Advanced Accelerator Concepts - Eighth Workshop: Baltimore, Maryland, 6-11 July 1998: Eighth Workshop: Baltimore, Maryland, 6-11 July 1998

The Advanced Accelerator Concepts Workshop is the premier forum for cross-disciplinary discussions on various aspects of advanced accelerator and beam physics/technology concepts. A wide range of applications is covered from high energy colliders to synchrotron radiation sources. Topics discussed include new methods of particle acceleration to high energies, techniques for production of ultrahigh gradient electromagnetic fields in the laboratory, diagnostics and control of particle/photon beams in ultrashort dimensions and ultrafast time scales, and various laser, RF, and beam sources.
