The Future of Nuclear Physics, Today!
Welcome to the website of the 2015 European Nuclear Physics Conference. EuNPC2015 is the third European Nuclear Physics Conference, organized by the Nuclear Physics Board of the European Physical Society, KVI – Center for Advanced Radiation Technology, and the University of Groningen. The conference takes place from 31 August – September 4, 2015, and will be held at the Martiniplaza, Groningen, The Netherlands.
In the tradition of the first (Bochum, 2009) and second (Bucharest, 2012) European Nuclear Physics conferences, EuNPC2015 aims to review and discuss the status and prospects in the field of nuclear physics and its applications. The conference will be a showcase for forefront theoretical and experimental developments, where the interplay between outstanding research and innovative concepts in the field will be promoted.
The 2015 edition will consist of invited plenary talks given by outstanding personalities and talented young researchers together with oral and poster contributions that are selected based on their quality, importance, and impact in the field of Nuclear Physics. The scientific program covers the following fields:
- Accelerators and Instrumentation
- Nuclear Structure, Spectroscopy, and Dynamics
- Nuclear Astrophysics
- Astroparticle Physics
- Heavy Ion Collisions and QCD Phases
- Hadron Structure, Spectroscopy, and Dynamics
- Fundamental Symmetries and Interactions
- Nuclear Physics Applications
- Few-Body Systems
Prior to the conference, there will be a one-day master class with the aim to give a few lectures that will promote the field to (under)graduate students and to trigger their interest. The lecturers and topics will be related to some of the talks given in the conference. The lecturers are:
- Klaus Blaum on “Basics of atomic physics techniques for nuclear structure studies”, and
- Sinead Ryan on “Theoretical methods in hadron spectroscopy”.
Moreover, one of the parallel sessions will be dedicated to career perspectives of young researchers.
