The 2023 National Nuclear Physics Summer School (NNPSS) will be held from 10 July through 21 July, at the University of California, Riverside. The summer school is open to graduate students and postdocs within a few years of their Ph.D. (on either side). Lecturers (listed below) will provide pedagogical reviews and discuss future prospects covering the full range of topics in experimental and theoretical nuclear physics (topics listed below). Nobel Laureate Barry Barish will deliver a special lecture on LIGO with an emphasis on neutron stars and meet with the participants. 

The school will consist of ten days of lectures, special topics seminars and discussions, excursions to Huntington Beach State Park and the Loma Linda Proton Therapy Treatment & Research Center,  and several social activities. The school provides an excellent opportunity for junior researchers to acquire a broad perspective on current and future research in nuclear physics, and to network with other researchers.
Additional information is available through the INT website: The school can accommodate 55 applicants. Applications and reference letters can be submitted until 15 April 2023. For accepted applicants, the school will cover most local expenses. Participants are responsible for travel costs and an activity fee ($250), with a small number of activity fee waivers for students with severe financial needs. Inquiries should be sent to 
The school is being organized by Ken Barish and Miguel Arratia (co-chairs).
