  The workshop “Machine Protection focusing on Linear Accelerator Complexes” was held from 6-8 June 2012 at Cern. This workshop brought together experts working on machine protection systems for accelerator facilities with high brilliance or large stored beam energies, with the main focus on linear accelerators and their injectors. An overview of the machine protection systems for several accelerators was given. Beam loss mechanisms and their detection were discussed. Mitigation of failures and protection systems were presented. This paper summarises the workshop and reviews the current state of the art in machine protection systems.
