• LHC Proton Commissioning
• Back to the idea of:
     • Machine coordinator (3-4) (Names proposed: RB,ML,RS,….
     • Commissioner in charge (7-8) – Responsible for performance
       - from all groups (GA, RA, SF, MG, JW,…) - on shift when
       there is beam
     • EIC (trainee) (7) – Responsible for technical integrity – OP –
       on shift
     • Experienced shift-leader
     • team of system commissioners, beam physics expert for the
       different phases of the commmissioning (CC, SG, JJ)
                      BDI Commissioners

             News from SLM
• The department leaders have suggested
  increasing number of fellows from the existing
  budget reduction of their pension benefits
• New Fellow and Sci. Ass. Committee (22/11).
  Deadline for requests 4/11:
  – G. Smirnov ("Effects of coulomb and nuclear elastic
    scattering relevant for LHC proton and ion beams“) –
  – F. Roncarolo – Fellow – extension by 6 months
  – E. Benedetto? – Fellow – from June 2006
• On 11/11/2005 at 11:00 visit from B. Salvant for
  a possible PhD subject.
                News from SLM
• AB review will take place on to 14-15/11
• From the SPSC:
   – Lack of protons for COMPASS in 2006 and onwards  SPSC
     encourages studies to cope with this  APC 6/10
   – Not clear yet if CNGS will take beam in 2006
   – ELENA LoI: Feasibility study: requires 4–5 FTE to produce a
     design report. A signal from the top management is needed to
     launch such a study. AD experiments to present the benefits of
     ELENA at the January meeting
    News from other meetings
  – During winter we will stay on EDF network (70 MW
    limit but 22 EJP)  Impact on LEIR  M. Batz + L.
    Rinolfi at next ABOC
  – New Computer Security policy (CNIC): Separation of
    the Office and Technical Networks  impact on the
    way we can access machine and beam data:
