Over the 2 years a relatively large number of collaborations have been building instruments for nuclear physics experiments. They have requested to acquire and got the GET system or parts of it. Today we count approximately 20 instruments that will employ the system.

Experiments have already been achieved with the proto-type. Today we are close to fully complete the system. The last production modules should be delivered by middle of the year. We expect to have produced approximately 100,000 channels with the corresponding software and firmware.

The management board of GET* by the end of the year would have completed its tasks and will be dissolved. Today we consider that the time is ripe to launch a collaboration of GET users. Should we agree to this, the objectives could be quite varied. It would include in particular the infrastructure for exchange, updates, extending and maintaining of the system. You will no doubt agree that these are essential particularly over the first 2 to 3 years of operation.

Further given the interests of such collaboration, it is most likely that we could include items associated with other aspects of TPCs. Examples such as Gas Amplifiers, Field Cage designs, etc as applied specifically to nuclear physics. Namely a collaboration akin to the CERN RD51 ( but with modest ambitions.

What we propose is that on Wednesday afternoon 20th May at NSCL, we hold a two hour meeting where we will attempt to explore and possibly set up a working group to define and structure such a collaboration.

So through this mail I invite all those who wish to join to stay for an afternoon session.

Yours Sincerely,

Emanuel Pollacco for the GET MB
