The 12th International Conference on Direct Reactions with Exotic Beams DREB2024

Wiesbaden, Germany, June 24th – 28th, 2024

The 12th international conference on Direct Reactions with Exotic Beams (DREB2024) will be held in Wiesbaden, Germany, from June 24th to 28th, 2024. This DREB conference is part of the biennial series, which began in 1999 at MSU, East Lansing, at the initiative of physicists working in the field from
MSU, IPN-Orsay, and FSU. The following meetings were held at Orsay (2001), Guildford (2003), East Lansing (2005), Wako (2007), Tallahassee (2009), Pisa (2012), Darmstadt (2014), Halifax (2016), Matsue (2018), and Santiago de Compostela (2022).

The scientific program will be devoted to the latest experimental and theoretical research and developments in nuclear reactions with exotic nuclei. The topics will include the following subjects relevant to direct reactions:

  • Spectroscopy of exotic nuclei
  • Shell structure and evolution
  • Nuclear force and short-range correlations
  • Bulk properties and collective excitations
  • Nuclear astrophysics
  • Ab initio methods for structure and reactions
  • Advances in direct reaction theory
  • New instrumentation for direct reaction studies

In keeping the tradition of this conference series, the meeting will be of a relatively informal character:
no proceedings will be published. The program of the meeting will consist of contributed presentations
and posters to be selected based on the submitted abstracts, in addition to keynote opening talks. The
conference program will focus on new results, in particular presentations of yet unpublished results. We
strongly encourage students and other junior researchers to participate.

The conference is hosted jointly by GSI/FAIR and the TU Darmstadt.
