Defining the Nuclear Physics Mid Term Plan in Italy


The next years will see the completion of the upgrade programs in the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) laboratories: SPES at LNL (, POTLNS at LNS (, LUNA-MV at LNGS ( These will make available new beams and facilities to the nuclear physics community and it is timely and beneficial to carry out a scientific dialogue on the foreseen prospective physics program for the next 5-7 years’ timescale. The Nuclear Physics Mid Term Plan in Italy, organized by the Nuclear Physics Division (CSN3) of INFN, will coordinates these discussions, stimulating new ideas and involving the whole international community interested in such experimentations. The occasion will also involve the interests and the passion of the new generation of nuclear physics researchers that will be the leading forces in the exploitation of the new facilities.

The workshop will provide a unique opportunity for the entire nuclear physics community to come together to document a scientific vision for the future of nuclear physics in Italy. It will aim at identifying the most important questions for the field of nuclear physics and the tools to address them, underlying possible synergies and complementarities among the nuclear physics laboratories in Italy and the different experiments. The workshop will involve national and international potential users, over a broad range of topics spanning from applications to nuclear astrophysics and nuclear structure and dynamics. The contributions and participation will be organized in specific working groups coordinated by conveners, with the task to discuss and prepare summary reports during the final events in the laboratories.

The Nuclear Physics Mid Term Plan will be organized in a series of sub-workshops that will take place at the South National Laboratory (LNS) on April 4/5, at the Legnaro National Laboratory (LNL) on April 11/12 and at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS) and Frascati National Laboratory (LNF) on a date to be defined. In parallel with the organization of the workshop, a review work will be prepared including the physics ideas proposed by the community, under the direction of the conveners.

Registrations in the working groups are opened. Agendas and presentations of all meetings will be available at the same website.


6th INtelligent Signal Processing for FrontIEr Research and Industry (INFIERI) (2)


Cutting edge instrumentation is a driving force for scientific progress, in Physics, Astrophysics as well as in many other scientific disciplines like Medicine. Novel sophisticated signal processing schemes are a key element in building the advanced instruments of the 21st century. It is around all aspects of the signal processing chain that the scientific and technological programme of the INFIERI schools is built.
Following successful editions in Oxford, Paris, Hamburg, Sao Paulo and Wuhan the 6th edition of the school will be held from August 23 till September 4, 2021, at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM).
