Title OPAC - optimizing accelerators through international collaboration
Abstract The optimization of the performance of any particle accelerator critically depends on an in-depth understanding of the beam dynamics in the machine and the availability of simulation tools to study and continuously improve all accelerator components. It also requires a complete set of beam diagnostics methods to monitor all important machine and beam parameters with high precision and a powerful control and data acquisition system. Within the oPAC project all these aspects will be closely linked with the aim to optimize the performance of present and future accelerators that lie at the heart of many research infrastructures. The project brings together 22 institutions from around the world. With a project budget of 6 M€, it is one of the largest research and training networks ever funded by the EC. This contribution gives an overview of the network's broad research program and summarizes the training events that will be organized by the consortium within the next 4 years.
