The 2nd international workshop on techniques, methods and instrumentation for searches of a neutron electric dipole moment will be held in Ascona, Switzerland, from Sunday, November 2nd to Thursday, November 6th, 2014. It is organized by the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI), the ETH of Zurich, the Institut Laue Langevin, Grenoble and the Rutherford Appelton Laboratory, Oxford.

The biannual workshop gives researchers from around the world the opportunity to present in detail and with a special focus on experimental techniques and methods their present status for a search of the neutron electric dipole moment. Ample time for discussion will generate in depth understanding of common challenges for all next generation experiments.

The workshop will consist of invited and contributed talks and poster sessions.

nEDM2014 is the second workshop, held in the spirit of the 2012 meeting at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennesse, United States of America.
