6.5 ICFA mini-Workshop on Mitigation of Coherent Beam Instabilities in Particle Accelerators, MCBI2019

CONTACT: Elias Métral, Tatiana Pieloni and Giovanni Rumolo, IOC Chairs MCBI2019

Following the ICFA mini-Workshop on “Electromagnetic Wake Fields and Impedances in Particle Accelerators” held in April 2014 in Erice, Sicily, and the ICFA mini-Workshop on “Impedances and Beam Instabilities in Particle Accelerators”, held in September 2017 in Benevento, Italy, a third workshop in the series will be organised jointly between CERN and EPFL and will take place from September 23rd to 27th, 2019 in Zermatt, Switzerland.

This workshop will focus on mitigation methods for coherent beam instabilities, reviewing in detail the theories (and underlying assumptions), simulations and measurements on the one hand, and on the other hand trying to compare the different mitigation methods (e.g. with respect to other effects such as beam lifetime) to provide the simplest and most robust solutions for day-to-day operation of the machines.

Further details are available at the workshop web-site: which will be regularly updated to include the latest information as it becomes available.
