March 22 - April 12, 2017


Dear Colleagues,

The 2017 International Collaboration in Nuclear Theory (ICNT) topical program at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) is going to be on "Extracting Bulk Properties of Neutron-Rich Matter with Transport Models in Bayesian Perspective". It will be held from March 22 to April 12, 2017 at FRIB, East Lansing, Michigan, USA.

Our tentative schedule is as follows:

Week 1: March 22-24
Transport Code Comparison Writing group meeting
Week 2: March 27-30
Transport 2017 workshop (
Week 3: April 3-8
Focused lectures, talks and discussions on
  • Bayesian analysis with transport simulations
  • implementation of microscopic interactions in the transport models
  • applications of equation of state extracted from heavy-ion collisions in astrophysics models
Week 4: April 10-12
Writing group meetings on summary of ICNT 2017 and writing assignments

Anyone who would like to participate in or initiate collaborations on the relevant topics outlined above is encouraged to attend part of or the whole program. Some local support is available. More information about the program and registration can be found on the ICNT website Those interested in attending in and contributing to the program of ICNT2017 should fill out the registration form with the proposed dates of attendance and a short description of the work you propose to do during your stay and if appropriate, the title of a talk.
