A letter from the organizers

Welcome to IPAC'18!

The 9th International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC'18), will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada from April 29 to May 4, 2018. The venue will be the brand new JW Marriott Parq Vancouver which features overlooking views of False Creek, Granville Island, and English Bay.

IPAC is the main international event for the worldwide accelerator community and industry. Attendees will be presented with cutting-edge accelerator research and development results and gain the latest insights into accelerator facilities across the globe. Over 1200 delegates and 70 industry exhibits are expected to be in attendance.

Vancouver is a culturally diverse city familiar with welcoming visitors from all over the world. Nestled between the Salish Sea and the North Shore mountains, Vancouver is a portal for excursions to Whistler and Vancouver Island, as well as cruises to Alaska.

At IPAC'18, you will have the opportunity to meet and interact with accelerator scientists, engineers, students, and vendors while experiencing Canada’s most culturally and geographically diverse city.
