You have reached the unofficial web page for the

Philips Nuclear User Group 2004 meeting




The 2004 user group took place at the Ramada Jarvis Hotel - Bingley - Bradford on 4 and 5 March 2004

I think the user group this year was particularly successful, and credit for that must go to all of you, the presenters, the audience, Philips and a special thanks to Dr Andrew Kelion for his fascinating keynote address.

I really enjoy the informality of the UGM compared with scientific meetings. The UGM belongs to you all and depends completely on you. Right now I think you're doing pretty well.

Helen Bailey at Stafford has kindly stepped forward to host the meeting next year (2005), I hope you will give her even more support than you did me.
