Astrophysics with Radioactive Isotopes (AwRI 2022) (Opens in a new window)

Budapest, Hungary

Workshops & Conferences

Radioactive nuclei play a significant role in many current astrophysical pursuits, from the origin of the elements to the driving of emissions from supernovae ($^5$$^6$Ni) and kilonovae (r-process radioactivity). Radioactive nuclei are crucial for direct studies of galactic enrichment ($^7$Be, $^2$$^6$Al, $^4$$^4$Ti, $^6$$^0$Fe, $^9$$^9$Tc, $^2$$^4$$^4$Pu) and stellar explosions ($^5$$^6$Ni, $^4$$^4$Ti). Stars and their explosions, galaxies and their evolving interstellar medium, and the origin of the solar system are among the targeted astrophysical objects.

Stellar Modelling for Nuclear Astrophysics Summer School! (SMNASS) (Opens in a new window)

Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA

School

This summer school is intended to teach the application of stellar modelling using Modules for Experiments in Stellar Astrophysics (MESA) to those in the nuclear-astrophysics community and other interested researchers. Stellar modelling applications are becoming increasingly robust, and the availability of models for various stellar environments of interest to the nuclear-astrophysics community is constantly increasing.

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.
