Keynote speaker:

Dr. Peach has a research and administrative career that began at the University of Edinburgh with Bachelor's and Ph.D. degrees in Physics. Following a very successful career as a full-time academic and researcher at the University of Edinburgh, he served as Deputy Leader of the Experimental Physics division at CERN for three years after which he was, for eight years, the Director of Particle Physics at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the UK.

When he was about to retire, he was persuaded to join Oxford University to become Director of the newly formed John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science to create an internationally competitive accelerator science center. While he was at Oxford, he also created the Particle Therapy Cancer Research Institute at the University of Oxford, and became its co-Director.
