The Fifth Conference on NUCLEI and MESOSCOPIC Physics (NMP17)
will be held from March 6 to March 10, 2017,
at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams – National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (FRIB/NSCL)
at Michigan State University (MSU), East Lansing, Michigan, USA.
This is the Fifth meeting in the series; began in 2004, with subsequent conferences held in 2007, 2011, and 2014.
The main goal of this series is to bring together scientists studying the objects of mesoscopic nature, which reveal generic features and allow for similar approaches and to open the way for an exchange of ideas, practical tools, and possible collaborations. Mesoscopic physics has greatly benefitted from the approaches developed in the context of nuclear physics and vice versa.
Currently, research on strongly correlated, unconventional and topological states of matter is blossoming, due to some experimental breakthroughs and theoretical developments. It often happens that different physical systems are in fact described by similar or even universal many-body theories which have their roots in underlying symmetries. Consequently, one can take advantage of these connections and the progress made in different physical contexts.
NMP17 will provide a fruitful platform for experts in a broad range of areas to interact and exchange ideas with a diverse set of topics. We hope that the resulting interactions will lead to cross-disciplinary collaborations.
FRIB/NSCL the largest university-based laboratory, with its unique capabilities for engineering and studying exotic nuclear species, serves as a natural venue for these meetings. Tour of the facility can be offered to interested participants.
The Fifth Conference is supported by the National Science Foundation, Europhysics Letters journal, Facility for Rare Isotope Beams and the Institute for Mathematical and Theoretical Physics at MSU.
To meet the goal of the meeting, most talks will be 30-40 min long review-type presentations, with enough time for discussions. The primary topics of interest are:
Many-body quantum theory
Experiments with mesoscopic systems and exotic nuclei
Open and marginally stable mesoscopic systems
Collectivity, chaos, and thermalization
Mesoscopic phase transitions
Superfluidity and superconductivity
Unconventional and topological systems
Fundamental symmetries in mesoscopic systems
Quantum computing and mesoscopic physics
If you have already expressed interest or would like to be considered as a presenter, please send a draft of your title and abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than January 31, 2017.
Note that we can recommend selected talks for publication in the Europhysics Letters journal.
On-line registration will begin November 30, 2016.
The early registration conference fee $100, will cover a welcome reception on Monday, March 6; coffee breaks and lunches during the conference, and a conference dinner on Thursday evening, March 9.
Late registrations completed after February 15 will require a $130 conference fee.
Payment may by credit card, check, cash, and account transfer for MSU participants.
Student registrations are $80 conference fee.
We have modest funds to support some student participation. Please send requests to email@example.com by December 20, 2016, for consideration.
We would be grateful for your early registration (listing your personal participation), as well as the abstract of the planned presentation, if applicable.
We hope to see you in East Lansing next spring.
