Welcome to IPAC 2012

We are pleased to announce that the International Particle Accelerator Conference IPAC'12 will take place at the Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, USA, from May 20 - 25, 2012. This is the third conference in the new IPAC series, resulting from the combining of the previous regional accelerator conferences held in North America, Europe and Asia. This is the first IPAC to be held in the USA.

IPAC'12 will provide an opportunity for Accelerator Scientists, Engineers, Students and Industrial Vendors to meet and interact in a convivial environment, encouraging the exchange of information and ideas across the broad spectrum of accelerator science and technology. The Morial Convention Center, with its superbly modern facilities, provides a perfect venue to encourage that process, while the historic city of New Orleans has all the necessary infrastructure to cater to delegates arriving from around the world.

New Orleans, located in the State of Louisiana, lies astride the mighty Mississippi river in the deep south of the USA. It is renowned for its unique multi-ethnic culture having roots in the 17th century, for its outstanding cuisine, and, of course, as the birthplace of jazz. Described as America’s most walkable city, there are endless opportunities for shopping, dining, culture, tourism, and music--all of which provide a perfect backdrop for the conference. So please come along and experience firsthand our fabled southern hospitality.

IPAC'12 is sponsored by IEEE(Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society) and the American Physical Society(Division of Physics of Beams) and is hosted by Louisiana State University through its synchrotron light facility CAMD.

We look forward to welcoming you to New Orleans and meeting you at the conference.
