The 13th Conference on the Intersections of Particle and Nuclear Physics (CIPANP 2018) will be held May 29-June 3, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells, near Palm Springs, CA. An electronic version of the conference poster is attached.

The conference conveners are currently organizing the parallel sessions, which will include both contributed talks and talks solicited by the conveners because of their relevance to CIPANP themes. The sessions will be arranged around the following topics:

Physics at High Energies
Precision Physics at High Intensities
Cosmic Physics and Dark Energy, Inflation, and Strong-Field Gravity, Neutrino Masses and Neutrino Mixing
Tests of Symmetries and the Electroweak Interaction
Dark Matter
Particle and Nuclear Astrophysics
Heavy Flavors and the CKM Matrix
QCD, Hadron Spectroscopy, and Exotics
Parton and Gluon Distributions in Nucleons and Nuclei
Nuclear Forces and Structure, NN Correlations, and Medium Effects, Quark Matter and High Energy Heavy Ion Collisions

Please submit your abstracts soon, so they can be optimally placed in the sessions being organized.

Plenary talks: The plenary talk schedule is available on the web site.

Registration: Registration is open, and the early-bird registration fee will remain in effect until April 20. Please register now, and reserve a room at the conference hotel (which provided an attractive rate for our group).

Abstract submission: Abstract submission is done through the conference's Indico site, as described on the main web page. We ask contributors to submit prior to April 20, or sooner if possible.

Financial support: As the support available to participants is limited, priority will be given to younger researchers who register prior to April 20. The application form is available on the web site.
