In the weekly Polityka (No. 25, 18-25.06.2019) there appeared an interview with prof. Art McDonald, winner of the Nobel Prize in 2015. Prof. McDonald visited AstroCeNT in May this year as a special guest at the conference “Particle Astrophysics in Poland” (20-21.05.2019) and also to discuss cooperation in connection with the accession of AstroCeNT to the emerging Global Argon Dark Matter Collaboration. In the interview, prof. McDonald underlines the importance of research that is carried out in AstroCeNT.

On 21-23 September the LIDINE 2022 conference (Light Detection in Noble Elements) was held in Warsaw. This year it was organized by Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center (NCAC) and, in particular, by AstroCeNT.
The objective of the LIDINE conference series is to promote discussion between members of the particle and nuclear physics community about detector technologies based on noble elements and their applications such as: dark matter searches, experiments measuring neutrino oscillations, solar and supernova neutrinos, coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering, neutrinoless double-beta decay, neutron EDM, and medical physics.
