The third International Particle Accelerator Conference [IPAC'12] is being held in New Orleans, Louisiana, on 20-25 May this year. The conference aims to be a truly international event, offering an opportunity for those involved in accelerator research, development and operation to communicate their work and keep up-to-date with the latest developments in the field.
The conference programme includes talks from outstanding speakers; poster sessions, including a special session for students; and an industrial exhibition and special session for industry relations. At the time of writing, nearly 1,200 people are registered to attend, with strong participation coming from Asia, Europe, and North America.
The IPAC series was launched in replacement of the previous, regional conference series Asian Particle Accelerator Conferences, European Particle Accelerator Conferences and Particle Accelerator Conferences. The new series is devoted to all aspects of accelerator physics, engineering and technology; and their application.
Last year’s conference – IPAC’11 – was held in San Sebastian, Spain, and attracted around 1,000 participants from across the globe. Proceedings from the oral and poster sessions – which cover such topics as colliders; light sources; lepton and hadron accelerators; beam dynamics; and accelerator technology – can be downloaded from the the Joint Accelerator Conferences and Workshops website.
