The 13th International Symposium on Nuclei in the Cosmos [NIC-XIII] will be held in Debrecen, Hungary from 7-11 July 2014.

NIC-XII is part of a series of biennal conferences addressed to nuclear physicists, astrophysicists, cosmochemists to survey the recent achievements in nuclear astrophysics.

The NIC-XIII program will cover in particular the following topics: cosmology and big bang nucleosynthesis, element production, stellar evolution and stellar explosions, evidences of nucleosynthesis in stars and in presolar grains, experiments in nuclear astrophysics, nuclei far from stability, and nuclear theory in astrophysics.

Limited support is available for students and young scientists. Abstract submission has been extended to 6 April 2014.

Further information are available on the NIC-XIII website.

An overview of Neutron Facilities in Asia and Oceania

Since the mid 1940’s, the research reactors had provided stable and reliable neutron sources for experimental research of neutron scattering. By recognizing unique features and powerful probe ability of neutrons, particularly for material and life science, Europe and North America accelerated building high-flux beam reactors dedicated to neutron scattering in 1960’s and 1970’s. A large number of neutron users in these regions resulted in the formation of the European Neutron Scattering Association [ENSA] and the Neutron Scattering Society of America [NSSA], respectively.
In the Asia-Oceania Region, on the other hand, India and Australia initiated neutron scattering...
