Math, Science, Technology, and Leadership (MSTL) at MSU (Opens in a new window)

Michigan State University

Outreach

Run by MSU's Gifted and Talented Education, this residential/commuter camp offers intensive courses to high-achieving 7th and 8th grade students (one week) and 9th and 10th grade students (two weeks). Programs for both age groups offer a JINA-CEE Nuclear Astrophysics course, taught by JINA-CEE faculty and staff from NSCL and University of Notre Dame. JINA-CEE funds scholarships for interested students who demonstrate financial need.

Workshop on Binary Neutron Star Mergers (Opens in a new window)

Thessaloniki, Greece

Workshops & Conferences

The summer of 2015 will mark the onset of the first science run of 2nd-generation interferometric gravitational wave detectors and over the next years several such detectors will form a world-wide network. The most promising sources of gravitational waves for these instruments are mergers of compact binaries. In particular, the coalescences of binary neutron star systems are considered to be the most probable events. Through gravitational wave observations, the equation of state of high-density matter is expected to be significantly constrained.
