The EURISOL User Group has as its goals:

(i) to continuously update and enrich the physics case for EURISOL;
(ii) to contribute to defining the contours and solutions for the EURISOL complex;
(iii) to give a grass roots input to the European strategy for the development of EURISOL.

At a meeting organised during the EURISOL Design Study town meeting (CERN 27-28 November), the EURISOL User Group was inaugurated with support from the Europeany ISOL community and the Design Study collaboration.  Angela Bonaccorso (  has volunteered to be the first Co-ordinator of the User Group with the main task to set up the Group, whose structure will be better defined in the following months through the inputs of the community.

As part of the first goal of the Group, the Physics and Instrumentation task of the EURISOL Design Study (, led by Robert Page (, is looking at specimen experiments (and associated instrumentation) that will be feasible with EURISOL. Experiments in eight sub-fields are being considered which can be found at together with the names of the lead physicists. The community is invited to contact Angela if they wish to contribute ideas (theoretical or experimental) for physics experiments at EURISOL.
The second aim of the User group, to define the EURISOL complex, is achieved through the interaction of potential users and those involved with the technical design of EURISOL. At present the technical design is being realised through the Design Study; the outcome of an initial consultative study led by Nigel Orr ( can be found at  The community should contact Angela if they have particular requirements that might influence the design of the facility.

As part of the third goal, input to European Strategy for the development of EURISOL will be on the agenda of the  EURONS-EURISOL-DS Town meeting that will take place in Helsinki, September 17 to 22, 2007.
The group will organise a workshop early in 2008 to promote the EURISOL physics case and elect a small Board responsible for the organisation of the group.
