North American Workshop on Beta-delayed neutron emission
This workshop is intended to present and coordinate experimental, theoretical and evaluation efforts on beta-delayed neutron emission process in the US and Canada, which is also related to the IAEA Coordinated Research Project (CRP). During this topical workshop, the current and anticipated research in North American laboratories will be reviewed prior to the first 2013 CRP meeting in Vienna (Austria).

In October 2011, the IAEA Nuclear Data Section in Vienna hosted a Consultants' meeting on "Beta-delayed neutron emission evaluation" and initiated work towards the IAEA "Coordinated Research project" (CRP). The report is now available here. In May 2012, the McMaster University (Hamilton, Canada) hosted a meeting during the preparation phase of the CRP.

The 2013 Oak Ridge workshop will also host a satellite meeting on beta-delayed neutron emission experiments at TRIUMF.

The workshop will be held at the Joint Institute for Heavy Ion Research (JIHIR) with an easy access to the ORNL Physics Division experimental facilities.

The scientific program is now available.

Symposium on Physics, Energy, Computing, and Cities (SPECC-2012)
We are pleased to announce a Symposium on Physics, Energy, Computing, and Cities (SPECC-2012) to be held in New York City on December 17-18, 2012. The purpose of this meeting is "to bring together scientists from several areas to discuss large-scale science, technology, and computational endeavors that have had substantial impacts ranging from fundamental knowledge of how the universe works, to a practical understanding of our energy systems and the human interaction with them."
