The Latin-American Symposia on Nuclear Physics and Applications (LASNPA) is a symposium which takes place every two years since 1995, in different countries of Latin America: Venezuela (1995, 1997), Colombia (1999, 2015), Mexico (2001), Brazil (2003), Argentina (2005), Peru (2007), Chile (2009), Ecuador (2011), Uruguay (2013), Cuba (2017) and now Costa Rica (2020). Since its first edition the Symposia is the flagship for Latin-American groups and is dedicated to disseminating the advances of nuclear science and related fields, from the fundamental to the applied research, with emphasis on the topics developed by the Latin-American research groups. The event provides a high-quality exchange and networking forum for researchers, professionals, and students, gathering an international audience from all over the world. The event promote a space where the Latin-American community can present advances, new concepts and innovative approaches, learn about new trends and solutions, and receive feedback from specialists in diverse fields. This series of symposia is attended by the most important nuclear physicists of Latin America and has the participation of several scientists from the USA, Europe and Asia. The 13th edition will take place in San José, the capital of Costa Rica. The city is located in the central region of the country, a strategic place nearby the Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO), where major government institutions, public universities, and industry converge in a metropolitan area with over three million people. From the capital the rest of the country is easily accessible and is surrounded by tropical and lush nature in environments such as beaches, volcanoes, rivers and mountains. This symposium will officially start in the morning of Monday January 20 and end in the afternoon of Friday January 24, 2020.
