invited speakers abstract submission timetable & program discussions


The scientific program of the conference will include invited presentations by the experts in the field of the “Channeling 2014” topics, selected oral presentations, and poster sessions.

Overhead, slide and video projector linked to a PC will be available. In case of PC presentation the files of the PowerPoint (or pdf) format should be loaded to the PC provided by the organizers before the session of the talk. You may bring your own computer, of course; however there will be no support for your own material.

Posters should be presented during the whole working day. The size of the display area for a poster is 80 cm in width and 100 cm in height.

>> Channeling 2014: ADVANCE PROGRAM /pdf copy - ch2014_adv-prog-preliminary.pdf/


>> Additional to both technical program presentations of the conference (invited, oral, poster) and lectures of the opening Primer and two Round Table sessions, Channeling 2014 will offer the possibility to discuss various topics during evening round tables. Namely, Channeling 2014 program includes:

@ Primer session /October 5, 15:00 - Comune Anacapri/

The lectures on large future experiments at CERN and on ELI and ITER-TOKAMAK projects
This session will be followed by the welcome party at the Villa San Michele

N.B.: Capri and Anacapri are two Comunes on the island of Capri.

@ Dedicated session on crystal simulation routines /Hotel La Residenza/

"Crystal Simulation Routines for Particle Accelerators: Comparison and Benchmarking with Experimental Data" /Chair Francesca Galluccio, INFN-Napoli/

The UA9 experiment has demonstrated that bent crystals are able to steer the beam halo safely out of a high energy particle accelerator, thus allowing to decrease the total beam losses all around the machine.
Particle tracking simulations are a very powerful predictive tool and play a fundamental role in the design of complex particle accelerators.
Dedicated crystal models have been developed to simulate the interaction of high energy charged particles with crystals and to be included in tracking codes.
Validation of these models can be performed by comparison with the experimental data of crystal exposure to beam.
Several crystal modeling routines will be presented and their predictive power will be evaluated by comparison with the experimental data taken by the UA9 collaboration at the H8 extraction line of the CERN SPS.

@ Round Table /Hotel La Residenza/

"Propagation of Ultra-Intense Laser Pulses in Plasma Channels and Related Phenomena" /Chair Danilo Giulietti, University of Pisa/

The propagation of super-intense and ultra-short laser pulses in plasmas is a main concern in several applications of the laser-plasma interactions, from ICF to HEP. During the propagation in the plasma the light beam deeply changes its parameters, inducing at the same time the relativistic regime of the electron quivering motion. These extreme conditions are suitable for the electron acceleration in high field gradient, opening to the realization of compact secondary sources of X-gamma rays. Colleagues from the major laser infrastructures and research centers (CEA, RAL, Ecole Polytechnique, PALS, … ) participating to the Round Table will consider present and future links between the different applications of such physical phenomena.
