The LHC experiments have adopted now diamond detectors as e.g. beam monitors, and there are new ideas to use 3D detectors made out of diamond to push the radiation hardness even further. The UK has a long tradition in being leading in the field of 3D detectors (Silicon), synthetic diamond (manufactured by element six) and has various activities on diamond detectors. The half day meeting is intended to bring together the UK groups interested in diamond detector research for HEP experiments and other applications (synchrotron beam monitoring, radiation therapy beam monitors), with experts in the 3D silicon field, and to discuss recent progress in the field of 3D diamond detectors.
