Following the success of the previous editions of the "SPES one-day Workshop", we are pleased to announce a new event to be held at the INFN and Department of Physics of the Pisa University (Largo B. Pontecorvo 3, room 131) on February 1-2, 2018.

This event will be focused on the use of radioactive ion beams for fundamental symmetry tests at SPES.

Addressed topics are:
  1. Implementation of effective, low energy approximations to QCD.
  2. Interactions models, ab initio approaches and energy density functional calculations.
  3. Universal aspects and effective description of nuclear clustering.
  4. Radioactive decays, decay correlations and related processes.
  5. Neutrino-less double beta decay, CP/T violation and limits of existence of Electric Dipole Moment, interaction neutrino-nucleus and related processes.
  6. Exotic coupling, symmetries and energy scale separation.
  7. Instrumentation.
