SuperKEKB: Challenges for the High Luminosity Frontier
Workshop on SuperKEKB commissioning and international collaboration
We are pleased to announce that the workshop “SuperKEKB : Challenges for the high luminosity frontier” will take place on 30th and 31st January, 2020, at KEK. 2019 has been a successful year devoted in large part to the phase 3 commissioning of SuperKEKB. During this two-day workshop, we will discuss different avenues to further improve the luminosity performance. The sessions will focus on beam dynamics, beam optics, beam background, collision tuning, as well as giving the hardware status and prospects for SuperKEKB. In order to help energize the workshop, following questions should be especially kept in mind through the workshop.
1) What are the causes of the beam-beam blow-up ? What are possible remediations ?
2) What are the challenges for squeezing by* further down to 0.3 mm?
3) What are the sources of injection and storage beam background? What are effective countermeasures?
4) Can we describe a path to storing 2A beams, given the current state and capabilities of the hardwares (vacuum system, collimators, abort systems, etc), while protecting the machine and the Belle II detector?
5) How can we maintain and further enforce the international collaboration?
Please note that the talks are by invitation only.
