The workshop deals with physical phenomena induced by the interaction of high energy beams of charged and neutral particles with ordered matter such as crystal lattices and nanostructures. Topics that will be covered are listed below:

- General Properties of Radiation from Relativistic Particles

- Coherent Bremsstrahlung and Channeling Radiation

- Transition Radiation, Parametric X- Radiation, Diffraction Radiation

- Smith-Purcell Radiation

- Spontaneous and Stimulated Radiation in Channeling Undulator

- Applications of Monochromatic X- and Gamma Beams Produced at Accelerators

- Crystal-Assisted Processes

- Particle Interaction with Crystal and Nanotube, Radiation Damage

- Channeling and Dechanneling in Crystals and Nanotubes

- Growth of Crystal Lattice and Nanostructured Material

- Design and Manufacture of Channeling Structures (Deflectors, Undulators)

- Applications of Channeled Beams at High Energy Accelerators


Contributions are welcome in the above mentioned topics. The program will consist of oral presentations and sufficient time for informal discussions will be allocated.

Several successful meetings in this field have taken place in the past, such as ones held at Maratea (1986), at Protvino (1991), Aarhus (1995), Frascati (2004) and a series of biannual symposia RREPS organized by Tomsk Politechnical University since 1993. The present Workshop organized in Frascati, 2005, is a merger of a new edition of the Frascati (March 2004) "Relativistic Channeling and Related Coherent Phenomena" workshop and the RREPS-2005 symposium.

As we did earlier, we intend to publish the Proceedings as a special issue of Nuclear Instruments and Methods B. Papers should meet the standard of regular journal papers. We encourage submission of self-contained full papers for contributions and invited talks. A rigorous post conference refereeing procedure will be established.

Location of the meeting:

The place is located in Frascati (a nice town 20 km far from Rome) and we hope that the hills and vineyards will yield a fine landscape for the scientific discussions.

Call for Contributions at the Workshop:

Contributions are welcome in the above mentioned topics. About 30 oral presentations, including several invited talks are foreseen. Abstracts, one page in A4 format, are due on May 31, 2005. To submit an abstract you are invited to send it as an attachment by e-mail to A selection based on abstracts will be made by the organizing committee.


We agreed with the Hotel Villa Campitelli that they will hold a number of rooms for the period of the Workshop. You should make your reservation as soon as possible (we advise you to do it not later than May 1, 2005) using the Hotel’s website and inserting in the field “Notes” the following quotation: RC2005.
