The workshop will bring together experts from the LHC and other high energy physics experiments using large silicon tracking detectors. Those involved in the design, construction, commissioning and operation of the current detectors as well as those involved in the R&D, design or construction of future detectors are invited to attend. The focus of this workshop is to review in more detail the challenges and unexpected problems encountered in recent large silicon detector construction and operation. In this way we can help communicate the lessons learned so that these can be applied to the next generation of detectors. The main topics concerning silicon detectors we would like to examine are those believed to have had the most QA issues, namely, the sensors, the modules, the integration, and the cooling systems. The focus should always be on the quality issues encountered in the construction, testing, integration, commissioning and operation of the components, modules, on up to the full detector system. Although the primary focus is the LHC detectors, other large silicon detector projects are included in the scope of the workshop.
