This extended two week working meeting combines the 1st FCC-EIC Joint Workshop and the 4th FCC-ee MDI Workshop. The event will take place at CERN, from 17 to 28 October 2022 in a hybrid in-person and online participation format. The working meeting will start on Monday 17 October after lunch and will end on Friday 28 October. It will be organized with presentations in the afternoon, followed by discussions on various topics.

The first week of the event will include joint sessions on topics of common interest to FCC-ee and EIC, while the second week will focus more on FCC-ee MDI topics. This will be an opportunity to share knowledge and experience from the diverse and complementary research related to the FCC and EIC. Experience from SuperKEKB will also be presented.

The goal of the second week is to make progress on the mechanical design and integration of the interaction region layout, including the FCC-ee MDI region. Here, the constraints are tight, and the intent is to improve the current design through close interaction with engineering proposals as to how to manufacture, integrate and assemble the various components that make up the heart of the collider and detector. The aim is to develop a list of requirements for each subsystem as well as for the integration of the sub-assemblies.

  During the event the following topics will be addressed:

• IR optics, beam dynamics, collective effects
• IR magnet design, mechanical integration
• Beam losses and SR in the MDI, collimation, detector backgrounds
• Tuning, mechanical stabilization, and alignment
• Impedance, heat load evaluation
• MDI assembly concept, beam pipe model, and IR mock-up
• Vertex detector & Lumical integration study
