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.

Special Event

Registered participants are invited to attend the Meet & Greet which will be held in the Palmer House a Hilton Hotel Honore Ballroom on November 1st from 6-8 p.m.

Fermilab Tour

Fermilab has organized an optional tour that will offer participates the opportunity to see a portion of the accelerator complex which will showcase robotics and AIML initiatives at Fermilab to a relevant audience of specialists in beam dynamics.

The tour will take place on Friday, November 4, 2022, leaving the Palmer House around noon. The tour is all afternoon, ending at 5 p.m. Please note, the deadline to sign up for the tour is October 31, 2022 at 5:00 p.m.
