Three outstanding pioneers represent the achievements of women in the field of science and technology: The double Nobel Price winner and discoverer of radioactivity Marie Curie (1867-1934), the Austrian-Swedish nuclear physicist Lise Meitner (1878-1968) and the Viennese Hollywood actress Hedy Lamarr (1914-2000) with the invention of frequency hopping.
Dear Nuclear Astrophysics Colleague,
We would like to invite you to participate in the JINA-CEE Frontiers in Nuclear Astrophysics Meeting to be held on February 7-9, 2017 at the Radisson Hotel, 111 N Grand Ave, Lansing, MI 48933.
We would like to invite you to participate in the Joint CNA (Center for Nuclear Astrophysics, Shanghai Jiao Tong University) and JINA-CEE (The Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics - Center for the Evolution of the Elements) Winter School on Nuclear Astrophysics to be held onDecember 12-17, 2016, at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University in Shanghai, China.
A half-day event, this introduced more than 50 high school physics students in LCC’s Early College to the field of nuclear astrophysics. It included hands-on lessons regarding isotopes, nuclear reactions, and neutron capture. Graduate students gave brief explanations of their research and highlighted their own paths that led to JINA-CEE.
JINA-CEE/TRIUMF Satellite Workshop on Recoil Separators for Nuclear Astrophysics (Opens in a new window)
We will be holding a JINA-CEE/TRIUMF Satellite Workshop on Recoil Separators for Nuclear Astrophysics on Tues 11th and Wed 12th October, 2016, at the TRIUMF laboratory in Vancouver, Canada.
The Workshop is funded by JINA-CEE and TRIUMF.
The focus of the school will be the understanding and application of nuclear reaction networks to astrophysical models for systems such as novae, x-ray bursts (rp-process) and neutron star mergers (r-process). The reaction network employed will be the public NucNet code published by Prof. Bradley Meyer, of Clemson University.
A week long program at one of two world leading nuclear physics laboratories: Nuclear Science Laboratory located on the campus of the University of Notre Dame and the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory located on the campus of Michigan State University. Learn nuclear astrophysics through lectures from faculty, and modern physics experiments.
The Torino Workshops series started in Torino in 1995 and 11 workshops have been held so far in different parts of the world. The 12th workshop will be held jointly with the biannual CSFK Astromineralogy Workshop IV, which started in Budapest in 2010.
Middle and high school physical science teachers from the US and Canada participate in a week-long professional development program to learn techniques for teaching nuclear astrophysics in the classroom. Activities are similar to the student week, but also include lesson plans and materials.
