The 44èmes Journées des Actinides (44th JdA) will be held in Ein-Gedi, Dead-Sea, ISRAEL, between 22-29 April 2014.
This conference is a traditional informal actinide forum, including physics, chemistry and materials science actinide research. The first meeting of the Journées des Actinides (JdA) took place in the 1970's and soon after an annual periodicity was established. The previous conference, the 43èmes Journées des Actinides (43th JdA) (2013) took place in Sestri Levante, in the region of Liguria in Italy. In 2014 the tradition will be continued in the Ein-Gedi Kibbutz.


The number of participants is limited to 150.



These traditionally informal actinide meetings always encourage lively discussions in the form of the mixture of oral presentations and poster sessions, encompassing numerous different topics.

It regularly brings together physics, chemistry and materials experts from all fields involved, emphasizing exchanges and discussions on current issues in actinides science. There is also a strong emphasis on the encouragement and inspiration of young researchers to ensure a healthy future for the international research in this area.

Topics covered include:

  • Nuclear fuel cycle, environment
  • Inorganic, organometallic chemistry
  • Theory, electronic structure
  • Materials science, nanomaterials
  • Strongly correlated behaviours, superconductivity and quantum criticality
  • Actinide production
  • Fission products
  • Actinide handling and radiation protection
  • Nuclear forensics


The 10th School  on the Physics and Chemistry of the Actinides (SPCA)

The 10th  SPCA will be organized as a tutorial session introductory to the JdA conference. It will be held between 22-24 April in the Ein-Gedi Kibbutz.

The school is an unique opportunity for students (and others) to gain knowledge from expert master-classes in various areas of different actinide science aspects. It is an ideal opportunity to meet, question and learn from experts in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.


Special session  

The special session dedicated to the memory of 3 great scientists: Dr. Moshe Kuznietz, Prof. Oscar Vogt and Prof. Bernard R. Cooper will be held during the conference.


We are very happy to welcome you to Ein-Gedi, for the 44th JdA and 10th SPCA.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee

Dr. Itzhak Halevy

Prof. Roberto Caciuffo
