Electrostatic particle accelerators are used in a number of fields, such as nuclear physics, atomic physics, materials science, accelerator mass spectrometry, environmental science and even art. The annual SNEAP meetings act as a medium for exchanging experiences in the operation of electrostatic particle accelerators. At the 31st SNEAP meeting, there were 76 delegates from 19 countries representing 47 laboratories. Fourteen papers dealt both with the operating status and new developments at low energy linear accelerator laboratories in Australia, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Russia and the USA. Additionally, laboratories from Austria, Germany and Sweden introduced the function of their accelerators in high quality accelerator mass spectrometry, and four laboratories from Germany, Japan and the USA demonstrated interesting applications of electrostatic particle accelerators. Finally, 17 laboratories presented their annual reports. This volume is taken from these proceedings.
