The Nuclear Structure 2014 conference will be hosted by TRIUMF, Canada’s National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics, on July 20-­‐25, 2014, on the campus of the University of British Columbia. This will be the 15th in this series of biennial conferences organized by North American national laboratories, returning to Canada for the first time since 1992.

The scientific program will be devoted to the latest research and development in experimental and theoretical nuclear structure physics, with emphasis on the properties of nuclei at the extremes of isospin, excitation energy, mass, and angular momentum.

The program will consist mostly of contributed talks selected from submitted abstracts, built upon a framework of invited speakers, listed below.
