ECRIS 2010

Grenoble, France

The results of the vote by the International Advisory Committee for the ECR Workshop series concerning the siting for the next ECR Workshop are now in.

As you recall, two groups, one from Sidney and the other from Grenoble, proposed to host the next ECRIS Workshop and provided additional information concerning the proposed bids for the next Workshop which was posted since mid-October on the ECRIS08 website. The community was invited to respond to us here at ANL with any comments. A total of 10 persons responded with comments or preferences during the open period ending in mid-November.
Those comments were forwarded to the International Advisory Committee and the committee members were each asked to respond to me with their vote preference for the next Workshop site.

The votes of the International Advisory Committee have now been tallied and the results are a preference for the Grenoble site by a vote of 7 to 4. I note the committee vote is similar to the preferences expressed by the few responses received from the general community.

Thus I am pleased to declare that the Grenoble bid, led by Thomas Thuillier, is the winning bid. My condolences to the Australian group led by David Button and Michael Hotchkis. I hope someday soon we may have the chance to visit the Australian lab as well.
