The International Nuclear Physics Conference – INPC

The International Nuclear Physics Conference is one of the major events of the global Nuclear Physics community. This important event takes place once every 3 years in various cities around the globe with recent conferences held in cities like Florence, Vancouver and Tokyo. The event brings together some of the most important and brilliant minds in the field of Nuclear Physics with the aim of exploring the most fascinating issues in this field.

An interesting feature of the conference is its support for students. It encourages the participation of young scientists working on topics covered by the event. Students may apply for support if they meet the criteria set forth by the organizers of the events. The best oral and poster presentations delivered by students will also be awarded a prize.
