RIBF Week 2018 is a 5-day long meeting aimed at bringing together a variety of RIBF users to discuss the present status of experiments and generate collaborative efforts for future physics opportunities at the RIBF. To achieve these aims, the RIBF week comprises the following consecutively run events:

3/9-4/9: SAMURAI Workshop,

5/9-6/9: RIBF Users Meeting,

6/9-7/9: SUNFLOWER Workshop.

A dinner shall be held jointly for all three events on the 5th of September at the main canteen of the RIKEN Wako-shi campus. The dinner fee is 2,000 JPY. Those attending the dinner are requested to pay the fee on cash on Wednesday. 

Attendees of RIBF Week are encouraged to take the opportunity to discuss possible inter-group collaborative efforts.

RIBF Users Meeting

The RIBF Users Meeting 2018 organized by the Users Executive Committee will take place on Sep. 5-6.
The meeting will comprise invited overview contributions from experimental and theoretical activities related to the RIBF. Status and future planing of the accelerator facilities will be discussed as well.
The RIBF users group thesis award lectures and award ceremony will be held on Wednesday afternoon.

The registration fee of RIBF Users meeting is 1,000 JPY, to be paid in cash on Wednesday.  

SAMURAI Workshop

The SAMURAI International Collaboration Workshop will be held on September  3-4, 2018. The main aim of the workshop is to summarize the current status of SAMURAI spectrometer, to exchange information on future experimental plans at SAMURAI, and to shape them into proposals for next NP-PAC meetings. Those who are planning to submit a proposal are strongly encouraged to give a presentation at the workshop as well as to submit a pre-proposal to the SAMURAI collaboration. The format is found in: http://ribf.riken.jp/SAMURAI/Collaboration/index.php?CallForProposal


The 7th SUNFLOWER workshop will take place on  September 6-7, 2018. The meeting's main purpose is to discuss the status and future physics opportunities of in-beam gamma-ray spectroscopy experiments at the RIBF. Participants are encouraged to present reports on the status of past in-beam gamma-ray spectroscopy experiments employing 48Ca, 70Zn, 124Xe, and 238U primary beams. A dedicated session on the SEASTAR project will be held.
Proponents intending to submit a SUNFLOWER proposal to the next RIBF Nuclear Physics Program Advisory Committee, are encouraged to attend the workshop and present their proposal.
