CNS-RIKEN Joint International Symposium on
Frontier of gamma-ray spectroscopy and Perspectives for Nuclear Structure Studies

April 3-5, 2008

Co-hosted by CNS and RIKEN
2-1 Hirosawa, Wako, Saitama 351-0198, JAPAN

A CNS-RIKEN Joint symposium on "Frontier of gamma-ray spectroscopy and Perspectives for Nuclear Structure Studies (gamma08)" will be held at RIKEN Wako campus in Saitama (Japan) on April 3 - 5, 2008. It will take place in the Nishina hall in RIKEN.

The purpose of the symposium is to discuss recent progress and future perspectives of gamma-ray spectroscopy and recent development of advanced gamma-ray detectors. It is hoped that the symposium will encourage international cooperation and stimulate physicists in the field of nuclear structure studies.

Main topics to be discussed are:

  • Collectivities and shell effects in neutron/proton-rich nuclei
  • Shell structure and stability of very heavy nuclei
  • Exotic deformation / new collective motion at low and high spin
  • Single particle motion in isomeric states
  • Development of detectors and experimental methods

Important Days and Deadlines

  • Deadline for abstract submission: February 29 (JST), 2008 (<-- extended)
  • Deadline for registration: March 21 (JST), 2008


Abstract Submission


In order to encourage an open discussion of also the latest, often very preliminary results no proceedings will be published.
