Group Picture from WNPPC2018The Winter Nuclear and Particle Physics Conference is a national meeting for the Canadian subatomic physics community, with a special focus on providing a forum for junior researchers (students and postdocs) and interaction with groups across Canada.

The 2018 meeting is being organised by Carleton University and SNOLAB, and as usual will feature sessions focusing on the research areas of interest to the Canadian community (both experimental and theoretical). There will be a number of invited talks by experts in these fields.

  • Electroweak and Higgs physics
  • Neutrino properties
  • QCD and hadrons
  • Physics beyond the Standard Model
  • Nuclear structure
  • Nuclear and particle astrophysics

When registering, please indicate whether you will be contributing a talk, so that we know to expect your abstract. Graduate students in particular are encouraged to attend, and to present their work in front of their peers from across the country. Prizes will be awarded for the best student talks, funded by our sponsors.

The meeting runs from Thursday February 15th, until Sunday February 18. We hope most participants will arrive the evening of Wednesday, February 14th, or at the latest Thursday, February 15th. There will be a Thursday evening session.

  • A special social event (reception) will take place Saturday evening.
  • Breakfasts and lunches are part of the conference for the participants (please select your lunch option at registration).
  • All the participants need to plan their dinner and return for the evening session.
  • Companion fee includes only the social event.
