The Nuclear Physics Division (NPD) of the European Physical Society (EPS) introduces a new EPS-NPD divisional conference. The Applied Nuclear Physics (ANP) conference has a particular emphasis on energy, health, space, security, environment, material science, preservation and study of cultural heritage. The ANP conference complements the already existing series of NPD divisional conferences, comprising the European Nuclear Physics Conference (EuNPC) and the Nuclear Physics in Astrophysics (NPA) Conference.

We are pleased to announce that the Applied Nuclear Physics conference (ANP) will be held on September 13 – 19, 2020 in Prague (Faculty of Architecture Czech Technical University), Czech Republic.

The Conference is organized by

Nuclear Physics Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences

in cooperation with

Nuclear Physics Board of EPS,
Center of Accelerators and Nuclear Analytical Methods of NPI,
Charles University, Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics,
and Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague.

The main organizer is Tandetron Laboratory of CANAM NPI, Rez, Czech Republic.


CANAM centre operates the instrumentation consisting of Tandetron accelerator, two cyclotrons and neutron beams with associated experimental beam lines. The large research infrastructure Center of Accelerators and Nuclear Analytical Methods (CANAM) is a center for the investigation of tasks in a wide range of scientific disciplines using beams of accelerated ions and neutrons. CANAM performs basic and interdisciplinary research in the field of interactions of ion and neutron beams with matter, and develops methods to characterize and modify properties of matter, with emphasis on nanostructure research.

The implemented analytical, characterization, modification and production methods are unique within the Czech Republic and provide opportunities and information that cannot be obtained in other ways and that are indispensable for basic and applied studies in various research fields (such as in physics, materials science, chemistry, biology, biomedicine, energetics, engineering, electronics, environmental science, archaeology, cultural heritage, etc.).
