                 E(U)RICA International Workshop

                       May 23-24, 2011
                RIKEN Nishina Center, Wako, Japan
================================================================

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to announce a meeting to discuss the physics opportunities
arising from the Euroball RIKEN Cluster Array (E(U)RICA), pending a
later decision by the GAMMAPOOL steering committee to host the Cluster
detectors at RIKEN. The workshop will be held at the RIKEN Nishina Center,
Japan on May 23-24.

After a very successful period of RISING campaigns at GSI in the years
2003 to 2009 and merging into PRESPEC, 15 Euroball Cluster detectors
become available from the year 2012. At the same time, the RIBF at RIKEN
has developed the capability to deliver the world's strongest radioactive
ion beams produced by BigRIPS from in-flight separation after fragmentation
and fission reactions. Therefore, the idea of coupling both devices for
experimental campaigns starting in the beginning of next year is evident.

The main objective for this first E(U)RICA workshop is the elaboration of
physics cases for stopped beam campaigns employing the techniques of
isomer and beta-delayed gamma-ray spectroscopy. It is anticipated that the
presentations and discussions will lead into the submission of scientific
proposals for the RIBF NP-PAC at the end of this year. Further topics to be
discussed during the workshop include the formation and organization of
the collaboration, the use of ancillary detectors, and the potential for
sequel campaigns such as fast beams, degraded beams, and g-factor
measurements.

Technical information about the former RISING stopped beam configuration
can be found here:

A description of the BigRIPS fragment separator is given on the following
website:

Details on the workshop including registration information, lodging
possibilities, and access guides will be announced very shortly.
We are looking forward to seeing you at RIKEN.

With best regards,
Shunji Nishimura, Pieter Doornenbal, and Tohru Motobayashi
