The workshop is part of the XXV Elettra Users Meeting and aims at bringing together scientists to debate the perspectives and challenges for next generation storage rings, sources and photon transport optics. Special emphasis will be placed on design solutions that can serve best the scientific community by providing brightness, coherence and variable pulse-lengths. The workshop will be organized in the following sessions:

  1. Next Generation Storage Rings (NGSR)
  2. Insertion devices for NGSRs
  3. Photon transport optics and enhanced beamline performance at NGSRs

The topics that will be discussed at the workshop are in response to the issues raised by the ongoing and planned upgrades of existing synchrotron facilities worldwide. Such upgrades are expected to add new experimental capabilities for a wide range of scientific communities from academy and industry.
