The International Image Sensor Workshop is held every two years.   It alternates between USA, Europe and Asia.    In 2021 it was held as a virtual workshop. The main topic of the workshop is solid state image sensors, their design and application. More than 500 people attended the workshop last year.  There were 86 papers, 52 regular papers, 32 posters and 2 invited talks.    In this presentation we will highlight a few key papers, from the workshop, covering the most important image sensor developments during the last two years.    These developments include pixel scaling, pixel level optics, global shutter image sensors, SPAD array sensors, high speed image sensors and low light image sensors.
