The Accelerator Operations Group at ANSTO is pleased to host the 7th Accelerator Technology Forum (ATF) from 20 - 23 May 2014 at the Rydges Hotel, Cronulla NSW.


The ATF is an important platform for accelerator technicians and engineers from Australia, New Zealand and neighbouring regions to meet, discuss and exchange information relevant to maintenance, operation and management of accelerators and associated facilities.

We encourage participation from experienced and non-experienced technical and engineering personnel working in the field of accelerators. We also welcome non-accelerator personnel that share similar interests and experiences. We look forward to seeing you at the event.

About the Forum

The first Accelerator Technology Forum was hosted by the AAEC (Australian Atomic Energy Commission, now ANSTO) in August 1984. Up until then, there were no meetings within Australia that brought together technical and engineering personnel who operated accelerator facilities.
Since then, forums have been held at the Australian National University and University of Melbourne. In 2006, we were fortunate to have significant international attendance at the forum when it was co-hosted with the 40th Symposium of North Eastern Accelerator Personnel (SNEAP) at ANSTO and ANU.
The upcoming forum will be the 7th since its inception and interest continues to expand as accelerator facilities adapt to new technologies, regulations and changing research directions. 
Event hosts: ANSTO & ACAS
Diamond Sponsors: Buckley Systems Ltd, John Morris Scientific and Swagelok
