We are pleased to announce the fourth Pre-PAC Workshop for the AGATA physics campaign at LNL. The workshop will take place from the 2nd to the 4th October 2023 at the Legnaro National Laboratories and is planned to be held in-person.
The next LNL PAC meeting is planned for December 2023 and will evaluate experiments to be performed in the first half of 2024. During this period, beams from the entire TANDEM-ALPI-PIAVE accelerator complex will be available at LNL, and AGATA is expected to consist of a minimum of 15 triple clusters (1pi solid angle coverage).
The aim of the Pre-PAC Workshop is to assist the spokespersons in putting the strongest cases for their proposals forward through a discussion of the physics to be investigated, and to assess the feasibility of the proposed experiments. This includes all experiments planning to use stable beams from the TANDEM-ALPI-PIAVE accelerator complex for studies involving AGATA in a possible combination with PRISMA and/or ancillary detectors that are compatible with PRISMA. Any new projects will have to be presented at this workshop before being submitted to the LNL PAC. In most cases, we will not expect presentations of the projects that have already been discussed at the previous Pre-PAC Workshops. If, however, a new project shows a considerable overlap with a previously discussed project of a different group, both parties will be informed and encouraged to participate in the upcoming Workshop.
You are welcome to submit Letters of Intent (LoIs) for the above mentioned AGATA setups with a deadline of September 11th, 2023. They are expected to include, in a pdf file, title, short abstract with a description of the physics case, experimental setup, beam (energy, intensity), target(s), and the justified request of beam time. For the list of available beams from the Tandem- ALPI-PIAVE complex we invite you to consult the LNL website: https://agenda.infn.it/event/36457/attachments/107698/15223/tandem_piave_alpi_beams_agata.pdf
