27th ASRC International Workshop " Nuclear Fission and Exotic Nuclei "

Ibraraki Quantum Beam Research Center, Tokai, Japan

Supported by Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC ), JAEA

Organized by the Research Group of Heavy Element Nuclear Science of the ASRC ( here )
and Nuclear Physics Group of the University of York ( here )

An international workshop : "Nuclear Fission and Exotic Nuclei" will be held on 1st-2nd December 2015 organized by ASRC of JAEA , Tokai, Japan. The meeting will mainly be devoted to new experimental and theoretical achievements in fission, super-heavy nuclei, nuclear reaction and structure of exotic nuclei. Discussion will also be given on the planned new facility at J-PARC, where 400 MeV proton beam can be used. This is the 5th meeting in the series of workshops held at ASRC (Tokai). The links to four earlier workshops can be found below.

Meeting on Future Facility at J-PARC

In November 30th, we will organize a satellite meeting on future facility at J-PARC to use 400 MeV proton beam for ISOL type experiment. Initial physics and technical ideas for such a development at J-PARC will be discussed. Those who wish to participate in the meeting, should tick the respective field in the registration form. The meeting place will be announced in a later communication.

Preliminary program of the meeting can be downloaded .

International lodging of JAEA
Most of the participants are expected to stay at the "Masago International Lodging" . It is located close to the Nuclear Science Research Institute, about 0.8 km from the workshop building (J-PARC User Office). It costs about~JPY2000 per night. Information and map of the lodging can be downloaded . The number of rooms is limited. Please send your request for the lodging as soon as possible with the registration form.
For those who prefers to stay in a hotel, there is a range of hotels in Mito-city (15 minutes by train from Tokai). The costs are from ~JPY 7000 per night. Please, contact the organizers for further help with this, if you wish to stay in a hotel.


The most convenient international airport is NARITA/TOKYO. The easiest way to come to the Mito-city and/or Tokai is to use the Shuttle Bus (Rose Liner, JPY 3,100), which stopes at the "Tokai JR-Station (East Exit)".
All these accesses are shown HERE.

Access from Tokai-JR station to JAEA

JAEA bus is available for workdays from JR Tokai station to JAEA Main gate ( Time table ). To get into the Bus, please show your PASSPORT or your Identification card to the bus driver. TAXI is available (about JPY 1500).
