Deadline for proceedings: July 31st

Double beta decay experiments are gradually approaching ~100 kg scale of enriched isotopes. There are several research groups devoted to the β-β- decay experiments using different detection techniques (GERDA, CUORE, SuperNEMO, COBRA, Majorana) in the stage of extension of the detector or close to finishing of technical design. Experiments of such scale make enormous demands on the progress and reliability of the nuclear matrix elements calculations. Also the research in the field of special modes of ββ,such as β+β+ or 2νECEC starts to be more and more interesting from experimental and theoretical points of view (e.g. COBRA, TGV,...). The further development of the theory of such processes is crucial for continuation of experimental activities in this field.

From the very begining, in the organization of this meeting, the following boundary conditions have been agreed upon, namely:


The meeting takes place at the Masarykova College (see the Locations section). The scientific programme and coffee breaks take place in one of the meeting rooms at the College.

Meeting fee

The conference fee for participants at 10th MEDEX'15 is 250 €. A special rate for PhD. students is 100 €.

The fee includes coffee breaks, lunches and dinners, banquet, a copy of proceedings, and local transportation (3+1 days touristic tickets). The fee has to be paid upon registration (the first day of the meeting) in cash, in Czech currency or Euros (exchange rates).


Deadline for the registration (participant and possible accompanying persons) is May 09th, 2015. The registration form includes also the information on the contribution (oral or poster). Other participants than the invited speakers should send a one-page abstract of his/her contribution along with the registration form. This will help the organizers to finalize the scientific program.

Boarding and lodging

Participants can find an accommodation on their own. Standard accomodation for the participants is assumed in the Masarykova College (see changes in the Locations section), owned by the Czech Technical University in Prague. There are 30 double rooms pre-booked for the following prices (these prices are valid only when booked via organizers):

    Single       25 €/night incl. breakfast 
    Double (single use)       27 €/night incl. breakfast
    Double       45 €/night incl. breakfast

For double rooms we always assume single-use, except you are coming with an accompanying person.

If you want the organizers to book a room for you, please indicate it in the registration form by choosing the Masarykova College (default option). This goes for the accompanying persons, too. The local organizers will collect a list of participants interested in this option and book the accommodation in Masarykova College for you. The participants then pay for the accommodation individually at the hostel's reception desk.

Those who prefer other hotels have to search and book on their own (see the list of nearby hotels in the Locations section).
