The conference is jointly organised by the main Radioactive Ion Beam (RIB) facilities in Europe, presently engaged in the major upgrades HIE-ISOLDE@CERN, NUSTAR@FAIR, SPES@LNL and SPIRAL2@GANIL with the long-term goal of EURISOL. The collaborations built around these facilities are exploring new experimental and theoretical ideas that will advance the understanding of nuclear structure and reactions as well as nuclear astrophysics through studies of exotic nuclei. Following the spirit of the conferences held in Giens (2008), Lamoura (2010), Abano Terme (2012) and Hohenroda (2015) the EURORIB 2018 will provide the opportunity for the scientific community and different collaborations to come together and present new ideas, and explore the synergies between the research programs based around the different accelerator projects.

The main topics to be discussed at the conference are :

 1)   Future RIB facilities
 2)   At and beyond the dripline and new modes of radioactivity
 3)   Nuclear structure far from stability and hypernuclei
 4)   Transuranium nuclei
 5)   Dynamics and Thermodynamics of exotic nuclear systems
 6)   Direct Reactions with radioactive beams
 7)   Nuclear astrophysics
 8)   Fundamental interactions
 9)   Applications to other fields
10)   Instrumentation, electronics and data acquisition systems
11)   Production and manipulation of RIB
