The Erice International School on Nuclear Physics was founded by Prof. H. Schopper in 1974. Subsequently it was organized by Sir Denys Wilkinson until 1983. From the beginning, the topics of the school have been chosen in young and fast expanding fields at the interphase between nuclear, particle, and astrophysics. The idea is to bring together internationally highly recognized experts in the field with young scientists and Ph. D. students. In the morning the experts give review lectures on the current ample status of a special topic, while the afternoon is mainly devoted to seminars of the participants leaving time for discussions and special topical schools.
