Workshops & Conferences: TRIUMF Hosts the 2009 ARW
Participants from 15 countries (Canada inclusive) attended the Accelerator Reliability Workshop (ARW) hosted by TRIUMF January 26 – 30. Violeta Toma, Chair of the ARW, welcomed the 85 registrants from accelerator labs, engineering corporations, universities and TRIUMF as she shared the Committee’s motivation to create a valuable experience for all. In the words of Lia Merminga, TRIUMF’s Head of the Accelerator Division, “productivity largely depends on reliability.” As sophisticated frontier machines, accelerators are composed of complex systems and many components. Optimizing their reliability is an art form, and this workshop brought together some of the leading 'artists' and their brethren. Originally initiated in 2002, the first ARW was organized by ESRF in Grenoble, France. This year TRIUMF took the lead and hosted the second workshop inviting members of the international accelerator community to Canada for a five day session in Vancouver, BC.
