ICFA Beam Dynamics Mini Workshop on
Low Emittance Rings 2011

The goal of the workshop is to bring together experts from the scientific communities working on low emittance lepton rings. This includes damping rings, test facilities for linear colliders, B-factories and electron storage rings. The theme will be common beam dynamics and technology challenges for producing and controlling ultra-low emittance beams and the participants will benefit from the experience of colleagues who have designed, commissioned and operated such rings. This is the second in a series of workshops initiated in 2010 (http://ler2010.web.cern.ch), by the joint CLIC/ILC working group on damping rings. During the 1st workshop and subsequent discussions, it was found that the state of the art in the design of accelerator systems in X-ray storage rings approaches the goals of linear collider damping rings and future e+/e- circular collider upgrade projects. This workshop specifically targets the strengthening of interactions within the low emittance ring community by forming a LOWεRING collaboration network.

Workshop sessions will include:

Low emittance optics design and tuning

Collective Effects and beam instabilities Low emittance Ring Technology

Proposals for contributions to the workshop should be addressed to one of the organizers or the chairman of the Scientific Program Committee, Dr. Hermann Schmickler (Hermann.Schmickler@cern.ch).
