Welcome to CSSP16!

This will be the 27th edition of a tradition that begun in 1964.

The title is: Exotic Nuclei and Nuclear/Particle Astrophysics (VI). Physics with small accelerators and is the 6th in the latest series with the same title organized in Mamaia (2005) and Sinaia (2007, 2010, 2012 and 2014). It is part of ENNAS (European Network of Nuclear Astrophysics Schools, with St. Tecla and Russbach).

Following extensive discussions and in agreement with those schools' organizers we created a network of periodic events that respond to the need of preparing and educating the younger generations of physicists in the cross disciplinary fields of nuclear physics and astrophysics through lectures and meetings with some of the best active scientists. This year we add additional flavor to the event through the explicit inclusion of subjects related to physics with small accelerators, fundamental or applied research subjects.

We intend to remain faithful to the format of the latest editions: the first week of the event will be closer to a school-like format defined by a series of courses up to 2-4 hours each. It will be aimed at graduate students, post-docs and young researchers. Students from the host country, the surrounding regions and all countries are invited to attend. A limited number of stipends to cover the local expenses for students will be available. The second week will have a conference-like format, with 1 hour invited lectures. The goal of the first week is to have lectures from some of the best specialists in the fields announced that would prepare the students for the second part. Students and young researchers will give 20 min. short communications. We also intend to bring to this audience news about ELI-NP, the newest and most important scientific project that happens in the host country and the region.

Topics include:
  • Exotic nuclei
  • Nuclear physics with RIBs
  • Nuclear physics for astrophysics
  • Stellar evolution. Compact stars and supernovae
  • Astroparticle physics
  • Stellar and laser induced plasmas
  • Physics at ELI-NP
  • Applications at small accelerators
  • Nuclear astrophysics with small accelerators
  • Instrumentation
  • Accelerators for medical treatments, radioisotope production and industrial applications
