POSTPONED - International Workshop on Nuclear Statistical Physics in Astrophysics and Nuclear Applications (NuSPANA) (Opens in a new window)

Santa Fe, NM

Workshops & Conferences

We are organizing an international workshop on Nuclear Statistical Physics in Astrophysics and Nuclear Applications (NuSPANA). Nuclear reaction data is one of the key elements in nuclear applications ranging from simulating nucleosynthesis in stellar modeling to performance validation in nuclear energy and nuclear security. Experimental effort in the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) is focused on neutron-induced reactions, in close collaboration with reaction theory development and continuous progress on cross-section evaluations at LANL.

17th Russbach School on Nuclear Astrophysics (Opens in a new window)

Salzburg, Austria

School
Workshops & Conferences

We announce that the 17th Russbach School on Nuclear Astrophysics will again take place at the village of Rußbach am Paß Gschütt, southeast of Salzburg, Austria. The school dates will be from March 15 (arrival and registration) to March 21 (departure) 2020. This school belongs to the European Network of Nuclear Astrophysics Schools (ENNAS). We shall limit the number of participants to about 60 to ensure a convivial atmosphere, and the possibility to share dinners between all participants.

IReNA Workshop - Progress on the reaction rates and stellar modelling affecting the 26Al abundance in the Galaxy (Opens in a new window)

York, UK

Workshops & Conferences

The radioisotope 26Al is a key observable for providing information on the role of massive stars in the Galaxy as well as on the conditions in the early Solar System. It is produced in a number of astrophysical sites, from AGB stars and Wolf-Rayet winds through to novae and supernovae. To properly interpret the observational data, it is therefore crucial to understand to the production of 26Al in these different environments. There are a number of reactions which affect the final abundance of 26Al, including (but not limited to) 25Mg(p,g)26Al, 26Al(p,g)27Si, and 26Al(n,p/a).

Lithium in the Universe: to Be or not to Be (Opens in a new window)

Observatory of Rome

Workshops & Conferences

The meeting will bring together experts from various fields to discuss the role played by lithium in several astrophysical contexts and to highlight the extraordinary character of this chemical species, as a tracer of the structure and evolution of stars, galaxies and the Universe.

 

The main topics of the meeting will be:

 

 * Big Bang nucleosynthesis

 * Nuclear reaction rates involving lithium and beryllium

 * Physical processes in stellar interiors as traced by Li, Be, and B

 * Hot bottom burning in massive AGB stars

7th edition of the p-process workshop (Opens in a new window)

Serralunga d'Alba (Cuneo), Italy

Workshops & Conferences

PDF

Topics

Beyond iron, a small fraction of the total abundances in the Solar System is made of proton-rich isotopes, the p-nuclei. The clear understanding of their production is a fundamental challenge for nuclear astrophysics but still remains to be clarified.

Nuclear Physics in Astrophysics IX (Opens in a new window)

Frankfurt, Germany

Workshops & Conferences

Nuclear physics is the necessary link between astronomical observations, stellar models and galactic chemical evolution. The impressive progress in astrophysics during the last decades explaining and predicting astronomical scenarios was only possible because of the fruitful interplay between all disciplines. New insights in one field triggered new developments in the other fields. New experimental techniques are typically the response to new predictions and observations.

CEMP Stars as Probes of First-Star Nucleosynthesis, the IMF, and Galactic Assembly (Opens in a new window)

Geneva, Switzerland

Workshops & Conferences

The beginning of the stellar era in the Universe is a singularly fascinating phase in the history of the Cosmos. The baryonic material filling the Universe at that time, having a composition inherited from Big Bang nucleosynthesis, has its physical characteristics modified by the very first stars. Indeed, the first stars will change the degree of ionized material in their vicinity, and, through their winds and/or supernova explosion, will inject energy, momentum, and newly-synthesized elements.

MICRA 2019 (Opens in a new window)

TPI in Jena, Germany

Workshops & Conferences

MICRA, which stands for Microphysics In Computational Relativistic Astrophysics, is a biennial workshop focused on improving, discussing, and addressing the microphysics needs of relativistic simulations of astrophysical systems, core-collapse supernovae, compact object mergers, and gamma-ray bursts by bringing together nuclear and neutrino theorists and astrophysicists and computational modelers. This year marks the 5th installment and the 10th anniversary of MICRA, and the first since the revolutionary gravitational wave event GW170817.

Workshop on Nuclear Astrophysics Opportunities at ATLAS 2019 (Opens in a new window)

Argonne National Laboratory

Workshops & Conferences

The aim of the workshop is to bring the nuclear astrophysics community together to discuss opportunities available at the ATLAS facility, to foster new collaborations, and solicit new ideas for future advancement of the facility and experimental program. The ATLAS facility has undergone an expansion in its capabilities to produce and study isotopes of astrophysical interest, both through facility enhancements (CARIBU, RAISOR, the soon-to-be N=126 factory, etc.) and experimental devices/techniques (MUSIC, HELIOS, ion trapping, GRETINA, GAMMASPHERE, etc.).
