This year's HGS-HIRe lecture week on accelerator physics and technology addressed the topic "Intensity limitations in ion beams"
with focus on FAIR accelerators and LHC upgrades. Ingo Hofmann (GSI-FAIR), Elias Metral (CERN) and Giovanni Rumolo (CERN) contributed
the corresponding lectures and tutorial material with particular emphasis on physical aspects like beam dynamics, space charge,
impedances, lifetimes, etc., as well as technical 'remedies' like collimators, feedback systems, automatic (AI) machine setting.
All participants made use of this nice opportunity to meet, discuss with and learn a lot from these experts and, last but not least,
to enjoy a couple of nice summer's evenings in the pleasant atmosphere of the venue in Laubach.
