5th International Workshop on Nuclear Data Covariances
- CW2020 -

September 7 to 11, 2020, Tokyo Institute of Technology

Due to uncontrolable spread of COVID-19, we decided to postpone CW2020 for a year. Thank you for your kind considerations.

History of Covariance Workshop
This workshop is the fifth one in a series, started 2008 in Port Jefferson, USA by BNL, and continued in 2011 in Vienna, Austria by the Vienna University of Technology, hosted in 2014 in Santa Fe, USA by LANL and in 2017 in Aix en Provence, France by CEA. The CW2020 workshop is planned to take place at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech.), Tokyo, Japan during September 7-11, 2020, just after the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic games following Tokyo Olympic games.

Purpose of CW2020
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together key scientists in the field of nuclear data measurement and evaluation, statistical analysis, nuclear reaction theory, reactor physics, and other relevant applications to review recent developments in nuclear data evaluation methodology where uncertainty quantification is involved, to assess and discuss open questions, and to exchange our ideas and expertise relevant to the covariance data. This opportunity will be particularly important for identifying areas of future cooperation amongst the participants. The workshop scope is open to contributions on a wide variety of nuclear data observables (cross sections, fission yields, energy and angle spectra, etc.), from the resonance range up to high energy range as well as for light to heavy elements.

Tips for participants

The climate of mid September in Japan is still hot and humid. We are in a period of "cool biz (energy-saving casual wear campaign)", so we recommend the participants to wear no necktie nor suits. Please feel free to visit Tokyo Tech. in your comfortable style.
