The Marathon begins at approximately 7 a.m. and will be past our hotel with streets open by approximately 11 a.m. If you are able to delay your arrival until that time, it is highly recommended.
The North American Particle Accelerator Conference (NAPAC) is held on an 18-month cycle and brings together several hundred experts in all fields of accelerator science and technology. It is the largest domestic particle accelerator conference and covers the entire spectrum of accelerator science and technology topics. As such, NAPAC is particularly useful for students, post-docs, technicians, and engineers as they can be exposed to the entire field in one conference. Delegates present invited and contributed papers and posters, receive immediate feedback on their research, and get problem-solving suggestions. Mini-courses on highly-relevant topics are also offered. Everyone leaves with new ideas and possible solutions to their own technical problems. Attendees develop new contacts and strengthen existing collaborations with colleagues throughout the DOE complex and internationally. Many of the most prominent accelerator vendors also present at and help support NAPAC. It is an excellent venue for all conference attendees to bring themselves up to date with the newest developments in accelerator technology. The conference is co-sponsored by IEEE and the American Physical Society.
NAPAC16 will be held in the heart of downtown Chicago at the Sheraton Grand Chicago. Please use this link to reserve your room at the special meeting rate.
Looking forward to seeing you at NAPAC16,
Marion White, Conference Chair
Vladimir Shiltsev, Program Chair
