Agenda Welcome and Introductions HB2008 Update Recommendations for next workshop Proposals and selection for next workshop Adjourn
HB2008 Numbers 115 Registrants 8 Students ~110 Submissions (invited + contributed) 3 Sponsors 41 tour participants
HB2008 Issues: Changes in the Workshop Scope IAC strongly encouraged to avoid dedicated sessions on topics that are covered in their own workshop series: – Beam Cooling – Electron Cloud effects IAC strongly encouraged to limit parallel sessions to a maximum of two (as opposed to three in HB2006) Impact: HB2008 is smaller than previous workshops. Is this a good thing?
HB2008 Issues: Poster Session First poster session in the HB workshop series Motivation: – It is good to have a “relief valve” for contributed abstracts – Most attendees must present a paper. With reduced scope and only two parallel sessions we wanted a way to encourage attendance beyond the invited program
HB2008 Issues: Participation Budget cuts/travel constraints at the labs: – Within US: BNL, FNAL, … – Outside US: CERN LHC Commissioning Schedule: HB2006 had 14 CERN participants, HB2008 has 7 China Earthquake: 6 participants cancelled US Visa issues: 4 participants cancelled
HB2008 Issues: Sponsorship Sponsors are very important in a small workshop like this one. We had valuable support from – Muons, Inc. – Hewlett Packard/Holman’s – Tech-X
HB2008 Special Edition of PRST-AB HB2008 authors who (in addition to publishing in the conference proceedings) wish to submit for refereed publication are encouraged to consider submission of articles to a Special Edition of the online journal Physical Review Special Topics Accelerators and Beams (PRST-AB). Accepted papers, which relate to contributions of the HB2008 workshop, will be issued in a special edition of this journal.
