ANNOUNCEMENT of the Workshop

An international workshop on a next generation long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment, JHF-SK nu, will be held on May 30-31 in Tsukuba Japan following NuFACT'01. JHF, a joint project between KEK and JAERI, was approved recently by the Japanese government. The main accelerator of the JHF complex is a high-intensity 50 GeV proton synchrotron which will be completed and start commissioning in 2007. The goal of this workshop is to study physics potential and feasibility of a long baseline neutrino experiment with a neutrino beam from the JHF 50 GeV PS, which is at least 50 times more intense than the K2K beam. The far detector is Super-Kamiokande, already existing 295 km away from the JHF. A possibility of a substantially larger far detector, Hyper-Kamiokande, will also be discussed as a future option to observe CP violation in the neutrino oscillation.

Follow-up workshops are planned this year to eventually write a proposal and form an international collaboration. The initial base design, which has features of a narrow band neutrino beam tuned at the oscillation maximum and the ability of reconstructing the neutrino energy using quasi-elastic events, has been performed by the JHF-SK neutrino working group. The experiment is open to your contributions to further developments. We look forward to your active participation in the workshop.
