Seventh DITANET Topical Workshop:  Beam Loss Monitoring

The 7th DITANET Topical Workshop took place at DESY, Hamburg (Germany) on 5–7th December 2011. The Workshop was devoted to the important beam diagnostics field of beam loss monitoring that is used for people and machine protection. The main scope of the event was to review novel detector developments in the applications of Beam Loss Monitoring. Aspects of detector simulation and calibration as well as practical operation were covered.   

The Workshop brought together 22 participants including both world recognized experts and young scientists and students who take their first steps in the field. Most of the participants were from Europe (CERN, DESY, Sinchrotrone Trieste, ESRF, Stockholm University, Fraunhofer Institute and Technical University Darmstadt and University of Liverpool) but there were also participants from the United States of America (SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Brookhaven National Lab) and from Russia (MEPHi).

This two and a half day Workshop included invited and contributed talks with extended discussions (17 talks), a round table discussion devoted to the interesting topics that were not covered during the previous talks and a visit to DESY Free-Electron Laser FLASH. One of the most popular themes for discussion during the Workshop concerned Cherenkov fiber detectors that become more and more popular these days. Three talks were devoted to this topic covering simulations, practical aspects of operation and obtained experience.
