When entering (was: comments) footnotes in the box here below, it comes a time when the space is over and no more characters are accepted.
This may suggest that the comments area is fixed in length.
So far so good. However, when submitting we get an error of the comments area exceeding 200 chars. Strange, since the interface itself prevented any more chars to be entered.
By deleting only one char the abstract is accepted. This suggests that Indico is not counting the number of characters entered correctly.

This talk presents an overview of the history, status and perspectives of extremely high energy circular colliders. An outline will be given of the major design decisions taken so far and the evolution of different aspects of the design. As examples we use high performance particle colliders Future Circular Colliders study (FCC) and Chinese project CEPC/SppC.
This is a test abstract to help with the validation of the platform
A second test proposal
TARUMÃ is the sub-microprobe station of the CARNAÚBA beamline at Sirius/LNLS. Covering the range from 2.05 to 15keV, the probe consists of a fully-coherent monochromatic beam varying from 550 to 120nm with flux of up to 1e11ph/s/100mA after the achromatic focusing op-tics. Hence, positioning requirements span from nanometer-level errors for high-resolution experiments to fast continuous trajectories for high throughput, whereas a large flexibility is required for different sample setups and simultaneous multi-technique X-ray analyses, including tomography. To achieve this, the overall architecture of the station relies on a pragmatic sample position-ing solution, with a rotation stage with a range of 220°, coarse stages for sub-micrometer resolution in a range of 20mm in XYZ, and a fine piezo stage for nanometer resolution in a range of 0.3mm in XYZ. Typical scans consist of continuous raster 2D trajectories perpendicularly to the beam, over ranges that vary from tens to hundreds of micrometers, with acquisition times in range of milliseconds. Positioning based on 4th-order trajectories and feedforward, triggering including the multiple detectors and data storage are addressed.

Since the Siam Photon Source (SPS) has electron beam energy upgraded from 1.0 GeV to 1.2 GeV in 2005, the storage ring impedance measurements was done once in 2007. Two insertion devices (IDs) have been installed in the SPS storage ring during June to August 2013. These add several vacuum components in the storage ring, which affect the ring impedance. The instabilities of beam inside the ring are not well understood and need further investigation. Quantitative understanding of instabilities requires detailed knowledge of impedance of the ring. For this purpose, the activities of impedance study are developed aiming to establish an impedance database. The wake potentials of each vacuum component will be kept and maintains in a standard format. The Self Describing Data Sets (SDDS) file format will be utilized torecord component's wake potentials. The wake potentials of each vacuum component can be obtained from a particle tracking simulations; CST particle studio will be used in the simulation process. Details of beam impedance study on tapered chambers, bellows, and small cross section chambers in order to construct an impedance database will be presented.

SPMS has served good so far, but it needs to retire and enjoy his pension.
Indico, despite its young age (is it?) looks promising for taking the role.
This paper explains the hows and whens.

The stable cooling system is an important system for a stable operation of the RF cavity. The new RF cavity system was installed in the Siam Photon Source (SPS) in 2016. The new cavity is kept running with
42-degree Celsius water cooling system. There were several problems with the cooling system during one-year operation. The main problem is the heat accumulate in the system. The activities to decrease this
accumulated heat in the cooling unit is in progress. The study to decrease the cooling temperature is also started. Decreasing water temperature will prolong operation of water cooling unit and help a bit of
reducing electricity consumption. The activities are concerned the changing position of tuner to get the operation frequency with the temperature changing. The cavity is a capacitive loaded type and is tuned by
changing the capacitor gap. This deforms shape of the cavity, which affects the higher order mode (HOM) frequencies. The study of these HOMs with the temperature and the effect to the stored beam will be
The lifetime of the stored beam in storage ring is maintained by a sufficient RF acceleration from a cavity. The longitudinal dynamics of the stored beam is dominated by the RF accelerating voltage of the cavity. There is a discrepancy between the setting RF voltage and the beam dynamics measurement. This affects the beam dynamics studies to maintain a good quality beam to produce a good synchrotron light. The discrepancy should be kept at acceptable value. The activities to clarify this discrepancy such as the cavity voltage measurement with the synchrotron tune, and the calibrating of the RF cavity voltage are performed. Details and results of these activities will be presented.
The FAIR Settings Management system has now been used productively for the GSI accelerator facility operating synchrotrons, storage rings, and transfer lines. The system’s core is being developed in a collaboration with CERN, and is based on CERN’s LHC Software Architecture (LSA) framework. At GSI, 2018 was dedicated to integrating the Beam Scheduling System BSS. Major implementations for storage rings were performed in 2019, while 2020 the main focus was on optimizing the performance of the overall control system. Integrating with the BSS allows us to configure the beam execution directly from the settings management system. Defining signals and conditions enables us to control the runtime behavior of the machine. The storage ring mode supports flexible operation with features allowing to pause the machine and execute in-cycle modifications, using concepts like breakpoints, repetitions, skipping, and manipulation. After providing these major new features and their successful productive use, the focus was shifted on optimizing their performance. The performance was analyzed and improved based on real-word scenarios defined by operations and machine experts. Am adding an amount of blabla to see whether I can get up to 1200 characters and what happens. I ought to be there by now so am wondering whether the 1200 works or not ... There is apparently a way to go until I reach the 1200. Perhaps the blank spaces aren't counted? Wonder whether carriage returns are counted. This ought to be over 1200 characters ...

The "Cabling and Controls Database" (CCDB) is a central repository where the different teams of ALBA manage the information of installed racks, equipment, cables and connectors, and their connections and technical specifications. ALBA has modernized this web application for sustainability reasons and fit new needs detected throughout the last years of operation in our facility. The application has been linked to Jira to allow tracking problems in specific installed equipment or locations. In addition, it also connects to the ALBA Inventory Pools application, the warehouse management system, where the stock of physical equipment and components are maintained to get information on the life cycle of the different devices. These new features, integrated with proprietary products like Jira and Insight, aim to become ALBA's asset management system. This paper aims to describe the main features of the recent application upgrade, currently in continuous development.
Congratulations for the first successful implementation of indico-spms system!

After 18 years of using Oracle to host the JACoW Scientific Program Management System (SPMS), the JACoW collaboration looks forward to a new implementation within Indico, thereby securing the long-term sustainability of JACoW services tailored towards the accelerator community.
ALBA, a 3rd Generation Synchroton Light Source located near Barcelona in Spain, is in operation since 2012. During the last 10 years, the updates of ALBA's Control System were severely limited in order to prevent disruptions of production equipment, at the cost of having to deal with hardware and software obsolescence, elevating the effort of maintenance and enhancements. The construction of the second phase new beamlines accelerated the renewal of the software stack. In order to limit the number of supported platforms we also gradually upgraded the already operational subsystems. We are in the process of switching to the Debian OS, upgrading to the Tango 9 Control System framework including the Tango Archiving System to HDB++, migrating our code to Python 3, and migrating our GUIs to PyQt5 and PyQtGraph, etc. In order to ensure the project quality and to facilitate future upgrades, we try to automate testing, packaging, and configuration management with CI/CD pipelines using, among others, the following tools: pytest, Docker, GitLab-CI and Salt. In this paper, we present our strategy in this project, the current status of different upgrades and we share the lessons learnt.
BEPCⅡ，a linear accelerator, developed by institute of high energy physics of Chinese academy of sciences, is an electron-positron collider beam accelerator. It is modified on the basis of the BEPC linear accelerator, which is mainly consisted of the electron gun, accelerating tube, positron source, beam detector, klystron modulator, waveguides, etc. To meet the needs of the BEPCII, linear accelerator needs to operate in the high vacuum state to reduce the scattering effect of residual gas on beam flow. That is why a full transformation was made to vacuum system, including the pump configuration, vacuum pipe layout, measuring system and the valve controller upgrade, and klystron, positron source, vacuum transformation of waveguide valve. All vacuum components were designed and fabricated in strict accordance with the ultra-high vacuum process, which ultimately reached the standard of design acceptance index in advance. And the vacuum value: electron gun: P≤6.7×10-7 Pa, accelerating tube center: P≤6.7×10-5 Pa, klystron output window: P≤6.7×10-6 Pa.
This is a new abstract for testing.
