The Pixel 2016 workshop was held in Sestri Levante, a renowned touristic resort on the Ligurian coast, in early September.
It is the 8th of a series that initiated in the year 2000 in Genoa and travelled, with bi-annual frequency, to US, Europe and Asia.
It is the only workshop entirely dedicated to the technology of the pixel detectors and all the applications
in particle and x-ray physics. In this report I will illustrate a personal view of the most significant advances which have
been presented and discussed at the workshop.
