AMS-15 News 

Be sure to check here for any upcoming information


With the continuing uncertainty in global affairs because of COVID-19, we have unfortunately decided that the best option in order to ensure a successful AMS-15 conference is to postpone AMS-15 to 2021.  We have managed to secure the same venue, UNSW Scientia, for early September 2021, effectively a calendar year shift.

In addition, discussions were held with Drs Elisabetta Boaretto and Lior Regev, conveners of the 24th International Radiocarbon Conference, which was to be held in March 2021, with Dr Andrzej Rakowski, convener of the 3rd Radiocarbon and Environment conference, which was to be held 6-10 July 2020, and with Prof Tom Higham, convener of the Radiocarbon and Diet conference, which was to be held 14-17 September 2020.

The unanimous decision for these 3 events is to shift them a full calendar year and further announcements will be made in due course for each event.

Discussions with Zurich are still on-going concerning the 10th Radiocarbon and Archaeology Conference, but we expect it will either be combined with another meeting, or held in 2023. Please monitor the Radiocarbon website or the meeting website for updates.

To summarise, in chronological order:

  • 3rd Radiocarbon and Environment conference, (Gliwice, Poland): 5-9 July 2021.
  • AMS-15 (Sydney, Australia): early September 2021.
  • 3rd Radiocarbon and Diet conference (Oxford, UK): 13-16 September 2021.
  • 24th International Radiocarbon conference (Israel): March 2022 (or to the second half of 2022). Further details will be announced on the Radiocarbon-24 website and via email.
  • 10th Radiocarbon and Archaeology conference (Zurich, Switzerland):  (further details to be announced)


The 15th International Conference on Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS-15) takes place in the harbour city of Sydney, Australia, in September, 2021. The conference will take place at John Niland Scientia, located on the Kensington campus of the University of New South Wales (UNSW).

We look forward to bringing the AMS global community together for a stimulating and exciting scientific program with an Australian flavour. We hope you will also get to see some of the world famous tourist sites across Australia and enjoy the world-class hospitality offered by Sydney.

Our AMS-15 conference will be kicked off with a welcome reception in September and includes a conference dinner later in  September, as well as an optional half-day tour of ANSTO’s Centre for Accelerator Science (CAS) AMS facility.

Abstract submission and registration is now open here.

On behalf of ANSTO’s AMS team, welcome to Sydney!
