Papers describing significant advances in the state of the art of scientific results and understanding in the Workshop issues are solicited. Experimental results or theoretical results addressing experiments are encouraged. Emphasis should be on new fundamental physics and chemistry of materials for detector applications. Abstracts will be selected on the basis of:.
(1) originality
(2) significance of results
(3) quality and completeness of the research
(4) breadth of interest

Extended abstracts of all accepted papers will be published in the Book of Extended Abstracts, which will be distributed at the Workshop. Submitted full-length manuscripts, after formal review, will be published in the Journal of Electronic Materials.
