6.3 Workshop devoted to the Accelerator Tracking Code Zgoubi

CONTACT: Dan T. Abell,

A workshop devoted to the particle accelerator code Zgoubi will take place in Boulder, Colorado, USA from 26th-30th August 2019.

The particle tracking code Zgoubi evolved from a tool for modeling spectrometers in 1972 to what it is today: one of the most complete single-particle dynamics codes. Used by labs worldwide for a wide range of particle accelerator modeling tasks, Zgoubi is especially valued for studies of polarization in electron-ion colliders, as well as for studies of the complex dynamics in fixed-field accelerators (FFAs) and medical synchrotrons.

The goal of the Zgoubi Workshop is to promote an exchange of knowledge about the Zgoubi code. Presentations on important scientific applications will motivate the associated practical tutorials. Bringing together both developers and scientist users will facilitate coordinated development that will leverage expertise from both groups and result in new tools and interfaces having consistent approaches.
