i-process Workshop (Opens in a new window)

TRIUMF, Vancouver, Canada

Workshops & Conferences

Objectives

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.

ICONS workshop 2019 - Investigating Crusts of Neutron Stars (Opens in a new window)

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Workshops & Conferences

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.

Radionuclide Astronomy in the 2020s and Beyond (RA2020) Workshop (Opens in a new window)

Los Alamos National Lab

Workshops & Conferences

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.

NS3 Nuclear Science Summer School (Opens in a new window)

Michigan State University

Workshops & Conferences

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.

INT-JINA Topical Workshop (Opens in a new window)

Institute for Nuclear Theory, Seattle, WA

Workshops & Conferences

Observation of gravitational waves (GWs), gamma-rays, x-rays, optical, infrared and radio waves from a neutron star (NS) merger event, now called GW170817, has the potential to revolutionize nuclear astrophysics. Data from this event has already provided strong hints that heavy elements are produced in NS mergers, and that these elements directly influence the observed optical and infra-red light curves. Properties of dense matter which was expected to play a key role also appear to be essential in interpreting the GW data.

Titans of the Early Universe (Opens in a new window)

Monash Prato Centre, Prato, Italy

Workshops & Conferences

This workshop will assemble leading experts from stellar evolution, star formation, accretion physics, and cosmology, in order to shed new light on the origin, evolution, and collapse of supermassive stars, as well as their life after death as the progenitors of the first massive quasars.

MICRA 2017 - Microphysics in Computational Relativistic Astrophysics (Opens in a new window)

East Lansing, Michigan

Workshops & Conferences

MICRA 2017 will be an interdisciplinary workshop aimed at fostering exchange between nuclear (astro-)physicists and computational modelers of relativistic astrophysical phenomena, such as the mergers of neutron star and core-collapse supernovae. A major goal of the workshop series is to foster efforts to include increasingly realistic microphysics in simulations so that we can confidently interpret multi-messenger observations of high density environments.
