Utyonkov will report on the status of the Factory of superheavy elements. A. V. Yeremin will present prospects for the study of multinucleon transfer reactions.
The agenda of the meeting includes also the scientific reports “Fusion reactions in nuclear astrophysics” (V. V. Sargsyan) and “Prompt neutron investigation in nuclear fission induced by resonance neutrons” (S. Zeynalov).
The meeting of the PAC NP members with the JINR Directorate will open the second day of the event. Following the tradition, the agenda of the PAC meeting includes poster reports by young scientists, awarding of the authors of the best poster presentations of the previous PAC meeting.
