The workshop is organized in a way that as much time as possible is given to discussions. Many talks will be plenary, in order to allow different groups in the accelerators community to share their work and ideas, and possibly find synergy of intents. Some time will be dedicated to working groups, and the groups will eventually report in plenary session.

The workshop will focus on the following topics:

* Linear and nonlinear particle dynamics in storage rings for colliders and light sources

* Collective effects in storage rings and in linacs for free electron lasers

* Design concepts and design tools for synchrotron light sources, free electron lasers and Compton/Thomson light sources.

* Complementarity of synchrotron light sources and free electron lasers: timing, energy and spectral operational modes.
