Italy has been one of the key players in the effort which led to the discovery awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize for Physics, with a highly recognized technological contribution both to the LHC and the experiments.

The top priority of the European Strategy for Particle Physics is the exploitation of the full potential of the LHC 
including the high-luminosity upgrade of the machine and detectors. 
The Workshop will focus on the 
upgrades of the experiments for the HL-LHC, primarily needed for:
  • tracking, calorimetry and muon systems, with associated front-end and read-out electronics 
  • trigger, data acquisition and computing.
The goal is to establish a framework to discuss and work on new ideas for research and development where expertise can be shared and expand across the different INFN experimental groups.  
This process aims also to promote a constructive interaction with national industry, research centers and facilities to better prepare for Horizon2020 applications
