4th Asian Forum for Accelerators and Detectors (AFAD-2013) will be hosted by Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics SB RAS, Novosibirsk, Russia, from February 25 to February 26, 2013.
AFAD is the new name for the Joint Asian Accelerator Work Shop (JAAWS). The first JAAWS was held in December, 2009 at IHEP, Beijing, China and 2nd JAAWS was held in November, 2010 at Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL), Pohang, Korea. The previous
AFAD'12 meeting was held in February, 2012, at VECC, Kolkata, India.
JAAWS was started as an initiatives to enhance collaborative
activities in Asia for accelerator related technology developments
toward practical applications in variety of fields like industry or
medicine. It has now been extended as a forum (Asian Forum for
Accelerator and Detector; AFAD) to keep friendly discussions and
sustainable collaborations in the field of Accelerator and Detector
among Asian laboratories.
There will be six categories in the workshop as follows:
- Accelerator and its related technologies for photon science
- Accelerator and its related technologies for hadron (neutron) science
- Detector Technology Development
- Accelerator and its related technologies for Industrial & Medical Applications
- R&D for innovative accelerators
- Network & Computing
from 25 February 2012, to 26 February 2013

Novosibirsk is called the capital of Siberia. It is the biggest city in the area between the Urals
and the Pacific Ocean and is the third largest city in Russia after Moscow and St.Petersburg with a population
of about 1,4 million people. Novosibirsk was founded in 1893. It is located on both sides of the Siberian
river Ob and its history is closely connected with the construction of the Trans-Siberian railroad Moscow-Vladivostok.
Today Novosibirsk is an important industrial, agricultural, transport, cultural and scientific center.
The city has the biggest Siberian up-to-date airport Tolmachevo, a river port and railway station.
Akademgorodok, wich means "Scientific Town" in Russian, is a part of Novosibirsk
- is a world-known scientific center.
Akademgorodok - the Siberian city of science - is 40 kilometers south of the center of Novosibirsk.
It was founded in 1957 and was intended to be an interdisciplinary research center.
Physicists, chemists, mathematicians, archaeologists, electronics specialists, philosophers,
geologists and geneticists are its residents. Akademgorodok is an agglomeration of a large number of
scientific and educational institutions: Novosibirsk State University, one of Russia's three leading
universities, Physics-Mathematics School, Higher College of Informatics, fifty scientific research
and design institutes of Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Science are among them.
Most of the research Institutes are located along Lavrentiev Prospect - the street was listed in the
Guinness Book of World Records as the "most scientific street" in the world.
