Graphical Agenda


The BIW10 program includes

3 Tutorial Orals - 75 min. + 15 min. for Questions and Answers (Q&A)
8 Invited Orals - 35 min. + 10 min. for Q&A
1 Faraday Cup Award Oral - 35 min. + 10 min. for Q&A
10 Contributed Orals - 20 min. + 10 min. for Q&A
2 Vendor Technical Orals - 20 min. + 10 min. for Q&A
1 Special Presentation Oral - 20 min. + 10 min. for Q&A

On Sunday, May 2, registration for BIW10 will be held from 16:00 - 18:00 in the Stiha meeting room. The registration reception, which will be held that evening at La Terraza from 18:00 - 20:00, is intended for informal discussions between attendees. Hors d'oeuvres will be served.

The welcoming remarks start Monday at 8:30 a.m.

Breaks and lunch are significantly long to encourage further informal discussion among attendees. Each day, morning break begins at 10:15; lunch begins at 12:15; and afternoon break begins at 15:15.

Without workshop oral session interruption, an extended session for vendor displays will occur from early Monday afternoon through Tuesday (late afternoon) to allow interactions between various vendor representatives and attendees. A single poster reception on Tuesday afternoon will again allow attendees to interact with each other and vendor representatives.

Two additional Vendor Technical Oral presentations have been scheduled for Monday and Tuesday early evening.

A social workshop banquet for attendees and vendor representatives will be held Wednesday evening at La Terraza.

Finally, on Thursday afternoon after BIW10 has concluded, pre-approved participants will tour the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) at Los Alamos National Laboratory will be held. (The BIW10 is no longer accepting LANSCE Tour forms.)

Going on the tour of LANSCE? Check out the LANSCE Tour Registration, Information Web site for further details.
