2nd Announcement

Future Directions for Accelerator R&D at Fermilab

Accelerator R&D has played a crucial role in enabling scientific discovery in the past century and will continue to play this role in the years to come. In the U.S., the Office of High Energy Physics (OHEP) of DOE’s Office of Science is developing a plan for national accelerator R&D stewardship. It is examining the uses of accelerators throughout society, the desired performance characteristics of these and future accelerators, and the R&D efforts in the private and government sectors. To support this effort, Fermilab has organized a workshop on the Future Directions of Accelerator R&D at Fermilab.  This event will take place May 11-13, 2009 at The Lodge at Geneva Ridge, Lake Geneva Wisconsin.

The workshop will begin at 4:00 pm with registration and a welcome reception on Monday, May 11th followed by two brief talks starting at 5:30 pm.  Agenda details can be found on the website http://apc.fnal.gov/ARDWS/index.html

Attendance at this workshop is by invitation only and no registration fee will be charged.  Participants will be asked to confirm there attendance via an on-line registration site at a later date.  A complementary dinner is planned for the evening of May 12th and lunches on Tuesday and Wednesday will be provided at no charge.

The Lodge at Geneva Ridge is now accepting room reservations.  Please contact the hotel directly to make a reservation at 1-800-225-5558 or 1-262-248-9121.  There is a special workshop rate of $109.00 plus tax per night for the rooms.  “Fermilab meeting” should be mentioned when making the reservations.

1st Announcement

Future Directions for Accelerator R&D at Fermilab

 

Particle accelerators are a major invention of the 20th century. They are engines of discovery, the most powerful microscopes in existence, the brightest light sources, and an invaluable tool for research in material, chemistry and life sciences. Accelerators are also a driving force for the advancement of numerous technologies including superconductivity, vacuum, cryogenics, microwave devices, radiation-hard materials, instrumentation, remote operation and control, computing, data storage and global communication networks.

Accelerator R&D has played a crucial role in enabling scientific discovery in the past century and will continue to play this role in the years to come. In the U.S., the Office of High Energy Physics (OHEP) of DOE’s Office of Science is developing a plan for national accelerator R&D stewardship. It is examining the uses of accelerators throughout society, the desired performance characteristics of these and future accelerators, and the R&D efforts in the private and government sectors. To support this effort, Fermilab will organize a workshop for Future Directions of Accelerator R&D at Fermilab. This will take place from May 11 to 13, 2009 at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin (about 60 miles north of Fermilab). The purpose of this workshop is to review the status of the current research and development in the field of accelerator science and advanced accelerator technology. The intent is to have open, friendly discussions of numerous proposals for experiments and programs at the lab. The objective of the workshop is to:

The ILC Test and AARD Facility at the NML is currently under construction and is expected to provide first beam in late 2011.  This facility will have an RF photoinjector providing 40 MeV e- beam to a string of (eventually) 6 SC RF cryomodules.  There will be additional 40 MeV beamlines available for AARD.  At the downstream end of the cryomodule string there will be a test area large enough to house a small storage ring and several test beamlines with beam energy up to 1.5 GeV.  More information can be found on the Workshop web page:

This workshop will briefly review accelerator R&D activities around the world and devote most of the time to brainstorming. The attendance is by invitation with a maximum number of attendees of 50. There will be no registration fee.

The Organizing Committee members are:
Vladimir Shiltsev (Chair)
Michael Church
Panagiotis Spentzouris
