October 20 — 24, 2018, Key West, Florida, USA

13th International Computational Accelerator Physics Conference


We are pleased to announce that the 13th International Computational Accelerator Physics Conference, ICAP’18, hosted by Michigan State University, will take place in Key West, Florida, USA, from October 20 to 24, 2018.

The ICAP’18 conference will be the 13th in the conference series, following meetings in La Jolla, USA (1988), Los Alamos, USA (1990), Pleasanton, USA (1993), Williamsburg, USA (1996), Monterey, USA (1998), Darmstadt, Germany (2000), East Lansing, USA (2002), St. Petersburg, Russia (2004), Chamonix, France (2006), San Francisco, USA (2009), Rostock-Warnemünde, Germany (2012), and Shanghai, China (2015).

ICAP’18 will focus on advances in Computational Accelerator Physics and their application to existing machines and future facilities. It will provide a forum for researchers in modeling and simulation to exchange information and discuss new ideas that benefit a wide area of accelerator science and technology. Topics of the conference will include computational needs and challenges, beam dynamics and electromagnetic field calculations, code development and validation, data processing and visualization, high performance computing, as well as emerging technologies that will impact computing for accelerator design.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Key West, and to meeting you at the conference.
