Following the tradition of Autumn Schools in Lisbon, we are organizing
The XIX AUTUMN SCHOOL on
"New perspectives with Nuclear Radioactivity"
8 - 13th October, 2001
The aim of the School is to bring together fundamental issues of Nuclear
radioactivity and Nuclear Astrophysics as well as some of the technological
applications. The indicators show that sciences with a strong social impact
will occupy a predominant position in the turn of the century. Nuclear
physics is one of the branches of science that is expected to play an important
role in this new era. On the other hand, Astrophysics has always been an
attraction to the human mind. Here, Nuclear Physics has an essential part.
It is thus timely that the Nuclear Physics community participates actively,
either addressing fundamental questions, or applying its knowledge to Astophysics
and practical aspects of our society.
There will be a set of invited talks, addressing the most burning issues
within the topics of the school, in a format that will allow the participant
to, simultaneously, get acquainted with some basic ideas and
the most recent developments. There will also be some selected short contributions.
The school will be held at Instituto Superior Tecnico, which is situated
at the heart of our city, Lisbon.
Topics and speakers
The main topics addressed at the school will be:
Drip line Phenomena
Superheavy elements (SHE)
Primordial and early nucleosynthesis
Solar Neutrino problem
Accelerator Mass Spectroscopy (AMS)
Biological effects of irradiation
Radiotherapy: Boron Neutron Capture Therapy and Brachytherapy
Nuclear Medicine: Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
Monte Carlo simulations
Invited lectures include:
S. Hofmann (GSI), B. Jonson (Chalmers), G. Kraft (GSI), K. L. Kratz
(Mainz), K. Langanke (Aarhus), E. Maglione (Padova), B. Mottelson (Nordita),
G. Pollarolo (Torino), M. Suter (Zurich), M. Wiescher (Notre Dame), J.
Yanch (MIT), M. Zhukov (Chalmers).
General information and deadlines
There will be some seminars and short contributions.
A one page abstract, in Latex form, is required for the selection of
It must be sent by e-mail: NRAD2001@CFIF.IST.UTL.PT
The deadline for the submission of abstracts is the 1th JUNE. The final
decision will be communicated before the 30th of JUNE.
Information on the school is available on the WEB: http://cfif.ist.utl.pt/~NRAD2001
Lisbon has an international airport not very far from the town center.
The connection to the hotels is easily done by bus or taxi (1500-2000 PTE).
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Lisbon.
