Eighth International Accelerator School for Linear Colliders

4 December15 December 2013
Hotel Rixos Downtown, Antalya, Turkey

Organised by the Linear Collider Collaboration and ICFA Beam Dynamics Panel

Hosted by the Institute of Accelerator Technologies of Ankara University

This school is a continuation of the series of schools started six years ago (2006 in Japan, 2007 in Italy, 2008 in the U.S., 2009 in China, 2010 in Switzerland, 2011 in the U.S. and 2012 in India). Based on the needs from the high-energy physics community, the Linear Collider Collaboration (LCC) and ICFA Beam Dynamics Panel will organise an Eighth International Accelerator School for Linear Colliders. The focus of the school will be on TeV-scale linear colliders including the International Linear Collider (ILC), the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) and other advanced colliders. The target students are graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and junior researchers from around the world. We welcome applications from physicists who are considering changing their career from experimental physics to accelerator physics. This school is adopting an in depth approach. Therefore, former students are welcome to apply if they have a compelling reason to do so. The school will be in lecture style. There will be homework assignments and a final examination, but no university credit will be offered.


  • Overview of TeV-scale future lepton colliders (ILC, CLIC and other advanced colliders)
  • Accelerator physics for sources, damping rings, ring colliders, linacs and beam delivery system
  • Accelerator technology for super conducting and warm RF, LLRF and high power RF, beam instrumentation

Important notes

  • Maximum number of students is 60.
  • Students will receive partial or full financial aid (depending on availability) for covering the expenses for attending this school, including airfare, lodging, meals, local transportation and school supplies.
  • Application qualification: graduate students, post doctoral fellows, junior researchers.
  • Former students are allowed to apply.
  • Online application only.
  • Requirements: registration form, CV, one recommendation letter.
  • Application fee: free.
  • Application deadline: September 25, 2013
    Online application
       Application is closed. Applicants will be informed if they are accepted.
