A novel concept of a high luminosity hadron collider is proposed. This would be a typical application of an induction synchrotron being newly developed. Extremely long bunches, referred to as superbunches, are generated by a multibunch stacking method employing barrier buckets at the injection into the collider and are accelerated with a step voltage induced in the induction gaps. Superbunches intersect with each other, yielding a luminosity of more than [Formula presented]. A combination of vertical crossing and horizontal crossing must be employed in order to avoid any significant beam-beam tune shift.
