ISSW 2024 Call for Papers

The International SPAD Sensor Workshop

4-6 June 2024 – Trento, Italy

 

The 2024 International SPAD Sensor Workshop (ISSW) is a biennial event focusing on Single-Photon Avalanche Diodes (SPAD), SPAD-based sensors and related applications. The workshop welcomes all researchers (including PhDs, postdocs, and early-career researchers), practitioners, and educators interested in these topics.

 

After two on-line editions, the fourth edition of the workshop will return to an in-person only format.
The event will take place in the city of Trento, in northern Italy, hosted at Fondazione Bruno Kessler, in a venue suited to encourage interaction and a shared experience among the attendees.

The workshop will follow a 1-day long introductory school on SPAD sensor technology, which will be held in the same venue as the workshop on June 3rd, 2024.

 

The workshop will include a mix of invited talks and, for the first time, peer-reviewed contributions.

Accepted works will be published on the International Image Sensor Society website (https://imagesensors.org/).

Submitted works may cover any of the aspects of SPAD technology, including device modelling, engineering and fabrication, SPAD characterization and measurements, pixel and sensor architectures and designs, and SPAD applications.

 

Topics

Papers on the following SPAD-related topics are solicited:

      CMOS/CMOS-compatible technologies

      SiPMs

      III-V, Ge-on-Si

      Modelling

      Quenching and front-end circuits

      Architectures

      Time-to-Digital Converters

      Smart histogramming techniques

      Applications of SPAD arrays, such as:

o   Depth sensing / ToF / LiDAR

o   Time-resolved imaging

o   Low-light imaging

o   High dynamic range imaging

o   Biophotonics

o   Computational imaging

o   Quantum imaging

o   Quantum RNG

o   High energy physics

o   Free space communication

      Emerging technologies & applications

 

Paper submission

Submission portal is now open! - Workshop proposals must be submitted online. Click here to be redirected to the submission website. You may need to register first, then search for the "2024 International SPAD Sensor Workshop" within the list of conferences using the dedicated search bar.

Paper format - Kindly take note that the ISSW employs a single-stage submission process, necessitating the submission of camera-ready papers. Each submission should comprise a 1000-character abstract and a 3-page paper, equivalent to 1 page of text and 2 pages of images. The submission must include the authors' name(s) and affiliation, mailing address, telephone, and email address. The formatting can adhere to either a style that integrates text and figures, akin to the standard IEEE format, or a structure with a page of text followed by figures, mirroring the format of the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) or the IEEE Symposium on VLSI Technology and Circuits. Examples illustrating these formats can be accessed in the online database of the International Image Sensor Society. 


The deadline for paper submission is 23:59 CET, Friday December 8th, 2023.
Following a large number of requests, the deadline for paper submission has been postponed to 23:59 CET, Friday January 12th, 2024.

Papers will be considered on the basis of originality and quality. High quality papers on work in progress are also welcome. Papers will be reviewed confidentially by the Technical Program Committee.

Accepted papers will be made freely available for download from the International Image Sensor Society website. Please note that no major modifications are allowed.

UPDATE!

Authors will be notified of the acceptance of their abstract & posters at the latest by Wednesday Jan 31st, 2024.

Due to the large number of submitted works and the extended deadline, we expect to notify authors of the acceptance of their abstracts & posters by the end of February, 2024. 

 

Poster submission

In addition to talks, we wish to offer all graduate students, post-docs, and early-career researchers an opportunity to present a poster on their research projects or other research relevant to the workshop topics .

If you wish to take up this opportunity, please submit a 1000-character abstract and a 1-page description (including figures) of the proposed research activity, along with authors’ name(s) and affiliation, mailing address, telephone, and e-mail address.

The deadline for paper submission is 23:59 CET, Friday December 8th, 2023.
