Dear Neutron Scientists in the world,

It is our great pleasure to announce a series of International
Symposia related to Neutron Scattering, to be held in October 2003.


Second Circular of

International Symposium on Pulsed Neutron Science and Instruments
     Oct 27 - 30, 2003 in Tsukuba, Japan

UK-Japan Neutron Science Workshop
     Oct 31 - Nov 1, 2003 in Izura SPA (Pacific seaside), Japan
     (participant will be limited to 60)

Scope of the symposia

          This is an international symposium to discuss science and
instruments using pulsed neutrons. Pulsed neutron user facilities
(KENS, IPNS, LANSCE, ISIS) have been used since the 1980s and the
pulsed neutron scattering technique has become an indispensable tool
for studying solid state physics, materials science, bio-physics,
polymer science and even earth science. Two 1MW class facilities,
SNS and J-PARC-JSNS, are now under construction; the second target
station at ISIS has been recently approved and the ESS project is
under consideration. These new sources will give us a one or two
order of magnitude higher neutron peak flux, giving an un-experienced
new stage in science with neutrons in 5 years or so. Therefore, it
is an appropriate time to review the scientific results done so far by
using pulsed neutrons, identify future opportunities in science with
the new sources and to discuss the instruments that will realize this
scientific achievement.

          The symposium session includes a plenary session, oral
sessions, poster session, instrument workshops and informal working
sessions. The symposium will be closed with a summary of the workshops
and the working sessions.

          A satellite workshop on the UK-Japan collaboration, which
has led to the development of innovative instruments
(i.e. MARI and MAPS), will follow the symposium. This workshop is
open for any who wish to join.
