The Accelerator Physics Group at the Australian Synchrotron is holding an open workshop on top-up operations at synchrotron light sources, in the week following SRI09. The workshop will include presentations and discussions on the accelerator physics and operational aspects of running an electron storage ring in top-up mode.

The aim of the workshop is to review and discuss the path to top-up operations, including the successes so far and challenges that are still outstanding.
