Advances and Challenges in Nuclear Fission and Quasi-Fission for the SuperHeavy Elements
11 May 2020 - 15 May 2020 • Naples, Italy
Abstract:
The main goal of the Symposium is to discuss the state of the art of our present knowledge of nuclear processes such as fission and quasifission in the region of the very heavy and superheavy nuclei and to identify possible physics cases to be explored with the two new facilities under development, the Super Heavy Element (SHE) factory in Dubna (Russia) and Selective Production of Exotic Species (SPES) in Legnaro (Italy). These two facilities can play an extremely important and unique role in accessing, with different capabilities, unexplored regions of the nuclear chart, in particular the unknown neutron rich side. This area of research is particularly relevant because is of interest for the nucleosynthesis of the elements heavier that iron (r-process) and for the understanding of the existence and persistence of the shell closures. The latter are the main ingredients for the predicted survival of superheavy elements against fission.
Topics:
Fission of very heavy and superheavy elements Fission modes, fission barriers and half-lives Fission fragment properties Fission competition with a-decay Fusion and quasifission competition Production of superheavy elements Fission Studies with Radioactive Ion Beams

Joint ICTP-IAEA Workshop on Radiation Damage in Nuclear Systems: From Bohr To Young
11 May 2020 - 22 May 2020 • Trieste, Italy
Organizer:
The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics and the International Atomic Energy Agency
Abstract:
This Workshop will assists Ph.D. students and early-career researchers in developing a quantitative understanding of the impact of radiation damage on materials, both for existing fission and proposed fusion reactors. There is an emphasis on the conceptual progression of theoretical and experimental techniques across spatial scales from atomistic descriptions to the macroscopic behaviour of bulk material. A limited number of grants are available to support the attendance of selected participants, with priority given to participants from developing countries. There is no registration fee.

NOW 2020 — Neutrino Oscillation Workshop
06 Sep 2020 - 13 Sep 2020 • Ostuni, Brindisi, Italy
Organizer:
Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare and Departments of Physics of Bari and Lecce, Italy
Abstract:
NOW 2020 is the 11th workshop of a series started in 1998 in Amsterdam and held since 2000 in the Apulian region of Italy. The aim of the workshop is: to discuss Neutrino Oscillation Physics, in particular current experimental data and their theoretical interpretation; to outline future investigations of neutrino masses and mixings; and to explore the links with various research fields in Astroparticle Physics and Cosmology.
