The six-day event will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) in May and will welcome approximately 1,000 delegates. It is estimated it will provide a $5m (£2.7m) economic boost to the state.
Melbourne’s winning bid was presented in Korea by Mark Boland, principal scientist at the Australian Synchrotron, with the overall bid development being supported by Synchrotron head of corporate services Dr Dean Morris.
MCB CEO Karen Bolinger said: "Over the past few years, MCB and the Australian Synchrotron have collaborated on a number of bids to be the host institute for a variety of international conferences spanning all fields associated with synchrotron science.
"This approach has seen MCB and the Synchrotron team successfully secure six international meetings between April 2013 and October 2015. IPAC 2019 is our seventh collaborative win and the biggest so far."
Dean Morris, head of corporate services at the Australian Synchrotron, added: "Hosting IPAC 2019 in Melbourne will provide a unique opportunity to showcase the Australian Synchrotron to attendees."
"In its seven years of operation, the Australian Synchrotron – one of only two such facilities in the Southern Hemisphere - has helped forge many international partnerships and collaborations between Australia and other researchers around the world.
"Most recently, it has been a founding partner in the Australian Collaboration for Accelerator Science, which seeks to raise the profile of Australian Accelerator Science in the world community. Hosting IPAC in 2019 would be the flagship event for this collaboration, and would firmly place Australia on the world science map."
The IPAC 2019 bid was won with the help of three regional organisations acting as the international conference committee. The three organisations were the European Physical Society Accelerator Group (EPS-AG); the American Physical Society Division of Physics of Beams (APS-DPB); and the Asian Committee for Future Accelerators (ACFA).
Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) announced in October it is to expand by up to 30 per cent to meet increasing demand for event space.
