RD13 3-5 July, 2013 Florence, Italy
The primary goal of the Conference is to review the present status of the Semiconductor Detector apparatuses in the field of High Energy or Astroparticle Physics. In both cases the requests on the detector systems are very demanding: very large instrumented surface, radiation hardness and high reliability. Part of the talks will be devoted to describe the pixel and microstrip silicon-based detectors presently operated at the LHC experiments. The operational experience and the detector performance with the p-p runs 2009-2012 will be discussed. Another fraction of the talks will be devoted to plans for upgrading the LHC tracker detectors for the next runs of the LHC and on strategies for future high luminosity upgrades of the LHC. Studies on radiation hardness of silicon materials, diamond-based detectors, innovative solutions for optical links and power device components will be reported. The astroparticle detectors activity will also be reviewed. Semiconductor applications in different fields, like medical imaging, radioactive monitoring and one quantum-physics experiment will be rapidly touched.

The primary goal of the Conference is to review the present status of the Semiconductor Detector apparatuses in the field of High Energy or Astroparticle Physics. In both cases the requests on the detector systems are very demanding: very large instrumented surface, radiation hardness and high reliability. During the conference a large part of the talks will be devoted to describe the pixel and microstrip silicon-based detectors operated in the LHC experiments (Alice, Atlas, CMS, LHCb). The operational experience and the detector performance with the p-p runs 2010-2011 will be discussed. A fraction of the talks will describe possible LHC luminosity upgrade (HL-LHC) and recent developments on detector radiation hardness. The astroparticle detectors activity will also be reviewed. Topics related to the development and applications of detector electronics will be presented too. Finally semiconductor applications in different fields, like medical Dosimetry and Photomultipliers will be rapidly touched.

The primary goal of the Conference is to review the present status of the Semiconductor Detector apparatuses in the field of High Energy or Astroparticle Physics. In both cases the requests on the detector systems are very demanding: very large instrumented surface, radiation hardness and high reliability. During the conference a large part of the talks will be devoted to describe the pixel and microstrip silicon-based detectors installed in the LHC experiments (Alice, Atlas, CMS, LHCb). The first operational experience and the detector performance with cosmic rays run will be discussed. A fraction of the talks will describe possible LHC luminosity upgrade (SLHC) and recent developments on detector radiation hardness. The astroparticle detectors activity will also be reviewed. Topics related to the development and applications of detector electronics will be presented too. Finally semiconductor applications in different fields, like medical Dosimetry and Photomultipliers will be rapidly touched.
