We thank the international particle accelerator community for your overwhelming interest in the IPAC’18.

We come to the point where the number of registrants approaches the capacity of the meeting rooms.

Regrettably, therefore, we are setting a limit on new registrations.

General registration shall continue closed.

However, all invited speakers, and all known first-author poster presenters, that have not yet registered will be given the opportunity to do so; and will be contacted directly by the registration secretariat.

Further, all known registration requests that were pending as of March 24 will also be processed to completion.

Finally, if it is imperative that you attend the conference and have not yet registered, then please contact the registration secretariat directly at (and copy to ) explaining the circumstances.

These requests will be processed on a case-by-case basis.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we enter the last few weeks before IPAC’18.
