These two volumes present the proceedings of the International Conference on Technology and Instrumentation in Particle Physics 2017 (TIPP2017), which was held in Beijing, China from 22 to 26 May 2017. Gathering selected articles on the basis of their quality and originality, it highlights the latest developments and research trends in detectors and instrumentation for all branches of particle physics, particle astrophysics and closely related fields. This is the second volume, and focuses on the main themes Astrophysics and space instrumentation, Front-end electronics and fast data transmission, Trigger and data acquisition systems, Machine detectors, Interfaces and beam instrumentation, Backend readout structures and embedded systems, Medical imaging, and Security & other applications.
The TIPP2017 is the fourth in a series of international conferences on detectors and instrumentation, held under the auspices of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP). The event brings together experts from the scientific and industrial communities to discuss their current efforts and plan for the future. The conference's aim is to provide a stimulating atmosphere for scientists and engineers from around the world.
Prof. LIU Zhen-An is a senior research scientist of Institute of High Energy Physics(IHEP), Chinese Academy of Sciences(CAS) and a Professor in University of Chinese Academy of Sciences(UCAS). He has been working in the fields of instrumentation for particle and nuclear experimental physics, including detector, electronics, trigger, data acquisition development, and teaching in electronics. He has been responsible for the design and construction of BESIII trigger system and now for maintenance, and he is now active in the Belle II collaboration in Japan, in PANDA and DEPFET collaboration in Germany, and TREND experiment in China, leading a team for fast data readout, trigger and data acquisition designing tasks. He is an executive member of PICMG, CCTS officer of xTCA standard, TNC and CANPS committee member of IEEE/NPSS, committee member of Chinese NED Society, and editor of both Chinese Journal: Chinese Physics C and Nuclear Electronics and Detection Technology.
