The first Moscow Workshop 97 and second Moscow Workshop embedded in ECLIM 2002 invited the community of target fabricators from all over the world, the leaders in ICF-IFE theory, heads of experimental teams utilizing targets in irradiation experiments, on the achievements and prospects of targets ranging from design, through development and fabrication to target application. The targets provided for traditional and for advanced experiments with lasers, beams, powerful discharge machines, pinches, fast ignition and other combined facilities will be considered.

The conference will be held in the P.N. Lebedev Physical Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, one of the renowned scientific centres, with more than a 200 year history.

Moscow is the capital and the heart of Russia, it presents a serious political, cultural, business and religious center of Euro-Asia. It has nice and original architecture, lots of museums and galleries. With its about ten million population Moscow is the most northern megalopolis in the world, with glorious history and wide nightlife.

October is the picturesque month of Indian summer, Pushkin called it a “golden autumn”, in the central Russia. You will enjoy the colorful leaf fall in the parks, boulevards and in the streets, because Moscow has plenty of trees even in its central parts. Umbrellas may be useful, though occasional rains are not heavy. The light coats suited for temperatures around 10oC are recommended for this season.

An extensive cultural program will be organized.

We encourage you to circulate this information to interested colleagues.

You are encouraged to enter a registration to be added to our distribution list for further mailings, simply enter your name and email address on the registrstion form.
