6.2 Fixed Field Alternating Gradient Workshop, FFA2019

CONTACT: Andreas Adelmann, Chair of FFA2019

The latest in the series of annual workshops devoted to the study of FFAs will be hosted by the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland from November 19th to 22nd 2019. The workshop will provide an opportunity to hear about operational discoveries on the existing FFA machines in Japan, progress in construction and commissioning of the FFA sections of the new CBETA project in the U.S.A. and the latest in theoretical studies being carried out in laboratories and universities around the world. As many aspects as possible of FFAs will be addressed over the period of the workshop, from applications and modelling codes through to magnets, rf and proposals for future FFA projects. Depending on the program and time available, we hope to include a session on the two main codes used to model FFAs - Zgoubi and OPAL - as well as a tour of the accelerator facilities at PSI.

Further details will be available on the workshop website https://indico.psi.ch/event/7313/.
