OVERVIEW

It is our pleasure to announce the fifth International Future Circular Collider (FCC) Conference that will take place in Brussels, Belgium, from 24 to 28 June 2019. This conference is also the final event of the H2020 EuroCirCol Design Study. The FCC Week 2019 marks the completion of the conceptual feasibility study for a post-LHC research infrastructure which is documented in the four volumes of the FCC Conceptual Design Report.

The FCC Week 2019 will bring together leading minds in science, engineering and economics to review the results of the first phase of the FCC study and to discuss and set the near-term goals for the coming years. The status of key technology R&D programmes will also be reviewed. The meeting is an excellent opportunity to reinforce the bonds between the collaborating institutes and to draft the work plans for the next design phase.

The FCC Week 2019 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. The Economics of Science track on Tuesday will federate leading experts from economics, political science and leading research infrastructures to discuss the socio-economic impact potentials of a future particle collider programme.

We strongly encourage submission of proposals for posters via Indico on the FCCW2019 site. Oral contributions are by invitation.
