  • Review present/past attainable slow extraction spill performance and bottlenecks, in terms of losses and spill harmonic content.

  • Recall theoretical limitations on loss levels and harmonic content, and dependence on machine configuration etc.

  • Follow up from 1st SE WS in GSI

  • Get input from clients (physicists, medical users, radioprotection, ...) on constraints (detector pile-up, impact of harmonic content, dose stability requirements, impact of beam loss, ...).

  • Look forward to future requirements, and implications for spill quality and loss control.

  • Propose and discuss potential mitigation measures and new technologies or accelerator physics developments for improvement.

  • Identify promising research threads and opportunities for synergy between laboratories, including experimental programmes

  • Find ways to build collaboration on the engineering challenges and solutions

  • Furthering education and institutional knowledge retention concerning slow extraction techniques, technologies and limitations.
