Main & Sub Classifications

Author Information

(*) Main Classification 1: Colliders

Classification 1 is devoted to synchrotrons and storage rings for physics. It includes lepton and hadron colliders presently in operation, under construction or under development. Among the subjects for this session are operating experience and performance limitations, upgrade plans, accelerator physics and technology issues specific to a certain collider and the design and R&D for future projects.

(*) Main Classification 2: Synchrotron Light Sources and FELs

Classification 2 covers Light Sources based on synchrotron storage rings and linacs including Energy Recovery Linacs (ERLs) and FELs. These light sources incorporate advanced insertion devices, including high quality planar and helical field undulators based on permanent magnet or electromagnet technologies. Associated accelerator systems, such as injectors, booster synchrotrons and high brightness electron sources can also be proposed for this Session, as can laser systems and their use. Papers presented can be project descriptions or cover individual aspects of light sources. Both theoretical and experimental results are solicited.

(*) Main Classification 3: Advanced Concepts and Future Directions

Classification 3 is devoted (i) to all aspects of the design of linear colliders, neutrino factories and muon colliders, their challenges and limitations (accelerator physics, accelerating systems, beam delivery systems, etc.) together with the status and experimental results of the test facilities; and (ii) to new concepts of accelerating techniques which may overcome the present limitations due to size and cost of future large accelerators or give access to very new beam characteristics.

Main Classification 4: Sources and Medium Energy Accelerators

Classification 4 is devoted to designing, developing, upgrading, constructing and commissioning low-, medium- and high-energy hadron accelerators, excluding hadron colliders. The session includes ion sources, electrostatic accelerators, proton and ion linear accelerators, proton and ion synchrotrons, radioactive beam facilities, antiproton accumulators and collectors, ion accumulator and storage rings, cyclotrons, synchrocyclotrons, FFAGs and any other similar machines. Both low- and high-intensity machines are covered, as are all relevant aspects of high-intensity fixed-target machines such as proton drivers for spallation neutron sources, neutrino factories, etc.

Main Classification 5: Beam Dynamics and Electromagnetic Fields

Classification 5 includes reviews and progress reports on general aspects of electro-magnetic interaction of charged particle beams in accelerators and storage rings. It covers linear and non-linear beam optics, modeling of externally applied or beam-generated electro-magnetic fields, as well as theory, observations and simulations of single-particle dynamics and collective effects, both coherent and incoherent. The emphasis is on deepening the understanding of fundamental processes or limitations governing beam dynamics and uncovering possible new mechanisms relevant to accelerator design and performance, independent of technological or project-specific aspects.

Main Classification 6: Instrumentation and Controls

Classification 6 is devoted to measurement and control of the beam parameters in particle accelerators including beam diagnostics and instrumentation, beam feedback systems, timing and synchronization schemes and laser-based instrumentation. Included also are contributions on accelerator/storage ring control systems and operational aspects of modern accelerators such as alignment and surveying methods, machine protection systems, and issues pertaining to reliability and operability and to radiation monitoring and safety.

Main Classification 7: Accelerator Technology

Classification 7 is devoted to contributions on the design, construction, testing and performance of accelerator components or subsystems, with emphasis on technological aspects and methods. Special attention is due to technological developments that allow to improve accelerators from the point of view of performance, size or cost effectiveness.
