JACoW Central Profiles Repository

The JACoW Collaboration has developed and maintains a central repository (located at CERN) of people and institutions that are part of the global accelerator community. This tool was created as a service to the community to make it easier for conference attendees to participate in accelerator-related conferences around the world with the use of one profile and account.

Members of the community create their own account (login) to protect access and maintain their own profile data. They select their affiliation from an official list and can choose to receive announcements of JACoW collaboration conferences.

The central repository is composed of two modules:

Affiliations module: a database containing the addresses of laboratories, universities, institutes, etc., that carry out activities in the field of accelerator science and technology.

Profiles module: a database containing profiles of individuals active in the accelerator community, populated with data derived from JACoW collaboration conferences. Profile data are, for example, first and middle names, family name, e-mail address, and affiliation data derived from the affiliations module, all of a non-confidential nature.

When submitting a contribution to a conference, or registering to attend, individuals enter via their profile/account, avoiding tedious and repetitive data entry and extensive verification for organizers.

Members of the accelerator community are invited to connect to the JACoW Central Profiles Repository to:

  • Check whether a profile has been created for them, and if so
  • Create an account that will enable access to the profile
    Note: do not try to change your affiliation at this stage, just complete the mandatory fields.
  • Log in to your account, verify and, if necessary, correct any data already entered
  • If no profile yet exists, create a new account and associated profile.

Use of Profile Data - Privacy Policy

As indicated previously, profile data (name, e-mail, affiliation) are primarily for use in connection with the submission of contributions to the scientific programme of conferences. It is also, with the permission of the owners, used to inform them of forthcoming conferences.

The data are under no circumstances:

  • used for any purpose other than in relation to the organization of JACoW collaboration conferences or
  • provided to any external body for any commercial purposes whatsoever.
