The 10th International Workshop on Neutrino Beams and Instrumentation (NBI2017) will be held at J-PARC, Tokai, Japan from September 18 to 22, 2017. The workshop was initiated at KEK in 1999 when K2K, the first long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment, started its operation; it has since rotated between KEK/J-PARC, CERN, and Fermilab, givng unique opportunities for physicists and engineers working on conventional neutrino beams, to meet together and to discuss intensively their equipments in operating and planned facilities.
The 10th NBI will be jointly organized with 4th collaboration meeting of RaDIATE - Radiation Damage In Accelerator Target Environments. As conventional neutrino beam facilities become increasingly powerful, there is a pressing need to better understand and predict the radiation response of structural window and target materials. The research is crucial for other target facilities utilizing high-intensity proton beams, like spallation neutron sources, muon sources, hadron experiments, and accelerator-driven transmutation facilities.
The workshop will be started with NBI-specific sessions during 18 to 20 morning. On 20 afternoon, a tour to J-PARC facilities and Post-Irradiation Examination facilities at JAEA will be organized for both NBI and RaDIATE colleagues. On 21, common sessions for NBI and RaDIATE will be scheduld, and on 22 closed sessions specific for RaDIATE collaboration will be organized.
