The Organisation Team

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to attend the 16th International Conference on RF Superconductivity, SRF 2013, to take place on September 22-27, 2013 in Cité Internationale Universitaire, downtown Paris, France. Please note this important conference in your calendar and bookmark the conference website.

RF superconductivity is now the key technology of many accelerators for particle physics, nuclear physics and, increasingly, light sources. SRF 2013 will cover the latest advances in the science, technology, and applications of superconducting RF. The program will consist of invited review talks, poster sessions and “hot-topic” discussion sessions (and also our traditional boat tour, trademark of this conference). An industrial exhibition will also take place during the conference.

We will continue the tradition of providing a vivid forum for SRF scientists, engineers, students and industrial partners to present and discuss the latest developments in the science and technology of superconducting RF for particle accelerators.

Special tutorials will be held from Sept. 19-21 in GANIL, Caen. These are designed to provide an in-depth overview of SRF related subjects for scientists and engineers new to the field. It will also give the attendees a unique opportunity of visiting the GANIL accelerator facilities, especially the Spiral2 linac which will be under assembly at this time.

The proceedings will be published through JACoW. Only contributions presented as a talk or in the poster sessions will be included in the proceedings.

We invite you to log on to your JACOW account and activate the SRF mailing-list checkbox in your personal profile to ensure that you will receive updates on the SRF Conference in the future.
