Thank you to everybody who helped make IVEC-IVESC 2012 a successful conference! We had over 300 papers submitted by 350 registered attendees who presented a wide range of technical material, exchanged ideas, and caught up with old friends. I hope everybody enjoyed the conference as much as I did.

IVEC moves on to Paris in 2013, a venue full of charm and history, and IVESC moves to St. Petersburg, Russia, known for its fountains and palaces, in two years for IVESC 2014. Please plan to come. Also, for all of the latest happenings in the Vacuum Electronics community, definitely bookmark the web site!
