The 'Arbeitstreffen Kernphysik' is a yearly meeting of members of German and international experts on nuclear science which goes back to 1970. The aim is to provide a regular review of progress in various subareas of nuclear science and to use this occasion to introduce young students and postdocs into the field.

The meeting is by invitation only and organized by the Schleching Organizing Committee, currently consisting of:

Peter Braun-Munzinger (chair)
Burkhard Kaempfer
Ulf Meißner
Stephan Paul
Jochen Wambach

Each year, three different subareas are chosen. A 'main speaker' for each subarea introduces the underlying physics from the basics to the currently active research front in three lectures. From the pool of invited doctoral students and postdocs the 'seminar chairs' together with the main speakers organize a series of seminars in which progress on active research is reported. For each subarea also a 'libero', usually a senior member of the community, is invited to enrich the subject. In addition, a few seniors are invited as specialist for one of the three areas. Every main speaker will have 3 times 75 minutes for his presentations (discussions included). In addition, the main speakers and seminar chairs will each organize 2 hours of seminar time for presentations by participants on a relevant topic. Liberos will have 75 minutes to talk and are not bound to one of the main topics. All participants are invited by the organizing committee, keeping in mind a good regional balance as well as insuring participation of roughly equal numbers of participants for each area. Students and postdocs interested in giving talks in the seminar series are requested to inform the appropriate main speaker or seminar chair as soon as possible. At the end of the workshop the three seminar chairs will present short 30-minute summary presentations with high-lights of the seminars. From the format outlined above it is clear that each of the main speakers as well as the seminar speakers will talk to an audience where 2/3 of the participants are not experts in their field and all talks have to be prepared accordingly. Since the field of nuclear science has grown substantially over the years, this is of premium importance for the field, but also makes for a very attractive meeting for all involved. The German Government (BMBF Verbundforschung), GSI and the town of Schleching are financially supporting this event. Following the rules applicable, we can reimburse the travel costs for all participants not being employed at Max-Planck-Institutes or Helmholtz-Centers.
