The corner stone of the TESLA superconducting linear accelerator technology is the ability to accelerate long bunch-trains at relatively high currents in pulsed operation. This workshop follows on from the first one held in February 2010. The ILC 9mA programme remains a central theme of the workshop, but in keeping with the broader issues of the challenges of operations with long bunch-trains and the spirit of the first meeting, this workshop will also focus on specific issues relevant to FLASH VUV-FEL and future European XFEL operations.
Unlike the first workshop, this meeting will be entirely plenary with no parallel working groups. The time will be divided into six thematic sessions:
- Results and analysis from the 9mA studies
- Toward future 9mA studies
- Operations modes for FLASH2
- Feedback and control of longitudinal phase space
- Machine protection for long bunch-train operation
- Beam-based feedback systems
Description of the scope of these themes can be found under Scientific Programme.
