We are pleased to announce the 3rd ICFA Beam Dynamics Mini-Workshop on Machine Learning Applications for Particle Accelerators will be held in Chicago, Il, USA. This will be the third workshop in a series that began in 2018 at SLAC, CA, USA followed by a second workshop held at Villigen PSI, Switzerland in 2019. A third workshop had been planned to be held in Seoul, Korea in 2020, but unfortunately had to be canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The goal of this third workshop is to continue to work on building a world-wide community of researchers and engineers interested in applying artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to particle accelerators.

The workshop will consist of four topics:

  1. Tuning/optimization/control
  2. Prognostics/alarm handling/anomaly-breakout detection
  3. Data analysis
  4. Simulations/modeling

Talks will be given by practitioners from various accelerator facilities around the world. The workshop aims to:

  • Collect and unify the community’s understanding of the relevant state-of-the-art ML techniques.
  • Provide a tutorials of machine learning for accelerator physicists and engineers.
  • Seed collaborations between laboratories, academia, and industry.

Please contact the organizers if you are interested in attending.

This 3rd ICFA Beam Dynamics Mini-Workshop is open to the public and we do not plan to record the proceedings. To be eligible to attend, all participants must register online by November 4, 2022. For questions or assistance with registering, please contact the Workshop Coordinator.
