4th Heavy Ion Accelerator Symposium for Fundamental and Applied Research
International Nuclear Structure Conference
14 – 18 September 2015
Electric Monopole Transitions Satellite Workshop
11 – 12 September 2015
The staff of the Department of Nuclear Physics at the Australian National
University would like to invite you to join us in commemorating the
achievements of Professor George Dracoulis in the field of Nuclear
Structure, by attending the 2015 Heavy Ion Accelerator Symposium in
Canberra, Australia, from September 14 to 18.
The scientific program will concentrate on the latest research in
experimental and theoretical nuclear structure physics, with some
additional focus on those particular fields of gamma-ray and electron
spectroscopy where George made his most significant contributions.
There will be a number of invited speakers with the majority of talks
taken from contributed abstracts, chosen with guidance from the
International Advisory Committee.
We hope that many friends and colleagues of George will be able to make
the trip "down under" during the Canberra springtime for this meeting.
In addition, a satellite workshop, "Electric Monopole Transitions", will
be held prior to the conference on the 11 and 12 of September 2015.
The subjects of the workshop will cover areas of broad interest related
to electron and pair conversion processes with special emphasis on E0
- Current challenges in nuclear structure studies using electron spectroscopy
- Shape co-existence in atomic nuclei
- Internal conversion of highly charged ions
- Theory of conversion electron and electron-positron pair emission
- New experimental facilities
Please note these events in your diaries and register your preliminary interest in attending via email to the
Questions about the scientific content of the meetings may be addressed to

More information concerning invited speakers, the meeting websites, submission and registration deadlines, advisory and organising
committee members, as well as meeting costs, will be sent by the end of February.
