# [RIBF-ULIC-Symposium-007] E(U)RICA International Workshop

RIKEN Nishina Center
Asia/Tokyo timezone

## 2nd Announcement

Dear all,

the registration for the

================================================================
E(U)RICA International Workshop

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

is now open. Please note that due the unavailability of a number of
interested participants at the previously given dates, we have decided
to change the dates. We are sorry for any inconveniences caused by this
date change. If you plan to attend the meeting, please follow the
registration instructions given below.

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

The primary objective of this workshop is to bring the nuclear structure
community together in order to establish the collaboration and to define and
decide on the scientific program arising from coupling the Cluster
detectors with the BigRIPS fragment separator. We would like to focus
on experiments for a stopped beam configuration employing the techniques
of isomer and beta-delayed gamma-ray spectroscopy. The presented ideas and
discussions are expected to lead into scientific proposals for the RIBF NP-PAC
at the end of this year. In case there is an interest by the community for
other techniques, these ideas are welcome to be presented and discussed during
the workshop.

A nice description of the former RISING stopped beam configuration can be
found in:

The foreseen location of the E(U)RICA spectrometer is at the F11 focal point
after the BigRIPS and ZeroDegree spectrometers. Expected and achieved RIBF
accelerator intensities are given on the web-page:

For the workshop it is not necessary to specify accurate numbers for
the anticipated gamma-ray yield, but rough estimations can be very helpful
in the discussions. Thus, if you want/need to make detailed LISE++

One possible ancillary detector for beta-delayed gamma-ray decay studies is
described in:

We are looking forward to seeing you at RIKEN.

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

Accommodation
--------------

We have reserved a limited amount of 6 guest rooms at the Nishina Lodge
(Building 18 on the RIKEN map) and 10 guest rooms in the International
House H (Building 5 on the RIKEN map) from May 22nd to May 25th.
If you wish to stay at the Nishina Lodge or the International House, please
indicate it on the Registration page. The prices are 3,300 or
2,500 yen per night, respectively.

Depending on the vacancy, it may be possible to stay longer than the
above dates. In such a case, please send an email to euroball@riken.jp
and we will try to extend the reservation for you.

If you prefer to stay closer to the Wakoshi-station, there are two
possibilities. The 'Toyoko Inn' for which you can make a reservation
yourself on the web page in English:

The other option is the 'Super Hotel', which is new and also very
close to the station:

http://www.superhoteljapan.com/en/s-hotels/wako.html

Their web page is in English, but the reservation page seems to be in
Japanese only.

If you don't speak Japanese, please try the first hotel (Toyoko Inn)
