Topical Meeting of IReNA - FA1 Nuclear reaction measurements in Underground Laboratories (Opens in a new window)

Rome, Italy

Workshops & Conferences

The Focus Area 1 (FA1) of the International Research Network for Nuclear Astrophysics (IReNA) is concerned with the determination of nuclear reaction rates of critical astrophysical importance in the laboratory using a broad range of experimental approaches, including heavy ion storage rings, deep underground laboratories, intense photon beams, neutron beams, and recoil separators at stable and rare isotope accelerator facilities.

Title: Radioactive Nuclides in Outer Space

Abstract: Nuclear astrophysics is generally the study of the energy generation in stars and the origins of the chemical elements. In this highly multidisciplinary field, the job of experimental nuclear physicists is to constrain the nuclear reaction rates which are linked with astronomical observables. Observation of the lightest chemical element with no stable isotopes, technetium, in stellar spectra, was the first evidence that nucleosynthesis is an on-going process in our Galaxy.

APS Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (Opens in a new window)

Mt Pleasant, MI, USA

Workshops & Conferences

The mission of CUWiP is to encourage undergraduate women to persist or start a career in physics by proving them with the opportunity to learn about career paths in physics, experience a professional conference, and discuss challenges and concerns. This conference was initiated in 2006 and research data indicate that CUWiP is effective in meeting its goals. It is being supported by in part from the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy.

Origin of the Isotopes Workshop (Opens in a new window)

Online

Workshops & Conferences

Our main goal is to connect researchers interested in the origin of isotopes working on presolar grain measurements, stellar chemical abundances, nucleosynthesis, and galactic chemical evolution to understand the origin of the isotopes. This will be a short two-half-day online workshop consisting of invited presentations. We will then organize a series of open online discussion sessions over the rest of the year on focused topics.

16th International Symposium on Nuclei in the Cosmos (Opens in a new window)

Chengdu, China

School
Workshops & Conferences

Nuclei in the Cosmos is the most important international meeting in the field of nuclear astrophysics. It brings together nuclear experimentalists, nuclear theorists, astronomers, theoretical astrophysicists, cosmo-chemists, and others interested in the scientific questions at the interface of nuclear physics and astrophysics. These questions concern, for example, the origin of the elements in the cosmos and the nuclear reactions that occur in the big bang, in stars, and in stellar explosions.
