FRIB Day 1 Science at the 2017 Low Energy Community Meeting

August 2 @ Argonne National Laboratory

The FRIB Day 1 Science workshop will be held as a pre-workshop to this year's Low Energy Community Meeting at Argonne National Laboratory, in the afternoon of Wednesday, August 2, 2017. The workshop is being organized with the goal of (a) better defining to the community the capabilities of the FRIB facility envisioned for early science, (b) defining the instrumentation capabilities expected in the same time frame, and (c) first discussions of the processes for early science.

To this end, we have organized a program of FRIB facility/capability talks, followed by science-based presentations that explore the reach and nature of programs possible with early FRIB beams and the theory in support of these programs. We hope that this workshop will serve as a catalyst to the community to optimize early science at FRIB.
