Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions


Scientific Programme:

The scope of the TAN11 Conference includes the traditional topics in the field of transactinide science, covering both physical and chemical research:
  • Physics experiments synthesis and properties
  • Spectroscopy
  • Nuclear physics theory
  • Experimental chemical studies
  • Theory on chemical properties of the transactinides.

The conference will include plenary sessions, which will consist of invited talks and oral contributions. Participants wishing to present their work should submit a 1 page abstract (17 cm x 25.5 cm) of their talk. By the beginning of the Conference a Booklet of Abstracts, consisting of all abstracts submitted to the Organizing Committee by April 20, 2011, will be printed. The Booklet will be distributed to all participants during the conference registration. The abstracts should be completely ready for direct reproduction and submitted by electronic mail to the TAN'11 Organizing committee (tan2011@jinr.ru).

The oral presentations will be selected among the applications. The accepted contributors will be notified by the end of May 2011. A poster session is also planned.
In addition, we plan to organize a so-called directors session, where leading scientists will speak about their vision on the future of transactinide science.
The conference programme will also include a session dedicated to the 100th anniversary of awarding the Nobel Prize for chemistry to Maria Sklodowska-Curie.
