• Joint sub-WG on positron acceleration (PAC); WG8 coordinators: Sebastien Corde (LOA), Spencer Gessner (CERN)


• Charge to the working groups:

• Identify  physics programme 

• Identify scientific objectives and challenges of advanced accelerators

• Identify an Advanced Accelerator Project (medium/long term)

 • Identify  required high priority R&D, with possibly the construction of a test facility

• Identify partners and cost of R&D


• Detailed charge:

• Identify parameters/elements necessary for the scheme

• Determine to what extend they have been proved and demonstrated

• Evaluate likelihood and timescales for testing/proving solutions

• Identify key experiments to be performed

• Identify existing or new facilities to perform key experiments

• Identify realistic time scales

• Identify panorama, what is in the making?
