The 2013 ICNT Program at FRIB

Symmetry Energy in the Context of New Radioactive Beam Facilities and Astrophysics
FRIB, East Lansing, Michigan
July 15 - August 9, 2013


May 9, 2013

Dear Colleagues,

The first International Collaboration in Nuclear Theory (ICNT) topical program at FRIB is on "Symmetry Energy in the Context of New Radioactive Beam Facilities and Astrophysics". It will be held July 15 to August 9, 2013 at NSCL/FRIB, East Lansing, Michigan, USA.

This year program will focus on the symmetry energy at a variety of densities, accessed through heavy-ion collisions, other nuclear experiments, and through astrophysical observations. The program will critically examine past and future experiments and their theoretical interpretations aiming at determination of the symmetry energy. In addition, we will discuss implications of the symmetry energy for astrophysics and for dense QCD. The last week of the program will be dedicated to future explorations of the symmetry energy, through new experiments, observations, and calculations. These plans, along with the present status of the field, will be written up in a final report.

Anyone who would like to initiate collaborations on nuclear symmetry energy is encouraged to attend part or the whole program. Some local support is still available. More information about the program and registration can be found on the ICNT website Those interested in attending or giving an informal talk should email with the dates you will attend and a paragraph describing the work you propose to do during your stay and if appropriate, title of talk before 15 June, 2013. Below is the current list of participants.

Additionally, the NuSYM13 Symposium will take place during the second week of ICNT program. More details are available on the NuSYM13 website

We look forward to seeing you in Michigan!
