The Australian Academy of Science, in collaboration with the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC), organised the Australia-Japan neutron science workshop: Sharing science with neutrons. This workshop was held as a result of the Japan-Australia Joint Committee Meeting on Science and Technology (JSTC) held in 2012, and was the second workshop held between the two countries in 2013, the first being held in Tokyo in July on the topic of marine science. The Australian Government Department of Industry and the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) provided funding for both workshops.

The workshop ran over two days from 5 to 6 November 2013 and was held at the ANSTO headquarters at Lucas Heights in Sydney. A total of 33 senior experts from Australia and Japan participated in this important meeting, and the Academy also supported the attendance of 12 Australian early- to mid-career researchers.

Professor Chennupati Jagadish FAA FTSE, Vice President of the Academy, officially opened the workshop. A Tanka poem, composed by the Japanese poet Saeko Ogi, was recited by Professor John White FAA at the start of the meeting to summarise the hopes for future collaboration between Australia and Japan on the topic of neutron science. The poem reads:
