FRIB-TA Topical Programs

2018 Call for Proposals [deadline Jan. 15 2018, see below]

The FRIB Theory Alliance is introducing the FRIB-TA topical programs, which will bring together up to 30 theorists and experimentalists for a period of up to three weeks to address particular issues relevant for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams. Researchers are expected, during that time, to discuss the problem, identify strategies and collaborate on solutions. At the end of the topical program, a deliverable must be made available. The programs will be hosted at FRIB and the FRIB Theory Alliance will support local costs for participants.

We are now soliciting proposals for programs to run in the Summer/Fall of 2018:

The proposal for topical programs should not exceed 3 pages and should contain a description of the scientific project, covering the scientific motivation, the connection to FRIB (for example through the relevance to particular experiments), and specific deliverables. It should also include the names and affiliations of critical experts that are needed for the effort to be successful and who intend to participate in the program for a significant fraction of time.

Proposals must be submitted by January 15th, 2018, by email to horowit@indiana.edu *and* deliyski@frib.msu.edu. The selection will be made by the FRIB-TA Board by the end of February.

Please look at the Previous ICNT programs for examples of the types of programs intended (e.g., The r-process nucleosynthesis: connecting FRIB with the cosmos). If you have questions, please contact Chuck Horowitz (horowit@indiana.edu).
