From 24 to 29 September 2019 nuclear physicists will join annual Nuclear Physics Workshop in Kazimierz Dolny. The topic of this coference devoted to theory of nuclear structure is "Key problems in nuclear physics". The organizer is Department of Theoretical Physics, Institute of Physics of UMCS in Lublin.

This year over 70 participants attend in the meeting. We have planned over 50 lectures and moreover several poster presentations.

On 20 th September 2019 Agnieszka Szulerecka defended her PhD thesis on "Group theory analysis of the selected discrete groups of intrinsic symmetries in a quadrupol-octupol collective nuclear model". Prof. Andrzej Góźdź was the supervisor of the thesis. Prof. Michał Kowal from NCBJ, Warsaw and prof. Katarzyna Mazurek from IFJ, Cracow prepared the reviews.

Congratulations for the new doctor in physics!

Prof. Tomasz Paterek from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore with collaborators was awarded Ig Nobla prize from biology for discovering that dead magnetized cockroaches behave differently than living magnetized cockroaches.

Ig Nobel prize is awarded for serious research that has some humorous or extraordinary meaning. It is very well recognized in the academic world. One of Ig Nobel Prize winners was Andre Gleim who get Nobel Prize later.

Honoured paper: Scientific Reports

Prof. Paterek graduated from Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in theoretical physics. His master thesis was prepared under supervision of Prof. Andrzej Góźdź.
