The XVI Workshop on Resistive Plate Chambers and Related Detectors RPC2022 will be held at CERN in the main Auditorium, 26 September - 1 October 2022.

This edition aims to acknowledge the fundamental role of CERN in detector technologies for the worldwide community of particle physicists.

The RPC detection techniques were largely employed in elementary particle and astro-particle experiments. The workshop will focus on both the performance and possible upgrade scenarios of large RPC systems as well as applications outside the particle physics context.

The most challenging questions in physics are now related to the search for dark matter, long lived particles, astro-particle physics, and physics at high energy colliders. This calls for new challenges in detector layout, front end electronics, materials, gas mixtures, aging and new ideas for improving the detector’s performance in the domain of rate capability and space-time resolution.

The workshop will have invited reviews and selected contributions, as well as a poster session.
