The Plasma Wakefield Accelerator Steering Committee (PWASC) is a national committee comprising representatives from university groups, the Accelerator Science Institutes, and national facilities. Its over-arching mission is to develop of a coherent strategy for the advancement of plasma-based particle acceleration in the UK.
To this end the PWASC is developing a detailed roadmap of the research activity of the UK in this area. The objectives of this first Community Meeting are to present a draft of this roadmap, to receive feedback on it, and to identify topics for potential interdisciplinary and collaborative research.
The meeting will be of interest to those working on the development or applications of both conventional and plasma accelerators.
The meeting programme is available at: http://pwasc.org.uk/community-meetings A copy of the draft roadmap will be available at the same website in early January 2018.
Lunch and coffee will be provided.
