Starting with this meeting, this group, the BENE PHYSICS group, will host regularly a specific forum of the Working Package on detectors R&D towards a Proposal for a FP6 Design Study on Neutrino Factory & Superbeams. The session in May will focus on R&D towards very largeWater Cerenkov detectors.

Contributions are expected from C. K. Jung. Status and R&D plans in the US (UNO)
                                                  K. Nakamura Status and R& D plans in Japan (HyperK)
