11. Summer School and
Workshop on Radioactive Ion Beam Production Targets
and Ion Sources to be held in May 2005
(H. K. Carter)
The first summer school and workshop in the U.S. on "Radioactive Ion Beam Production - Targets and Ion Sources." will take place May 23-25, 2005, followed by a workshop on the same topic on May 26-27, 2005. Both will be held at the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility (HRIBF) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
The purpose of the Summer School is to introduce young researchers in various disciplines to the research opportunities and challenges in this important and growing field. Following the school a workshop will be held for experts in the field to focus on a few current "problem beams". The summer school students will be encouraged to participate in the workshop.
The format of the school will be a half day of lectures from experts in the field followed by a half day of hands-on experiments using the HRIBF facilities. The workshop following the school will focus on the production of new beams that are presently not available, as well as improving existing beams in intensity and purity. The workshop will consist of presentations followed by discussions that will take advantage of the various viewpoints of the cross-discipline audience.
Advanced undergraduates through early post-doctoral researchers are strongly encouraged to apply. The workshop is intended for all researchers interested in developing radioactive ion beams.
Students accepted for the school will be provided with partial travel support and local expenses for the period of May 23-28.

Applications for the Summer School must be received by March 1, 2005.
