Valerio Bocci is senior Technologiest of INFN Roma. He graduate in Particle Phisics in 1991 in the University of Rome Tor Vergata with a thesis A Single Photon trigger in DELPHI experiment at CERN. He continued the work at CERN in the DEPHI Trigger group designing the main modules for trigger and timing distribution. In 1993 he started to work in KLOE experiment in National in Frascati Laboratory (LNF) as one of the main designer of the Trigger system and Data acquisition. From 1998 he worked in the Atlas experiment trigger group at CERN and he was one of the first in scientific Literature to propose and dimostrate the possibily to use Field Programmable Gate Array in radiation environment, his work was cited also from indipendent study of NASA. In 1999 join the LHCb experiment at CERN and was the ideator and coordinator of the control system of muon chamber subdetector. In 2006 he was the Electronic coordinator of the Electromagnetic calorimeter of SuperB proposal of experiment. Now as Electronic lab coordinator of INFN Rome , he is involved in LHCb upgrade and join this group with the idea to transfer his competence in particle detectors and related electronics in the health field.
I am a particle physicist, and I graduated in 2011 at Rome University “Sapienza”. I started to be interested in medical physics since my very first years. For my Thesis I took part at an experiment on a therapeutic Carbon Beam in Catania, on which data I performed an analysis in order to study the correlation between dose delivered to the target and beta+ emitters activation for dosimetric purposes. Between 2012 and 2015 I was a PhD Student in Physics, and for my thesis, I studied a novel technique of radio guided surgery that uses beta minus emitters (instead of gammas), with strong improve in detecting resolution and dose limitation. My principal activity is with FLUKA Monte Carlo, in which I import Dicom files from patients scans (PET/CT) in order to study the behavior of our detector in a realistic environment. I am currently a permanent INFN researcher. Winner of SPRINGER THESIS AWARD in 2015.
Full professor of the Dept of Physics of the University of Rome La Sapienza. Graduated in 1993 with a thesis on the Search of the Higgs Boson with the L3 Experiment, after the PhD moved to SLAC to work on the measurement of CP violation in B decays with the BaBar experiment where he lead the first measurement of sin2beta. After being the Physics Coordinator of the BaBar experiment in 2005-2006, he carried on phenomenological studies on the possible nature of candidate tetraquark state. Since 2008 he has gradually concentrated on applications of particle physics detectors, starting with diagnostics in laser plasma acceleration and now concentrating on dosimetry in hadrontherapy and the development of a novel radio-guided surgery technique.

Riccardo Paramatti is a researcher at INFN Roma since the end of 2005. He got his PHD in the L3 Collaboration at the CERN LEP collider in 2001 and then moved to CMS, one of the experiment at the LHC. He participated to the construction and the commissioning of the lead tungstate electromagnetic calorimeter of CMS and more recently in all the calibration activities of this detector. In the years 2011-13 he took part to the analysis of Higgs in two photon channel and he is now involved in the search for new physics in di-photon final state. Finally he's working on the R&D for LHC phase II calorimeters. Since 2014 he is actively contributing to the ARPG activities, performing forward fragmentation studies of heavy ion therapy beams on PMMA phantoms.

I'm a researcher of the INFN and I work at the Sapienza University where I graduated in 1999. Since my PhD, I've been working on the Muon System of the LHCb experiment. I was part of the team that developed the Triple-GEM detector for the inner part of the System and I worked on the study and the optimization of the performance the MWPC. In the last years, I collaborated with the DREAM group to the R&D of a Dual Readout calorimeter, focusing on the homogenous electromagnetic section. I'm now studying and testing micro-pattern gas detectors for future experiments. Recently, I joined the ARPG collaborating to the beam experiment preparation, detector development and data analysis.
I graduated in electronic engineering at the Polytechnic University of Bari. Since 2008 I'm working in electronic lab of INFN Rome as technician.
Associate Professor of the "Basic and Applied Sciences for Engineering" Department of the University of Rome "La Sapienza". Graduated in 2000 the BaBar experiment, he spent his PhD in the Babar experiment working on the study of semileptonic B decays measuring the |Vub| element of the CKM matrix. Since 2004 he started the study of leptonic B decays at the LHCb experiment at the LHC collider at CERN, contributing to the Bd,s to µµ decay study. In 2009 he also started his activity in the applied research contributing to the Fragmentation studies (FIRST), the secondary production in hadrontherapy beams interaction with PMMA phantoms (Explora collaboration and LNS, GSI, CNAO and HIT measurement campaigns) and dosimetric tasks (RDH, INSIDE).

Cecilia Voena is a researcher at INFN Roma. She is member of the MEG collaboration at the Paul Scherrer Institute (Switzerland) that searches for physcs beyond the Standard Model (of particle physics). As far as applied physics is concerned, she is working on the design and reconstruction software of the dose profiler for hadrontherapy.
