Coronavirus: Unfortunately we had to take the difficult decision to postpone this conference. The next LINAC will now be held between 28 August - 2 September 2022. A smaller online event will be held this year and more information and instructions on how to join will be published on this website. We would like to thank everyone for their interest and support and look forward to seeing you in Liverpool for LINAC in 2022!

Linac 2020 Chairs' Welcome

On behalf of the LINAC2020 Local Organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to participate in the 30th Linear Accelerator Conference (LINAC). In 2020, LINAC will come to England, the birthplace of accelerator science and take place at the Arena and Convention Centre in beautiful Liverpool, UK from 30 August - 4 September 2020.

LINAC is the main bi-yearly gathering for the worldwide community of linear accelerator experts. The conference will provide a unique opportunity to hear about the latest advances in research and developments on hadron and lepton linacs and their applications.

Following a long and successful tradition of almost 60-year’s, LINAC2020 will feature invited and contributed talks, as well as poster sessions and an industry exhibition. The scientific programme will be complemented by social events that promote informal knowledge exchange, plus for the first time in LINAC we will host a Women in Science and Engineering event. There are a number of sponsorship opportunities for all those who would like to support the event and gain visibility.

Delegates will also have the opportunity to see the new CLARA Free Electron Laser test accelerator, plus witnessing the SRF cavity qualification facility providing accelerating cavities for the European Spallation Neutron source in Sweden and crab-cavity cryomodule preparation for HL-LHC and CERN, each of which being available at the local STFC Daresbury Laboratory.

LINAC encourages students in particular to participate and a number of scholarships will be offered. Registration is now open and we encourage you to register early to secure a place.

We look forward to seeing you in Liverpool!
