30 Years of Research with the iThemba LABS Cyclotrons @ iThemba LABS, Cape Town
Oct 25 – Oct 26 all-day
6th International Conference on Collective Motion in Nuclei under Extreme Conditions (COMEX6) @ Protea Hotel Fire and Ice, Cape Town
Oct 29 – Nov 2 all-day

Registration is open for the 6th International Conference on Collective Motion in Nuclei under Extreme Conditions (COMEX6).  Visit the website at for more information.

Day one of COMEX6, the 29th October 2018, will take place at iThemba LABS with a special opening session which the Minister of the Department of Science and Technology Ms Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane, will attend.  The rest of the conference, from 30 October until 2 November will take place at the Protea Hotel Fire and Ice in Cape Town.

Workshop on: Spectrum, Presentation, Analysis, Manipulation, and Simulation (SPAMS) @ iThemba LABS, Cape Town
Nov 12 – Nov 14 all-day
Lecturers/facilitators: Dr Tanya Hutton (Dept. of Physics, UCT), Dr Pete Jones (Dept. of Subatomic Physics, iThemba LABS), Dr Philippos Papadakis (Univ. of Liverpool), Dr Carl Unsworth (STFC Daresbury Laboratory, UK )
Venue: Auditorium and Computer Lab, iThemba LABS

Students will be introduced briefly to different data acquisition systems used in nuclear physics experiments involving gamma-­‐ray spectrometry. Ways to analyze these spectra to determine energy calibrations, peak areas, efficiency calibrations and peak-­‐to-­‐total ratios, amongst others, will be discussed. Ways to convert spectra from one format to another (for software compatibility) and to present publication/presentation quality spectra will also be discussed. Students will also be given a brief introduction to spectrum simulation. The workshop will involve a mix of lectures and student hands-­‐on work in the iThemba LABS Computer Lab.
