58th ICFA Advanced Beam Dynamics Workshop
on High Luminosity Circular e+e-Colliders

24-27 October 2016

Cockcroft Institute at Daresbury Laboratory, UK


Ranging from low-energy factories like DAFNE and BEPC, to record-luminosity machines such as Super KEKB, and the proposed high-energy future circular electron positron colliders CEPC/FCC-ee, lepton colliders have been for a long time the most widely used collider species, found all around the world.

Recently, the commissioning of Super KEKB has started, BEPC-II achieved its design luminosity, CEPC and FCC-ee have made great strides forward approaching a complete design, while accelerator-design breakthroughs combined with physics prospects have sparked a renewed interest in super tau-charm factories.

Many design challenges of e+e- colliders are shared with the ever more ambitious plans for storage ring light sources. ICFA is encouraging the global coordination of, and joint research on, factory-like circular colliders. The eeFACT2016 workshop held in Daresbury, UK, from 24 to 27 October 2016, will cover the full scope of circular lepton colliders over a wide range of energies, and address complementary physics. Topical working groups including contributions from the light-source community are foreseen.

eeFACT2016 will address all aspects of present and future e+e- factories, through plenary talks and 13 dedicated working groups covering physics landscape and motivations, design concepts, optics issues, interaction region and machine detector interface, beam-beam issues, injectors and beam injection, impedance issues and beam instabilities, emittance control, polarization, beam instrumentation and beam diagnostics, superconducting RF, other technologies, and energy efficiency.

The goals of the eeFACT16 workshop are:

  • Reviewing and documenting the state of the art in e-e+factory design.

  • Preparing plans for the commissioning of SuperKEKB and advancing contributions to the FCC,CEPC & tau-charm design efforts.

  • Fostering synergies and new collaborations across communities, in particular with the low-emittance light sources.

  • Jointly developing novel solutions to outstanding problems.

Abstract Submission

All contributions to eeFACT2016 will be managed using the JACoW Scientific Programme Management System (SPMS). Authors (including co-authors) must have both a profile and an associated account within the JACoW Repository before submitting an abstract. Those who have attended any JACoW conferences since 2005 should already have a profile and an account in the system. Only one account is needed for any JACoW conferences. 

A link for authors to login to their SPMS accounts and submit their abstracts is provided at the bottom of the page.  All submitting authors should, however, first read these guidelines before submitting their abstracts and be reminded of the important procedure that immediately follows abstract submission, which is listed below under "After Abstract Submission". 

The deadline for abstract submission is 30 September 2016

Submitting an Abstract

Abstract Title
Enter the title of the abstract, using initial capital letters only,

Presentation Type
The default for all contributions is talk.

To complete submission of an abstract, authors are required to select a classification. Invited Plenary and Summary Speakers have been assigned a separate classification. All other classifications are based on the program tracks for the Workshop. Authors are responsible for properly classifying their abstracts to ensure that, if accepted for presentation, their papers are properly placed within the conference program.

Abstract Text
Abstract text should not exceed 1200 characters. An abstract is a concise summary of a paper. It should describe the paper and include a statement of the issue, research methods, and significant findings. Abstracts should be written as one continuous paragraph. Since electronic submission over the web does not allow a simple, straightforward system to enter symbols, superscripts or subscripts, authors are requested not to use them. Also, equations and footnotes are not acceptable within the body of abstracts and will be removed by the proceedings editor. Use one or more asterisks (*, **, etc.) to indicate footnotes to be entered in the footnotes field (see below).    
Footnotes not exceeding 200 characters may be inserted in the footnote field for references to co-authors, institutions, etc. 

Funding Agency
References to funding agencies may also be included and should not exceed 200 characters.

Once the abstract text is entered, click the "Submit" button. Confirmation of submission will be sent by email. 
The next immediate step is to enter information regarding co-authors.

After Abstract Submission

Entering Co-author Information
After having "submitted" your abstract, a new window will open allowing you to enter co-authors and designate them as primary/submitting, speaker/presenter, etc. Note that when you enter co-authors, this information also goes into the SPMS, which will search to see whether a profile/account already exists for the co-author. After the abstract is submitted, primary/submitting authors may log on to their accounts at any time and edit their abstracts/co-author data, etc. 

Making Changes to Your Abstract
Once the author information is complete, clicking "Return to Abstract List," will allow you to print, edit, or withdraw the abstract. You can log in to SPMS and make changes to your abstract and author information at any time before the deadline.

Submit an abstract

Please send an email to if you have questions or difficulty on submitting your abstract.


Taxis can be taken to and from the airport to the recommended hotels and are the easiest option for transport. We are able to assist you in booking one of our consortium taxis at a special rate. The cost would be approximately £60.00 each way from Manchester International Airport and £40.00 each way from Liverpool John Lennon Airport. The workshop can arrange a number of mini-van taxis in line with common arrival times.

To make a booking, or for more information about how to get to Chester, please contact Sue Waller at

Other information on travelling to Chester can be found here.
Coach transportation between the 3 recommended hotels and the Cockcroft Institute will be provided for the duration of the workshop.  Further details and timings will be provided nearer the time.
