Hotel Gof Mar

Welcome to JdA2018


It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 48èmes Journées des Actinides (JdA2018), to be held in Hotel Golf Mar, Praia de Porto Novo, PORTUGAL, between 21 and 24 March 2018. This conference is part of a long series of annual conferences following the 47èmes Journées des Actinides, which took place in Karpacz, Poland between 26 and 30 March 2017.

The Journées des Actinides is an informal meeting that covers all aspects (fundamental and applied) related to the physics and chemistry of the 5f elements, their alloys and compounds. It brings together experts and young researchers from the different fields involved, emphasizing exchanges and discussions on the current issues in actinide sciences.

JdA2018 always encourage open discussion on different topics, in a mixture of oral presentations and poster sessions. It encompasses, but is not limited, to Condensed matter and electronic structure, Inorganic and organometallic chemistry, Networks, large instruments and new facilities, Nuclear forensics, Reactors, nuclear fuel cycle, environment, Strongly correlated behavior, Surface science, etc.

Experts, scientists, students and young researchers from Academia and Industry all around Europe and and other continents are invited and expected for attending JdA2018 and discuss the state-of-the-art of the actinide sciences.

The 12th School on the Physics and Chemistry of the Actinides (12th SPCA)

The 12th SPCA will be organized as a tutorial introductory session introductory to the JdA2018 conference. It will be held between 19 and 21 March 2018 in the Campus Tecnológico e Nuclear, Instituto Superior Técnico, in Bobadela near Lisboa, PORTUGAL. The school is an unique opportunity for students (and others) to gain knowledge from expert master-classes in various areas of different actinide science aspects. It is an ideal chance for students and young researchers to meet, question and learn from experts in a relaxed and friendly environment.

We feel confident that you will enjoy 12th SPCA and JdA2018, which will be also a wonderful opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones, and hope that the conference will be a memorable event.
