This is the 6th in a series of Symposia devoted to the design, processing and application of semiconductor tracking detectors. All previous symposia were held on the Pacific Rim.
(Hiroshima 1993, 1995, 2000, 2004, Melbourne 1997).

Many of the large-scale projects, which occupied our attention in the past conferences, are taking data or are very close to successful completion (CDF, D0, Babar, Belle, ATLAS, CMS, LHCb, ALICE, GLAST, among others). So while much of the last conference was under the theme “Lessons learned,” we would like to put the emphasis of this year's conference on “Future trends,” while still reserving time for reviewing past accomplishments. This will also cover increased applications outside of the traditional use in HEP.

This year's symposium will start with a special “Tracking Workshop” in honor of Abe Seiden's 60th birthday.

Topics Include:
Simulations, Technology, Pixel and CCD Detectors, Radiation Tolerant Materials, ASICs, Large Scale Applications, Medical Applications and New Ideas and Future Applications.

Important Deadlines:
June 1, 2006 - Abstract submission deadline.
June 11, 2006 - Early registration ends.
August 11, 2006 - Registration ends.
August 11, 2006 - Carmel Mission Inn reservation deadline.
August 15, 2006 - Conference record submission deadline.
October 1, 2006 - NIM paper (tentative deadline).
