Welcome !
The year 2012 will see a number of upcoming events in this Network, culminating in the European Conference on Ion Trapping in September. There are already many ideas for 2013, so if you are volunteering to organize a workshop, please contact us rapidly!
For this newsletter, we rely on your input for news  to diffuse to the ion trapper's community. Please send information to
Enjoy reading !
