There is a live webcast for this event.
The goal of this forum is an exchange of experience obtained during the design, construction and installation of the current LHC tracking detectors. Evaluation of where ample or insufficient emphasis was put, problems encountered as well as excellent solutions found in order to improve performance and reliability of future tracking detectors.
IMPORTANT: Registration to the Workshop is closed, and no further registrations can be accepted as the available room capacity (120 persons) is now fully used.

List of topics: - Cooling issues inside tracker volume - Supply and return lines inside full detector volume - Deflection, stability and precision of the structures, achieved and revisited requirements for the next generation - Detectors, sub-detectors and components must survive transport loads - Thermal expansion differences inside the detector - Mass and therefore radiation lengths of electronics - Mass and radiation lengths of cables and pipes - Humidity control, inside detector volume and along services - Gas flushing and gas cooling of tracking detectors - Structural issues concerning humidity or outgassing - Choices of construction materials - Rails for support and guidance - Alignment systems, requirements and "weak modes" of the system, in-situ adjustments, sensors including load sensors - Pipe materials, pipe connection techniques and fittings - Vibration issues such as bond wire vibration (transport, operation) - Effects on mechanics during fast discharge of magnet coils - Tracker to beam-pipe interfaces, bakeout scenarios - Failure management: What do we do (or have/have not done) to achieve a tracker with maximum duty cycle - Service management: What strategies do we have to deal with services? How can we minimize installation and testing times? - Radiation and mechanics: A discussion about the impacts of radiation on the design, materials and also issues like access constraints - Maintenance scenarios and the required special tools List of speakers: Eric Anderssen Andrea Basti Richard French Mark Gallilee Corrado Gargiulo Jean-Christophe Gayde Alan Honma Nick Lumb Alessandro Mapelli Steve McMahon Antti Onnela Andrei Ostapchuk Paolo Petagna Romualdo Santoro Bart Verlaat Georg Viehhauser Eric Vigeolas Bruno Wittmer
