In February 1959, a conference on sector‐focusing cyclotrons was held at Sea Island, Ga., under the joint sponsorship of the National Academy of Sciences‐National Research Council and the American Physical Society. Eighty‐six specialists attended from six countries and thirty‐nine institutions in Europe and America. Theory, orbit computation, and tentative designs were discussed, and the participants parted with a general feeling of both the feasibility and the desirability of accelerators of this kind.
