NuFact09, the 11th International Workshop on Neutrino Factories, Superbeams and Betabeams, will take place on 20–25 July in Chicago. The main aim of this series of workshops, started in 1999, is to understand the different options for a future neutrino oscillation experiment that will attack the problems of mass hierarchy and CP violation in the leptonic sector.

The 14th Lomonosov Conference on Elementary Particle Physics will be at Moscow State University on 19–25 August. These biennial conferences bring together about 300 theorists and experimentalists from different countries to review the current status and future prospects in elementary particle physics. The programme of the 14th conference will include neutrino physics, astroparticle physics, gravitation and cosmology, and electroweak theory. For further information and registration (deadline 1 March), see

EXON-2009, the International Symposium on Exotic Nuclei, is to be held in Sochi, Russia, on 28 September to 2 October. Organized by JINR (Dubna), GANIL (Caen, France), GSI (Darmstadt, Germany) and RIKEN (Wako, Japan), the event will be devoted to the investigation of nuclei in extreme states and, in particular, at the limits of nuclear stability (from very light neutron- and proton-rich up to superheavy nuclei).
