Registration now open for the IOP PABG Annual Conference

The IOP Particle Accelerators and Beams Group (PABG) invite the community to a new, in person only, two-day Annual Conference, to take place on July 25 and 26, at the University of Liverpool. This will be the UK’s premier national event in the field of particle accelerators. The scientific programme will feature plenary and keynote talks, panel discussions, parallel sessions and a poster session, to facilitate discussions of all the latest developments in the field.  The conference is intended to bring the entire community together for two days of vibrant physics discussion, knowledge sharing and networking and we encourage participants at all career stages from PhD, through postdoc to senior professors. 

There will be a vibrant social programme with lots of opportunities to meet colleagues familiar and new.  The poster session and drinks reception will take place on 25th July and will be held in the beautiful Victoria Gallery and Museum.  The conference dinner will follow in the stupendous Crypt of Liverpool’s Metropolitian Cathedral, a short walk from the main conference venue and is also included in the registration fee.  There will also be a few others surprises to look out for.

Early registration is recommended, go to <> for more details and to register for attendance and submit abstracts.

Contributions are invited for parallel oral and/or poster presentations. Abstracts should be a maximum of 400 words and submitted online before 4 July 2022.

A prize will be awarded for the best Student or Early Career Scientist poster (open to all current students, or early career scientists in the first three years of paid employment in industry or academia, excluding any career breaks). To be eligible, you must be the lead author and presenting your own work.
