Module of Opportunity for DUNE


The DUNE experiment consists of four 10kton liquid-argon detector modules in separate cryostats. The technology choices for the first three modules have been described in the recent DUNE TDR. A fourth module will complete the DUNE Far Detector. This module provides opportunity for further development of liquid-argon or alternate technologies in support of the DUNE physics goals.

The DUNE Collaboration invites the broader particle physics community to participate in a workshop to explore opportunities for novel detector technologies for this "module of opportunity". The meeting will cover all major aspects of liquid argon TPC technology, including proposals for improvements in tracking, photon detection, electronics, high voltage, electronics and data-acquisition, considering improvements in detector integration and installation.

New detector concepts that can satisfy and expand the DUNE physics goals are encouraged.


General workshop registration closes on October 11, 2019.

Evening Event

Registered participants are invited to attend the no-host dinner on Tuesday, November 12, 2019. Location and time to be determined, but we are considering the Riverhead Aquarium, which requires a minimum of 55 people. The cost is $60 per person for dinner and there will be an additional cash bar.


When booking your reservation, you may need to guarantee your room with a credit card. Check with your hotel about their cancellation policy and if they offer shuttle service. Details...
