The aim of this annual school is to educate young researchers on the excitement and challenges of radioactive ion beam physics. Through these schools, the research community will be able to more fully exploit the opportunities created by the next generation exotic beam facilities, such as the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). A unique feature of this summer school series is the hands-on activities where students spend their afternoons in the lab of a radioactive beam facility, learning about the techniques and instrumentation needed to carry out experiments with unstable beams. The EBSS series is sponsored by the US Department of Energy and National Science Foundation, and the following laboratories: Argonne National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory at Michigan State University. EBSS directors are Mike Carpenter (ANL), Rod Clark (LBNL), Michael Smith (ORNL) Mark Stoyer (LLNL) and Remco Zegers (NSCL/MSU).

Target Audience:  Graduate students who are studying nuclear physics or nuclear astrophysics and whose research or interest is in the area of radioactive ion beam physics.

Jointly Conducted by:  Argonne National Laboratory's Communications, Education and Public Affairs Division, and Physics Division.

Local Organizers: Michael Carpenter and Shoafei Zhu
