[1] General Notifications
   1.1) JLC Workstation Cluster Reconfiguration (Miyamoto)
      	Now all the jlcux's are running with HP-UX10.10
      	and major system modifications including UID and GID
      	reassignments and disk reorganization are finished.
        See /jlc/adm/TO-DO for details.
        As a result of these modifications, the previous
        .cshrc and .login may no longer work properly.
        Users are strongly recommended to update theirs
        according to new standard .login and .cshrc available from


        Please be aware that some of the applications in
        /usr/local will be removed in a couple of months.
   1.2) FY97 Budget (Miyamoto)
        Budgetary request for FY97 should be prepared in a written
        form and handed to Miyamoto by next Monday.

[2] VTX Group R&D Plan (Sugimoto)
    The goal of this year's R&D include the following
	a) MIP detection at room temperature, for which
	   a beam test is planned in June.
	b) Radiation damage test.
	c) Verify the effectiveness of the center of 
	   gravity mehtod, making use of the diffusion
	   in the zero field region.
	   Need a CCD with a hole in the ceramic window
	   in order to avoid multiple scattering.
	   A beam test is planned in November.
	d) Development of a fast readout circuit.
	e) Investigation of readout speed dependence of
	   noise and charge transfer efficiency.
    Taking these into account, Sugimoto made a budgetary request
    to the group.
