General Info

The Zakopane Conference on Nuclear Physics, for historical reasons called School, has been organized since 1963 by the Henryk Niewodniczanski Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IFJ PAN) and the Marian Smoluchowski Institute of Physics of the Jagiellonian University. Over the years the School  became famous worldwide conference. Nowadays, the Zakopane Conference on Nuclear Physics has a character of a biennial international congress and is one of the major events in Poland, related to the low energy nuclear physics.

During the construction of the scientific program special attention has always been paid to offering the enthusiastic and pedagogical overviews of the most recent research subjects in nuclear physics from the both theoretical and experimental points of view. Young participants have also opportunity to present results of their research in short talks or on posters.

Currently, the conference theme is “Extremes of the Nuclear Landscape” and it is a forum for reviewing progress in theory and experiment at the forefront of nuclear research. This time a special attention will be given to the  structure of exotic, unstable nuclei. We will also focus on  collective excitations  of the nuclear matter.   Furthermore, the nuclear physics context of astrophysical processes will be widely  discussed. An important part of the Conference will be devoted to presentations of newest  achievements in the nuclear structure and reactions  investigations and their influence on other disciplines. Noticeable  discoveries in these areas are closely linked to the ongoing development of experimental facilities and detectors, which is among the conferences topics.  The aim of the Conference is also to increase the mutual communication of physicists representing various areas of nuclear physics and to create opportunities for intense interaction between graduate students, young researchers and senior scientists.

Please make note that this eddition of the Zakopane Conference will be followed by the PARIS Collaboration meeting, that will be held at IFJ PAN Krakow, September 2-3, 2024 (https://indico.ifj.edu.pl/event/1239)
