In light of the enthusiastic response of the international
nuclear physics community to the International conference entitled
"Frontiers In NUclear STructure, Astrophysics and Reactions" (FINUSTAR),
we are organizing the second one of the series, FINUSTAR-2, at Agios
Nikolaos, Crete, on September 10-14, 2007. Like the previous conference,
FINUSTAR-2 aims at covering a wide spectrum of research activities,
both theoretical and experimental, in nuclear structure, nuclear astrophysics
and nuclear reactions, that have been interfering strongly over the
last years mainly by the utilization of common instrumentation and
With this in mind, FINUSTAR-2 will cover many
topics such as:
* Nuclear structure at the extremes
* Collective phenomena and phase transitions in nuclei
* Synthesis and structure of the heaviest elements
* Exotic excitations (wobbling, magnetic rotation, band termination
and beyond, ... )
* Nuclear masses and ground state properties.
* Ab-initio calculations and the shell model.
* Developments in mean field theories, cluster models and molecular
* Nucleon scattering and reaction dynamics of light and heavy ions
at low and intermediate energies.
* Nuclear reactions off stability and indirect methods.
* Weak-interaction processes in nuclear astrophysics - Neutrino physics.
* Nucleosynthesis in the cosmos and nuclear physics aspects.
* Radioactive and exotic relativistic beams.
* Facilities and instrumentation for the future.
The conference venue is the Iberostar Mirabello Beach Hotel
(4*) located on the northern coast 2 Km north of the town of Aghios
Nikolaos and about 70 Km east of the capital city of Heraklion. The
conference will start on Monday morning (September 10) and end on
Friday afternoon (September 14). A welcome reception will take place
on Sunday evening, September 9. The conference banquet will be held
on Thursday evening, September 13. The proceedings of the conference
will be published and the name of the publisher as well as detailed
information on fees, accommodation costs and deadlines will be announced
in the forthcoming circular.
