NA-PAC2016 is in Chicago from Oct. 9-14. This will be an excellent opportunity for Fermilab personnel to present their work and learn from others. While there are many topical workshops and specific-focus conferences in the US, NA-PAC is the only conference that covers all kinds of accelerators and everything related to them. It is also unique in coverage of the engineering and technology progress, in representation of junior accelerator personnel, and in tutorials and short IEEE courses. Registration is now… More »

Speaker: Silvia Zorzetti, University of Pisa Date: Wednesday 20 April 2016, 11:00AM Location: Sunrise (WH11NE) Title: PACMAN and CMS Level-1 Tracking Trigger Abstract: PACMAN is an innovative Marie Curie doctoral training program, hosted by CERN and supported by the European Union. The technical goal is to develop high accuracy alignment methods and tools to integrate the main components of the future generation of accelerators. The method will be validated on CLIC components, a proposed Compact Linear Collider currently studied at… More »

From Silicon Republic, April 8, 2016: Researchers in the United States, including Fermilab researchers, and CERN have teamed up to produce 20 new accelerator magnets, which, when put together into the next LHC in 2026, will up its power by a factor of ten.
