What is Accelerating News?

A newsletter for the accelerator community

ISSN: 2296-6536

The publication highlights news and results from the biggest accelerator research and development projects, as well as interesting stories on other accelerator applications. The newsletter also announces and reports on upcoming accelerator research conferences and events. Accelerating News is published four times a year.

We welcome new ideas and contributions to Accelerating News. If you would like to contribute, this is what we are looking for:

Editorial Guidelines

  • Recent developments in accelerator physics
  • Reports on events for the accelerator community
  • Communication and outreach activities

Our articles should be 500-700 words, provide the opportunity to find out more with 'Read more’ resources, be accompanied of 1-2 high-resolution pictures, as well as a title, teaser, image caption and credit, and sub-sections. The level of technical details should be medium to high level.


Accelerating News aims to provide complete and up-to-date information. However, it does not guarantee that all facts are beyond inadvertent errors, and disclaims all liability from the use of the published information.

Copyright and reprints

News media are welcome to reprint news from Accelerating News, acknowledging the newsletter and the author of the piece, including a web link to our website: Accelerating News content is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial 3.0 License.

Do you know our story?

A newsletter that grew beyond its origin

One way many projects found to keep the project communities informed of any developments was to set up an internal newsletter. In 2009, this was also true for FP7 project EuCARD and its newsletter Accelerating News. The first issue of the newsletter was sent in 2009 to 200 project participants. In 2012, Accelerating News grew beyond the original project and it became a means of communication directed at the large accelerator community.
