7th SRF Materials Workshop
July 16-17, 2012
Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility
Newport News, VA


General Information

IngotSlice.jpgThe 2012 SRF Materials Workshop (SRFMW) will take place Monday-Tuesday, July 16th and 17th at Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility ("JLab"), Newport News, VA. The workshop directly adjoins to the 5th International SRF Thin Films and Pushing the Limits Workshop (TFSRF), which will be held at the same venue from the 18th to the 20th of July. Both workshops are hosted by the JLab Institute for SRF Science and Technology, a department of the Accelerator Division. The SRFMW program has been planned to be synergistic with, but distinct from, the TFSRF program to allow our colleagues to experience the maximum benefit from both meetings.

Please remember that SRFMW is an invitation-only workshop. If you know someone who would like to attend, please submit the name to Charlie Reece ( or Lance Cooley ( before that person registers. Please also understand that much information will be presented before publication, in an incomplete state, with a candid discussion of failures or speculative ideas. Participants agree to treat all material as private and confidential for the purposes of discussion, and attendees should seek permission of the presenter to use materials. Depending on the consensus approval of the attendees, presented materials may be posted on a private website for viewing at a later date.


Important Dates

Title and abstract submission deadline: Monday, 25 June 2012
Registration deadline: Monday, 2 July 2012
Tentative agenda available: Monday, 9 July 2012
Hotel reservation deadline: none
SURA Residence Facility deadline: Saturday, 16 June 2012

Meeting Format
The SRFMW brings together U.S. R&D programs at labs and universities, SBIR and ARRA programs, and industry partners to address basic materials challenges from DOE and other projects, including ILC, Project X, FRIB, JLab 12 GeV Upgrade, and Light Source. Due to the follow-on TFSRF Workshop, some overlapping topics of the materials workshop will be deferred to the later TFSRF.

The SRFMW is not a conference where presenters show recent work exclusively! Instead, the workshop will begin by asking questions and identifying key issues. Presentations should raise or reiterate questions as well as propose avenues for future work supported by present data. The workshop wrap-up session will strive to recommend future work in a format reportable to the DOE, the Tesla Technology Collaboration, and other projects.

The meeting will take place in the Jefferson Lab CEBAF Center, room F113.
