Dear Participants of NP2020 conference
Considering the situation of COVID-19, the Local Committee has decided to hold the NP2020
ONLINE on 7-11 June 2021,
when we keep to use the title NP"2020", as the Tokyo Olympic 2020.
We aim to maintain the scientific program as much as possible.
Keynote and Invited Speakers can keep their slot and will be given an opportunity to update their abstracts.
On the other hand, we foresee a call for new contributions.
The registration page for authors of oral or poster presentations is now re-open for submitting a new abstract.
We hope you will understand our decision, considering the exceptionality of the situation.
We thank you for your continued support and understanding in these difficult times.

The field of photon based nuclear science and applications is evolving rapidly being driven by the major worldwide developments of ultrahigh intensity lasers and brilliant quasi monochromatic gamma ray beam systems.
The 3rd International Conference on Nuclear Photonics (NP2020) will be held during June 1-5, 2020 in Kurashiki, Japan. The conference will be organized by the Institute of Laser Engineering (ILE) and Research Center for Nuclear Physics (RCNP), under Institute for Open and Transdisciplinary Research Initiatives (OTRI), Osaka University, Osaka Japan.
Nuclear Photonics 2020 aims at bringing together leading scientists, researchers and research scholars from around the world involved in the fields of high energy density physics, high power laser photonics, nuclear physics, astrophysics, accelerator and detector science, and their applications for exchanging and sharing the experience and most recent results.
Nuclear Photonics 2020 is organized in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
