Energy Frontier DIS at CERN: the LHeC and the FCC-eh / Holzer, Bernhard (CERN) ; André, Kevin D J (CERN ; Liverpool U.) /LHeC Collaboration ; FCC-eh Study Group Collaboration
The Large Hadron-electron Collider (LHeC) at CERN is a design study in the context of the LHC luminosity upgrade project, HL-LHC, to establish electron-proton/nucleus collisions with centre-of-mass energies in the TeV regime and luminosities in the order of 10^34𝑐𝑚−2𝑠−1. It implies the construction of an energy recovery linac in racetrack configuration to provide an intense 50 GeV electron beam that will collide with the HL-LHC hadron beams. [...]

The Gamma Factory path to high-luminosity LHC with isoscalar beams / Krasny, M W (Paris U., VI-VII ; CERN) ; Petrenko, A (Novosibirsk, IYF ; CERN) ; Płaczek, W (Jagiellonian U. (main))
There are two main ways to increase LHC luminosity without upgrading CERN injectors: (1) modification of beam-collision optics and (2) reduction of beam transverse emittance. The former is followed in the ongoing high-luminosity upgrade of the LHC (HL-LHC), while the latter, applicable only to ion beams, is described in this contribution [...]

A Method for Aligning the Phases of C10 Cavities in the AD / Albright, Simon (CERN)
The C10 cavities in the AD are used to rotate the injected beam distribution in the longitudinal phase space and then adiabatically debunch it, hence significantly reducing the momentum spread compared injection. [...]

Noble liquid calorimetry at the LHC and prospects of its application in future collider experiments / Aleksa, Martin (CERN)
Calorimetry is an important measurement technique in experimental particle physics. Although calorimeters based on liquefied noble gases were first proposed 50 years ago, they continue to play an important role in modern particle physics and have substantially contributed to the discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in 2012..
