We are pleased to announce an international workshop on Astrophysical Big Bangs, which will cover supernovae, supernova remnants, gamma-ray bursts, black holes, neutron stars, and high-energy astrophysics in general.  We are inviting numerous VIPs (very important collaborators and best friends) from around the world to give talks, and both current and past ABBL members are welcome to present their work.  The workshop will be held from November 6th to 10th, but we will also have one more week for free discussion (November 13th-17th).  During this second week, we plan to have casual discussion sessions in the morning and completely free afternoons; we would like to talk with our VIPs and ABBL alumni about ongoing and/or future collaborations.

We can offer desks, chairs, and room(s) for discussion during the discussion week.  We can also arrange lodging for international guests if desired.

Please enjoy your visit to RIKEN, Japan. We are looking forward to seeing you in November!

On behalf of Organizers, Shigehiro Nagataki
