8th Low Emittance Rings Workshop (New Dates!)

26 October @ 12:30 - 30 October @ 18:00

The 8th Low Emittance Rings Workshop, supported by the ARIES project, should have been held in Frascati, INFN-LNF in March 2020 but, due to the Covid-19 desease emergency, it has been postponed in October 2020 from 26 to 30. 

The Workshop will be held remotely, both for speakers and participants.

The connection will be provided by the Cisco Webex platform.


A technical rehearsal will take place on Monday 19 October 2020 from 1 pm to 2 pm – Rome Local Time and from 5 pm to 6 pm – Rome Local Time. (feel free to choose your preferred time slot)

Anyone who wishes to join the virtual meeting for the technical rehearsal on 19 October is welcome!

The Cisco Webex link to join the Virtual Workshop Room will be sent by email to all registrants in due time.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together experts from the scientific communities working on low emittance lepton rings. The workshop is sponsored by the RULE network under the ARIES European project and includes light source storage rings, linear collider damping rings and future e+/e- circular colliders.

The theme will be 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.

Workshop sessions will include:
‐ Low Emittance optics design and tuning (LERD)
– Collective Effects and beam instabilities (IICE)
– Low Emittance Ring Technology (LERT)

Students are encouraged to participate. 

The programme will be organised by the Scientific Programme Committe:

Maher Attal, SESAME
Ryutaro Nagaoka, SOLEIL

Riccardo Bartolini, DESY
Yannis Papaphilippou, CERN – Chair

Gabriele Benedetti, ALBA
Qing Qin, IHEP
