The Covid-19 sanitary situation in France is evolving.

We inform you that a valid health pass will be required at the entrance of the conference.

Proofs can be presented in paper or digital format.

The following are the 3 possible types of valid health proof:

  • Proof of EU-recognized vaccination (full vaccination cycle + time required for antibody development, check the time required based on your vaccine).
  • Proof of negative RT-PCR or antigenic test less than 48 hours old at the time of inspection and renewed every 48 hours. (Sel-tests not allowed)
  • Proof of Recovery (positive RT-PCR or antigenic test of more than 15 days and less than 6 months).

Only digital or original paper health pass will be accepted, pictures or images are not eligible. It is recommended to bring the original paper version in case the digital format does not work.

Barrier measures are still in place even with the health pass and wearing a mask is still mandatory indoors.

We invite you to consult the website of the French Embassy of your country or your travel agency in order to know the conditions of entry on the French territory (without complete vaccination: possible isolation from 7 to 10 days for the persons coming from countries classified in orange or red zone, PCR test of less than 24h or 48h according to the zone,…) and all the information concerning the health pass.

Certificate of international travel : 

Online participation will allow both participation and work presentation.

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We are pleased to invite you to be part of the 8th Euro-Asian Pulsed Power Conference (EAPPC), which in 2021 will be jointly organized with the 23rd International Conference on High-Power Particle Beams (BEAMS) and the 17th International Conference on Megagauss Magnetic Field Generation and Related Topics (MG-XVII).

The EAPPC-BEAMS-MG conference will be held in Bellevue Biarritz Congress Hall in Biarritz, France, between the 29th of August to the 2nd of September 2021. The conference site is located in the immediate vicinity of the most beautiful sandy beach, where thesound of Atlantic Ocean waves collapsing is gently captured by yours ears.

This important international event represents a major forum for the scientists and engineers in the pulsed power physics and technology domain, where a large number of topics will be discussed such as generators and components, pulsed power applications, high power microwaves and RF sources, high-energy density physics and technology, particle beam technology, ultrahigh magnetic field generation and applications, explosively-driven pulsed power and many others. The conference will provide an up-to-date review of the most recent achievements, together with an opportunity for exchanging scientific and technical information between industry, academic institutions and major research organizations across a broad range of current and emerging research areas.

During the conference, several important applications and their corresponding commercial opportunities will be discussed such as: the reduction of pollutants from fossil fuels, application of pulsed plasma and electric field techniques for water treatment, food sterilization and cancer treatment, novel pulsed techniques for separating water from oil, the newest results related to fusion physics and technology developed from major national research centers and many others.

The specific location of Biarritz, close to the Spanish border and within the heart of the famous Basque country, will provide plenty of side activities related to the Atlantic Ocean seaside, Pyrenees mountains, visits to historical monuments, etc., all accompanied of course by the exceptionally good local food and wine…

We are looking forward to welcoming you and your family to Biarritz.
