Call for Participation
We would like to invite you to join the International Symposium on
Pulsed Neutron and Muon Sciences at J-PARC 2008 (IPS 08) organized by
J-PARC center, which will be held on March 5-7, 2008 in Mito, Japan.
Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex, J-PARC, is an
interdisciplinary facility using secondary particles produced by the
world highest pulsed proton beams, and it is scheduled to deliver the
first proton beam to the Materials and Life science experimental
Facility (MLF) in May, 2008.  The symposium will focus on the high
intensity pulsed spallation neutron and muon sources at MLF, in which
the first user program will begin in J-PARC.  IPS08 will provide an
opportunity to introduce the performance of J-PARC and other facilities
in the world, and discuss prospective sciences and technologies
performed in those facilities.

Symposium Venue
The symposium will be held at the "Ibarakiken Shichouson Kaikan" which
is next to the Ibaraki Prefectural Government's Buildings in Mito city.
