The world’s largest accelerator conference is held from 29 April to 4 May in Vancouver, Canada, this year. Already for the 9th time experts from all over the world meet at the International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC) to discuss cutting-edge accelerator research and development results and gain the latest insights into accelerator facilities across the globe. IPAC is the main international event for the worldwide accelerator community and industry. More than 1,200 delegates and 70 industry exhibits are expected to be in attendance.
FAIR and GSI will be present at IPAC with a booth at the exhibition area. The exhibition is open from 29 April to 2 May until 6 p.m. FAIR experts are available for discussions to give deeper insight into the accelerators and experiments and to answer questions. In two talks Dr. Peter Spiller, head of the SIS100/SIS18 department responsible for the new FAIR ring accelerator, will inform about the status of the FAIR project, and Professor Mei Bai, head of the Accelerator Operation, will explain the challenges of the current experiment activities of FAIR Phase 0.
