The goal of the workshop is to bring together experts from the scientific communities working on low emittance lepton rings. This includes damping rings, test facilities for linear colliders, B-factories and electron storage rings. The theme will be common beam dynamics and technology challenges for producing and controlling ultra-low emittance beams and the participants will benefit from the experience of colleagues who have designed, commissioned and operated such rings. This is the second in a series of workshops initiated in 2010 (http://ler2010.web.cern.ch), by the joint CLIC/ILC working group on damping rings. During the 1st workshop and subsequent discussions, it was found that the state of the art in the design of accelerator systems in X-ray storage rings approaches the goals of linear collider damping rings and future e+/e- circular collider upgrade projects. This workshop specifically targets the strengthening of interactions within the low emittance ring community by forming a LOWεRING collaboration network. Workshop sessions will include: Low emittance optics design and tuning -Low emittance cells design -Non‐linear optimization -Minimization of vertical emittance Collective effects reduction through lattice design -Collective Effects and beam instabilities -Electron cloud effect and fast ion instability -Intrabeam Scattering -Impedances -Coherent Synchrotron Radiation Low emittance Ring Technology -Insertion devices, magnet design and alignment -Fast kicker design -RF systems -Instrumentation for low emittance -Feedback systems -Vacuum technology
