15-17 MAY
Tokyo, Japan

Scandinova's 9th users' meeting will take place at Courtyard by Marriott Tokyo Station.

ScandiNova’s 9th Annual Users’ Meeting is your chance to exchange experiences and insights with other users of pulsed power solutions. You will also meet ScandiNova experts, attend training sessions and learn all about the latest ScandiNova product updates.

Users from your own industry will naturally be present, but you’ll also have a unique opportunity to get to know counterparts from other application sectors.

ScandiNova’s Users’ Meetings are acknowledged for bringing together leading players from both the research community and industry, as well as for combining inspiring presentations, training sessions, collaborative initiatives and thought-provoking discussions.

The 2019 Users’ Meeting will take place in Tokyo, where ScandiNova recently established its Japanese subsidiary.

KEK Technical tour

The program will include a visit to KEK, one of the world's leading accelerator science research laboratories, using high-energy particle beams and synchrotron light sources to probe the fundamental properties of matter.

Hope to see you in Tokyo!
