Asian School on Superconductivity and Cryogenics for Accelerators
December 10-17, 2017

Welcome to the Asian School on Superconductivity and Cryogenics for Accelerators (ASSCA)!

This specified school is intended to provide a unique opportunity of hands-on training and lectures on superconductivity and cryogenics planned and operated by Asian people for Asian people, and held at the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK), Japan, which can offer the hands-on training environment and the lecturers on superconducting magnets, cavities and cryogenics for accelerators.

High energy physics through accelerators is the biggest promoter of Superconductivity and Cryogenics. Today, we are not able to think of high power accelerators like LHC and ILC without superconducting magnets and cavities. Many such accelerator programmes with superconducting cavities and magnets have been initiated in Asian countries. The present Asian School on Superconductivity & Cryogenics for Accelerators (ASSCA) along with hands-on training to train young researchers and students is on right time and at the right place.

My sincere thanks to KEK, Japan and ACFA to support this school. I firmly believe that the school with hands-on training will be very effective and fruitful.
