A virtual conference May 3-5, 2021

The National Oceans Sciences Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (NOSAMS) facility at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) is pleased to host the 2021 Symposium of Northeastern Accelerator Personnel (SNEAP).

SNEAP is a community of personnel involved with electrostatic particle accelerators and their use. Founded in 1968, the organization gathers annually to discuss and exchange information to the benefit of all who attend. The topics covered include ion sources, electrostatic and RF accelerators, telemetry and control systems, cryogenic systems, safety issues and many other topics relevant to the operation of small to medium sized electrostatic accelerator laboratories. The meeting format includes submitted papers, laboratory reports, and open discussions.


Registration for the conference is free. Please register here.


We encourage all attendees to participate by presenting a lab report and/or a short talk on their work.

Topics for sessions may include:

  • Lab Reports
  • New Methods and Developments
  • Applications
  • Ion Sources
  • Vacuum Systems
  • Beam Transport and Optics
  • Control Systems
  • Lab Safety and Operation

Suggestions for additional sessions welcome. We also plan to host open discussion sessions during the conference.


Please contact Mark Roberts ( with session ideas, abstracts, or other questions about the conference.
