Lamoura, June 6th – 11th, 2010
Dear Colleague,
Please find enclosed the final program of the ‘EURORIB’10’ conference which will be held in Lamoura (France) from June 6th to June 11th 2010.
In order to preserve the informal character of the meeting and to stimulate presentation of innovative ideas, no proceedings will be published.

Participants are welcome to arrive at Lamoura in the afternoon of Sunday 6th June between 16h00 and 22h00 and during conference hours starting at 8h00 on the following days.
In case registration fees are not credited on time to the conference account, participants are advised to bring with them a copy of their proof of payment (bank transfer or other justification) or their acknowledgement of receipt.
Lunch and excursion tickets will be supplied in the registration package for participants and registered companions. Excursion tickets will also be available for purchase at the conference on Sunday and Monday only.
During the conference, you can reach the secretaries at the following numbers: +41 22 76 76059 and

The conference will begin on Monday June 7th at 9h00 and will close on Friday June 11th at 12h00.
The programme will consist of oral invited papers, oral contributed papers, poster presentations, working group sessions on instrumentation, electronics and data acquisition and a presentation and question session on the ENSAR contract.
Speakers are requested to bring their contribution in a common format (such as Powerpoint or PDF) on an electronic medium (CD, memory stick, etc…). Presentations can be uploaded to Indico before the conference (http://cern.ch/eurorib2010 , ‘my contribution’, add material). All speakers are encouraged to transfer their presentations as early as possible, and at least one day before their talk.
The poster session will be organised on Wednesday June 9th 2010 from 17:30 to 19:00
The three best posters, selected by the participants, will be given the opportunity of a 10 minute oral
presentation on Thursday afternoon. Speakers will be requested to bring their contribution in a common format (such as Powerpoint or PDF) on an electronic medium (CD, USB pen-drive, memory stick, etc…)
Poster boards will be provided. Posters should be presented in A0 portrait format. The panels for the poster will be marked with poster board numbers. Please check these numbers in the book of abstracts . The posters should be pinned to the boards on Sunday evening on your arrival. They will be on display from Monday to Thursday.
