We are pleased to announce that the international workshop on Nuclear Cluster Physics (WNCP2017) will be held at Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan from October 25th to 27th, 2017. This is a series of the workshop following the first workshop held at Yokohama last year, aiming to discuss recent discovery and development related to the nuclear clustering in nuclei.


  1. Cluster structure in stable and unstable nuclei
  2. Clustering aspects of nuclear reactions and resonances
  3. Alpha condensates, di-neutron correlation, and halo structure in nuclei
  4. Clusters in nuclear astrophysics
  5. Ab initio approaches to nuclear clustering
  6. Cluster structure in strangeness nuclear physics
