The UK has a long involvement in the development of the Silicon sensor technologies for position sensitive charged-particle detection. Devices have been produced for the tracking detectors in a range of previous, existing and future experiments as well as for a possible future application in particle flow calorimetry. CMOS technology, because of the high level of integration it allows and its relative cost-effectiveness compared to other Silicon based technologies, is today widely expected to become the baseline technology for future Silicon detectors. Several groups in the UK now work on the development of CMOS technologies for both future tracking and calorimetry applications. It is perceived that for the UK to play as significant a role in the development of CMOS sensors for future experiments as it has done for other Silicon technologies, UK groups need to present a joined-up strategy to STFC and persuade it to identify CMOS as a key technology area for the future of our field. We are organising this one day meeting for the wider particle physics community to discuss its requirements ambitions and to start discussions on how to shape a more joined-up approach. The meeting will also attempt to present an overview of the CMOS technology options and applications that are being pursued.
