The scientific program will include invited talks, selected oral contributions from submitted abstracts, and poster presentations, covering the following topics:

  • Nuclear level density
  • Gamma-ray strength function
  • Phase transitions in mesoscopic systems
  • Applications in astrophysics and reactor physics
  • Other related topics

As in previous Oslo Workshops, the program will allow ample time for discussions. The list of speakers and a detailed program will be posted on the conference website and will be included in the next circular in early April 2021. Previous workshops: 2019, 2017, 2015, 2013, 2011, 2009, 2007

What do we mean by "learning programming", why do many find it challenging to learn, what are really the main challenges, which aspects do people in different settings need to learn and how do they best learn it? Geir Kjetil Sandve will give a brief introduction to a discussion where we look forward to hearing experiences and viewpoints inspired by the myriad settings where people in our environment have been involved in programming.

Tor Ole Odden:

"The field of educational research has a massive literature base, with many journals that have been publishing articles for almost a century (or longer). How do we sort through and make sense of literature at this scale? We have begun using an unsupervised machine learning technique from the field of natural language processing, known as latent Dirichlet allocation, to analyze articles from the fields of physics education research and science education research. This technique allows us to extract latent themes, or topics, from the literature and quantify the rise and fall of those topics over time.

In this talk, I will present the basics of the technique, describe some of its underlying theory and applications, and showcase some of the trends that it reveals in how science education theory and practice has evolved over the last 20-100 years." 

Time and place: Oct. 30, 2020 1:00 PM3:30 PM, Simula, Ole-Johan Dahls hus

December 1 is the deadline for handing in Study agreement and project description. Ahead of this you must find a supervisor and a master topic. This meeting showcased some possibilities.
