Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the organising committee, we are pleased to welcome you to Barcelona, Spain, for the Low Level RF Workshop 2017.

Low Level RF Systems are an essential part of the RF systems of accelerators, controlling the RF structures and their power sources in order to maintain the beam accelerating voltage in ultimate levels of stability. The goal of the LLRF2017 workshops is to bring together worldwide experts in the field in order to share experiences, present status of work and discuss developments and prospects of the field.


This is the eighth workshop in LLRF and we hope to achieve the same level of success than past editions (Jefferson Lab, CERN, ORNL, KEK, DESY, SLAC/LBL and SSRF). The specialized topics covered during the oral presentations and the dedicated time to open discussions make this conference ideal from experts willing to share their ideas/experiences to beginners willing to learn from their experiences. The workshop program will also include tutorials on selected topics as well as a poster session and a visit to the ALBA Synchrotron Facility.


The workshop will be held from 16th to 19th of October 2017, at the Hotel Diagonal Zero, on Barcelona Beach Promenade, surrounded by a wide offer of restaurants and entertainment, just 20 minutes metro ride from the city center, where everybody can enjoy the cultural heritage of this cosmopolitan city and the balanced contrast of modern and traditional life.

We look forward to welcoming you to Barcelona.
