Goodbye CGS-13, see you at CGS-14!
This Symposium was the thirteenth in a series of meetings held previously in Studsvik, Sweden (1969); Petten, The Netherlands (1974); Brookhaven, USA (1978); Grenoble, France (1981); Knoxville, USA (1984); Leuven, Belgium (1987); Asilomar, USA (1990); Fribourg, Switzerland (1993); Budapest, Hungary (1996); Santa Fe, USA (1999); Prague, Czech Republic (2002) and South Bend, USA (2005).
The Symposium continued the general themes of earlier conferences with special emphasis on gamma-ray spectroscopy, advances in nuclear theory, nuclear structure, nuclear reactions, nuclear data and applications related to capture reactions. Topics discussed at the CGS-13:
- Nuclear structure (complete spectroscopy, new theoretical approaches)
- Fundamental physics (fundamental symmetries in neutron induced reactions)
- Statistical properties of nuclei and other quantum many-body systems (level densities, fluctuations, chaos)
- Nuclear astrophysics (s-,r-, p- processes, nuclide production)
- Nuclear reactions (mechanism, resonances, strength functions)
- Nuclear data (measurement, modeling, evaluation)
- Practical applications (chemistry, material science, imaging)
- New techniques and facilities (detection systems, radioactive beams, cold neutrons, neutron sources)
