the research centre DESY is pleased to host the DIPAC2011, European Workshop on Beam Diagnostics and Instrumentation for Particle Accelerators, in Hamburg, Germany on board of the museum freighter Cap San Diego, from 16-18 May 2011.
DIPAC provides a unique forum for experts and novices to share their experience and to exchange information and ideas in the field of particle accelerator beam diagnostics. The workshop aims to provide an atmosphere that fosters lively discussions regarding latest developments and new concepts in instrumentation at particle accelerator facilities worldwide, ranging from low energy gun and injector test facilities to high energy, high intensity hadron accelerators and colliders. Diagnostics and instrumentation issues at synchrotron radiation user facilities, accelerator-based cancer therapy centres and next generation LINAC-based FELs also form an integral part of the Workshop.
The DIPAC2011 Programme Committee encourages those actively engaged in this rapidly advancing field of accelerator design to participate and contribute to the scientific programme by submitting abstracts for poster or oral presentations. Further information concerning all aspects of the workshop can be found on this website.
The venue of DIPAC2011 is the still fully functional freighter Cap San Diego which anchors (attached firmly(!)) at the Überseebrücke in the centre of Hamburg. The talks and poster sessions will be held in the former cargo holds of the Cap San Diego, so you can expect a quite exciting atmosphere. All recommended hotels and quite a number of attractions you will find in walking distance to the ship.
Registration, accommodation and abstract submission will be open from 1st Dec. 2010.
The conference poster can be found under "Poster" on the left. We hope that DIPAC2011 will attract your attention.
We are looking forward to welcome you on board the Cap San Diego in Hamburg.
So long, Kay Wittenburg (Chair)
On behalf of the DIPAC2011 Program Committee.
