Description
1.1 Goal of the workshop Within the last year cavity performance data has been collected on every cavity in CEBAF. This includes 242 original C20 cavities, 88 refurbished C50 cavities and 88 C100 cavities. In addition data exists on the initial performance with beam of the accelerating system. The goal of this work shop is to present the data that has been collected, develop working groups, if needed, to fully analyze the data and develop a plan for maintenance and improvement of CEBAF SRF systems and cavity performance.

        RF/SRF Path Forward 20m
        With little gradient headroom, constant vigilance is required to achieve peak performance from the RF/SRF/Cryo systems. How shall we proceed? A strawman proposal will be presented and morphed into a robust plan with institutional buy-in from all parties. Peace in the middle east and an end to world hunger will be achieved, as well , during this discussion.
