The CSSP2020 was postponed. Now we rescheduled it for August 18-27, 2021. Concerns related to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), are lower now and the situation is more relaxed in Romania and most of Europe.

Welcome to CSSP20 in 2021!

This will be the 29th edition of a tradition that begun in 1964.

The title is: Exotic Nuclei and Nuclear/Particle Astrophysics (VIII). Physics with small accelerators and is the 8th in the latest series with the same title organized in Mamaia (2005) and Sinaia (2007, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018). It is part of ENNAS (European Network of Nuclear Astrophysics Schools, with St. Tecla and Russbach).

The Carpathian Summer School of Physics 2020, which was to be the 29th edition of a tradition that many of you know, was brutally cancelled in the summer of 2020 by the global coronavirus crisis.

Now, thru governments’ measures, the so-many-times heroic work of health personnel, and the contribution of many of our colleagues, scientists, thru protection measures and vaccines, this crisis is less imposing on us, and we believe that we can slowly start getting back to the normal life. It will, of course, be a new normal life. Given the above-mentioned improved conditions and the need to re-create the opportunities for in-person communication for all and the newer generations in our specific field, we plan to have this Carpathian school in-person, on August 18-27, 2021, in the location of its latest editions: Sinaia, Romania.

We will keep the title: Exotic Nuclei and Nuclear/Particle Astrophysics (VIII). Physics with small accelerators" and the purpose but will change the format. As we see it now, It will be smaller, in school format, for 10 days, with fewer students. However, there is no limit on the number of students, if the demand from students will be larger, we will not refuse making it larger. And the number of lecturers will be adopted.
The event is supported by the Horizon 2020 projects ENSAR2 and ChETEC-INFRA, is part of the ENNAS (European Network of Nuclear Astrophysics Schools), recognized by the Division of Nuclear Physics of EPS.
Reputed professors/scientists have committed to come and lecture. We shall announce the list in due time. We will keep most of the topics and will rely on advice from the same IAC.
We will offer fellowships for students consisting in local support (accommodation and fee). See circular for details. second week It is well understood that the event may still be cancelled if health conditions worsen in Romania, in Europe or in the countries of many participants. Currently the situation is manageable, and the expectations are that it will improve. Romania has ~42% population vaccinated ( ) and plans to go past 50% in August. Fewer restrictions will be in force if things go well.

Topics include:
  • Exotic nuclei/Nuclear physics with RIBs
  • Nuclear physics for astrophysics
  • Stellar evolution. Compact stars and supernovae
  • Astroparticle physics
  • Multi-messenger astrophysics
  • Physics at ELI-NP
  • Nuclear astrophysics with small accelerators
  • Instrumentation
  • Accelerators for medical treatments, radioisotope production and industrial applications
