The Associated Users of Western High Energy Accelerators, formed in June, is designed to promote communications among users of the SLAC and LBL facilities. Richard L. Lander (University of California, Davis) is the chairman. Affiliated institutions include Cal Tech, MIT, Western Washington State College, Johns Hopkins, the University of California at Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego and Santa Barbara, and the Universities of Arizona, Colorado and Hawaii.
The second new group just being formed is the Bevalac Users Association, which will hold its organizational meeting during the 19 January conference.
