All contributions presented at the conference are organised in sessions allocated in the programme.
A session is made of contributions on closely related topics. At the time of abstract submission the authors are asked to declare the main topic of their contribution by choosing a Main Classification (MC) and related Sub Classification (SC). The details of MCs and SCs are presented in this page.
Coordinators: Oliver Boine-Frankenheim (TU-Darmstadt) and Jie Gao (IHEP)
Description: MC1 covers accelerators (e.g. synchrotrons , linacs , ERLs) and storage rings providing colliding beams of hadrons or leptons for particle and nuclear physics, including the associated Machine Detector Interface (MDI) region. This includes operating experience and performance limitations, upgrade plans, accelerator physics and technology issues specific to colliders and the design and R&D for future projects. MC1 also includes accelerator-based fixed target machines, as discussed in Beyond Colliders or similar efforts in Particle and Nuclear Physics.

Coordinators: Sara Casalbuoni (Eu-XFEL) and Mark Boland (CLS)
Description: MC2 covers photon sources (synchrotron light sources, ERLs, FELs, laser systems, other free electron sources such as THz sources, Compton sources, etc ) and electron accelerators (linear, circular, recirculating, etc.). It includes insertion devices such as planar and helical field undulators. Associated accelerator systems, such as injectors, booster synchrotrons, photon beam lines and photon beam line components can also be proposed for this Session. Papers presented can be project descriptions or cover individual aspects of photon sources and electron accelerators. Both theoretical and experimental results are solicited.

Coordinators: Victor Malka (Weizmann IoS) and Evgenya Simakov (LANL)
Description: MC3 covers (i) novel and unconventional sources of particles, including electrons and protons, neutrons, ions, and secondary particles and antiparticles; and (ii) new concepts of accelerating techniques which may overcome the present limitations of size and/or cost or which give access to very new beam characteristics (e.g. plasma accelerators, ultra high gradient vacuum accelerators). Novel here refers to technologies or parameters that are not yet widely used in operation.

Coordinators: Mohammad Eshraqi (ESS) and Yoichi Sato (KEK)
Description: MC4 covers design, development, construction, commissioning, operation and upgrades of low, medium and high energy hadron accelerators, excluding hadron colliders. This includes ion sources, electrostatic accelerators, proton and ion linear accelerators, proton and ion synchrotrons, radioactive beam facilities, antiproton accumulators and collectors, ion accumulator and storage rings, cyclotrons, synchrocyclotrons, FFAs and any other similar machines. Both low and high intensity machines are covered, as are all relevant aspects of high intensity fixed target accelerators such as proton or light ions drivers for neutron sources, neutrino factories, etc.
Sub-classifications associated with MC04:
Coordinators: Sven Reiche (PSI) and Seunghwan Shin (PosTech)
Description: MC5 covers general aspects of electro magnetic interactions of charged particle beams in accelerators and storage rings. This includes linear and non linear beam optics, modeling of externally applied or beam generated electro magnetic fields, as well as theory, observations and simulations of single particle dynamics and collective effects, both coherent and incoherent. The emphasis is on deepening the understanding of fundamental processes or limitations governing beam dynamics and uncovering possible new mechanisms relevant to accelerator design and performance, independent of technological or project specific aspects, including Machine Learning techniques.

Coordinators: Adriana Rossi (CERN) and Jui-Che Huang (NSRRC)
Description: MC6 covers measurement and control of the beam properties in particle accelerators including beam diagnostics and instrumentation, beam feedback systems, low level rf controls, timing and synchronization schemes and laser based instrumentation for all types of accelerators including those for medical applications. Included also are contributions on accelerator control systems, online modeling and applications control software, as well as operational aspects of modern accelerators such as alignment and surveying methods, machine protection systems, radiation protection and monitoring and issues pertaining to reliability, and operability and applicable Machine Learning modalities.
Sub-classifications associated with MC06:
Coordinators: Marie Helene Moscatello (CEA) and Georg Hoffstaetter (Cornell Univ.)
Description: MC7 covers design, construction, testing and performance of accelerator components or subsystems, with emphasis on technological aspects and methods. It includes radio frequency cavities and systems, magnets, vacuum, cryogenics, power supplies, collimation and targetry/dumps, timing, lasers, and other accelerator components and subsystems. Advanced technologies for accelerator component manufacture and technology specific sustainability are included. Contributions with emphasis on achieving beam performance specific to an accelerator type or design should generally be classified elsewhere.

Coordinators: Nicolas Delerue (CNRS) and Sandra Biedron (UNM and Element Aero)
Description: MC8 includes contributions with emphasis on the broad applications of accelerators, the development of accelerator technologies for specific applications, aspects of technology transfer and laboratory industry relationships. This MC also includes Outreach and Commmunication for broad scientific dissemination. Also utilisation of test facilities for radiation exposure developments, as well as industrially focussed sustainability advances.
