From 24 – 28 February 2020, iThemba LABS is hosting the second Conference on Neutrino and Nuclear Physics (CNNP) at the African Pride Arabella Hotel & Spa near Kleinmond, South Africa. This conference aims to promote collaboration between scientists from the fields of nuclear, neutrino, astro- and dark-matter physics, and to create an environment where experiments and theories related to the interplay of these fields can be discussed.
As part of CNNP2020, a special session sponsored by the Southern African Institute for Nuclear Technology and Sciences (SAINTS), another iThemba LABS initiative, has been organised to allow masters and doctoral students doing research in basic/applied nuclear physics at South African universities to participate in CNNP2020 by presenting a poster on their research.
iThemba LABS insisted on the SAINTS poster session being included in the CNNP program since one of the top priorities at iThemba LABS is the growth and success of masters and doctoral students. Providing a platform for the students to share their research with and receive feedback from experts in the CNNP scientific community is an experience that will play an invaluable role in their professional development.
CNNP2020 promises to be an excellent conference that results in many fruitful new collaborations and we look forward to the outcomes of this week!
