The 4th international conference on
“Collective Motion in Nuclei under Extreme Conditions” (COMEX4)

The COMEX4 conference will be held October 22-26, 2012 at Shonan Village Center, in Kanagawa, Japan. The Conference place is located about 60 km southwest of Tokyo and it commands nice scenery of Mt. Fuji across a blue bay. This Shonan area is famous as a resort place. The conference will be hosted by the Center for Nuclear Study (CNS), the University of Tokyo and the Research Center for Nuclear Physics (RCNP), Osaka University and supported by RIKEN.


The COMEX conferences are a continuation of the long series of topical conferences on Giant Resonances, started in 1979. Following the previous COMEX conferences, COMEX1, held in Paris, France in 2003, COMEX2, held in Sankt Goar, Germany in 2006 and COMEX3, held on Mackinac Island, Michigan in 2009, the scope of COMEX4 includes the related topics of collective excitations in stable and unstable nuclei. Decay studies from highly excited states, cluster and exotic shapes of nuclei, and applications in astrophysics are also the scope of this conference.
