The workshop will cover all aspects of electronics for particle physics experiments, and accelerator instrumentation of general interest to users.
LHC experiments (and their operational experience) will remain a focus of the meeting but a strong emphasis on R&D for future experimentation will be maintained, such as SLHC, CLIC, ILC, neutrino facilities as well as other particle and astroparticle physics experiments.
The purpose of the workshop is :
- to present results and original concepts for electronic research and development relevant to experiments as well as accelerator and beam instrumentation at future facilities
- to review the status of electronics for the LHC experiments
- to identify and encourage common efforts for the development of electronics
- to promote information exchange and collaboration in the relevant engineering and physics communities.
The Opto Working Group will review the status of four optoelectronics projects: GBT, Versatile Transceiver, LOC and US-CDRD. In the first part of the meeting, attendants will get an overview of the on-going work and will participate to a discussion on the status and evolution of these projects. In the second part of the meeting, progress with the evaluation of Silicon-photonics in our community will be presented and its potential will be discussed.
