On behalf of the organizing committee, I am pleased to welcome you to Shanghai, China, for the 7th International Beam Instrumentation Conference (IBIC 2018) which is held between September 9th and 13th 2018.
Like its predecessors, this conference is also dedicated to exploring the physics and engineering challenges of beam diagnostics and measurement techniques for charged particle beams. The conference program will include tutorials on selected topics, invited and selected talks, as well as poster sessions. During the conference, a tour to the Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF) and the Shanghai X-Ray Free-Electron Laser (SXFEL) Facility will also be included.
IBIC 2018 is hosted by the Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics (SINAP), which is the photon science center of China, operating two large scale facilities: SSRF and SXFEL. SSRF is the first 3rd generation synchrotron light source in China, providing more than 5,000 hours of beam time per year. Meanwhile, SSRF is available for the academic and the industrial sector, serving more than 2,000 researchers and 32 research units every year. SXFEL is the first X-Ray free-electron laser user facility in China which is opening to user in 2018.
The venue is Parkyard Hotel which awarded the "Best Designed Hotel" by the Asia Pacific Interior Awards in 2007.
Shanghai, located on China's central eastern coast at the mouth of the Yangtze River, is mainland China's center for commerce and finance. The city is also an emerging tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as the Bund, Xintiandi, Yu Garden and the Oriental Pearl Tower.
We look forward to welcoming you to Shanghai.
