The EuPRAXIA Preparatory Phase (EuPRAXIA_PP) projectwill hold its 2024 Annual Meeting  at the Hermitage Hotel in Elba, Biodola bay, Italyfrom Monday 23 to Friday 27 September 2024.

Fee Payment Dead-Line: July 31st, 2024

EuPRAXIA is the first European project that develops a dedicated particle accelerator research infrastructure based on novel plasma acceleration concepts driven by innovative laser and linac technologies

EuPRAXIA-PP is a project designed to develop the organizational, legal, financial and technological aspects of the EuPRAXIA infrastructure, following the recommendations of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI), including the choice of the second EuPRAXIA Pillar (Laser Driven Plasma Acceleration). To this end activities and recent results of the different EuPRAXIA_PP Work Packages will be presented and discussed during the first 3 days of the workshop, from Monday 23 to Wednesday 25. At the opening of every morning sessions we will also foresee Invited Talks by Relevant Guest Scientists.

Two special one day satellite workshops will be devoted to the future upgrade of the EuPRAXIA@SPARC_LAB facility on Thursday 26 and to the EuPRAXIA Outreach on Friday 27. Both were foreseen as Milestones of the EuPRAXIA_PP project. 

The satellite workshop on “EuPRAXIA@SPARC_LAB machine upgrade and additional beam lines“ [chaired by C. Vaccarezza & R. Pompili] is aiming to gather input from the Advanced Accelerator Community ad their Users to propose future updates and integrations of the facility and further extend the framework of collaborations and/or in-kind contributions to to the Italian EuPRAXIA pillar (Beam Driven Plasma Acceleration).

The satellite workshop “EuPRAXIA Outreach" [chaired by B. Cros & A. Mostacci] is aiming  to bring together several communities, including advanced accelerator physicists, experts in linear accelerators, users of particle beams for fundamental physics, laser developers, laser plasma physicists, to discuss the relevance of the EuPRAXIA design for their field and provide additional input to enlarge the scope of facility.

In addition on Wednesday 25 afternoon the “EuPRAXIA Collaboration Board” (CB) is foreseen.

Participation in presence is highly recommended, only the satellite workshop “EuPRAXIA Outreach” will be offered in hybrid mode. Remote connection might be offered exceptionally for the rest of the workshop.  

Plenary sessions only are foreseen for the entire week.

We expect a lively technical and scientific discussions about the EuPRAXIA project, including related topics such as collaboration with industry, sustainability, diversity, legal and financial aspects, in the framework of the unique workshop setting in Elba, in a beautiful natural environment for the full week.

Participation of PhD students is also very welcome and supported by a 50% fee reduction. We believe that young scientist will get a unique experience of an insight view  of the many important and challenging founding aspects of EuPRAXIA as a nascent international project, in addition to the foreseen scientific reports on advanced accelerator topics. 

Please remeber to use the updated template for your contributions/slides.
