SNP School 2020


The International School for Strangeness Nuclear Physics 2020 (SNP school 2020) will be held
in Dec/2 (Wed) - 5 (Sat), 2020
at J-PARC, Tokai, Japan.

First Announcement

We are pleased to announce that the SNP School 2020 will be held at J-PARC, Tokai, Japan, from December 2nd to 5th, 2020 hosted by J-PARC, RCNP-Osaka, ELPH-Tohoku, KEK-IINAS, ASRC JAEA, ANPhA, RIKEN Nishina Center and GP-PU of Tohoku Univ. This is the ninth one of a series which has been held every year since 2012. Recently, the SNP School were held in 2017 at Tokai (J-PARC), 2018 in Osaka (RCNP) and 2019 at Sendai (Tohoku U).

Since we cannot predict the situation of COVID-19 in December now, the style of the school, either person to person or remote, may be changed in a flexible manner but we would like to fix the duration of the school, December 2 - 5 (four days), 2020. If the situation is still difficult or unclear in several months, we will decide to prepare the remote style, which will be announced before you need to plan your travel. If the situation is getting improved, possible participants can attend the school at Tokai, while others still in remote, namely the style of the school will be hybrid.

The school will have several lectures and topical talks on strangeness nuclear physics as well as other related and wider subjects from hadron to cold atom physics. We believe that such wider discussions are useful for young physicists and also to researches conducted at accelerator facilities for hadron beams such as J-PARC (Japan), GSI and FAIR (Germany), RCNP (Japan) and for electron beams as CEBAF at Jefferson Lab (USA), MAMI-C at Mainz University (Germany) and ELPH at Tohoku University (Japan) etc. Lectures by leading physicists will overview related subjects both from experiment and theory, and topical talks on recent progress and future prospects of the fields will be also given.

The tour to visit accelerator facility of J-PARC is planned as a part of the school, if the school will be held on-site. In addition, the school will organize a "young researchers' session" to give a chance of oral and poster presentations by young participants. We encourage you to present your research activities in this session as well as to enjoy the lectures.

Details of the SNP School 2020 will be announced later on the web. If you have any questions about SNP School 2020, please contact us via the following organizer address: ("_AT_" should be replaced to "@". )
