General information about the CINP, including the Welcome/Home page
The goal of the CINP Junior Scientist Travel Support Program is to allow graduate students and PDFs to broaden their research horizon and become more mature scientists. Initially, the program supports two types of expenditures:
nEDM2017 -- Challenges of the world wide experimental search for the electric dipole moment of the neutron
Advances in Radioactive Isotope Science (ARIS 2017)
11th International Workshop on Neutrino-Nucleus Scattering in the few GeV Region (NuINT 2017)

Nuclear Astrophysics Research Activities (coming soon)
How are the elements formed and distributed in the universe? What is the role of nuclei in shaping the evolution of the universe? Nucleosynthesis that occurred during the cooling following the Big Bang gave rise to primordial abundances of the lightest elements H, He, and Li. Nearly all other chemical elements in the universe are produced as a result of nuclear reactions in stars or cataclysmic events events at the end of a star's life. The reaction products are expelled into the interstellar medium by stellar winds or events such as nova and supernova explosions, and neutron star mergers.
The CINP and IPP were asked by NSERC to prepare a joint document on "the context of Canadian subatomic physics research" for distribution to the Subatomic Physics Evaluation Section (SAPES) shortly before their 2014 fall policy meeting, with the opportunity for the committee to ask questions on it. This was in response to our request to reinstate the discontinued SAPES fall site visits, given their value to both international and domestic members of the committee in understanding the Canadian research context and environment.
Compute Canada had a call in June 2014 for White Papers for Sustainable Planning for Advanced Research Computing (SPARC). Due to the many common requirements, it was felt that a much stronger case could be made if a common document on the "Computing requirements for the Canadian subatomic physics community" could be prepared on behalf of both the Institute of Particle Physics and the Canadian Institute of Nuclear Physics.
