Overview

Vacuum arcs are a concern in nearly every vacuum device under electric field; consequently they are present in a very wide range of applications. Sometimes vacuum arcs form the basis for device operation, but all too often they are the primary failure mode.

Understanding the physical processes of a vacuum arc requires expertise from many disciplines – material science, surface physics, and plasma physics. Applications include high-voltage electronics, RF accelerators, electrostatic accelerators and vacuum interrupters. The purpose of this workshop series is to bring together scientists and engineers from many different disciplines and application areas to discuss the latest efforts in understanding vacuum arcs. We cover theory, simulation and experiments.

 

This  Workshop edition is hosted by the Consorzio RFX, and will run from September 16 to September 19 2019 in Padova, Italy at the Orto Botanico venue, located in the city center of Padova. Registrations will be opened on Sunday 15 afternoon at the Orto Botanico. The attendees will be welcomed during the opening reception planned for Monday 16 evening. Registrations will be opened on Sunday 15 afternoon at the Orto Botanico.

 

If you need an Invitation letter for your VISA, please, make the request as soon as possible through the Workshop Registration Form.

Login

In order to register for the conference, you have to log in to the CERN Indico system by clicking on "Registration" or "Submit abstract" on the left side menu. You will then be directed to the login page. There are four options to log in:

  • If you have already a CERN account, you can use it.
  • If your home organization participates in the eduGAIN network (there are already 400+ universities and instututions who do), you can sign in with your organization or institution account, after you selected your organization in the eduGAIN dialog box.
  • If you have a public service account such as Facebook, Google, Windows Live or Yahoo, you can use that account to log in.
  • If none of the above works (and only then), you can create a Lightweight CERN account on the CERN Account Management page. Be sure to remember the username and password, since you will need that account to submit any abstract, slides or proceedings.

If you somehow have trouble to create a CERN lightweight account or using your public service account for Indico access, please restart your browser. If that does not help, try to delete cookies, then empty the browser cache.
