Shape Coexistence Workshop 2020

Due to the worldwide effort to contain and slow the spread of coronavirus, the Workshop will be postponed. We will monitor the situation, and decide on a new date to try to accommodate as many of the intended speakers as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope to see you in Guelph at a later date.

The workshop on Shape Coexistence, E0 Transitions, and Related Topics will be held at the University of Guelph, following the successful one held at Saclay, France, in Oct. 2017, and will have as its main goals:

  • to discuss the recent progress on shape coexistence in nuclei and E0 transitions 
  • to focus on those aspects which we do not understand, have insufficient data, or for which theoretical developments are required.

The workshop will bring together the specialists in the field working on shape coexistence in order to take stock of where we are, and especially what needs to be done, to further our understanding of this fascinating phenomena. The formal sessions of the workshop will begin on Monday, May 11, and finish on Friday, May 15.  Invited participation is limited to 30 - 40 researchers.  

Paul Garrett (Guelph), Emmanuel Clement (GANIL), Magda Zielinska (CEA Saclay) co-chairs
