Aims: Muon storage rings have been proposed for use as a source of high-energy neutrino beams (the Neutrino Factory) and as the basis for a high-energy lepton-anti-lepton collider (the Muon Collider). The Neutrino Factory is widely believed to be the machine of choice for the search for leptonic-CP violation while the Muon Collider may prove to be the most practical route to multi-TeV lepton-anti-lepton collisions. Though conceived to serve quite distinct programmes, the accelerator facilities required have many features in common. Compelling synergies exist between the R&D programmes that are required to make either the Neutrino Factory or the Muon Collider a realistic future option for the field. The aims of the meeting, are therefore: • To summarise the physics of neutrinos and the implications of recent observations for particle physics, astrophysics, and cosmology; • To summarise the physics opportunities of lepton-anti-lepton collisions at the high-energy frontier, seeking to expose synergies between the high-flux neutrino programme and the energy-frontier programme; •To review the physics potential of the Neutrino Factory and the Muon Collider and the detector technologies that are required; •To discuss in detail the Neutrino Factory and Muon Collider accelerator R&D programmes that are presently being carried out; and •To assess the strength of the synergies between the future Neutrino Factory and Muon Collider R&D programmes and the opportunities for collaboration that such synergies present.
