In this paper, we present a low overhead beam management approach for near-field millimeter-wave multi-antenna communication systems enabled by Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces (RISs). We devise a novel variable-width hierarchical phase-shift codebook suitable for both the near- and far-field of the RIS, and present a fast alignment algorithm for the RIS phase shifts and the transceiver beamformers.
