- The Medium-energy Electron Ion Collider (MEIC), a proposed medium-energy ring-ring electron-ion collider based on CEBAF at Jefferson Lab. The collider luminosity and stability are sensitive to the choice of a working point - the betatron and synchrotron tunes of the two colliding beams. Therefore, a careful selection of the working point is essential for stable operation of the collider, as well as for achieving high luminosity. Here we describe a novel approach for locating an optimal working point based on evolutionary algorithm techniques.
