23rd Conference on Application of Accelerators in Research and Industry

The Conference on Application of Accelerators in Research and Industry (CAARI – 2014), supported by University of North Texas, Sandia National Laboratories, and Los Alamos National Laboratory, will be held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas, USA on May 25-30, 2014.

This will be the 23rd International conference in the biennial series that began in 1968 as a Conference on the Use of Small Accelerators for Teaching and Research by Jerry Duggan, while he was a staff member at Oak Ridge Associated Universities. In 1974, it later became known as the International Conference on the Application of Accelerators in Research and Industry (CAARI), previously held in Denton and Fort Worth, TX.

The CAARI Conference series is unique in that it brings together scientists, engineers, professors, physicians and students from all over the world who use particle accelerators in their research and industrial applications. Each year the Topic Areas are reviewed and updated to reflect current research interests. In 2014, the CAARI Conference can be considered a collection of symposia for the following areas:

  • Accelerator Technology and Facilities (ATF)
  • Atomic and Molecular Physics (AMP)
  • Homeland Security and Defense Applications (HSD)
  • Ion Beam Analysis (IBA)
  • Ion Beam Modifications (IBM)
  • Medical Applications (MA)
  • Nuclear-Based Analysis (NBA)
  • Nuclear Physics (NP)
  • NanoScience & Technology (NST)
  • Plenary Sessions (PS)
  • Radiation Effects (RE)
  • Teaching with Accelerators (TA)
