On JPhys+ we’ll be talking about conferences in every subject, in any location. These events are often where collaborative science comes together, and are a crucial part of sharing and developing new ideas and knowledge. It isn’t just about the big conferences either, small workshops and meetings are just as crucial to this process.
This week in Valparaíso, Chile, Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María hosts the 7th international conference on Quarks and Nuclear Physics.
It’s all about quarks, hadrons, the nuclear medium and the theories and techniques used to learn more about these systems. It’s a great focussed conference for a full week, and in Valparaíso the researchers have a vibrant city and beautiful weather to enjoy what Chile has to offer.
The book of abstracts is on the conference website with some interesting talks, including one from Jacek Rożynek studying dense, finite nuclear matter. You may want to read his latest paper on the topic:
Nuclear equation of state and finite nucleon volumes
