Particle Accelerator Summer School
A week-long oPAC advanced School on Accelerator Optimization took place from 7th to 11th July 2014 at Royal Holloway University of London and was joined by around 80 delegates from across Europe. The School provided excellent opportunities for networking with colleagues from other institutions and included also a visit to the city of London.
Prof. Carsten P. Welsch, oPAC coordinator, said: “We received excellent feedback from the participants and had a fantastic atmosphere throughout the week. The large number of participants underlines that there is a growing need for similar training events and oPAC will provide many additional training opportunities in the near future.”
The School covered accelerator optimization through beam physics studies, instrumentation research and development and charged particle beam simulations at an advanced level. All aspects of accelerator optimization were presented by lecturers from universities, research centres and industry throughout the week and led to many interesting discussions between participants.
