Particles and Nuclei International Conference 2020

Dear PANIC friends,

We are committed to hold PANIC2020. However, due to the current situation with the COVID-19 outbreak, the periods for early registration and abstract submission are extended by 1 month, and will be continuously reviewed.

PANIC2020 will be held in Lisbon from 31 August to 4 September 2020.

This conference is the 22nd in the series of triennial conferences which bring together the Particle and Nuclear Physics communities.

PANIC2020 consists of plenary talks, a number of parallel sessions and a poster session. The scientific programme addresses a broad range of topics at the interface between particle, nuclear and astrophysics. Special emphasis will be devoted to recent discoveries and results. 

The conference is hosted by LIP, Laboratory for Instrumentation and Experimental Particle Physics, and FCUL, Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon.
