Call for abstracts

The online abstract submission for the SRF2005 Workshop is now closed as of June 15th, 2005.

Workshop site

The Workshop will be held on the Cornell University campus. Plenary sessions and tutorials will be held in the Olin Hall Auditorium (rm. 155). Parallel tutorials will be in the second floor Olin Hall Auditorium (rm. 255). Poster sessions and an industrial exhibition will be in the Willard Straight Hall Memorial Room. The workshop office (rm. 216), publication and registration office (rm. 128), and computer room (rm. 145) will be located in Olin Hall. Wireless internet access will be set up in Olin Hall.


Following the SRF2003 workshop, we decided to have tutorials for students and individuals new to the field of RF superconductivity. A special session, exclusively for tutorials, will take place in the Olin Hall Auditorium on Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with lunch break from noon till 2:00 p.m.

Plenary Sessions

Plenary sessions will be held in the Olin Hall Auditorium on Monday (all day) and in the morning on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. The morning sessions will start at 8:30 a.m. and end at approximately noon. The Monday afternoon session will start at 2:00 p.m. and end at 5:30 p.m.

Poster Sessions

Two poster sessions are scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Willard Straight Hall Memorial Room. Posters must be mounted half an hour before the poster session begins, attended through at least the major part of the session, and removed immediately after the end of each session. Workshop staff will be available prior to each poster session to assist authors.

Poster Guidelines are now available. Please read this if you are presenting a poster.

Industrial Exhibition

An industrial exhibition will be open Tuesday and Thursday during poster sessions in the Willard Straight Hall Memorial Room.
