THEORY-3: Scientific Workshop on Nuclear Fission dynamics and the Emission of Prompt Neutrons and Gamma Rays

Sep 16 2014
Sep 18 2014

Scope of the workshop
The workshop aims at providing a comprehensive overview of the dynamical aspects of nuclear fission and their consequences on the fission fragment properties. Contributions should highlight the advancement of nuclear fission theory and in particular of the emission of prompt neutrons and gamma rays.

It represents the third workshop of a series initiated in 2010 in Sinaia, Romania and continued in 2012 in Biarritz, France

Theory-3 is co-organized by EC-JRC-IRMM (Belgium) and the NIPNE, Bucharest (Romania).

In order to enhance the workshops’ potential for high-quality networking, experts are invited to attend and participation of post doctoral fellows and PhD students who wish to present their work is encouraged.
