Conferences

AIRAPT sponsors a conference periodically, usually every two years, at a site chosen by the Executive Committee. Proposals to organize a conference are submitted by people who are involved with high-pressure research and have attended several AIRAPT conferences. Presentation of a proposal is made at the meeting of the Executive Committee that is held at each AIRAPT conference. In addition to the fact that people submitting a proposal should be active members of the high-pressure community, other important considerations in the selection process are the expected cost of registration, travel, local hotels and the availability lodging for students. Based primarily on these presentations, the Executive Committee chooses a future site or sites. Attendance at AIRAPT conferences generally varies from 300 to 500.
