Conference poster

Arcidosso, a medieval town in Southern Tuscany in Italy, hosted four successful international workshops on nonlinear beam dynamics and collective effects in the last decade of the past century. Tens of experts on beam dynamics in particle accelerators and mathematicians of non-linear dynamics participated. This series was successfully renovated in 2017. A new edition of the Arcidosso workshop is now organized, from the 26th to the 29th of May 2020, as an ideal continuation of the work that, 20 years ago, helped the establishment of theories, techniques and accelerator designs of current operational synchrotron light sources and linear accelerators-driven light sources.

The event' is organized by Elettra-Sincrotrone Trieste S.C.p.A. and by Comune of Arcidosso.

The workshop will review the advances made in the last decade on the manipulation, in linear and circular accelerators, of high brightness particle charged beams, as particularly related to the spectral and temporal shaping of radiation from UV to X-rays. The workshop will update its content on the basis of state-of-the-art technologies and scientific results obtained at existing accelerator facilities. Challenges and solutions, proposed or implemented, for the operation of third and fourth generation storage rings as well as radiofrequency linacs for Compton/Thomson light sources and free electron lasers, will be reviewed and discussed. Constructive interaction between communities of linear and circular accelerators will be encouraged, such as, for instance, in the investigation of a complementarity between single-pass and recirculating light sources in energy, timing and spectral operational modes.

On the 29th of May, at the end of the workshop, a seminar on "Science and Society", open to the public, in Italian, will be given at the "Theater of Unanimi" in Arcidosso.
