Builders shouldn't build alone!
In 2010, Timothy Koeth got together with Mark Yuly of Houghton College and organized a meeting where small cyclotron builders could share their projects. 8 different small cyclotrons, in various states of completion, were represented at the conference. The two-day meeting at Houghton College was a great opportunity for all participants to meet those who had inspired them.
Additional information and pictures are at cyclotronconference.org. Links to the talks are below. We'll post on cyclotrons.net when the next conference will take place.
