About ICFN7

*** On Wednesday 28 September a major hurricane, Ian,  hit Florida in the area near Sanibel island.  We do not have any information regarding the condition of the conference venue, the Sundial Beach Resort. We will update this page and send an email to conference participants as soon as we have any concrete information. In the meantime, our thoughts are with the people of Florida and Sanibel island and we hope for a speedy recovery. *** 

The 7th International Conference on "Fission and Properties of Neutron-Rich Nuclei" (ICFN7) will be held November 6th to November 12th, 2022 at the Sundial Beach Resort on Sanibel Island in Florida, United States. The conference is sponsored by the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), Vanderbilt University, and Los Alamos National Laboratory.

ICFN7 is the continuation of a long series of topical conferences on fission and properties of neutron-rich nuclei that started in 1997. The scope of ICFN7 will be similar to that of previous ones held in Scotland, and Sanibel Island in US. Invited and contributed speakers will present recent results of theoretical and experimental studies and future prospects in the following areas:

• Fission Modes, Reactions, and Processes: Neutron-induced fission, photo-fission, charged particle-induced fission, Coulomb fission, fusion-fission. Neutron and gamma multiplicities, energy spectra, prompt and beta-delayed emissions, fragment properties in energy and spin, fission fragment spectroscopy, cold fission, ternary fission, fission isomers, fission product yields.
• Properties of Neutron-rich Nuclei: Decay properties, masses, nuclear structure, nuclear astrophysics.
• Fragmentation and Accelerated Beams of Neutron-rich Nuclei: Coulomb excitation, transfer reactions, deep inelastic collisions and present and future facilities for rare isotope beams.
• Superheavy Elements: Current status of super heavy element research, decay spectroscopy, chemistry of SHE, production methods and current and future facilities.
• Nuclear Astrophysics: Astrophysically interesting aspects of fission and neutron-rich nuclei.


ImageThe best way to reach Sanibel Island is to fly to the Southwest Florida International Airport (Fort Myers, Florida). The distance from the Southwest Florida International Airport to the Sundial Beach Resort (Sanibel Island, Florida) is 27 miles (see Google map ).
