The Wisconsin Ice Cube Particle Astrophysics Center and the Extreme Light Infrastructure – Nuclear Physics are recruiting.
The highest French civil award “Chevalier de la legion d’honneur” was conferred on Sydney Galès for his lifelong excellent achievements in science and his great service to the community. He received the honour on November 9, 2015 from the French secretary of state for Higher education and research. The ceremony took place at the ‘Frederic and Irène Joliot-Curie’ auditorium of the institute of Nuclear Physics of Orsay (IPN-Orsay) in the presence of a large number of French, European and Japanese colleagues. It was an excellent opportunity to reminisce about and contemplate Sydney’s contributions to science and to the community of Nuclear Physics in Europe and worldwide.
Less than ten years after its selection by the European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures [ESFRI] to be part of Europe’s Roadmap of research infrastructures of pan-European interest, the Extreme Light Infrastructure’s implementation is close to completion on three sites in Czech Republic (ELI-Beams), Hungary (ELI-Attosecond) and Romania (ELI-Nuclear Physics), and the ELI project is about to become one of the “ESFRI landmarks”, for its key role as reference project of scientific excellence and of competitiveness of the European Research Area [ERA].
NuPECC, the Nuclear Physics European Collaboration Committee (http://www.nupecc.org/) is contributing to the International Year of Light [IYL2015] with a brochure “Light to Reveal the Heart of Matter”.
We would like to show the many facets how the electromagnetic spectrum – light in its broadest sense – is featured in nuclear physics research, from high-energy gamma-rays down to scintillation light and lasers, looking into nucleons and nuclei, and connecting to other fields such as astrophysics and medicine.
