FUSTIPEN Topical Meeting
«The microscopic description of light nuclei»
March 11-12, 2013, GANIL, Caen, France

This FUSTIPEN Topical Meeting is a follow-on to last year’s meeting on “Understanding Light Nuclei Microscopically”, held at GANIL in March 2012. That meeting focused on how light nuclei can serve as unique laboratories for rigorously testing various many-body approaches. This year’s workshop will continue on this theme but will observe the progress made in determining the NN and NNN interactions from Effective Field Theory; in producing “soft” versions of these interactions, suitable for direct applications in nuclear structure calculations; and in improving existing many-body techniques as well as in developing new approaches, among other possible topics.
With the new rare-isotope beam facilities coming online, there is now considerable interest not only in bound systems but also in the unbound properties of nuclei, so-called open quantum systems. Much work is currently going on, regarding the inclusion of the continuum in nuclear structure calculations, such as the No Core Gamow Shell Model and the No Core Shell Model plus Resonating Group Method.

This topical two-day meeting will review the status of these structure and reaction studies in light nuclei, both regarding theoretical advances and experimental opportunities. We invite those participants who believe that they can contribute to the discussion to contact us at The format of the meeting will be kept informal, so as to promote as many discussions and interactions among the participants, as possible.
