We are organizing a Summer School on "Nuclear Physics in Astrophysics" in connection to the International Conference on Nuclear Physics in Astrophysics XI. It will be held at Burghotel Stolpen, Germany, from September 8 (arrival) to 15 (departure or transit to the conference), 2024.

Topics will cover the different aspects of nuclear astrophysics: observational astronomy and gravitational waves, astrophysical modelling and simulations, and nuclear physics experiments and theory. Nuclear physics is the necessary link between astronomical observations, stellar models and galactic chemical evolution. The impressive progress in astrophysics during the last decades explaining and predicting astronomical scenarios was only possible because of the fruitful interplay between all disciplines. New insights in one field triggered new developments in the other fields. New experimental techniques are typically the response to new predictions and observations. Recent success stories involve exotic objects like merging neutron stars, more abundant red giants or even rather ordinary stars as the Sun.
