The International Workshops on Radiation Imaging Detectors are held yearly and provide an international forum for discussing current research and developments in the area of position sensitive detectors for radiation imaging, including semiconductor detectors, gas and scintillator-based detectors. Topics include processing and characterization of detector materials, hybridization and interconnect technologies, design of front-end  electronics, readout and data acquisition systems, and applications in various scientific and industrial fields.

The workshop will have plenary sessions with invited and contributed papers presented orally and poster sessions. The invited talks will be chosen to review recent advances In different areas covered in the workshop. The focus of the workshop will be research and development In the following topics:
