Last week, Cosylab hosted the third AVA topical workshop on ‘Machine-Experiment Interface’ focused on efficient diagnostics integration in an accelerator and how the readout from monitors can be linked to lattice design codes via online control systems.

The event featured talks by research leaders Lajos Bojtar from CERN and Ralph Steinhagen from GSI and also offered an opportunity to early stage researchers to present their work and panel discussions.

The project AVA (Accelerators Validating Antimatter physics) is an Innovative Training Network within the H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions. The project will enable an interdisciplinary and cross-sector program on antimatter research.

The network comprises a lot of the European expertise in this research area. It joins 5 universities, 8 national and international research centers with 13 partners from industry.
