It is our pleasure to invite you to join our Regional Conference on Nuclear Physics (RCNP) & Winter School 2016 to be held at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia from the 12th to 16th December 2016.

Prior to the conference, a two-and-half days winter school co-organized with the university of Bordeaux, France, University of Malaya and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia will be held from the 12th to 14th December 2016. Prominent physicists from France, as well as local experts in the field of theoretical, experimental and applied nuclear physics, will be invited to deliver their talks during the school.

The next two days will be devoted to the conference, where we are seeking contributions related (but not limited) to the topics below:v7 A4

  • Nuclear structure
  • Nuclear reactions
  • Nuclear astrophysics
  • Nuclear physics in medicine
  • Environmental radiation
  • Health physics
  • Radiation physics
  • Nuclear materials
  • Neutrino physics

The registration fee will cover publication in an online, open-access proceeding (indexed in both WOS and Scopus), the banquet dinner, excursion and lab trip visits.

From this program, we hope to provide a platform whereby academicians, researchers and postgraduates, to showcase their research work. We also hope that this event could foster research collaborations between nuclear physicists and industrial partners, both locally and abroad.

The event will be held at:
T05, Faculty of Science,
Universiti Teknologi Malaysia,
81300 Johor Bahru,
Johor, Malaysia.
