Abstract

NETSCAN is a track reconstruction algorithm used in Emulsion Cloud Chambers (ECC). NETSCAN and Emulsion Cloud Chambers were used in the DONUT experiment to detect Tau-neutrinos interactions. The algorithm has been revised in order to cope with the OPERA event analysis performed in Japan. A new version of NETSCAN was necessary to effectively analyze the most massive emulsion experiment in history with limited resources.
