    The NUPPAC conference is a biennial event organized by the Egyptian Nuclear Physics Association (ENPA), Cairo, and dedicated to the progress in experimental and theoretical nuclear and particle physics in order to create broader perspectives for future work.
    The conference is a forum of scientists and persons from universities and research institutes and other governmental and non governmental organizations interested in various aspects of nuclear and particle physics.
    The scientific activities of the conference include plenary sessions for invited talks and keynote presentations by leading / recognized scientists to highlight recent progress in the field, oral/ poster presentations of contributed papers as well as working group meetings are included.
   The working language of NUPPAC is English.


    Review, keynote, and contributed papers are welcome in the following areas:
  1- Nuclear Scattering and Reactions.
  2- Nuclear Models and Spectroscopy.
  3- Neutron and Reactor Physics.
  4- High Energy and Particle Physics.
  5- Plasma and Fusion Physics.
  6- Nuclear Analytical Techniques and Methods.
  7- Mossbauer Spectroscopy.
  8- Computer Codes (modeling, simulation, analysis).
  9- Detectors and Instrumentation.
10- Applied Nuclear Physics.

Table number and title are centered above the table with the word "Table"  and the number followed by "." typed in Bold, the title in cap/lc. The same holds for figure and drawing captions, centered below the illustration.

    Should be centered with a line space above and below. Place each equation on a separate line, number them sequentially in Arabic numerals in "( )" placed flush with  the right-hand margin.

Symbols and Acronyms
    Use internationally accepted symbols and unit abbreviations. Use the International System of Units (SI).

    If used, classify the heading as 1st level, and position at the text end before the reference section.

Social Programme

    NUPPAC social programme includes welcome reception, sight seeing tours and accompanying persons programme. Pre and post conference tours to historic places and modern resorts of Egypt: Greater Cairo (Pyramides and Sphinx, Saqqara, Cairo Citadel), Upper Egypt (Luxor, Aswan), Mediterranean Sea coast (Alexandria, the North Coast), Red Sea coast (Ein Sokhna, Hurgada), and Sinai peninsula (st. Catherine monastery, Suez Bay coast, Aqaba Bay coast) are available at moderate prices.

Exhibition and Advertising

    The NUPPAC traditional exhibition is organized at the conference site for local and international companies. Those who are specialized in applications of nuclear and particle physics in science, industry, agriculture, medicine, environment, etc. are invited to present their equipment, accessories, literature, software, and services. A programme of manufacturer's Seminars (MS) supports the exhibition, where leading manufacturers and vendors, their agents and representatives are given the chance to highlight the latest innovations.
    Interested companies and organizations are invited to apply for an exhibition booth, or for an advertising space in the conference material distributed to all participants, and to contact for MS programme.
