We are pleased to announce that the 3rd J-PARC symposium (J-PARC2019) will be held on September 23-26, 2019 in Tsukuba, Japan. This is the first circular of the symposium.
The J-PARC facility started its operation of neutron beam facility in May 2008, muon facility in September 2008, hadron facility in February, 2009, and neutrino facility in April, 2009. We would like to take this opportunity to collectively discuss the results from a decade of J-PARC operation together with the achievements from relevant facilities all over the world for the future direction of the science. We also would like to celebrate the 10-th anniversary of J-PARC operation on this occasion.
The scientific program includes particle and nuclear physics, material and life science, accelerator science, target and related technologies, and R&D for nuclear transmutation. The symposium program consists of plenary, parallel, and poster sessions.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Tsukuba in 2019!
