What is Accelerating News?

About

Accelerating News is a quarterly online publication for the accelerator community.

ISSN: 2296-6536

The publication showcases news and results from the biggest accelerator research and development projects such as ARIES, HL-LHC, TIARA, FCC study, EuroCirCol, EUPRAXIA, EASITrain as well as interesting stories on other accelerator applications. The newsletter also collects upcoming accelerator research conferences and events.

Accelerating News is published 4 times a year, in mid March, mid June, mid September and mid December.

You can read Accelerating News via the homepage http://www.acceleratingnews.eu or by email.

History

Accelerating News evolved from the EuCARD quarterly project newsletter (see past issues), which was first published in June 2009 to a subscription list of approximately 200. Initiated by EuCARD and in collaboration with additional FP7 co-funded projects, the first edition of Accelerating News was published in April 2012 to an initial distribution list of about 800 subscribers. Currently more than 1750 members receive the quarterly issues.

    1st Issue of EuCARD Newsletter

    EuCARD: European Coordination for Accelerator Research and Development was a common venture of 37 European Accelerator Laboratories, Institutes, Universities and Industrial Partners, initiated by ESGARD, to upgrade the large European research accelerators by R&D on innovative concepts and techniques: high field superconducting magnets, superconducting RF cavities that are particularly relevant for FLASH, XFEL and SC proton linacs, two-beam acceleration, high efficiency collimation and new accelerator concepts. EuCARD ran for 4 years and was completed on 31 July 2013.

    1st issue of Accelerating News; EUROnu,TIARA, HiLumi LHC join the newsletter

    EUROnu: High Intensity Neutrino Oscillation Facility in Europe design study was prompted by the discovery of neutrino oscillations, a phenomenon showing that the neutrino changes type (or flavour) as it travels through space. The investigation of these oscillations requires new high intensity neutrino oscillation facilities. The design study reviewed the three accepted methods to realize such a neutrino facility (the so-called neutrino Superbeams, Beta Beams and Neutrino Factories) and did cost and risk assessments as well as a critical physics evaluation of these facilities. EUROnu ran for 4 years and was completed on 31 August 2012. 

    TIARA: Test Infrastructure and Accelerator Research Area aims to integrate the national and international accelerator R&D infrastructures into a single distributed European accelerator R&D facility. This will include the implementation of organisational structures to combine existing individual infrastructures, ensuring their efficient operation and upgrades, and the construction of new infrastructures as part of TIARA.
     

    HL-LHC Project: High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider. The HiLumi LHC Design Study ran as an FP7 funded project between 2011 and 2015. The project now has moved from the design study to the machine construction phase. HL-LHC will extend the LHC’s discovery potential, increasing luminosity by a factor of 10 beyond the original design value and allowing the scientific community to study new phenomena.

    EuCARD-2 joins Accelerating News

    EuCARD-2: Enhanced European Coordination for Accelerator Research & Development brought a global view to particle accelerator research, coordinating a consortium of 40 accelerator laboratories, technology institutes, universities and industry to jointly address common challenges for future generation of accelerators. By promoting complementary expertise, cross-disciplinary fertilisation and a wider sharing of knowledge and technologies throughout academia and with industry, EuCARD-2 aimed at significantly enhancing multidisciplinary R&D for European accelerators, actively contributing to the development of a European Research Area in accelerator science. EuCARD-2 ran for 4 years and was completed on 30 April 2017.

    FCC study and EuroCirCol join the newsletter

    FCC: Future Circular Collider design study explores options for accelerator projects in a global context, with emphasis on proton-proton and electron-positron high-energy frontier machines. These design studies are coupled to a vigorous accelerator R&D programme, including high-field magnets and high-gradient accelerating structures, in collaboration with national institutes, laboratories and universities worldwide.
     

    The FCC study is strongly supported by the European Circular ​Energy-Fr​ontier Collider (EuroCirCol), a H2020 project for the design and advancements of all key technologies for a post-LHC research infrastructure based on an energy-frontier 100 TeV circular proton-proton collider.  This Research and Innovation Action project submitted to call H2020-INFRADEV-1-2014-1 receives funding from the European Union’s H2020 Framework Programme under grant agreement no. 654305.

    EuPRAXIA joins Accelerating News

    EUPRAXIA: European Plasma Research Accelerator with Excellence in Applications is a proposed EU Design Study which will bridge the gap between successful proof-of-principle experiments and ground-breaking, ultra-compact accelerators for science, industry, medicine or the energy frontier. The major objective of the Eupraxia design study is the preparation of a conceptual design report for the worldwide first plasma-based accelerator at 5 GeV with industrial beam quality and two user areas.
