IPAC20 for Industrial companies

We are delighted to invite your company to participate as an exhibitor to the 11th International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC'20) to be held at the Parc des Expositions in Caen, Normandy, France on May 10-15, 2020. Please save the date!

IPAC'20 will be hosted by GANIL, the Large National Heavy Ion Accelerator and supported by the entire French accelerator community.

IPAC'20 is expected to attract more than 1,200 scientists and engineers from laboratories, universities and companies all around the world, including many key decision-makers from major accelerator facilities.

IPAC events are the premier venue to learn about on-going and future accelerator projects. They offer to industry an opportunity to present instruments, specialized products, services and scientific publications relevant to operation of facilities, research and development and education of the accelerator community.

The industrial exhibition, which will take place from May 11th to 13th, 2020, is fully integrated into the conference scientific program and professional networking activities. Conference poster sessions and coffee breaks will be located throughout the exhibit hall in order to maximize interaction between exhibitors and conference participants.

SPAS2018 Conference

The conference Superconductivity & Particle Accelerators took place in Kraków at The Henryk Niewodniczański Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences (IFJ PAN) on November 26-30, 2018.

The conference was devoted to research in the domain of superconductivity and its applications in science, as well as on research in the field of particle accelerators, conducted in Polish research institutions as well as by Polish scientists working in the international laboratories. It was a continuation of the previous conferences, held at the IFJ PAN in 2012, 2014 and 2016. The objective of this conference was to identify current and potential areas of research in superconductivity and particle accelerators, developed and possible to develop in Poland and to determine the needs in the infrastructure to support this research.


AMICI-ARIES workshop

AMICI-ARIES workshop on Intellectual Property in collaborating activities between Research and Technical Infrastructure and Industry.

Both EU projects ARIES and AMICI have identified IPR in common programs between Research or Technical infrastructure with industry as a topic that deserves more discussion with the aim to define standard common practices and procedures. Four presentations from KT representatives and experts of CERN, DESY, INFN and STFC are planned, followed by presentation and commen/pts from industries representatives ( C.Boffo from Babcock Noell GmbH – Bilfinger and A.Ceracchi from Cecom). The main point under discussion was centered on how managing the possible IPR conflicts between industries and academia participating into joint projects.
