IOP Conferences

18 - 22 January 2010
Castle Green Hotel, Lake District, UK
Organised by the IOP Physical Acoustics Group and the French Group de Recherche (GDR) and GAPSUS

We are currently planning the next Anglo French Physical Acoustics Conference.

This will be called GDR-AFPAC and is the 6th conference of the GDR 2501 Research on Ultrasound Propagation for NDT jointly with the 10th Anglo-French Physical Acoustics Conference (AFPAC). As usual this conference is supported by The Physical Acoustics Group of the IOP together with the French society GAPSUS. This year we are also pleased to be supported and sponsored by Groupe de Recherche, (GDR), a network of the French scientific funding agency CNRS now linked to the UK with EPSRC funding.

GDR is a research network, which has been running in France since January 2002, and whose purpose is to link university researchers in ultrasonic Non Destructive Testing (NDT) with each other and with interested industrial organisations.

The dates are 18 - 22 January 2010 and the venue is the Lake District, UK. Because GDR conferences are normally a week long but AFPAC conferences are normally only on three days, the format of the conference will be such that the AFPAC part will be concentrated into the period Monday (18 January) afternoon up to Wednesday (20 January) lunchtime. A social even will take place on Wednesday afternoon with talks that day also in the evening. Everyone, whether GDR or AFPAC attendee is encouraged to stay for the whole week, Arrival on the Sunday afternoon (17 January) will be possible.
