The 25th anniversary of the discovery of significant neutron halo
takes place this year. As a celebration of this occasion,
the Halo2010 Symposium will be held on the 6th-9th
of December, 2010 by the Center for Nuclear Study (CNS),
the University of Tokyo. The venue is Shonan Village Center near
The neutron-halo structure in 11Li was discovered in the first measurement
of the nuclear radii of light neutron-rich nuclei by means of secondary beams
produced by projectile fragmentation of high-energy heavy-ion beam.
It has opened a new era of the study of nuclei far from the stability.
This experiment was performed in Berkeley under the US-Japan collaboration
conducted by the Institute of Nuclear Study, the University of Tokyo.
The INS has been transformed, and the relevant part has become the
The Halo2010 Symposium is devoted to review various experimental and
theoretical progresses in the fields of physics of drip-line nuclei
and to discuss future perspectives
initiated by 3rd generation RI beam facilities.
The Symposium will consist of invited talks and open discussion sessions.
There will not be published proceedings, but all presentations will be
available on-line and be collected in a DVD-ROM.
Registration to the workshop is open to anyone who is interested in attending.
