Dear colleagues,

 As you may have heard, the Belgian government has implemented rather strict measures against the COVID-19 outbreak. Most of these measures are currently in place until mid-April, and a lot can happen between that moment and early June, both in positive and negative direction. We have to take into account the possibility of the workshop being cancelled or postponed. However, we do not want the scientific and economic consequences to last unnecessarily long, and want to give iWoRiD2020 a chance to still take place. For this, we need your cooperation:
-       Please do submit your abstract on the website http://www.iworid2020.org​ . We have extended the deadline until March 16 (Monday evening) so you can still do so. The abstracts are relatively short, and can be maintained in case the conference is postponed.
-       Please do not pay the registration fee yet, as this would cause a lot of administration in case iWoRiD is cancelled. Feel free to complete the registration on the website already (this can be done without any payment).

 We will make a final decision on the organization of iWoRiD2020 around mid-April, when the effects from the current drastic measures should be more clear.

 Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation!



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.

This year the Workshop will be arranged for the 22nd time on June 7-11, 2020 in Ghent, Belgium. Welcome!


We want to thank our sponsors and exhibitors for their contribution
