Remnants of Neutron-star Mergers: Connecting Hydrodynamics Models to Nuclear, Neutrino, and Kilonova Physics (Opens in a new window)

Darmstadt, Germany

Workshops & Conferences

This EMMI+IReNA Workshop will bring together experts from the four areas hydrodynamic simulations, neutrino-flavor physics, r-process nucleosynthesis, and kilonova modeling. The goal is to identify the main shortcomings of current models and to discuss strategies for how to propagate modeling uncertainties into r-process abundances and kilonova predictions, thereby improving models in a way to maximize the scientific output of future multi-messenger observations of neutron star mergers.

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.

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.

Origin of the Isotopes Workshop (Opens in a new window)

Online

Workshops & Conferences

Our main goal is to connect researchers interested in the origin of isotopes working on presolar grain measurements, stellar chemical abundances, nucleosynthesis, and galactic chemical evolution to understand the origin of the isotopes. This will be a short two-half-day online workshop consisting of invited presentations. We will then organize a series of open online discussion sessions over the rest of the year on focused topics.

16th International Symposium on Nuclei in the Cosmos (Opens in a new window)

Chengdu, China

School
Workshops & Conferences

Nuclei in the Cosmos is the most important international meeting in the field of nuclear astrophysics. It brings together nuclear experimentalists, nuclear theorists, astronomers, theoretical astrophysicists, cosmo-chemists, and others interested in the scientific questions at the interface of nuclear physics and astrophysics. These questions concern, for example, the origin of the elements in the cosmos and the nuclear reactions that occur in the big bang, in stars, and in stellar explosions.

Virtual workshop on (a,n) reactions for astrophysics (Opens in a new window)

Virtual workshop

Workshops & Conferences

(α,n) reactions play a pivotal role in a variety of astrophysical sites and mass regions, and they can help us understand the origin of the elements. Their astrophysical rates are the main nuclear physics uncertainty in the weak r-process (also known as the α-process), which occurs in the neutrino driven ejecta of core-collapse supernovae and can explain the production of the lighter heavy elements, that are observed in metal poor stars. The 22Ne(α,n)25Mg and 13C(α,n)16O reactions are the main neutron sources for the s- and the i-processes.

POSTPONED - Taking the Temperature: Statistical Nuclear Physics for Astrophysics and Applications (T3) (Opens in a new window)

Ohio University, Athens, Ohio

Workshops & Conferences

Statistical estimates of nuclear reaction rates are essential ingredients for astrophysical model calculations, e.g. r-process nucleosynthesis in neutron star mergers, and nuclear applications, e.g. next generation nuclear reactor performance. Rate calculations require experimental or theoretical constraints for nuclear properties such as level densities (temperature), gamma-strength functions, particle optical potentials, and level spin distributions.
