CHATS-AS workshop has been organized to discuss applied superconductivity at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), Berkeley, USA, on September 5-7, 2006. The workshop provided an ongoing opportunity to discuss and advance the science of simulations and modeling specifically applied to superconducting magnets. CHATS-AS 2006 has contributed to the development and refinement of models used to study the stability of superconductors, simulate quench propagation, and perform structural analysis of superconducting magnets. A number of presentations provided significant advances in measuring and modeling current sharing and contact resistances between superconducting strands in CHATS-AS workshops. The workshop included both LTS and HTS applications, extending the LTS experience in modeling superconducting devices to the realm of HTS applications.
