This second Annual Meeting of the Future Circular Collider study brings together the leading minds in engineering and science to exchange information about the design progress and to set the goals for the coming year. On this occasion, dedicated technology R&D programmes ready to be launched at the international level, or already launched, will be presented. New links between institutes will be forged and the core collaboration will strengthen its bonds. The meeting will also serve as EuroCirCol collaboration meeting, with several sessions covering the main activities of this EU co-funded programme. Register now to take advantage of discount pricing for event and accommodation.

The FCC Week 2016 will follow the traditional layout of plenary and parallel sessions. Contributions are by invitation only and selected topics will be considered for publication in the Phys. Rev. ST - Accelerators & Beams (http://journals.aps.org/prstab) peer-reviewed journal.

An open poster session provides a platform to showcase visionary new concepts and technologies with significant impact on the further study and of high importance for the convergence of globally distributed activities. A panel will select the most innovative contribution with highest transformative potential, i.e.promising breakthroughs beyond the current state-of-the-art (1: innovation), the contribution with highest potential impact on industry and society (2: impact) and the contribution with the highest relevance for the technical feasibility studies (3: relevance).

Plenary sessions feature overviews of the progress in the individual study domains and will present the consolidated baselines that serve as basis for the further detailed elaboration phases. Parallel sessions focus on specific areas of the study to enable communication of key findings of ongoing work with significant impact on the forthcoming activities.

Satellite meetings concerning dependent activities such as the EuroCirCol H2020 project and governance bodies such as the International Collaboration Board will complete the program.

Participation of industry and potential future partners is highly encouraged.

Communication and equal opportunity aspects are addressed by dedicated working group meetings.
