2.2. Conference Sponsorship

  • PANIC05 (Santa Fe, NM, October 24-28, 2005) Type A
    • C12 decided to support this conference for 2005.
    • Concerns were expressed about US Visa issues.
  • INPC2007 (International Nuclear Physics Conference 2007) Type A
    • C12 decided the location of INPC2007 to Japan (most likely Tokyo).

Feature: Many facilities in the world.

Regional usage rather than world-wide usage.

a) Second category: 1) Relativistic Heavy Ion Beam Facilities

2) Electron Beam Facilities

3) Kaon Factories

4) Underground Laboratories

Feature: A few facilities in the world.

World-wide usage.

  • C12 Commission decided to support the continuation of activities of this Ad Hoc Committee.

4. Other Issues
