Welcome to IPAC’16

IPAC’16, the Seventh International Particle Accelerator Conference, will be held in Busan, Korea from May 8-13, 2016. IPAC brings together accelerator scientists, engineers, students and industrial vendors from across the globe to share ideas and exchange information on the cutting edge of accelerator science and technology.

The conference will be held at the BEXCO Convention Center, a world-class facility with spacious exhibition halls and state-of-the-art equipment and amenities, located in the heart of Busan’s lively Haeundae District.

Korea’s second largest city, Busan is a major cultural and economic center. It is well known in artistic circles as the home of the annual Busan International Film Festival and it boasts the country’s largest port. The city’s Haeundae District, where the convention center is located, is home to upscale shops, restaurants, and hotels, as well as scenic Haeundae Beach, the most famous in Korea.

BEXCO is located within two hours of three government-funded accelerator facilities, Pohang Accelerator Laboratory in Pohang, KOMAC in Gyeongju, and KHIMA in the neighboring Gijang area of Busan. (Conference tours are planned to visit all three of these facilities.)

IPAC’16 is hosted by Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL), home of PLS-II and the soon-to-be-completed PAL-XFEL. We trust that Busan’s attractive mix of beaches and hills will provide a conducive environment for a successful and memorable conference.
