The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the CEA-Saclay organise in February 2010 (Monday 08 to Thursday 11) an expert meeting on model codes for spallation reactions. This "Second Advanced Workshop on Model Codes for Spallation Reactions" follows the first one held in Trieste (ICTP) two years ago.

During the previous workshop it has been agreed to organise an international benchmark of the different models developed by different groups in the world and the specifications of this benchmark, including the set of selected experimental data to be compared to models, have been fixed. Within these two years experimental data have been collected and uploaded on a web site dedicated to this benchmark. Calculations results from participants have been received. Tools to draw all these results have been developed and about ten thousands graphs (figures and deviation factors) are available to help to the benchmark analysis.

A consultants meeting was organised by IAEA on October 6-7, 2009, to analyze the prepared results and also to draw a preliminary conclusion. The outcome of this last meeting will be discussed during this "Second Advanced Workshop on Model Codes for Spallation Reactions". All participants are welcome to argue the results of this first analysis in order to assess the prediction capabilities of their spallation models, to understand the reason for the success or deficiency and finally to reach a consensus, if possible, on some of the physics ingredients that should be used in the models. The workshop will start Monday 08 February at 9:00 at the CEA-Saclay (France) in the Claude Bloch Amphitheatre (Building 774). It will be close on Thursday 11 at 17:00.
