On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to announce that the 12th International Particle Accelerator Conference - IPACí21 will be held in virtual format from May 24-28, 2021.
IPACí21 is being organized by the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), located in Campinas, Brazil. This will be the first time IPAC will be held in South America.
The conference was planned for the Brazilian city of Iguassu Falls but, unfortunately, due to the present situation of the COVID-19 pandemic in the globe, with many countries heading into a new outbreak phase, the OC has made the painful decision for a wholly virtual event.
We are pleased to inform that the IPACí21 program will include invited and contributed talks, as well as poster presentation sessions. Conference proceedings with all properly presented contributions will be edited and published as JACoW Proceedings.
IPAC is the main international event to discuss the latest achievements in the science and technology of Particle Accelerators, promoting collaboration among scientists, engineers, technicians, students and industrial partners across the globe. This is a most exciting time in the field, with many new projects and challenges leading to innovation into the near future.
We are looking forward to a most lively conference and hope to meet you virtually at IPACí21!
