1st Announcement

It is a great pleasure to invite you at the 29th Symposium of the Hellenic Nuclear Physics Society (HNPS), which had to be postponed owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, and will now be held at the National Center for Scientific Research “Demokritos” (NCSRD) on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 September, 2021.

The Symposium will be jointly organized by the Institute of Nuclear & Radiological Sciences and Technology, Energy & Safety (INRASTES) and the Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics (INPP) of NCSRD.

The Symposium will be held at the Auditorium of the Demokritos Congress Center located in the NCSRD campus in Aghia Paraskevi. In case of inability to hold the symposium on-site due to restrictive measures of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Symposium will be held in a hybrid mode, which will consist of on-site and virtual (On-line) presentations and participation.

The Symposium organized annually by the HNPS since 1990, offers an excellent opportunity for scientists in Greece and abroad to meet and discuss their state-of-the-art research activities on Theoretical and Experimental Nuclear Physics, Nuclear Astrophysics, as well as Applications of the Nuclear Science including Nuclear Analytical Techniques, Nuclear Technology and Radiation Protection, Environmental Radioactivity and Bio-Medical Applications. Moreover, it offers the grounds to junior scientists to present their recent scientific work and to expand their scientific interactions with senior scientists.

Sessions will include Oral (15 min + 5 min for discussion) as well as Poster presentations.  Registration and abstract submission should be done on line at the symposium website:

As in every year, the Symposium Proceedings will be published by the Hellenic Nuclear Physics Society in a special Volume entitled “HNPS 2021: Advances in Nuclear Physics” and will be uploaded to the e-Publishing platform and national indexing accumulation infrastructures provided by the National Documentation Centre (EKT). Please note that there is a limit of 6 pages for the papers corresponding to oral presentations and 4 pages for posters.

Registration Opens:Friday, June 18th, 2021
Abstract submission deadline:Friday, July 30th, 2021
Abstract acceptance notification:Friday, August 13th, 2021
Full Manuscript submission deadline:Friday, October 29th, 2021

You are kindly asked to inform your colleagues and students about our symposium. Submissions by young researchers are strongly encouraged.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the 29th HNPS Symposium at NCSRD.
