Community Meetings

UK Plasma Accelerator Steering Committee (PWASC)

1st Community Meeting 

Institute of Physics, 80 Portland Place, London W1B1NT

09:30 - 17:00, 26th January 2018

 

The Plasma Accelerator Steering Committee is developing a detailed roadmap of the research activity of the UK in this area. The objectives of this first Community Meeting are to present a draft of this roadmap, to receive feedback on it, and to identify topics for potential interdisciplinary and collaborative research.

The meeting will be of interest to those working on the development or applications of both conventional and plasma accelerators.

The preliminary programme of the meeting (subject to change) is given below.

Information on how to register for this meeting will be provided here soon!
