Second Announcement

Nuclear Structure at the Limits of Stability

A Workshop on Nuclear Structure Theory

to be held at

the University of Surrey from 9th to 11th January 2003

The Nuclear Theory Group at the University of Surrey has concentrated its efforts for many years on the study of nuclear reactions and few-body systems. Recently we have appointed two young theorists, Makito Oi and Paul Stevenson, who specialise in studies of different aspects of nuclear structure. We felt that this is an opportune time for us to host a workshop on nuclear structure theory with the aim of announcing that we are now active in the field and open to collaboration. At the same time Professor Ron Johnson, who led the group for many years, has just retired. To celebrate his achievements one of the sessions of the workshop will be devoted to talks related to his work.

During the meeting the 2002 Lise Meitner prize of the European Physical Society will be awarded to Professor J P Elliott of the University of Sussex.

The talks will cover a wide range of topics of current theoretical interest. This will include all the latest developments on the shell model, mean field models and studies of states at high angular momentum. The list of members of our International Advisory Committee can be found at IAC.html and please see Programme for the list of speakers.

The Workshop starts with lunch on Thursday 9th of January, and ends after lunch on Saturday 11th January.
