We are pleased to announce  the International Workshop on  Impedances and Beam Instabilities in Particle Accelerators, to be held in Benevento (Italy) from 18 to 22 September, 2017.  
The workshop is intended to continue the tradition of dedicated conferences on beam coupling impedances in particle accelerators, initiated with the 2014 ICFA mini-Workshop on “Electromagnetic Wake Fields and Impedances in Particle Accelerators” held in Erice (organized by Vittorio Vaccaro, Iaia Masullo and Elias Métral). The aim of the upcoming event is to provide an up-to-date review of the subject, while widening its scope to include recent advances on beam instabilities.

The workshop will be hosted by the University of Sannio at Benevento, under the auspices of INFN, SIF and CERN - and with the sponsorship of ARIES, LIU, Collimation and HL-LHC.
Benevento is a world heritage city in Southern Italy, where you will find  remarkable monuments and fine pieces of arts, in a unique cultural and natural environment. Benevento is easily reached (two hours from Rome by train, one hour from Naples airport, by bus). The conference venue is in the heart of the city center, in a short walking distance from all attractions, hotels and restaurants.

We look very much forward to welcoming you in Benevento, to contribute to a stimulating and memorable workshop!
