EVENT: More than 850 scientists, engineers, students, and industry representatives will convene in New York City at the end of March for the 2011 Particle Accelerator Conference (PAC’11). The conference is hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, located in Long Island, NY. Brookhaven operates two premier particle accelerators — the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) — and is building what will be the world’s most advanced light source, NSLS-II. At these facilities and other accelerators around the globe, scientists explore everything from mysteries of the early universe to clean and efficient fuels to new drugs. PAC’11 will showcase the technologies that keep these machines running.
WHEN: Monday, March 28 to Friday, April 1, 2011.
WHERE: New York Marriott Marquis Hotel, 1535 Broadway, New York, NY
BACKGROUND: PAC’11 will feature nearly 150 talks, more than 1,000 posters, and tutorials covering a wide range of topics in accelerator physics and engineering. In addition, three plenary speeches will highlight the role of accelerators in a variety of groundbreaking scientific discoveries:
PAC’11 is cosponsored by the American Physical Society (APS) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE).
