The conference program will consist of tutorial talks, invited lectures, contributed presentations, and a permanent poster exhibition (the best posters will be awarded).
The conference will start on Sunday June 24th and it will finish on Friday June 29th at lunch.
At the beginning of the conference a session of four tutorial talks will introduce the general concepts of photonuclear reactions (Andreas Zilges, University of Cologne, Germany), laser-driven particle acceleration (Paul McKenna, University of Strathclyde, UK), high intensity lasers (Christopher Barty, University of California at Irvine, USA), and accelerator-based gamma sources (Ryoichi Hajima, Institutes for Quantum & Radiological Science and Applications, Japan). Tutorial talks will complement the scientific program of the conference by providing detailed information on the areas of research related to the main topics of the conference.
