The workshop will cover all aspects of electronics for particle physics experiments, and accelerator instrumentation of general interest to users.
LHC experiments (and their operational experience) will remain a focus of the meeting but a strong emphasis on R&D for future experimentation will be maintained, such as SLHC, CLIC, ILC, neutrino facilities as well as other particle and astroparticle physics experiments.
The purpose of the workshop is :
- to present results and original concepts for electronic research and development relevant to experiments as well as accelerator and beam instrumentation at future facilities
- to review the status of electronics for the LHC experiments
- to identify and encourage common efforts for the development of electronics
- to promote information exchange and collaboration in the relevant engineering and physics communities.

At the conclusion of TWEPP presentations Wednesday afternoon, there will be a short Micro Electronics User Group (MUG) meeting followed by an ASIC designers working group meeting to discuss Single Event Effects (SEE) in the next generation experiments with high radiation levels. Dealing with single event effects covering Single Event Upset (SEU), Single Event Transients (SET), Single Event Latchup (SEL) and Single Event Functional Interrupts (SEFI) will be an increasingly difficult challenge when using modern ASIC technologies with low power supply voltages. Deep submicron IC technologies with low power consumption are getting increasingly sensitive to single event effects and this must therefore be taken carefully into account both at the system level and the ASIC design level. This working group meeting will be an initial forum within the high energy physics community to share acquired knowledge and experience in this particular domain. Our current knowledge and experience with SEE’s will be introduced and summarized by a few presentations followed by an open discussion among the working group participants.
