This year’s International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC’16) took place at the BEXCO Convention Centre, located in the lively and scenic Haeundae District of Busan, South Korea. IPAC'16 was the seventh International Particle Accelerator Conference, a conference that rotates annually between Asia/Oceania, Europe, and the Americas. Since 2010, IPAC has been the premier event in the field of particle accelerators, attracting over 1,500 experts from accelerator laboratories and universities around the world.

Project Coordinator Prof. Carsten P. Welsch presented a poster about some of the recent research highlights from the ITNs oPAC and LA3NET. He also summarized the numerous training events, such as international Schools, Topical Workshops, Conferences and Outreach events that these large scale initiatives have organized over the years. This was complemented by an overview of the research and training targets of the brand-new European network on the Optimization of Medical Accelerators (OMA).

Dr. Ricardo Torres and Magda Klimontowska from the EU Project TEAM presented highlights from our network and also research achievements from ITN Fellows based at institutions across Europe at a dedicated industry stand.

Particular highlights were the release of project leaflets for the H2020 Design Studies EuPRAXIA and EuroCirCol, as well as OMA.
