This is the 2nd workshop on germanium detectors and technologies since the first workshop held in Berkeley in 2010. This workshop is to utilize the unique aspects of the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) in Lead, South Dakota, and the germanium (Ge) crystal growing infrastructure at the University of South Dakota (USD) by bringing researchers from several EPSCoR jurisdicitions together with key leaders in the Intensity and Cosmic Frontiers to advance underground physics focusing on dark matter detection, neutrinoless double-beta decay (0νββ), and neutrino properties and to develop opportunities for EPSCoR jurisdicitions to play key roles in the planned world-class research experiments at SURF. The purpose of this workshop is to assemble the expertise to continue developing germanium detectors and technologies for the next generation of underground physics experiments. By bringing world-leading experts to USD, the research programs at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) will be strengthened, while ESPCoR jurisdicitions participation will be increased. The next generation of dark matter and neutrino experiments will greatly benefit from the development of germanium-based technologies. This workshop is a unique opportunity for EPSCor jurisdicitions to take a leading role in developing these technologies.
