The International Workshops on Radiation Imaging Detectors are held yearly and provide an international forum for discussing current research and developments in the area of position sensitive detectors for radiation imaging, including both semiconductor detectors and scintillatorbased detectors.

Topics include processing and characterization of detector materials, design of photon counting or integrating pixel electronics, hybridization and interconnect technologies, readout systems, and applications in various scientific and industrial fields.

The workshop will have plenary sessions with invited and contributed papers presented orally, as well as a poster session. The invited talks will be chosen to review the different areas and the recent accomplishments. Social events will be organized around the workshop, including the reception and the workshop dinner.

The 8th workshop will be hosted by the Department of Physics “E. Fermi” of the University of Pisa and by the INFN - Pisa, Italy.
