Following difficult years of pandemics, the Superconducting Magnet Test Facility Workshop (SMTF) is back! I would like to announce that the next workshop is being organised and proposed for spring 2023.

For this new edition, we would like to propose a joint event with the Instrumentation and Diagnostics for Superconducting Magnets Workshop (IDSM), which had been initiated in 2019 by M. Marchevsky and G. Willering. The two workshops will be held close to INFN, University of Salerno (IT).

At this occasion, we propose to enlarge our activity with an online training with a series of 20 lectures on Superconducting Magnet test stands, Magnet protections and Diagnostics given by speakers from worldwide laboratories (BNL, CEA, CERN, EPFL, FNAL, HNINP, LBNL, Tampere). The lectures will be given from May the 30th to June the 12th via Zoom. We hope to see many of you joining!


We will soon follow up with the details of the program, as well as a dedicated web page containing useful information, coming from the hosting institute.
