Welcome to the Workshop on Accelerator Operations

Aug 6 - Aug 10, 2012

Kavli Auditorium

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

Menlo Park, CA

The objective of the workshop is to bring together people that operate accelerators and to help them exchange ideas about accelerator operation, organization, maintenance, documentation, software, control room layout, remote operation, and safety. It also serves the accelerator operations community as a means to establish benchmarks by facilitating comparisons of methods, efficiencies, costs, reliability, beam quality and other performance measures. In addition specialized requirements for operating refrigeration plants for super conducting accelerators, or for operating accelerators like spallation neutron sources or free electron lasers are discussed.
