Diversity and representation Policy

The organisers of IPAC’20 aim to achieve a high level of diversity in speakers to reflect the diverse accelerator community. This is achieved by consideration of regional, gender and career level during development of the scientific programme. Gender diversity is for IPAC’20 targeted to be at least as high as the proportion of women in physics.
Statistics on the achieved speaker diversity will be made available on the conference website.
An event for discussion of diversity issues and networking will be held during the conference and open to all to attend.
