The 9th Workshop in this series will further the goal of providing a Forum for new initiatives in innovative thin films and related technology to advance future generations of superconducting RF accelerators. Present superconducting RF accelerator technology is based on predominately bulk niobium, for which the state of the art in performance is reaching the theoretical limit. Thin film technology offers the prospect of considerable savings in fabrication costs and opens the way with innovative technologies to the use of alternative superconducting materials with enhanced intrinsic properties such as critical temperature and critical field. Intensive and coordinated R&D effort is of decisive importance for the scientific community.

The primary aim of the workshop is to support this initiative by providing an opportunity to bring together individuals and institutions working in this effort and infusing the expertise of specialists from related disciplines (superconductivity, plasma physics, material science, nanotechnology, RF engineering, and industry). Reports on work from each participation group and extensive discussions on existing problems, new ideas, and programs for the future constitute the primary focus of the program.

This edition will be held virtually. It supplements the next in-person edition to be held at the Lab and is postponed to September 2022.
