Future Summer Schools
"Exotic Beam Summer School 2013", Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, California,
July 28 - August 4, 2013
This year's Exotic Beam Summer School (EBSS) will be held at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, July 28 - August 4, 2013. Please pass on this notice to interested students and young researchers. As in previous years, the number of places will be limited to around forty participants who will be selected from the pool of applicants. The school is intended for graduate students, but senior undergraduates and junior post-docs will also be considered.
This will be the twelfth in the series of annual summer schools devoted to the exciting developments in the study of exotic nuclei. The school is jointly organized by ANL, LBNL, LLNL, MSU, and ORNL. Development of the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) continues apace and FRIB, along with other existing and planned exotic beam facilities around the world, will present wonderful opportunities for future discoveries and technical innovations. The school is intended to introduce students and young researchers to the various facets of the science of exotic nuclei including nuclear structure, nuclear astrophysics, fundamental interactions, and the application of nuclear science and technology in the modern world.
The school will comprise lectures each morning, delivered by distinguished figures in the various sub-fields. In the afternoons, there will be hands-on activities, geared towards introducing fundamental techniques and methods in the production, detection, and investigation of exotic nuclei.
