Dear colleagues,

Due to the continuing uncertainty concerning the regulations and measures to reduce the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the LOC and SC have decided to organize the iWoRID2021 conference as a fully digital conference. Therefore, registration will be limited to online attendance. For practical reasons, the registration will not open on May 1st, but we will keep you informed about the registration soon.



Dear colleagues,
In the past year, the whole world has witnessed a fierce pandemic, with historical measures taken by many countries to fight it. First of all, we sincerely hope that you and your families are in good health, and want to express our sympathies to those who have been closely affected by this ruthless disease. 
Last year, the LOC and SC have decided to move the iWoRiD 2020 conference in Ghent to June 27 – July 1, 2021. It has become clear that the pandemic has not yet decreased in power, and will definitely not be completely away by June. Unfortunately, this means that it will not be possible to have an international event like the iWoRiD 2020 workshop to take place in its conventional format.
As the pandemic evolves and vaccination has started in many parts of the world, we are closely following the evolutions and the possibilities for iWoRID. As there is no doubt that some travel restrictions will still be in place by June, online participation will be possible. Decisions concerning on-site participation on the other hand can not yet be made, and will be communicated in due time. 

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us at iworid2021@ugent.be (or iworid2020@ugent.be).
Kind regards,
Matthieu Boone, LOC

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, gas and scintillator-based detectors. Topics include processing and characterization of detector materials, hybridization and interconnect technologies, design of counting or integrating 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 in poster sessions. The invited talks will be chosen to review recent advances in different areas covered in the workshop.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the Workshop will be arranged for the 22nd time on June 27- July 1, 2021 in Ghent, Belgium. Welcome!


We want to thank our sponsors and exhibitors for their contribution
