I am pleased to announce and invite you to the 28th Linear Accelerator Conference, LINAC16, to take place at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Centre in East Lansing, Michigan on 25-30 September 2016.

This conference is the main bi-yearly gathering for the world-wide community of linac specialists. It provides a unique opportunity to hear about the latest advances of projects and developments concerning hadron and lepton linacs, and their applications.

In the tradition of previous LINAC conferences, plenary sessions including invited speakers are scheduled every day. Poster sessions will be held on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. There will also be two special events on Sunday, 25 September 2016, namely a student poster session and an evening reception for registrants and their companions at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center. Participants are also warmly invited to join an outing to Lake Michigan and the beautiful surroundings on Wednesday afternoon, and to visit the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams on Friday afternoon, after the formal end of the conference.

Participants of LINAC16 will include representatives of institutions and companies involved in the design, construction or use of linear accelerators. Companies interested in promoting their products are encouraged to hold a booth in the industrial exhibit and to apply for sponsorship.

The active participation of students is encouraged, with incentives and funding available for supporting those who qualify.

We look forward to welcoming you to East Lansing!

Sincerely,

Yoshishige Yamazaki – IOC Chair
Yan Zhang – LOC Chair
