The ninth edition of the Future Circular Collider (FCC) Conference will take place in London, United Kingdom from 5 to 9 June 2023. The meeting brings together the international scientific community pursuing a feasibility study for a visionary post-LHC research infrastructure at CERN and is organized with the support of the EU-funded H2020 FCCIS project.
Leading experts from academia and industry will review the recent progress en route to the completion of the feasibility study in 2025 and set the near-term goals for the coming years. The physics opportunities opened by the FCC integrated programme as well as the status of key technology R&D programmes will be discussed along with the technological opportunities on offer for building new collaborative projects. The meeting is an excellent opportunity to reinforce the bonds between the FCC collaborating institutes and to draft the work plans for the submission of the FCC mid-term review to the CERN's Council later this year.
The FCC Week 2023 will follow the traditional layout of plenary and parallel sessions covering all aspects of the study: physics, experiments, machine design, technologies, infrastructures and civil engineering. Monday features a set of plenary keynote presentations with top-ranking international speakers from the world of science, industry and European affairs, offering an overview about the ongoing activities across all parts of the study and serve to inform study members about the updated boundary conditions from placement studies, the latest machine parameters and progress on understanding the physics potential that the FCC integrated programme can offer during its lifetime. Parallel sessions will focus on specific areas. Satellite meetings for UK-related projects and for the governance bodies of the FCC study will be included in the programme that is being developed. Participation of industry is highly encouraged as addressing the technological challenges of a new research infrastructure presents opportunities for co-innovation.
The work carried out in the framework of the FCC Feasibility Study will inform the next update of the European Strategy and benefit society in areas beyond particle physics. We strongly encourage submission of proposals for posters via Indico on the FCCW2023 site. Oral contributions are by invitation.
