27 November 2003.  Some changes are being made to this Web in preparation for its move to a new location  maintained by the new Panel Chairman:

7 November 2003.  The Lepton Colliders DataBase is created by the High Luminosity e+e- Colliders working group.

18 August 2003. 

·         At its meeting on 15 August 2003 at Fermilab, ICFA approved three proposals for ICFA Advanced Beam Dynamics Workshops in 2004.   These are numbers 31-33 in the series and are listed on the home page.   Further details of these workshops will be available in due course.  

22 July 2003. 

·         ICFA has approved a new member of the Panel, Dr Jie Gao of LAL, Orsay, France. 

10 June 2003. 

·         The Working Group on Future Light Sources has a new Web page.  Please see, in particular, the obituary of Jean-Louis Laclare, a founding member of the ICFA Beam Dynamics Panel.  

1 May 2003. 

·         The next meeting of the ICFA Beam Dynamics Panel will be held during the PAC2003 conference on Tuesday, May 13, 2003, 5:30 - 7:30 pmSenate Suite, Hilton Hotel, Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.  The meeting will be chaired by Dr Weiren Chou.

31 March 2003. 

·         The Web page for the 30th ICFA Advanced Beam Dynamics Workshop on High Luminosity e+e- Collisions is now on line. 

20 March 2003

26 November 2002. 

·         The Proceedings of the 20th ICFA Advanced Beam Dynamics Workshop on High Intensity and High Brightness Hadron Beams, are now available from the American Institute of Physics.

22 November 2002. 

·         The Proceedings of the 18th Advanced ICFA Beam Dynamics Workshop, Quantum Aspects of Beam Physics are now available from World Scientific publishers.

29 October 2002. 

·         Our working group on High Luminosity e+ e- Colliders has a new home page.

11 October 2002


26 September 2002. 

·         The Web proceedings (transparencies and other material) for the 26th ICFA Advanced  Beam Dynamics Workshop: Nanometre-Size Colliding Beams are now available on the workshop Web page.  It is worth remembering that the same is true for many other past workshops in the ICFA Advanced Beam Dynamics Series.  These valuable resources are all accessible from the Panel's home page.

5 August 2002

27 June 2002. 

·         Yoshihiro Funakoshi of KEK has resigned as chairman of the Panel's working group on Future High Luminosity e+e- Colliders.  The new chairman is Caterina Biscari of  LNF-INFN.

21 June 2002. 

·         The latest newsletter, No. 27, is now available.  It contains important information about changes in our editorial methods.  Most notably, contributions in LaTeX will no longer be accepted.

3 June 2002. 

·         We have a new poster encouraging people to visit our home page and sign up for the new mailing list for the newsletter.  Please help the work of the panel by downloading it, printing it (preferably A3 or larger and in colour) and displaying it in your institution.

28 May 2002. 

·         The next meeting of the Beam Dynamics Panel will take place on 4 June 2002 at the EPAC2002 conference in Paris.  The outline agenda is here
