Cari colleghi,
pensando di fare cosa gradita, a nome del comitato organizzatore della
conferenza in oggetto vi allego una versione testo del bollettino
che annuncia la conferenza "11th European Symposium on Semiconductor
Detectors" che si terra' a Wildbad Kreuth dal 7 all' 11 giugno 2009.
Cordiali saluti

Dear Colleague,

this is to announce the 11th European Symposium on Semiconductor 
Detectors, taking place June 7 - 11, 2009 at Wildbad Kreuth, Germany.

As on previous occasions the emphasis of this conference will be on 
physics, technology, and properties of semiconductor sensors. The 
proceedings of the conference will again be published as refereed papers 
in a special issue of Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics 
Research, Section A.

Contributions are invited for the following fields:

* Principles and Properties of Detectors
* Read-out Electronics
* Device Physics
* Detector Technology and Semiconductor Material Properties
* Defects in Base Material and Devices (including Radiation Damage)
* New Applications for Semiconductor Detectors
* Integration of Sensors and Read-out Electronics

The last conference of this series had the special focus with an 
extended session on solid state vertex detectors at collider 
experiments. This time, special emphasis will be on detectors and 
experiments at the new generation of photon sources like XFEL and LCLS. 
The extended session on this topic will be introduced by invited 
key-note speakers giving an overview of the challenges and solutions for 
these applications.

Historically the European Symposium on Semiconductor Detectors is also 
known as the "Elmau Conference". Since 2005 it found a new home at 
Wildbad Kreuth in the alpine landscape between Germany and Austria.

Kreuth is a small and quiet village close to the tourist attraction 
Tegernsee, an idyllic lake surrounded by the Bavarian Alps. The 
conference venue Wildbad Kreuth is located south of Kreuth at the foot 
of the Blauberge half way to Austria. It offers the necessary 
infrastructure and the amenities for intense discussions in a relaxed 

The following time line may be helpful for your planning:

. February 23, 2009: abstract submission deadline for conference 

. April 15, 2009: conference pre-registration deadline

. June 7, 2009: first day of the conference, conference registration 
starting at noon, first session at 4:30 pm

. June 11, 2009: last day, sessions end at noon

The latest information on the symposium can be found on our web site <> . There you can 
also find references to the proceedings of the previous conferences and 
eventually register for this symposium.

We are looking forward to seeing you at Wildbad Kreuth!
