Call for Papers
ENC 2016 provides a platform for the nuclear science community to share their experience and to learn about the latest developments going on in nuclear research and their practical applications. It will furthermore exploit synergy among scientists, industry representatives, policy-makers and citizens on wider societal issues that impact upon how the nuclear science community carries out its work.
ENS and the ENC 2016 Programme Committee are now calling for abstracts in the following areas:

Conference: 9 - 13 October 2016
Accepted and presented Full Papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings that will be published in electronic format with reference number ISBN 978-92-95064-27-0. Extended Abstracts will be published without an ISBN. Both publications will be made available to ENC 2016 delegates.
EPJ-N publication of the conference
A selection of the papers will be submitted to a peer review and published in the European Journal of Physics – Nuclear. The papers will be hosted for an unlimited time and each paper will receive a DOI for unique identification. The copyright is retained by the author(s).
EPJ-N is an on-line academic journal with peer review from a strong reputation editorial committee. It’s a new branch of the European Physical Journal dedicated to nuclear science and technology. More at www.epj-n.org
Authors of accepted and peer reviewed papers will furthermore have the opportunity to submit their paper for publication in a special issue on ENC 2016 in the ASME Journal of Nuclear Engineering and Radiation Science.
