FEE2009 is the seventh in a series of meetings designed to bring together scientists and engineers involved in developing integrated circuit electronics for particle physics and related applications. Participants have an opportunity to learn about the latest advances in semiconductor technology, to exchange ideas on innovative circuit techniques, and to discuss common problems, solutions, and new directions in detector readout.

This year's meeting finds technology moving to the sub-50nm feature size regime, and research applications broadening from traditional HEP to photon science, astrophysics, and related areas.

Designers are facing challenges in equipping large-area, finely-segmented detectors with complex readout electronics, and many novel architectures and interconnection techniques have been proposed. For the FEE2009 meeting, topics to be discussed include:

  • Nanoscale devices and fabrication processes
  • 3D/vertical integration
  • Fine-pitch interconnect
  • Low voltage analog design
  • Circuits for extreme environments
  • Front-end circuits for particle physics, photon science, astrophysics, and medical instrumentation

The meeting will be held May 18-21 at the Montauk Yacht Club, a scenic location with excellent conference facilities and many nearby attractions. Participation will be by invitation of the Organizing Committee.
