In the framework of the HL-LHC upgrade, the ATLAS experiment plans to introduce an all-silicon inner tracker (called ITK) to cope with the elevated occupancy. The challenges and goals of the Upgrade program of LHC detectors are discussed in this academic training course which summarizes the 2013 ECFA workshop .
Final decisions on the design and technical choices will be published in the Technical Design Report (TDR) by the end of 2017. Some information on the LAL and contribution can be found in :
