Apr 3 – 7, 2017
Pullman Raja Orchid Hotel, Khon Kaen, Thailand
Asia/Bangkok timezone


We shall have several invited talks on various aspects of xenon technology, as well as contributed presentations. In parallel, we hope to attract international companies to exhibit their products of particular relation to xenon technology.

There are many interesting touristic sites in the Khon Kaen area. An excursion will be organized for the participants. If there is sufficient interest we shall organize a ‘spouse’ program with excursions for accompanying persons.

Because of the touristic value of the region, there will be Travel Desk to help organize any additional travel. Particularly the north of Thailand might be of interest for the Songkran (Water Festival, 13 - 15 April) right after the conference. Side trips might include the beaches in the south, e.g. Pattaya, Samui, and Phuket. Most likely you will pass through the capital Bangkok, and some international destinations in Laos, Cambodia, or Vietnam can easily be reached.
