Nuclear and astrophysics aspects for the rapid neutron capture process in the era of multimessenger observations (Opens in a new window)
This workshop will bring together theorists and experimentalists to address the many aspects of nuclear physics and astrophysics that must be considered and properly understood in order to model the r-process
The registration will be open from April 15th. For US participants, there is an opportunity to obtain travel support to ECT* workshops through the EUSTIPEN program.
An informal meeting to discuss weak interactions in hot and dense matter encountered in supernovae and neutron star mergers will be held at the Institute for Nuclear Theory June 3-6, 2019.
This is the ninth in a series of former JINA and now JINA-CEE meetings that brings together JINA-CEE participants, collaborators, and other interested researchers in nuclear physics, astronomy, and astrophysics to discuss progress and future directions related to the understanding of the origin of the elements and neutron stars.
This specialized workshop is timely as several experimental opportunities are now opening up. This workshop brings together experimentalists from several labs and the groups performing i-process nucleosynthesis calculations. We will discuss dedicated experimental and theoretical effort for improving our understanding of this process which is required for a better understanding of the origin of the heavy elements.
This is a JINA-CEE supported workshop that aims to bring together different areas of research that all involve studies of heated neutron star crusts. This includes observations of different manifestations of neutron stars, theoretical calculations and simulations, and nuclear experiments. One of the primary goals of this dedicated workshop is to have a facilitated discussion about the puzzling source of shallow crustal heating, and what observations/experiments/calculations are needed to move forward.
(i) r-process production in GR simulations of the double
neutron stars and CCSNe; the impact of neutrinos.
(ii) The assembly of double neutron stars and r-process
enrichment of the Galaxy and its satellites.
(iii) GW170827; kilonova emission from theoretical perspective.
(iv) GW170817; Modeling and observations of the associated kilonova.
(v) r-process production from the experimental nuclear physics perspective.
(vi) Observations of the r-process enhanced metal poor stars.
The purpose of the Radionuclide Astronomy in the 2020's and Beyond (RA2020) workshop is focused on determining the potential science goals in radionuclide astronomy for next-generation X-ray and gamma-ray missions. This will include identifying and prioritizing open astrophysical questions on astrophysical sources of radionuclides that can be addressed by next-generation missions.
There is a new impetus in efforts to reconcile thermonuclear burst observations and models, and also incorporate in more detail the nuclear physics inputs. At the same time, new experimental data is becoming available, that is challenging our existing understanding of burst physics.
NS3 is a summer school for undergraduate students that aims to introduce the participants to the field of nuclear science. NS3 will be hosted by Michigan State University (MSU) and will offer lectures and hands-on activities covering selected nuclear science topics. The school activities will take place at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) and will include lectures by local and visiting researchers, nuclear physics labs, a tour of the facility, discussions with graduate students and faculty, and more.
The 2018 NASA Laboratory Astrophysics Workshop was held on April 8th through April 11th at the UGA Center for Continuing Education and Hotel. Available talks from the meeting can be found online.
