This Introductory CAS Course represents the core teaching of all CAS courses and also represents the ideal opportunity to be introduced into the field of particle accelerators. This course will be of interest to staff and students from laboratories and universities, as well as companies manufacturing accelerator equipment. The course will focus on various aspects of beam dynamics and will provide an introduction to the underlying accelerator systems. Key topics will be consolidated through a series of discussion sessions and tutorials, while topical seminars will complete the program.

Due to the large number of students during the past issues of this course we have decided to hold this course now every year in autumn instead of the two-yearly rhythm before. The number of students will be limited to about 80 students based on a first come first served principle.

Here we present a small collection of photos taken during the course. Every student has been asked before the course to sign an "acceptance form", in which the student agrees that eventual photos might be published on the the CAS website. Any further use of these photos in other social media is out of the control by the CAS team and is not authorized by the CAS.
Nevertheless if a student or teacher finds a certain picture inappropriate, he should contact the CAS team and we will remove the picture immediately.
