Original papers (not previously published or presented) from the whole field of accelerators are solicited for presentation at the conference, including low- and high-energy machines and accelerators for medical and industrial purposes, and accelerator subsystems.

The scientific program will consist of invited oral, contributed oral, and poster presentations. All contributed papers are to be submitted presuming poster presentation. From these the Scientific Program Committee (SPC) will decide, on the basis of the abstracts, which papers are suitable for oral presentation. All work presented at the conference can be submitted for publication in the proceedings.

Since no contributions are accepted for publication only, any paper accepted for presentation that is not presented at the conference will be excluded from the proceedings. Furthermore, the Scientific Program Committee (SPC) reserves the right to refuse for publication any work not properly presented in the poster sessions, i.e., work that is not posted or manned or of appropriate presentation quality. Manuscripts of contributions to the proceedings cannot be considered as posters.

In order to maintain the high standard of IPAC proceedings and to keep them to a reasonable size, potential authors are reminded that only novel, original work should be submitted. Authors of more than one paper are invited to consider whether these contributions could be combined into a single paper, with due reference to other publications or internal notes.
