18th International Conference on Positron Annihilation

August 19-24, 2018 | Orlando, USA

Please register to attend talks on positron annihilation spectroscopy topics, to say hello to colleagues in person, and visit the Kennedy Space Center as part of your conference registration. Hopefully we'll see a rocket launch while we're there!

Apart from science you'll have plenty of time to relax, meet like-minded people, and to enjoy Florida.

The Abstract template (Microsoft Word) is available for you reference.

Abstract Submission Registration and Payment

The goal of the conference is to provide a platform for positron researchers from all over the world to present their latest research results, communicate new ideas with colleagues face to face, and to find partners for future collaboration. The conference proceedings will be published in a peer review journal, and the official language of the conference will be English.

Positron School

Positron school will be held on August 19 from 8AM to 6PM prior to our first conference gathering that evening. Since we start early it is reasonable to arrive to Orlando a day in advance on August 18.

School fee is $75. Payment workwlow will be posted here soon.

The goal of the school is to introduce the basics of the positron techniques to scientists from interdisciplinary areas as well as to students and young scientists in positron fields.
