Title: Surface events identification in the EDELWEISS germanium bolometers

Abstract

In the first phase of the EDELWEISS-II Dark Matter search, 23 germanium detectors with NTD thermal sensors and 7 detectors with NbSi thin films are going to be used at 20mK for the direct detection of WIMPs. In this paper, we are describing the different techniques of identification of surface events that might improve strongly the physics results of this experiment.
