Many more details can be found at the main conference web pages.

The conference series aims to bring together leaders in the field of instrumentation across a wide range of disciplines with younger members of this community and key industrial partners. All oral sessions are plenary and organised by topic with keynote speakers and submitted contributions in each area. There is also a two day programme of industrial exhibitions followed by a two day poster contributions programme organised in parallel with special facilities for online participation for those unable to travel to Birmingham.

Please see for much more information including the dates for registration and the organisation of the conference, for which we are offering a hybrid model (encouraging in-person attendance where possible but endeavouring to also offer a rich online experience for those only able to attend remotely).

We very much look forward to seeing you at the PSD12 conference.
