Dear Colleague,

This is the second announcement for the "2nd International ARIEL Science 
Workshop" on July 10th and 11th, 2012 at TRIUMF.The workshop will start 
one day after the TRIUMF Users' Group annual general meeting and a day 
before the Subatomic Physics EEC meeting. The Advanced Rare IsotopE 
Laboratory (ARIEL) <> will be TRIUMF's 
flagship facility, expanding Canada's capabilities to produce and study 
isotopes for science and medicine. In addition to the e-linac, which is 
already funded, the ARIEL project includes a second proton beam line for 
rare isotope production. Together with the existing proton target for 
ISAC, the parallel operation of 3 RIB production targets at TRIUMF will 
enable a broad spectrum of world-class science.

The scope of this second ARIEL Science Workshop is: to inform the 
international scientific community of the capabilities of ARIEL and 
ISAC; to highlight technical progress made on various aspects of the 
project; to identify unique and world-leading scientific opportunities 
for ARIEL and ISAC in all phases of the ARIEL project, particularly for 
the materials science and nuclear physics programs; and to describe the 
construction and funding status as well as possibly refining the planned 
implementation scenario. Special attention will be paid to early 
implementation of a 9Be target for 8Li production via electron-driven 
photodisintegration and the use of the ARIEL separator and charge 
breeder with RIBs from ISAC before the ARIEL target stations are 
completed. Confirmed invited speakers include Corina Andreoiu (Simon 
Fraser University), Ritu Kanungo (Saint Mary's University), Rob Kiefl 
(University of British Columbia), Gang Li (McGill University), and Lia 
Merminga (TRIUMF).

We invite you to participate in this informal workshop. Please navigate

register; feel free to contact the members of the organizing committee 
if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver 
this summer.
