The ICFA Mini-Workshop on Impedances and Beam Instabilities in Particle Accelerators will be held in Benevento (Italy) from  September 19 to 22, 2017.

The workshop continues the tradition of dedicated conferences on beam coupling impedances, initiated with the 2014 ICFA mini-Workshop on “Electromagnetic Wake Fields and Impedances in Particle Accelerators” held in Erice, organized by Vittorio Vaccaro, Maria Rosaria Masullo (INFN Naples) and Elias Métral (CERN). The aim of the 2017 edition is to present an up-to-date review of the subject, widening its scope to include recent advances on beam instabilities and electron clouds.

The workshop will be hosted by the University of Sannio at Benevento, under the auspices of INFN, SIF and CERN. Benevento is a world heritage city in Southern Italy, where you will find remarkable monuments and fine pieces of arts, in a unique cultural and natural environment. Benevento is easily reached (two hours from Rome by train, one hour from Naples airport, by bus). The conference venue is in the heart of the city centre, at short walking distance from all attractions, hotels and restaurants.

Registrations will be open from 1 March to 31 May 2017. Abstracts can be submitted until 30 April, 2017, through the INFN Indico page:
