TSUKUBA, JAPAN-- Four hundred scientists and engineers from 15 countries met here last week for the first Asian Particle Accelerator Conference in order to pool their expertise and resources in search of new knowledge and applications in physics, materials science, and biomedical research. Organizers say the Asian investment in accelerators has reached the point at which every country can benefit from regional cooperation; they are hoping to make this conference the Asian counterpart to long-standing accelerator conferences in North America and Europe.
