FCC Study Week 2015
Today CERN have announced the first Annual Meeting of the Future Circular Collider study which will take place from 23rd to 27th March 2015 in Washington D.C. This international study is closely linked to the R&D activities of the QUASAR Group.
This meeting will be an important milestone to conclude the first, exploratory phase, leading to the identification of the baseline for the further study. Organized as an IEEE conference, it will provide the opportunity for re-enforcing the cohesion of the community and to catalyse cross-fertilization within the FCC study.
This event will follow the traditional layout of plenary and parallel sessions with invited contributions. Plenary sessions will give an overview about the ongoing activities across all parts of the study and serve informing study members about the main boundary conditions and working hypothesis. Parallel sessions will focus on specific areas of the study and a limited number of contributed 10’ presentations are foreseen, to enable communication of key findings of ongoing work with significant impact on the subsequent study phases in an efficient way. Submission of proposals which will be reviewed by the organising committee is highly encouraged.
Satellite meetings for related projects and governance bodies will be included the program. Participation of industry is also highly encouraged and supported via a dedicated industry track and a micro exhibition, focusing on superconducting cable technology. Communication and equal opportunity aspects will be addressed in dedicated working group meetings.
A detailed agenda is under preparation and a preliminary version available on the FCC Week website where also practical information regarding travel and accommodation can be found. Registration is mandatory and has already started. The early registration deadline is 5th January 2015. Registration link.
