7-9 December 2010
Hilton, Evian
Europe/Zurich timezone


The LHC Beam Operation workshop will be held on 7, 8 and 9 December 2010 in the Hilton Hotel in EVIAN (74), France.

Attendance is by invitation only.


The principle aims of the workshop are to review 2010 LHC beam commissioning and beam operations experience, and to look forward to the operation of the LHC in 2011.

Issues addressed will cover: operation from injection to stable beams; beams measurements and observations versus expectations; problems encountered; the performance of software and controls; the performance of the machine protection system; and necessary improvements across the board. The readiness of the machine as a whole for operation with high stored beam energies will be discussed.

The operations plan for 2011 will be presented and discussions will address the strategies for increasing luminosity, increasing intensity and other measures that pertaining to the luminosity targets of 2011.
