AccNet (EUROCARD) Mini-Workshop on "High-Energy LHC”

AccNet (EUROCARD) Mini-Workshop on "High-Energy LHC”

April 27, 2011 (HE56).  A Mini-Workshop on “High-Energy LHC” was held in Villa Bighi, Malta on October 14 to 16, 2010.  The Workshop was organized by “AccNeT” (Accelerator Science Networks) in the framework of EuCARD (European Coordination for Accelerator Research & Development).  The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) currently operates at about one-half of the design beam energy (14 TeV), which is supposed to be attained in the coming few years, after the overhaul of 13 kA splices between the superconducting magnets (see HE42 and HE44).

The objective of the Mini-Workshop was to take a look at a higher-energy LHC with about 16.5 TeV beam energy and 20 T dipole magnets. During this two and a half day-workshop, presentations were given on LHC parameters, beam dynamics, operating modes, new injectors, magnets, cryogenics, collimation and vacuum systems. The presentation slides and the submitted papers can be accessed on the workshop web site using the link

Eight papers dealing with superconducting magnets and materials were selected for publication in the April issue of ESNF.
