19 - 21 October, 2020

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, is the largest particle accelerator in the world to probe the fundamental questions about the nature. The particle detectors which are part of the LHC experiments play a key role to achieve the physics objectives. This workshop will cover the current R&D progress and performance of tracking detectors being used in high energy physics experiments and other applications.


  • Silicon Detectors: Physics and Principle
  • Tracking Detectors at LHC and their performance
  • CMS Phase-2 Tracker Upgrade Project by 2024
  • CMS Tracker Mechanics and Ladder Assembly
  • Silicon Strip and Pixel Detectors
  • Silicon Detector Assembly
  • Gas Electron Multiplier Detectors
  • Resistive Plate Chambers
