LCGT f2f meeting

This is the first face-to-face meeting after the approval of the LCGT construction budget..

I would like to urge all collaboration members to come to this commencement meeting and to recognize each other whom we cooperatively work together with to achieve the LCGT objective. We are far behind the progress of the world projects of gravitational wave detection and we are not so well funded nor sufficiently staffed at present, considering the extensive & urgent works to catch up overseas projects in shorter time. Against this difficulty, only way that we can take is to work coherently together by letting each direction align to the LCGT objective.

At this ,meeting, we will summarize the present status of LCGT and will present the construction design with its schedule. We try to find the most appropriate way to fulfill the objective by discussing together. This meeting presents you a chance where you can confirm your position and recognize what you can do for LCGT among many sub-working groups for the construction of adventurous cryogenic interferometer. I think that it is the most important to share the strong will to conquer difficulties that stand in front of us. Japanese government has supplied us with extensive money from the difficult finance and economy. We are obliged to thank for the brave decision of the Japanese government but we are willing to work for this obligation to make this fundamental science project successful. I hope each collaboration member participates this meeting for the success of LCGT.
