"Mini Chamonix" Workshop

Europe/Zurich
Jiva Hill Park hotel

Description

The workshop will examine the possible performance improvement options available during the rest of the LHC's 2011 proton run. It will also consider the experiments' requirements and potential limitations from hardware and beam related phenomena. The principle aim to arrive at a strategy for maximizing the delivered luminosity by the end of the year. The results from, and plans for, machine development will be considered where the knowledge gained might impact the above goal.
