The fourth Annual Meeting of the Future Circular Collider Study will take place from 09 to 13 April 2018 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
The FCC Week will feature a scientific program, an industrial partnership program and exhibition and an innovation poster session. The scientific program features plenary sessions on Monday and Friday and four parallel sessions on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The Monday plenary sessions give an overview on the study progress in the morning and keynote speakers highlight particular advancements and strategic programs in the afternoon. The Friday morning plenary session gives a summary of the week. A special plenary session on Thursday evening puts the spotlight on the potential Dutch contributions for such a visionary project. The parallel sessions serve intersectoral and expert knowledge exchange of the different science and technology domains covered by the study. FCC, EuroCirCol and EASItrain governance bodies meet during this week to monitor and steer the advancement of the work program. A dedicated poster session program serves as a platform to highlight advancements that are relevant for the study progress, that have the potentials for technological breakthroughs to enable a frontier particle accelerator infrastructure and which may have significant societal and industrial impacts. Three prizes are awarded to outstanding contributions in this session by the IEEE and by key industrial partners.
