Dear Colleague

We would like to invite you to attend the

Workshop on VITESS 2 and Other Packages for Simulations of Neutron

at the Hahn-Meitner-Institut, Berlin. It will start on Monday 25th June at
13:00 and finish on Wednesday 27th
June at 13:00.

The Scope
of the workshop is to give an introduction to the VITESS simulation program
and to the new features of version
2.0. Please see also our web-site:

The talks in the beginning of the workshop will especially be for colleagues
who want to start using VITESS and
for those who are interested in the new possibilities of the program. There
will be time to do practical work with VITESS.

Talks on other MC simulation packages are also very welcome. We expect
interesting discussions on comparisons of different packages and on
simulation problems in general. In this way, we hope to contribute in
developing new ideas for applications of MC computer simulations in neutron
