LINAC2022 Chairs' welcome
It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 31st Linear Accelerator Conference (LINAC). In 2022, LINAC will come to England, the birthplace of accelerator science, and take place at the Arena and Convention Centre (ACC) in the beautiful city of Liverpool between 28 August and 2 September 2022. The conference will be jointly hosted by UKRI-STFC, the John Adams Institute and the Cockcroft Institute.
LINAC is the main bi-yearly gathering for the world-wide community of linear accelerator experts. The conference will provide a unique opportunity to hear about the latest advances in research and developments on linacs and their applications.
Following a long and successful tradition, LINAC 2022 will feature invited and contributed talks, as well as poster sessions and an industry exhibition. An exciting scientific programme will be complemented by social events that promote informal knowledge exchange. There are a number of sponsorship opportunities for all those who would like to support the event and gain visibility. Currently, the focus is on a full in-person conference – remote participation will be offered, but limited to selected talks.
Participants will also have the opportunity to see the new CLARA Free Electron Laser test accelerator, plus witnessing the SRF facilities providing; accelerating cavities for the European Spallation Neutron source in Sweden, accelerating cryomodules for the PIP-II project in the US and crab cryomodules for the HL-LHC upgrade, each of which being available at the local STFC Daresbury Laboratory.
LINAC encourages in particular students and underrepresented communities to participate and a number of scholarships for students will be offered. Registration will open in January 2022 and we encourage you to register early to secure a place.
We look forward to welcoming you in Liverpool!
