Dear Colleagues,

The Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the Eighteenth International Vacuum Electronics Conference, IVEC 2017, organized and sponsored by the European Space Agency (ESA) with the Technical co‚Äźsponsorship of IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS), that will be held 24 - 26 April 2017 in the city of London, UK. 

IVEC was originally created in 2000 by merging the US Power Tubes Conferences and the European Space Agency TWTA Workshops, and has now expanded to a fully international conference, being held every other year in the USA, and in Europe and Asia alternately every fourth year. After an exciting IVEC in Monterey, USA, in 2016, IVEC’17 returns to Europe to the marvellous city of London (UK). You can learn more about IVEC by visiting, the IEEE EDS Vacuum Electronics Technical Committee website.

IVEC 2017 aims at being an international forum of information and technical discussion between the various players in the field of vacuum electronics: designers, researchers, young and experienced engineers, scientists, device users, manufacturers, operators, government/institutions, academics and, of course, our valuable students. Therefore, we invite you to submit papers with the results of your work and experiences in the field of vacuum electronics. Submissions from all groups are highly encouraged and appreciated. IVEC 2017 will provide a unique place for the exchange of scientific and technical information and will foster collaboration and cooperation in the vacuum electronics domain both at European and worldwide level.

The John R. Pierce Award for Excellence in Vacuum Electronics, and a Best Student Paper Award will be presented at the conference too during the outstanding Gala Dinner Event.

The Conference venue is located in the City of London, a stone's throw from popular Hoxton, Shoreditch and the heart of the financial district, with the most beautiful monuments and tourist attractions within 10 minutes distance by tube. 
The Conference will be complemented by a varied and interesting social program, details of which will be posted on the IVEC 2017 website in the months to come. As in past conferences, the technical meeting and social events will provide a unique opportunity to renew friendships with colleagues and friends, interact with customers, and meet students. 

We look forward to welcoming you to London (UK) in 2017!
