HGS-HIRe Lecture Week on Accelerator Physics - April 2017 - Ebernburg Castle


April 24-28, 2017


Acceleration of Particles at GSI and FAIR - Chances and Challenges


Beam dynamics: Giuliano Franchetti (GSI)
Accelerators: Ralph Steinhagen (GSI)
Storage rings: Markus Steck (GSI)


Gerhard Burau (HGS-HIRe)

Thematic focus

HGS-HIRe lecture weeks are interdisciplinary events that cover experimental, theoretical and technical aspects of a particular research field together. This lecture week on accelerator physics aims for an overview of the GSI-FAIR accelerator complex to accelerate and store ions complemented by theoretical and practical aspects of the corresponding beam dynamics. It addresses the "big picture" of the GSI-FAIR accelerator complex, how it is and will be constructed, the interplay of the various acceleration components and storage ring structures together with operational aspects.

For registration please send a brief email to info[at]hgs-hire.de.

Participant Talks

Particpants are expected to give short presentations of 20-25 minutes (15-20 minutes talk + 5 minutes discussion) about topics related to the lecture week.
Each presentation will be prepared by a team of two participants, i.e. both partners help each other with the preparation of the talk including to be prepared for answering questions during the presentation. Giving the talk should be shared by both partners.
The topics of these talks are given by the lecturers (see information below).

Practical Information


Please note: The lecture week starts after your individual arrival with lunch at 12:30. Please arrive well in time. Check-in, i.e. distribution of the rooms, will be on Monday after lunch.
The scientific program starts with a welcome and introduction session on Monday afternoon and will close on Friday afternoon.

Late arrivals

If you will arrive late please contact the coordinator in advance so key pick up can be arranged.


The lecture week will be held at Ebernburg Castle >, D-55583 Bad Münster am Stein-Ebernburg.
Directions can be found here >.


Travel to the venue is on Monday, April 24, in the morning. Please arrange for individual travel to the location. You can reach the venue by public transport (train), otherwise please try to travel by car pool. If somebody want to offer a lift, he/she should send an email to info@hgs-hire.de so that we can forward the information to the other participants of the lecture week.


Accomodation is mostly in twin bed rooms.


Full board is included in the lecture week. Vegetarian meals will be available, but other special food requirements should be communicated to the coordinator in advance.

What to bring

Clothing: The lecture week will be very informal, so only casual attire is necessary. Please plan for an outdoor social activity (depending on weather).
Linen/towel/others: All rooms have linen and towels, no need to bring them. Please bring your soap and hair dryer (if needed).


Wireless internet access is available. Please bring your own laptop.


All participants contribute in a presentation. Subjects have been given in due time before the lecture week (see above). They have been proposed by the lecturers. Hence the presentation will not be on the own scientific work of the participant but is connected to the topic of the lecture week. A projector will be available. In addition a flip chart can be used. Presentation time is about 15-20 minutes + about 5 minutes discussion.


All basic expenses are covered by HGS-HIRe. You only have to pay for local expenses (drinks etc.). All meals are included.


Though this trip will not generate any costs for your supervisor or group please do not forget to file a trip request so you are covered by insurance during the lecture week. Please ask the secretary of your official supervisor at the university for the appropriate form.


Please send a brief email to info[at]hgs-hire.de for registration.
