Tsukuba-CCS workshop on “microscopic theories of nuclear structure and dynamics” will be held at Center for Computational Sciences (CCS), University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba, Japan, December 10-12, 2018.

This is the second event in the series of international workshops on nuclear structure and reactions held at the CCS (the first event was held in 2016.)

The objective of the workshop is to discuss the recent developments of the microscopic theories of nuclear structure and reactions, related advances in computational techniques for the upcoming exascale systems, and to create opportunities for new collaborations. The workshop will cover various topics including nuclear density functional theory and its extensions, nuclear shell model and cluster physics, fusion and fission dynamics, and nuclear reactions of low and intermediate energies.

The workshop will be held right after the 13th International Conference on Nucleus-Nucleus Collisions (NN2018), December 4-8, 2018, in Omiya, Saitama, Japan.
