26th Advanced ICFA Beam Dynamics Workshop on Nanometre-Size Colliding Beams
Lausanne, Switzerland, September 2-6, 2002

Accelerators have produced high-energy particle beams with sizes as small as 70 nm and with 500 nm beams in stable collision. These "nanobeams" impose stringent tolerances on the magnetic focusing and the stability of the accelerator. Future linear colliders foresee colliding high-energy particle beams with vertical spot sizes down to the 1 nm level. For the production and control of these beams many new challenges must be met.
The ICFA Workshop on Nanometre-Size Beams will look at:
The workshop is addressed to:
The workshop should inspire a lively exchange of advanced ideas and concepts between the scientists involved in the different areas of research. The following goals should guide the workshop:
Mini-workshop on measurement of beam energy in linear colliders:
A parallel session will be devoted to the precise measurement of the beam energy in linear colliders, based on the experience in existing and past accelerators.
Additional details on the scientific program will be announced on the Nanobeam web site:

The workshop will take place on the campus of the University of Lausanne (UNIL) and the Swiss Federal Insitute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL). Lausanne is reached by car or train in less than 40 minutes from the international airport in Geneva. The university campus is within easy reach of the city center and is located directly on the beautiful Lake Geneva with a magnificent view on the Swiss Alps. Detailed information is posted here.
A number of hotel rooms in different categories have been reserved. A list is posted on the web site. The workshop participants should contact the hotels on an individual basis. We strongly recommend reserving a hotel room as soon as possible. Lausanne is a busy city and hotels can become fully booked quickly.
