The 6th LACM-TORIJIN-JUSTIPEN Workshop
Joint Institute for Heavy Ion Research, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
October 31 - November 2, 2012
This workshop is dedicated to the memory of late Prof. Mario Stoitsov (1953-2011).
The sixth LACM-TORIJIN-JUSTIPEN workshop will be held on October 31 - November 2, 2012 in Building 6008 (Joint Institute for Heavy Ion Research) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The meeting is a merger of two workshops: (i) the US-Japan theory meeting under the auspices of the Japan-US Theory Institute for Physics with Exotic Nuclei (JUSTIPEN) and (ii) the annual NNSA-JIHIR meeting on the nuclear large amplitude collective motion (LACM) with an emphasis on fission.
Participants can notice that the LACM-TORIJIN-JUSTIPEN workshop is followed immediately by the 5th International Conference on "Fission and properties of neutron-rich nuclei" (ICFN5), November 4 - 10, 2012, on Sanibel Island, FL. Hence, they can benefit from their US travel to attend both our workshop and the Sanibel conference. Information about the Sanibel conference can be found at http://proton.phy.vanderbilt.edu/ .
The purpose of the meeting, jointly organized by the JUSTIPEN Governing Board, by the UT/ORNL theory group, by the Todai-RIKEN Joint International Program for Nuclear Physics (TORIJIN), is to bring together scientists (theorists and experimentalists) with interests in physics of radioactive nuclei, LACM, and theoretical approaches related to the SciDAC-3 NUCLEI project. As in the preceding Joint JUSTIPEN-LACM meetings (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010), one emphasis of the meeting will be on topics related to future collaborations between US and Japanese groups (under JUSTIPEN). We are looking forward to an exciting meeting with stimulating discussions. The program of the workshop will cover a number of topics, including:
Fission/fusion and other forms of the large-amplitude collective motion
Computational nuclear structure physics
Gamma ray spectroscopy
Clustering in nuclei
Topics related to on-going future collaborations with Japanese groups under JUSTIPEN
Topics related to density functional approach to structure and reactions, ab-initio methods
Nuclear structure relevant to nuclear astrophysics
The hotel of choice for this conference is the Jameson Inn in Oak Ridge. Its webpage for reservation can be found at https://be3.innpoints.com/?hotelCode=SJ1334&promoCode=PCOR&style=lin .
Interested participants should send an email to Anne Gladman (firstname.lastname@example.org) and provide the following information:
We are asking even those holding current ORNL badges to register so an accurate count can be obtained for the lunches and coffee breaks (provided free of charge to the workshop participants).
You will find maps that will help you getting to and around Oak Ridge National Laboratory at the following address:
Upon arrival at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, you are requested to proceed to the Visitor Center to obtain a badge for the duration of the visit. Since all external participants of the workshop will have to go through the same procedure, the whole process may take a while, and we suggest you arrive early enough.
The meeting will be held at the Joint Institute for Heavy Ion Research, in Building 6008. This is the rightmost building on this map. There is parking next to the building.
