Scientific Programme

  • Applications of intelligent detectors

    Applications will define the physics requirements. For example in the case of a track angle measurement device, is something that can measure angles with a certain resolution at a certain rate actually useful? What separation and position of layers is needed and what pixel of strip size. Never mind how to connect it all together.

  • Coupled layer and monolithic architectures

    Basic designs for trackers that measure angle, or some other primary. Not so much emphasis on the application itself, but in the construction and operation.

  • Development of specific components, for example low mass interposers

    R&D work on novel interconnects etc.

  • Electronic circuits (3D and conventional)

    Development of new IC's for implementation of on-detector intelligence.

  • High speed communication

    High bandwidth connections to the off-detector DAQ may be needed. How can they be implemented?

  • System integration

    Cooling, mechanics, etc. to solve specific challenges presented by structures implementing local intelligence (as opposed to generic developments applicable to conventional trackers).

  • Real Time Pattern Recognition

  • Advanced Algorithms
