IPAC International Particle Accelerator Conferences

As stated in the chairman's welcome address, the three regional particle accelerator conferences, namely, PAC in North America, EPAC in Europe, and APAC in Asia, were united into one, and IPAC was created as a new series of particle accelerator conferences from 2010. This is a great milestone for the world accelerator community and it reflects the maturity of international collaboration in the accelerator field.

The first IPAC, IPAC10, is held in Asia at Kyoto.

The first IPAC in Europe will be held in Spain in September, 2011, and the first IPAC in North America will be held at New Orleans in May, 2012.
