Mini-workshops under the auspices of the ICFA Beam Dynamics Panel

These are specialized workshops (initiated by members of the ICFA Beam Dynamics Panel or other individuals) and less formal than the full-sized Advanced Beam Dynamics Workshops requiring ICFA-Approval.  Although there is no requirement to publish proceedings, they are in fact published in many cases.  Detailed Guidelines for ICFA Mini-Workshops are found below at the bottom of this page.

Guidelines for an ICFA Mini-Workshop:

·         This is a small size workshop and more flexible. The number of participants can vary and is usually in the range 30 to 80.

·         It is sponsored by the ICFA Beam Dynamics Panel.

·         The proposal should be sent by e-mail to the Panel Chair, including workshop dates, venue, names of organizers, and a statement of its topic.

·         It needs Panel approval, which usually takes about 2 weeks.

·         There should be at least one ICFA Beam Dynamics Panel member on the organizing committee.

·         It can be by invitation only.

·         No formal proceedings are required.

·         The organizer is required to make an announcement prior to the workshop and write a summary report after the workshop for publication on the ICFA Beam Dynamics Newsletter.
