Invited lectures, selected seminar contributions and posters will cover advances in the study of nuclear phenomena: from low lying shell model states to collective excitations at extreme spins and temperatures, from light to superheavy nuclei, from exotic proton drip-line nuclei to very neutron rich nuclear systems and neutron-stars.   Latest ideas and advances in nuclear theory will be presented as well as new experimental results.  New methods and apparatus developed and used at stable and radioactive ion beam facilities will be reviewed. We will discuss the impact of nuclear physics on other areas, such as astrophysics, healthcare, energy production or security.

The scientific program of the Conference will  consist in part of a series of one-day topical workshops focused on experimental and theoretical aspects of:

  • the structure of exotic nuclei situated  at the borders of the nuclear chart,
  • the collective phenomena in nuclei over a wide range of of temperatures and spins,
  • the nuclear physics processes  in supernovae explosions and  in neutron-star mergers.
  • There will be also a special workshop on the construction of FAIR and the development of nuclear physics research and its applications within the FAIR collaborations: NUSTAR and APPA .

They will be convened by world class experts in these fields.

Most of the  Conference  time will be devoted to  reports on the latest achievements in the nuclear research. These contributions  will be chosen with a help of   the  International Advisory Committee bringing together outstanding scientists, representing the world wide nuclear physics community.

Each session will include a few invited talks (duration of 20 to 30 minutes) and selected contributed seminars (duration of 15 minutes).

Alexandra Gade (MSU, East Lansing) –    Structure of Exotic Nuclei,

Adam Maj (IFJ PAN, Kraków) – Nuclear Collectivity,

Jorge Piekarewicz (Florida State University, Tallahassee) –  Nuclear Astrophysics.

Special lectures

  • The conference program will start with a keynote talk by Witold Nazarewicz  (MSU, US) who will summarize the status and perspectives  in the field of low-energy  nuclear physics.
  • During the conference, Marek Lewitowicz (NuPECC/GANIL, Fr) will present the forthcoming NuPECC Long Range Plan 2024 for Nuclear Physics in Europe ( )
  • The closing  lecture will be given by Philippe Chomaz (CEA, Fr)  who will introduce Qantum Computing- one of hot topics in science.

Poster Session 

Posters (B1 format, portrait orientation) will be divided into 3 categories: E-experiment, I-Instrumentation, T-theory.  At  the dedicated Poster Session authors are expected to present and discuss their work. Best papers can be published in the conference proceedings. Winners of the poster competition will be awarded  a special cash prize founded by NuPECC. To create a friendly and informal atmosphere during the Poster Session, we will serve snacks and refreshments.

During the Poster Session  CAEN will present advanced tools for educational labs. CAEN brings the experience acquired in almost 40 years of collaboration with the High Energy & Nuclear Physics community into the University educational laboratories by providing modern physics experiments based on the latest technologies and instrumentation.
CAEN Educational Kits, mainly based on Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) are provided with a dedicated Control Software, are modern and flexible platforms for teaching the fundamentals of Statistics, Particles Detection and Nuclear Imaging. CAEN developed a series of experiments with different difficulty levels which  can be performed at the high school level, undergraduate physics laboratory and Ph.D. courses. Some of these experiments will be carried out at the exhibition.
