The objective of the LIDINE 2013 conference is to promote discussion between members of the particle and nuclear physics community about light collection in detectors based on noble elements. The neutrino community, which is now developing light collection systems for LArTPCs such as MicroBooNE and LBNE, are relative newcomers to this type of detection. However, while there are established groups in the dark matter search community and the ultra-cold neutron study community, there has never been a dedicated conference on the light collection techniques for these detectors. Therefore, this will be a unique opportunity to exchange information and for the neutrino community in the US to expand its knowledge base.
