Two decades ago, the technological advantages of Crosetto’s invention of the 3D-Flow system in the advancement of science and in the discovery of new particles were recognized at a major international scientific review requested by the director of the Supercollider and held at the Fermi National Laboratory.

Today the sentence Crosetto used to conceive his invention in 1992 is still relevant to young scientists and PhD students who want to address and find the best synergy between detector and electronics for creating a powerful instrument in High Energy Physics with the capability to trap (capture the good signals, process and measure all characteristics of the particle that one would like to find) any new particle that is expected to have some characteristics complying with a specific real-time algorithm designed by a physicist.

Here is that sentence: “Design a system (electronics + detector) that is breaking the speed-barrier of the input data rate and algorithm execution time, with the capability to capture as many good event as possible, executing a specific real-time algorithm that could be changed at a later date after first data taking, with the capability to efficiently exchange data with neighboring channels with no boundaries, to efficiently reject the noise by executing complex algorithms for a time longer than the time interval between two consecutive input data sets and at the lowest cost per valid event captured compared to current systems.”

The 3D-Flow system architecture and its related innovations in the detector assembly, segmentation and coupling of the detector will cause a paradigm shift in the instrumentation of particle physics (particle tracking, calorimetry, imaging detectors, Trackers, Time-of-Flight), medical imaging (CT, PET, SPECT), space research, molecular physics, and true 3D imaging.

The reason for this workshop is to understand why after 20 years of work and billions of dollars spent the result is having built instrumentations which, measuring the same physical quantities (e.g. energy of the Higgs boson) related to a given phenomenon in nature, yet provide two different values, and in another experiment measure the speed of particles (e.g. neutrino speed) with an apparatus setup that from its conception can provide only inconclusive results because it is open to too many uncontrollable errors.

The need for this workshop is to ask every researcher to establish a link between their proposed research and the ultimate objective to build instrumentation capable of discovering new particles and reduce the cost of High Energy Physics experiments, when compared with others projects, and to point out advantages and weaknesses. It is necessary to stimulate out-of-the-box thinking to fully understand the synergies of Crosetto’s inventions in the field of detector, detector segmentation and assembly, electronics, algorithm development, the coupling of the electronics with the detector etc., as compared with other systems.

The scope of this workshop is to summarize the state-of-the-art of the technological developments in the various fields of application for particle detection, to analyze the limits of current systems which led to inconclusive results and to the need to replace the current first-level triggers and other components. Crosetto will make a short presentation of his inventions that would have saved money and increased the efficiency of the experiments. Leaders from major HEP experiments, such as CMS, Atlas, LHCb and Alice, as well as the physicists who approved measuring neutrino’s speed with OPERA experiment, young scientists and PhD students will be invited to analyze the limits of current HEP experiments and how they are overcome by the current upgrades, and to compare their approach with respect to the synergy of Crosetto’s inventions and with respect to other projects presented. This last phase will take place during the round table discussion.

The benefits from this workshop are to reduce the upgrade costs of HEP experiments at LHC and all future experiments, to increase their power and efficiency in discovering new particles, and to start a paradigm change that will save money and open the door to greater advancement in science. The dialogue in this workshop with leaders who are designing and building upgrades of current experiments and new experiments is key to understanding all advantages and benefits from inventions which have been available for 20 years, instead of building upgrades only to find out years from now that they could have been done at a much lower cost and with better performance.

It is foreseen to have introductory and overview talks during the first 90 minutes made by internationally recognized experts. The focus of the following 60 minutes will be short (5 minutes, including questions) oral presentations by young scientists and PhD students. The last 2 hours will be dedicated to a round table discussion extended to participants via web EVO system that is used by HEP teleconferencing and can be used by any individual. We encourage young researchers to present and discuss their work. The entire event will be broadcast worldwide by professionals in communication.

If you want to contribute to this workshop, please send your abstract through the conference website before June 15th. A preliminary program will be available in the conference booklet.
