Front-line science builds on new ideas, but also relies on breakthrough instrumentation. Many activities in the Berkeley scientific community are directed towards developing advanced measurement techniques and instrumentation. Despite very disparate goals, some of these efforts share common problems and could benefit from sharing experience and expertise. As a first step in establishing a forum for information exchange and interdisciplinary collaboration in instrumentation research and development we are launching a monthly Interdisciplinary Instrumentation Colloquium. We encourage participation from LBNL, UC Berkeley, Space Sciences Laboratory and collaborating institutions.
