Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the organizing and program committees, we would like to
invite you to attend the International Conference on Laser Energy
Science / Laser and Accelerator Neutron Sources and Applications
2017 (CLES/LANSA'17) which will be held from April 18th through 21st
of 2017 at the Pacifico Yokohama, Japan.

LANSA is intended to open a new horizon of neutron science and
application by compact neutron sources driven by high power lasers
along with conventional ones based on accelerators. The first
international meeting was held in 2013 by setting laser-assisted
neutron sources and applications as key terms, in order to overview
the status and future prospects of relevant fields. In the late 2015,
the national project of Japan has started aiming at innovative
improvement of compact neutron sources based on both laser and
accelerators for industrial applications. Upon these backgrounds,
the 2nd forum will be held in order to provide an opportunity for
participants to exchange mutual information and activate their own

Topics of the conference include but not limited to
- Compact Neutron Sources (laser fusion, cluster explosion, laser-
   driven ion beams, photonuclear reactions, LINAC, cyclotron,
   electrostatic accelerators, nuclear reactors, RI, et al.)  
- Physics / Control Technologies (particle acceleration, radiation
   generation, energy and angular distribution, moderators, control
   system, et al.)
- Neutron Diagnostics (high resolution measurements in space, time
   and energy, sensitive imaging, radiography, et al.)
- Applications (nuclear transmutations, nuclear waste processing,
   biomedical applications, fusion reactor material investigations,
   fusion-fission hybrid-reactors, et al.)
- Facilities (laser facility and technology, accelerator facility
   and technology, target technology, et al.)

- Paper submission deadline:        Dec. 12, 2016
- Registration start:               Dec. 15, 2016
- Early bird registration deadline: Mar. 21, 2017
- CLES/LANSA'17:                    Apr. 18-21, 2017

We are looking forward to seeing you at Yokohama, Japan.

                                                   Yours sincerely.

                        Conference Chair   Prof. Hiroaki Nishimura
                        Program committee  Dr. Fujio Maekawa
