Second announcement
2nd Workshop on High Energy Proton Microscopy
Chernogolovka, Russia, June 2–4, 2010

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 2nd Workshop on High Energy Proton Microscopy to be hosted by the Institute of Problems of Chemical Physics RAS in Chernogolovka, Russia, on June 2–4, 2010.

High energy proton microscopy (HEPM) is a novel technique for high-resolution radiographic imaging of the interior of thick and dense objects in dynamic experiments by mono-energetic beams of GeV-energy protons. The workshop is dedicated to present and future applications of HEPM to fundamental research in the fields of plasma physics, material sciences, biology, high energy density physics (HEDP) and warm-dense-matter (WDM) studies, as well as to discussion of parameters and requirements for the existing and future HEPM facilities. Special session is also planned for the discussion of scientific program for future PRIOR facility that is to be developed at GSI/FAIR.

This is the 2nd announcement for the workshop. Please see also the 1st announcement at the workshop website at http://www.ficp.ac.ru/hepm2010/.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the workshop.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee,
With the best regards,
Victor Mintsev
