The 2019 Gordon Research Conference on Nuclear Chemistry will discuss the recent advances in nuclear structure and reactions. The focus will be on the ongoing search for regular and simple patterns in the structure of complex nuclei and new variables governing the dynamics between colliding composite systems of nucleons. Recent results obtained using innovative accelerator facilities and allied instrumentation coupled with advances in nuclear theory will be discussed including their impact, also in other fields. In the unique format and spirit of the Gordon Research Conferences a large amount of time will be available for formal and informal exchange of ideas and sharing new results to discuss the progress made and the steps for the coming decade. There will be time dedicated for poster presentations, providing for participants to have in-depth discussions on their work. Continuing the tradition started in the 2011 Nuclear Chemistry GRC, a Gordon student/postdoctoral Seminar (GRS) prior to the conference will be organized. This two-day event will allow younger nuclear scientists to present their research and network with their peers in a stimulating and friendly atmosphere.
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. The preliminary program will be available by October 15, 2018. Please check back for updates.
