White Paper on the Context of Research in Canada

The CINP and IPP were asked by NSERC to prepare a joint document on "the context of Canadian subatomic physics research" for distribution to the Subatomic Physics Evaluation Section (SAPES) shortly before their 2014 fall policy meeting, with the opportunity for the committee to ask questions on it. This was in response to our request to reinstate the discontinued SAPES fall site visits, given their value to both international and domestic members of the committee in understanding the Canadian research context and environment.

White Paper on High Performance Computing

Compute Canada had a call in June 2014 for White Papers for Sustainable Planning for Advanced Research Computing (SPARC). Due to the many common requirements, it was felt that a much stronger case could be made if a common document on the "Computing requirements for the Canadian subatomic physics community" could be prepared on behalf of both the Institute of Particle Physics and the Canadian Institute of Nuclear Physics.

CUPC Student Travel Awards

The CINP is making available four student travel awards to the Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference (CUPC), being organized this year by Trent University in Peterborough, ON on October 22-25, 2015. Each award will be for up to $500.00 towards student travel expenses.

Faculty or associate level CINP members who are supervising an undergraduate enrolled at a Canadian university on a nuclear physics research topic are asked to apply for the travel award on behalf of their student. The application package should consist of:

WNPPC Graduate Student Travel Awards

The Canadian Institute of Nuclear Physics (CINP) is making available four graduate student travel awards to the Winter Nuclear and Particle Physics Conference (WNPPC), to be held in Mont Tremblant, Quebec on February 15-18, 2018. The conference website is at:

Each award will be for up to $500 towards student travel expenses. Students must be enrolled in graduate studies at a Canadian university and performing research in experimental or theoretical nuclear physics. The application package should consist of:
