Accelerator Science and Technology
- R. Aleksan ()
- F. Zimmermann (Scientific Secretary)
The aim of this session is to carry out an overview of the technical status of the main accelerator projects and related R&D needed in order to match the physics objectives in particle physics. The on-going activities, including main R&D achievements, as well as remaining critical issues will be discussed. In particular, the issue of the projects readiness for construction will be addressed and possible technically-driven schedules (i.e. when could the project be launched and how long would the construction last) will be discussed on purely technical grounds, even though the estimated cost of the projects will be presented whenever possible.
For the very long term, exploratory accelerator R&D that might extend the current frontiers of reachable energy and intensity will also be discussed.
