The 8th Low Emittance Rings Workshop, supported by the ARIES project, should have been held in Frascati, INFN-LNF in March 2020 but, due to the Covid-19 desease emergency, it has been postponed in October 2020 from 26 to 30

The Workshop will be held remotely, both for speakers and participants.

The connection will be provided by the Cisco Webex platform.


The Cisco Webex link to join the Virtual Workshop Room has been sent by email to all registrants.

During the Workshop, at Webex log in:

* switch microphone and camera off - switch them on only when presenting your talk;

* share your screen, select your presentation and go full screen mode. Unshare at the end of your talk;

* respect the time allotted to your talk (25');

* "raise hand" to ask questions during the discussion (select your name in the participants' list on Webex and click on the "hand" icon).

The goal of the workshop is to bring together experts from the scientific communities working on low emittance lepton rings. The workshop is sponsored by the RULE network under the ARIES European project and includes light source storage rings, linear collider damping rings and future e+/e- circular colliders.

The theme will be beam dynamics and technology challenges for producing and controlling ultra‐low emittance beams and the participants will benefit from the experience of colleagues who have designed, commissioned and operated such rings.

Workshop sessions will include:
Low Emittance optics design and tuning (LERD)
- Collective Effects and beam instabilities (IICE)
- Low Emittance Ring Technology (LERT)

Students are encouraged to participate. 

The programme will be organised by the Scientific Programme Committe:

Maher Attal, SESAME Ryutaro Nagaoka, SOLEIL
Riccardo Bartolini, DESY Yannis Papaphilippou, CERN - Chair
Gabriele Benedetti, ALBA Qing Qin, IHEP
Mike Borland, ANL Victor Smalyuk, BNL
Susanna Guiducci, INFN-LNF Andreas Streun, PSI
Robert Hettel, SLAC Rainer Wanzenberg, DESY
Emanuel Karantzoulis, ELETTRA Simon White, ESRF
Simon Leeman, LBNL Frank Zimmermann, CERN
Akira Mochihashi, KIT  



Proposals for contributions to the workshop could be addressed directly to the SPC Chair: ioannis.papaphilippou@cern.ch


Participants in the Workshop are invited to register via web using the online registration form.
