CNS-RIKEN Joint Symposium

International Symposium on Frontier of Gamma-ray Spectroscopy (Gamma11)
June 30 - July 2, 2011 RIKEN, Wako, Saitama, Japan

                             Second Circular

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to inform you that the International Symposium on
"Frontier of Gamma-ray Spectroscopy (gamma11)" is scheduled to take place
at RIKEN Wako campus in Saitama (Japan) on June 30 - July 2, 2011.
This symposium is co-hosted by the Center for Nuclear Study of the
University of Tokyo (CNS) and the RIKEN Nishina Center.  This is the
fourth meeting in a series of CNS-RIKEN Joint symposium on frontier of
gamma-ray spectroscopy following the last meeting held in 2008 (gamma08).
The purpose of the symposium is to discuss recent progresses and future
perspectives of gamma-ray spectroscopy and recent developments of advanced
gamma-ray detectors. It is hoped that the symposium aims to encourage
international cooperation and stimulate physicists in the field of
nuclear structure studies. Future collaboration for the experimental
programs at RIBF will be discussed.

The symposium will start in the morning of June 30 and end in the afternoon
of July 2.
It will be held in the Conference Room of RIBF Building in RIKEN.

Topics to be discussed in the symposium are:
* Development of detectors and experimental methods
* Collectivities and shell effects in neutron/proton-rich nuclei
* Shell structure and stability of very heavy nuclei
* Exotic deformation / new collective motion at low and high spin
* Single particle motion in isomeric states

A list of invited speakers will be put on the web soon.
