The ICFA Instrumentation Innovation and Development Panel will
stimulate world inclusive involvement in the innovation and development
of new instrumentation for experiments at future accelerators. The
mission of the Panel is to promote research on and development of
instrumentation for use in future particle physics experiments which
engages physicists from all parts of the world. Panel activities include:
- Organization of the biennial ICFA Schools presented to advanced
graduate students and postdoctoral scientists, approximately half of
whom come from less industrialized part of the world than Europe, North
America, or Japan.
- Development and maintenance of Web-based material on instrumentation
available to anyone working in the field. Included are tutorials on the
various techniques as well as information on the operating
characteristics of the main detector components now in use.
