This workshop will be devoted to a consideration of a Super B-factory,
an e+e- facility with a luminosity one to two orders of magnitudes
higher than what has been achieved at KEK-B or PEP-II. Physicists from BaBar, Belle, PEP-II
and KEK-B as well as theorists are expected to participate and discuss the critical issues
for this next step in the study of CP violation and rare decays.
This workshop will be held at the Imin International Conference
Center (Jefferson Hall) on the University of Hawaii campus during January 19-22, 2004.
- The first day will feature plenary talks on experimental and theoretical
aspects of the physics that are the motivation of the facility including the study of phases
from new physics, b->s
l+ l-, b->sgamma and other probes of new physics. The second and third day will be
parallel sessions on issues in the detector, accelerator, backgrounds and theory. The fourth day
will be devoted to a joint session of accelerator and detector groups on backgrounds and
machine-detector interface issues. This will be followed by summary talks.

- Registration Form
Registration is limited to 100 participants. Registration
fee: $100 if received before the deadline and $150 if paid on-site. Registration deadline is
Dec. 30, 2003.Registration fee covers coffee breaks, lunch on the first day of the workshop,
reception, and administrative fees.
Even if you plan to pay on site, it is mandatory that we
receive the registration form before Dec. 31, 2003.
- Attendee List
Each seat in the parallel session rooms has a socket with an
The university computing services will provide these cables.
In addition, we hope to have wireless networking available in all the
rooms of the East-West center used by the workshop.
To use this will require registration with the
university computing services (details will be announced shortly).
Each session will have an LCD projector. A traditional transparency
projector will also be available.
Must be made directly with the hotel and no later than
Dec. 26, 2003. Reservations received after Dec. 26 will be at the group rate but on a space available
basis. We strongly recommend that room reservations be made early as January is the high season and
hotels fill up fast.
Transportation from Hotels to UH(University of Hawaii)
- Shuttle service will be provided from the hotels to the university campus.
The schedule will be posted at a later date.
- Public bus service is also available from the hotels
to the campus at $2.00 each way and they run every 15-25 minutes. Parking is quite limited on campus, so
driving is not encouraged.
- Please prepare your talk in .pdf, .ppt or .ps format.
Please do not use ethnic/special fonts (Japanese, French, Korean, Italian,
If possible, post the file of the talk to superb04#phys.hawaii.edu
one week before the meeting(Jan. 12th).
If you need to work on the talk up to the last minute, transfer the file
to a USB card. We will use only one laptop at each session
to avoid time lost to swapping laptops.
A wireless hub will be set up at the Physics Department located in
Watanabe Hall, Room 217. Printing and photocopying facilities are
also available there.
