Dear Colleagues,

The 21th CNS International Summer School (A3F-CNSSS22), hosted by Center for Nuclear Study, the University of Tokyo, will be held for Aug.20 - 24, 2022. The school is co-hosted by JSPS A3-Foresight program, Kyushu Univ. Super Heavy Element Center, and is supported by RIKEN Nishina Center and the Research Council of Norway. The school is cooperated by ANPhA.

The venue of the school is Shinrin-Koen Heritage Resort. The school aims to foster the young generation of nuclear physicists. Before the covid pandemic, the participants of the school met together to discuss the lectures and beyond  at the relaxed atmosphere after each  school day, which  enhanced  the mutual understanding between participants. Currently, even though the pandemic has yet to settle, we will resume the tradition while  maintaining  social distance. Participants in-person are encouraged to discuss physics during  and  after the classes.

Registration fee below for participants in-person is asked to pay in cash at the on-site registration.

  • Staff scientists    3,000 JPY
  • PD                       2,000 JPY
  • Others                 1,000 JPY

The lecturers of the A3F-CNSSS22 include,

  • Prof. Stefan Frauendorf (NortreDome USA), (on-line) , " Quantal Rotation (TBC)"

  • Prof. Shunsuke Kurosawa (Tohoku Univ, Japan), "Scintillation counter (TBC)"

  • Prof. Satoshi  N. Nakamura (Univ. of Tokyo, Japan), "Hypernuclei"

  • Prof. Sunniva Siem (Univ. of Oslo), (on-line), "Experimental Level densities and Photon strength functions, and medical application of nuclear physics"

  • Dr. Vetle Ingeberg (Univ of Oslo), "Oslo method"

  • Prof. Angela Bracco (Univ. of Milano), (on-line), "Physics with AGATA (TBC)"

  • Dr. Shintaro Go (RIKEN, Japan), “Overview of RIBF/Spectroscopy of exotic nuclei”

  • Prof. Yutaka Utsuno (JAEA/CNS, Japan), "Large-scale shell-model calculations: from low-lying spectra to compound states"

The registration is now open from Registration section of the web page.

As the past A3F-CNSSS, we will have young scientist sessions where the Ph.D students and Post-docs contribute to the oral presentation.  From 2018 we select a few persons from the presentations as the winners of “CNSSS Young Scientist Awards”. The certificate will be given to the winners. 

  We plan to support the accommodation fee and travel expenses, although it is limited. The support will primarily come to those who perform an oral presentation. If you wish our support, please make a registration and submit your abstract from the web page of A3F-CNSSS22 by July 29st (Fri).


We’re looking forward to seeing you at the school.


With best regards
