(All-Virtual replacement for TIPP2020).
TIPP2020 was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated travel restrictions. It is reborn one year later, as TIPP2021, an online "virtual" conference.
TIPP 2021 is the fifth Technology and Instrumentation in Particle Physics conference in the new series of international conferences in the field of particle physics sponsored by IUPAP. The program focuses on all areas of detector development and instrumentation in particle physics, astro-particle physics and closely related fields like microlectronics and medical instrumentation.
Since this is a science driven cross-disciplinary conference on Technology and Instrumentation, the overview talks should start from science motivations, then focus on the challenges in technology and instrumentation, how the experiment did overcome those challenges, the experience of designing and building the systems and the lessons learned. What would especially be good to hear is not only what the challenges were, but what challenges one is still struggling with! This conference is not for polished talks about all that is beautiful and works well. We want to hear what the limitations are in the current experiments and focus on ideas for breaking down the barriers. The program will be organized around four central themes:
III) READOUT AND DATA PROCESSING.
IV) TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER AND IMPACT ON OTHER SCIENCES.
All can include novel technologies that may help to overcome some of the present technological barriers. Typical examples are processes to achieve 3D integration, Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems, novel techniques for the cooling of detectors and electronics, usage of photonics for light detection and transmission of signals, and technologies from other fields of science that show potential for particle physics.
Plenary and parallel sessions will be devoted to each of these themes.
