RF for Accelerators, 22 March - 4 April 2020, Kaunas, Lithuania

This course will mainly be of interest to staff in accelerator laboratories, university departments or companies involved in producing RF equipment for accelerators. The course will include a review of the RF technology presently used in the field of particle accelerators as well as a recapitulation of the theoretical fundamentals.

Different RF equipment and RF technologies will be discussed along with their practical applications for various types of accelerators. Dedicated "hands-on" afternoon courses  and seminars will complete the programme.

Due to the afternoon courses the maximum number of participants will be limited. The principle of "first come first served" will be applied.

There will be a limited number of grants available for this school.  These will be awarded to applicants who have difficulty in finding funding (rather than on merit) and who would otherwise be unable to attend the school. The grants will be distributed equally throughout all nationalities. The grant covers board, lodging and all social events but does NOT cover travel expenses.
(Only one registration is allowed, if you register as a standard participant, your registration for funding grant requests will be automatically removed)

Whether or not you need a visa depends on your nationality and the country in which the school will be held. If you are not sure that you have the right to travel to the country in question, we suggest that you contact an embassy of your country of nationality, or a similar authority.

If you are selected and need a VISA, please contact ASAP the CAS Secretariat (Accelerator.school@cern.ch), who will give you the contact email address of our local organizer in order to receive the invitation letter.

Shuttles will be organised for flights arriving between 10 AM and 06 PM and for flights leaving on the departure day after 10 AM.
