                 International Workshop on 

The Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics of the Joint Institute
for Nuclear Research is organizing the Second International
Workshop on Data Acquisition Systems for Neutron
Experimental Facilities DANEF'2000
(see DANEF'97 at http://nfdfn.jinr.ru/DANEF-97/) to be held in
Dubna, Russia from June 5 to 7, 2000. The aim of the Workshop is
to provide a forum for the discussion of different aspects of
development of the data acquisition systems, including
electronics and software.
We want to bring together scientists and engeneers working on
the field of neutron instrumentation and sample environement to
establish closer contacts to solve common problems.
