This meeting will be in conjunction with the Nuclear Structure '98 Conference which will be held August 10-15 at this location. The primary topic of the Users Meeting will be our plans for constructing the next-generation ISOL Radioactive Ion Beam Facility at the site of the Spallation Neutron Source at ORNL and use of a portion of the 1 GeV proton beam for RIB production.
