The 2014 National Nuclear Physics Summer School (NNPSS) will be held from Monday June 9 through Friday June 20, 2014, at the College of William & Mary in historic Williamsburg, Virginia. The summer school is open to graduate students and postdocs within a few years of their PhD (on either side) with a strong interest in experimental and theoretical nuclear physics. For more information on NNPSS, including lecture material from previous schools, please visit the INT NNPSS website.
The lecturers of the summer school have been selected to give pedagogical reviews of topics in theoretical and experimental nuclear physics, including nuclear and hadronic structure, effective field theories, lattice QCD, heavy-ion physics, nuclei far from stability, nuclear astrophysics, fundamental symmetries, neutrons and neutrinos. Hands-on tutorials will introduce participants to techniques in computational theoretical and experimental nuclear physics.
The school will consist of ten days of lectures, special topics seminars and discussions, an excursion to the recently upgraded Jefferson Lab accelerator and experimental halls, and several social activities. It is an excellent opportunity for junior researchers to get a broad perspective on current and future research in nuclear physics, and to network with other researchers.
The school can accommodate 50 applicants. Review of applications and reference. letters will commence on April 25, 2014. For accepted applicants, the school will cover most of the local expenses. Participants are responsible for travel costs and extracurricular expenses.
Inquiries should be sent to NNPSS2014@physics.wm.edu.
