> *_July 8th/9th - 4th International ARIEL Science Workshop_*
> The Advanced Rare IsotopE Laboratory (ARIEL) <http://www.triumf.ca/ariel <http://www.triumf.ca/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 beamline 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 the fourth 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 goals enabled by ARIEL and ISAC; and to identify facility upgrades needed to reach those goals. Special attention will be paid to experiments using fission products from ARIEL, experimental techniques, and upgrades to experimental end stations./
