The workshop "Intersection of Nuclear Structure and Direct Reaction" will be held at the Tokai Culture Center for three days from February 28 to March 1, 2024.
Recent developments in nuclear physics have elucidated exotic nuclear structure such as new magic numbers and exotic clustering. Even near stable nuclei, state-of-the-art theories provide new interpretations for well-known nuclear-structure problems like the nature of the side bands. To establish such an interesting scenario, direct reactions play a crucial role as a unique tool to access the characteristics of those states. The importance of direct reactions is becoming more evident in the study of exotic nuclei, which can only be accessed by few available methods. Hence it is a good time for specialists in nuclear structure and nuclear reactions to get together and to consider future collaboration schemes.
The topics of this workshop include
This workshop will be held as a part of the activities of the Reimei Research Program "Unveiling nuclear shells and correlations in exotic nuclei through knockout reactions" funded by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency.
Those who want to give a presentation should send us the title using
this form by
January 8, 2024.
NO CONFIRMATION EMAIL WILL BE SENT to you, and please save the answer by yourself if necessary.
If the number of applications exceeds the capacity of the workshop, we will organize a poster session. The result of the selection will be notified in the middle of January.
All the participants are asked to register through the form by February 12, 2024. NO CONFIRMATION EMAIL WILL BE SENT to you, and please save the answer by yourself if necessary.
The registration fee is 1,000 JPY, and will be collected at the registration desk on site.
The closest restaurant is located more than 500 m away from the workshop venue, while there is a convenience store nearby. You can ask for a lunch box upon online registration.
The workshop dinner will be held in the evening of February 29 at a restaurant near Mito Station. We will also organize a small workshop tour to Mito before the dinner.
A preliminary program is available.
The nearest station to the workshop venue is Tokai Station on the JR Joban Line, which is located about 150 km northeast of Tokyo. See the map below for a schematic view.
(1) From Haneda Airport
First, take the Keikyu Airport Line to reach Shinagawa Station (about 20 minutes). Second, take a Hitachi or Tokiwa Limited Express of JR Joban Line at Shinagawa Station, and get off at Mito or Katsuta Station. The Limited Express is available every 30 minutes and it takes about 90 minutes from Shinagawa to Mito or Katsuta. Third, take a local train from Mito or Katsuta to Tokai (about 15 minutes).
(2) From Narita Airport
There are several ways, and here we show some relatively easy ways (All the ways are somewhat complicated). First, take a Keisei Skyliner of the Narita Sky Access Line. You can get off at Shin-Kamagaya or Nippori. If you get off at Shin-Kamagaya, take a local train of the Tobu Urban Park Line for Kashiwa, and then take a Tokiwa Limited Express at Kashiwa to go to Mito or Katsuta. If you get off at Nippori, go to Ueno by using JR Yamanote Line, take a Hitachi or Tokiwa Limited Express of JR Joban Line, and get off at Mito or Katsuta Station. After getting off at Mito or Katsuta, take a local train from Mito or Katsuta to Tokai (about 15 minutes).
You can get the timetable of local trains from Mito (Katsuta) to Tokai and from Tokai to Mito (Katsuta).
Tokai Culture Center is located about 1km away from Tokai Station. Since there is almost no public transportation from Tokai Station, please come there on foot. A schematic map below would be helpful to find the location. If you want to spot the venue by Google map etc., use "Tokai Cultural Center" instead of "Tokai Culture Center" or the exact address "768-15 Funaba, Tokai, Ibaraki".
We ask the participants to book a room by themselves. There is almost no hotel in Tokai, but several hotels are available around Mito and Katsuta.
