Graziano Fortuna (1949-2019)

April 22, 2019 on 7:02 pm | In Eurisol user group news, User Group | No Comments

We are sorry to inform the community of the untimely passing away of Graziano Fortuna. Graziano played a major role in the development of the EURISOL concept. He led the preparation of the application for the EURISOL Design Study and was the coordinator of the contract until the summer of 2006 when he was called to other occupations at INFN in Rome. He remained an active member of the management board of EURISOL DS until its conclusion in 2009. His technical mastery of accelerator physics combined with his intimate knowledge of the European Nuclear Physics scene was instrumental in the success of the Design Study. He will be sorely missed by our community.

EURISOL TM, Pisa 2-4 July 2018

The Town Meeting is planned to discuss and disseminate the recent progress, the on-going physics and instrumentation developments, and the specific needs and future plans of the EURISOL community, recently expressed also by the EURISOL Distributed Facility initiative.

The advancement of the EURISOL concept, with the long-term goal to build a dedicated facility, needs special attention and requires activities to help constantly update the scientific case, shape the community, and strengthen the synergies with other facilities. For these reasons within the ENSAR2 project, part of the European framework HORIZON 2020, a JRA - EURISOL work package exists and EURISOL networking activities are included in the NUSPRASEN network.

The meeting will consist of invited talks and contributed posters and a round table.
The webpage of the conference is Pisa EURISOL Town Meeting. where you can also find the final Programme.

The EURISOL Town Meeting report constitutes one of the Deliverables of the WP2 NUSPRASEN of ENSAR2. For this reason, speakers and presenters of posters will be asked to provide a short account of their presentations (4 and 2 pages respectively).

The registration deadline is June 25th 2018. There is no registration fee.
The poster abstract submission deadline is June 22nd 2018 and acceptance will be notified by June 24th. Thanks to a recent local financial support we are able to offer a number of grants up to 500euro each. They are for young participants presenting a poster dealing with the Physics and Instrumentation at any ISOL facility. Applications via email to bonac@df.unipi.it

The meeting location is
INFN - Pisa
Bldg. C - ground floor. Room: Aula 131

We expect to have very interesting and lively discussions on EURISOL and particularly on the EURISOL DF project and are looking forward to welcoming you in Pisa,

Minutes of the UEC meeting Friday 6th May 2016 h 10:00-11:30

June 13, 2016 on 5:36 pm | In Eurisol user group news, User Executive Committee, User Group | No Comments

Present (all by Skype): Dieter Ackermann, Bertram Blank, Angela Bonaccorso, Lidia Ferreira, Ari Jokinen, Marek Lewitowicz. Excused: Hans Fynbo, Adam Maj, Paddy Regan.

Agenda: Elections of a new UEC.

The last elections took place on July 2010. New elections should have taken place during the summer 2012 but were postponed because of the Lisbon and Krakow topical meeting organization, October 2012 and July 2013 respectively and then the proximity with the end of the ENSAR contract and the need to write the final report (deliverable of the project April 2014).

After the beginning of the ENSAR2 contract (March 2016) it is decided to held new elections.

Members elected last time (18 July 2010) were Lidia Ferreira, Hans Fynbo, Adam Maj, Paddy Regan. Lidia Ferreira and Adam Maj have agreed on being candidates again to ensure some continuity.

Names of possible new candidates are proposed and the members decide to contact them informally while a message will be sent to the EURISOL UG mailing list to call for candidatures.

ADDENDUM to the minutes.

An AMENDMENT to the CHARTER is proposed by Y.Blumenfeld and C. Scheidenberger on 12th May 2016:? “A representative of the NUSPRASEN network of ENSAR2 is ex-officio member of the UEC without voting rights for the duration of the ENSAR2 contract.”

with the justification that

“The EURISOL User Group activities will be integrated into the activities of the NUSPRASEN network of ENSAR2. This will allow (partial) funding of the UEC activities through ENSAR2. It is therefore important that close interaction be maintained between the UEC and NUSPRASEN.”

Approved on 19th May 2016 by two thirds of the UEC: D. Ackermann, B. Blank, A. Bonaccorso, L. Ferreira, M. Lewitowicz, A. Maj.

H. Fymbo, A. Jokinen, P. Regan, abstained.
