzo

Huazhong University of Science and Technology

Nicola D\'Ascenzo received his BSc degree in physics and the MS degree in applied physics from the University of Pisa, Italy in 2003 and 2005, respectively, and the PhD degree in natural sciences from the Physics Department, University of Hamburg, Germany. He is currently a Full Professor at School of Life Science, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China. He is currently member of the CDF experiment at Fermilab, and has been working in the SUSY discovery reach and in detector design in novel planned electron positron accelerators. As for the technological aspects, his research focuses on physics and optoelectronic technologies for the development of multivoltage threshold enabled photodetectors, and to build a new generation of radiation imaging systems for applications in both high-energy physics and nuclear medicine, with a highly cross-disciplinary approach. His research activities range from physical modeling of high energy and medical physics phenomena and related computational physics aspects in high performance computing, to technological aspects of the sensor development and the design of full imaging systems.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
