Asian Nuclear Physics
revised on Oct. 2, 2010
- The objective of ANPhA is
to strengthen ”Collaboration” among Asian nuclear research scientists
through the promotion of nuclear physics and its transdisciplinary use
- The objective of ANPhA is
also to promote “Education” in Asian nuclear science through mutual
exchange and coordination.
- It also aims at “Coordination”
among Asian nuclear scientists by actively utilizing existing research
- Furthermore, at a later
stage, it will help to discuss future planning of nuclear science facilities
and instrumentation in Asia.
- The Members of ANPhA must
be representing organizations in nuclear sciences research in Asian
or Oceanic countries or regions. In each country/region the representing organization
could be different, while the body must be “certain” representing
organization which each country/region can authorize.
- The number of the board
members from one country/region must be less than five.
- The representative organizations in some
regions may also become members of ANPhA, based on mutual agreement related to the
region definition and the names used for the organizations, which should be consistent
with those used by IUPAP.
- The ANPhA Board is installed
with an appropriate numbers of Board members. Initial Board members
are Japan (4), China (4), Korea (3), and Vietnam (1). This number can be added
later by the approval of the Board meeting.
- The Board may select chair,
vice chair(s) and secretary. The term of the chair, vice chair(s)
and secretary is two years.
- The Board meetings shall
be held on a regular basis, at least annually, at which all business
items shall be discussed.
- The ANPhA Office shall
be located at the RIKEN Nishina Center. The Office is not necessarily
permanent and can be changed later.
Usage of Other Countries/Regions:
- In order to promote collaboration
among Asian countries/regions, the ANPhA will create documents for easier access
to research facilities. Examples of these are 1) available experimental
facilities including major accelerators, 2) major computing resources,
- Each country/region
must define its own coordinator among the Board members.
- The ANPhA must have its
own homepage. Each country/region must define an appropriate network
and other useful information.
- The ANPhA supports organizing
seminars and workshops, etc. for information exchange among the membership
- The ANPhA can organize
“Schools” for students. The ANPhA can be instrumental for
University-Institution cooperation and exchange programs.
Eventually, at a later
stage of ANPhA, it is useful for ANPhA to create a document for future
planning of accelerators and instrumentation in Asian countries/regions.
The following countries/regions joined ANPhA
with the number of Board member indicated in the parentheses:
Australia (1), India (2), and Taiwan (1) on January 17, 2010,
and Mongolia (1) on October 2, 2010.
