Sustainability is one of the key challenges of our time. As physicists, we deal with observations, data and scientific results on a daily basis, and we thus have a natural access to the magnitude of the problem and its implications. This workshop aims at reflecting on and discussing our own future role in this situation: International collaboration and exchange is at the heart of the global physics community, in particular also the High-Energy Physics (HEP) community.
IPAC is the main international event to discuss the latest achievements in the science and technology of Particle Accelerators, promoting collaboration among scientists, engineers, technicians, students and industrial partners across the globe. This is a most exciting time in the field, with many new projects and challenges leading to innovation into the near future. IPAC’21 is being organized by the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), located in Campinas, Brazil. This will be the first time IPAC will be held in South America.
CHIPP is an association uniting researchers active in particle, astroparticle and nuclear physics in Switzerland. It strengthens the Swiss participation in international projects and committees, coordinates research and teaching activities in Switzerland, and promotes public awareness of the field.
The next annual meeting will take place at the University of Innsbruck, in the week of 30 August – 3 September 2021. The well established tradition of organising the conference every second year jointly with the Austrian Physical Society (ÖPG) will be continued, again in collaboration with CHIPP and SFB BeyondC. An interesting and rich program is thus guaranteed.
Crystals or nanostructures provide very strong electromagnetic fields and field gradients that can be utilized to guide and accelerate charged particle beams. This opens interesting new applications for particle accelerators
