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.

North American Storage Rings and Neutron Captures Workshop (Opens in a new window)

Online Via Zoom and Gather

Workshops & Conferences

 

Embracing the virtual nature of the workshop, the meeting will be broken into three half-day sessions. No parallel sessions are planned. Zoom will be used for the primary presentation of technical content, while substantial breaks are planned where critical informal discussion can take place in Gather.Town. Gather.Town allows us to invite you for a virtual coffee and exciting discussions.

Planned topics of discussion include:

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.

IReNA FA1 Stellar Burning Virtual Workshop Series (6/10, 6/17, 6/24, 7/1, 7/2) (Opens in a new window)

Online

Workshops & Conferences

This virtual workshop is organized within FA1 and consists of a series of 4 seminars. The purpose is to build and strengthen international collaborations in nuclear astrophysics issues related to stellar burning (broadly defined). The structure will take advantage of the online format, taking place for 2-hour sessions each week for four weeks. The first hour of each session will consist of three 20-minute talks, while the second hour will be an open discussion.

R-matrix Online Talks (Opens in a new window)

Online

Workshops & Conferences

As the 2020 R-matrix workshop on methods and applications has been postponed until 2021, we have put together a condensed online meeting via zoom for interested participants. A broad range of topics will still be covered, including both experimental and theory endeavors related to R-matrix. The online workshop will take place on Monday June 22, from 12:00 to 15:00 EST. There will be three one-hour sessions that will consist of a series of five to six short 5-minute talks, starting at the top of each hour.

Online Workshop - FRIB First Experiments: Proposal Preparation (Opens in a new window)

Online

Workshops & Conferences

FRIB offers unprecedented opportunities in nuclear astrophysics to understand element synthesis and compact stellar objects. Close collaboration between nuclear scientists and astrophysicists will be essential to develop the early experiment proposals that maximize the impact on the field. JINA-CEE has identified a number of astrophysicists that are interested in contributing to proposal development and would be available to help or to collaborate with nuclear theorists and experimentalists.

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.

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).
