Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We are pleased to invite you to be part of the 8th Euro-Asian Pulsed Power Conference (EAPPC), which in 2020 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 at Bellevue Biarritz Congress Hall in Biarritz, France, between 13th to 17th September 2020. The conference site is located in the immediate vicinity of a most beautiful sandy beach, where you can hear the Atlantic Ocean waves collapsing.

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, the academic institutions and the 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 from the 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 welcome you and your family in Biarritz.

Prof. Laurent Pecastaing

Chairman, EAPPC-BEAMS-MG 2020
