The 11th Advance Accelerator
Concepts Workshop will be held in the Student
Activity Center on the Stony
Brook University campus from June 21 - 26, 2004. The workshop
is organized by Stony
Brook University and the Brookhaven
National Laboratory's Accelerator Test Facility.
Brook University Student Activities Center
(SAC) will be the venue for the workshop sessions, the
opening reception, and registration material pick-up.
Attendees may pick up their registration materials either
during the opening reception on Sunday evening (6:00-8:30
PM), or on Monday morning. The registration desk will
be located in the main lobby of the SAC until Tuesday.
After that, attendees may contact the workshop secretary
in the workshop office located in SAC room 312 on the
The name "Advanced
Accelerator Physics" covers LONG TERM research and development
in accelerator physics. It includes R&D of new concepts,
devices and technologies in accelerator and beam physics.
Some of the topics in Advanced Accelerator
R&D are laser acceleration of electrons, wake field acceleration,
novel high power rf sources, new diagnostics, Free-Electron
Lasers, generating high brightness electron beams etc.
Laser acceleration methods cover many
approaches, such as the use of plasma beat-waves, plasma wake-fields,
Inverse-Cerenkov Acceleration, Inverse FEL Acceleration and
more. The community doing research in these long-term Accelerator
and Beam Physics R&D topics meets at Advanced Accelerator
Concepts Workshops to exchange ideas, promote the research
in this field and provide a forum for publication of new ideas
in this field.
The Advanced Accelerator Concepts workshop
is the only acknowledged and fully sponsored forum that provides
a platform for inter- and cross-disciplinary discussions on
various aspects of advanced accelerator and beam physics/technology
concepts covering a wide range of applications--from High
Energy Colliders to Synchrotron Radiation Sources. The wide
scope of the workshop includes new methods of particle acceleration
to high energies, techniques for production of ultrahigh gradient
electromagnetic fields in the laboratory, diagnostics and
control of particle/photon beams to ultra-short dimensions
and ultrafast time scales, and various energy and beam sources.
