Scientific Program

You can find the updated program of the oral talks, the poster list which are all arranged into the online timetable. You can see the layout of the posters in the Poster Session Hall.

The scientific program consists of plenary and parallel sessions and a poster session. The program covers most of the areas of nuclear physics research and applications. Plenary talks are of (30+5) min of duration. The list of confirmed plenary speakers is posted here.

Talks in the parallel sessions consist of (25+5) min-invited talks and (16+4) min contributed talks. All speakers and poster presenters must submit an abstract through this symposium website by May 30, 2011.

Interested participants please contact the organizers of the respective sessions. The parallel sessions are organized as follows:

I. Workshop on “Low Energy Nuclear Reactions and Nuclear Structure” will cover about 3 afternoon sessions, the first one plenary. The emphasis is on nuclear reactions and structure involving weakly bound and exotic nuclei and recent developments on nuclear structure, including results with large arrays. The aim is to strengthen these fields in Latin America. The workshop organizers are Paulo Gomes and Nilberto Medina. Preliminary invited speakers include:
