With the increasing capabilities of microelectronic technology, future particle detectors will be able to yield high level features that are not only simple geometrical positions or energy measurements in the sensors used. The ability to compute such high level primitives in near real-time is what we characterize as “intelligence”.
This will enable the construction of detectors with novel functionalities, allowing the trigger logic or even the off-line analysis in experiments to handle immediately more complex features of the measurements. Two examples of new primitives are near real-time charged particle direction or charge clusters without pixel boundary effects. But the addition of such intelligence has practical challenges and in particular system issues must be addressed, such as material budget and power density.
This Workshop would provide a discussion forum for the community of scientists and engineers working on development of intelligent devices.
The objectives of the workshop will be to enhance the cross breeding of ideas, to compare concepts for incorporating intelligence in particle trackers, and to explore possibilities for application to other areas.
The format of the workshop is on plenary sessions, for a duration of 2.5 days.
This Workshop is the second of the series. The first one
was held in Berkeley in 2010.
Registration for the workshop will be by invitation
following review of abstracts.
The abstract submission deadline is January 14, 2012
Proceedings of the workshop will be published in JINST
Deadline extended to January 28, 2012.
We invite submission of abstracts in the following subjects:
*Applications of intelligent detectors
*Coupled layer and monolithic architectures
*Development of specific components
*Electronic circuits (3D and conventional) on- and off-detector
*High speed communication
*Real time pattern recognition
