MICRA 2017 will be an interdisciplinary workshop aimed at fostering exchange between nuclear (astro-)physicists and computational modelers of relativistic astrophysical phenomena, such as the mergers of neutron star and core-collapse supernovae. A major goal of the workshop series is to foster efforts to include increasingly realistic microphysics in simulations so that we can confidently interpret multi-messenger observations of high density environments. Additionally, this year’s workshop will emphasize the development of strategies for rigorous code-to-code comparison and verification with the goal of improving the reliability of simulations from the entire community.

This meeting is hosted by the Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics -- Center for the Evolution of the Elements, a NSF Physics Frontier Center.
