RISP Particle Accelerator Forum

August 10, Thursday, 3:40-5:40 PM

Lincoln Hall, 3rd Floor

World-renowned accelerators are the discovery and innovation engines of scientific enterprise and are where the Korean particle accelerator communities are steadily forwarded for. It is imperative that the critical value-added role of particle accelerator facility in the areas of fundamental science and application to be sustained. In Korea, Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL) and Korea Multi-purpose Accelerator Complex (KOMAC) are successfully operating and a rare isotope accelerator facility, RAON, to be commissioned on 2021, will provide the considerable values to the particle accelerator community. This forum brings the researchers from Korea and U.S. to discuss the status and future of the particle accelerators and related fields of science and technology.
