Welcome from the Chair

con il patrocinio del
Comune di Genova

On behalf of the European Physical Society Accelerator Group (EPS-AG), which forms the core of the Organizing Committee (OC) of the EPAC series of conferences, I am pleased to announce the 11th biennial European Particle Accelerator Conference, EPAC'08, to be held in Genoa, Italy, from 23 to 27 June 2008.

Genoa overlooks the Mediterranean sea. Its history has been moulded by the sea presence, giving birth to navigators, discoverers, artists. The Conference poster reflects Genoa international vocation: Cristoforo Colombo, from whose voyage Europe became aware of America’s existence, was born in Genoa. Marco Polo, who opened the European roads to Asian countries, wrote his travel book, Il Milione, in his forced Genoa sojourn.

The Magazzini del Cotone Venue, hosting the Conference, provides delegates with a modern environment for attending oral sessions, for fruitful scientific discussions during the poster sessions, for connecting with the industrial exhibitors, and for relaxing looking out from the high windows over the sea.

I look forward to greeting you at EPAC'08.

Caterina Biscari, INFN-LNF
Chair of the EPS-AG Elected Board
Chair of the EPAC'08 OC
