Second Announcement

Dear all,

registration is now open for the

                          SHOGUN workshop

on a next generation gamma-ray spectrometer for in-beam experiments
with fast beams at the RIBF.  The workshop will be held at the RIKEN
Nishina Center, Japan on February 4-5, 2011.  If you are planning to
attend please follow the registration instructions below.

NB: Further information will NOT be broadly distributed,
    but will be sent only to people who have registered.

Two main subjects will be covered in this workshop.  One is the SHOGUN
array itself (mainly on Saturday): beam conditions at the RIBF,
physics opportunities and their requirements on the array
(aux. detectors, coupling to other large devices, like SAMURAI,
SHARAQ), electronics, simulation, etc.

The other subject is LaBr3:Ce and (modern) scintillation detectors in
general (mainly Friday), including their use in nuclear physics and
also in other fields.

Hoping to see you soon at RIKEN.
