International Particle Accelerator Conference IPAC 14
World's largest accelerator conference in dresden
Experiments with accelerated particles have already provided many valuable insights for science and society. Accelerators are therefore indispensable in modern research, but the large machines must also function reliably in the field of medicine or within the commercial sphere. The International Particle Accelerator Conference IPAC 2014, which takes place from June 15-20 in Dresden/Germany, will thus include different topics on its agenda: from accelerator projects of the future to alternative concepts and applications such as cancer therapy.
