The course will be of interest to staff and students from laboratories and universities who wish to learn about the various options being considered for future colliders for high-energy physics. The material presented will be at an accessible level and cover circular hadron and lepton collliders, as well as linear lepton colliders. The programme will cover the beam dynamics of the colliders presently under consideration and the associated technologies that will be needed to build them. Beam generation and machine protection issues will also be addressed.
Ten years after the last course on accelerator beam diagnostics in Dourdan (France) the CERN accelerator school will again offer such a course in 2018 – in Helsinki (Finland). This is intended be of interest to staff and students in accelerator laboratories, university departments and companies manufacturing accelerator equipment who wish to learn about beam instrumentation technologies, data treatment and accelerator performance diagnostics.
During the past years CAS has organized three editions of a basic introductory course on CERN accelerators. This very compact course lasts only for 5 days and is non-residential. The course was intended exclusively for CERN affiliates and the registration was handled by CERN internally. Due to the large success of this course it was decided to hold it from now on every year just before the summer vacation period (next course: 25-29 June 2018).
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.
