The Winter Nuclear and Particle Physics Conference is a national meeting for the Canadian subatomic physics community, with a special focus on providing a forum for junior researchers (students and postdocs) and interaction with groups across Canada.

The 2011 meeting is being organised by the Simon Fraser University and TRIUMF, and as usual will feature sessions focusing on the research areas of interest to the Canadian community (both experimental and theoretical). There will be a number of invited talks by experts in these fields.

  • Nuclear physics and reactions; nuclear astrophysics
  • Standard Model and the hadronic weak interactions
  • Anti-matter physics
  • Neutrino physics
  • High energy astrophysics
  • Particle physics and QCD

When registering, please indicate whether you will be contributing a talk, so that we know to expect your abstract. Graduate students in particular are encouraged to attend, and to present their work in front of their peers from across the country. Prizes will be awarded for the best student talks, funded jointly by the CAP's Divisions of Particle (PPD) and Nuclear (DNP) Physics.

The registration and abstract deadline is January 17.

The meeting runs from the evening of Friday February 18, until miday on Sunday February 20, with Saturday afternoon free, and it precedes the Lake Louise Winter Institute which commences at Chateau Lake Louise on February 20.
