The IRUVX-PP consortium invites you to the 1st IRUVX-PP Annual Meeting from 9th -13th March 2009 in Trieste/Italy. Next to the sea and the centre of Trieste scientists from all over Europe will gather to discuss the state-of-the-art and to learn more about emerging developments in FEL science and technology.

The 1st IRUVX-PP Annual Meeting is divided into a public and an internal part.

10th – 11th March 2009: A bright future for European FELs (open to the interested public)
Leading scientists will present the science opportunities of the complementary facilities in Europe, including recent highlights from the FLASH facility in Hamburg and reports from the FELs currently under construction at Trieste and Stanford, USA.

11th – 13th March 2009: Internal sessions
The IRUVX-PP consortium members will discuss the first findings within their work packages and the work plan for the upcoming project year in closed sessions. The meeting will be closed on Friday by a General Assembly Meeting.

Two workshops will precede the 1st IRUVX-PP Annual Meeting:

9th March 2009: II. Timing and Synchronization workshop
The design and operation of a 10fs stable optical timing and synchronization system for FELs has been shown to be very challenging. The 2nd Workshop on that topic will focus on component engineering and global implementation over large scale.

10th March 2009: Workshop on "Frontiers of FEL Technology"
FEL machine physicists and beamline scientists are invited to discuss forefront developments in common technical areas for enhanced performance and efficient use of free electron lasers.

IRUVX-PP is the EU project preparing the foundation of the EuroFEL Consortium of national free electron laser facilities (initially known as the IRUVX-FEL consortium) and is one of the 35 projects of the first European roadmap for new, large-scale Research Infrastructures, the so-called ESFRI roadmap 2006.
