DOE Nuclear Theory Topical Collaborations 
PDF of Guidelines
DOE Office of Nuclear Physics Opportunities:

This is the third round of Nuclear Theory Topical Collaborations, which focuses on the theory for describing the properties and interactions of nuclei and nuclear matter, the structure of nucleons, and nuclear reactions. The topics include theoretical interpretations and predictions for existing experimental measurements as well as informing future experiments at nuclear physics facilities such as the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF), the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), the Argonne Tandem Linac Accelerator System (ATLAS), the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), and the planned Electron-Ion Collider (EIC). With RHIC experiments and the newly upgraded CEBAF, the nuclear physics community is exploring deeper into the structure of nucleons and the nuclear matter. The new capabilities of the upgraded ATLAS and recently completed FRIB opened a new era of exploring properties and structures of nuclei, nuclear reactions, and new applications for society. Nuclear Theory Topical Collaborations will enable long-term sustained effort in advancing theoretical framework for answering these challenges, at existing facilities and the EIC that is under development.
