MICRA, which stands for Microphysics In Computational Relativistic Astrophysics, is a workshop focused on improving, discussing, and addressing the microphysics needs of relativistic simulations of astrophysical systems, such as core-collapse supernovae, compact object mergers, and gamma-ray bursts, by bringing together nuclear and neutrino theorists and experimentalists, astrophysicists and computational modelers.
The scientific programme of the BRIDGCE UK Network meeting is designed to address significant questions in galactic chemical evolution and nucleosynthesis. The meeting provides a unique platform for scientists from diverse backgrounds to exchange ideas, share expertise, explore new avenues of research, and is open to all scientists working in these areas.
Please find below some important information regarding the meeting:

The 1st IReNA-Ukakuren Joint Workshop: Advancing Professional Development in Nuclear Astrophysics and Beyond (Opens in a new window)
The 1st IReNA-Ukakuren Joint Workshop “Advancing Professional Development in Nuclear Astrophysics and Beyond” will take place on August 28th - September 1, 2023, at National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ).
This is the first workshop promoting exchange of human resources between Ukakuren and IReNA, with a core emphasis on professional development of young scientists.
The workshop will cover a wide range of research topics in nuclear astrophysics;
Taking the Temperature (T3): Workshop on Statistical Nuclear Physics in Astrophysics and Applications (Opens in a new window)
We are happy to announce that "The Taking the Temperature (T3): Workshop on Statistical Nuclear Physics for Astrophysics and Applications" which was canceled due to the Covid pandemic is rescheduled now to be held from August 14-17, 2023 on the campus of Ohio University, in Athens, Ohio, USA.
The workshop’s goal is to bring together researchers in both experiment and theory and from basic and applied fields, who utilize R-matrix techniques in their research. The workshop aims to address the latest developments in R-matrix theory, its application in interpreting experimental data, and its use in data evaluation.
In the context of our annual NuGrid collaboration meeting, we are hosting a half-day event with nuclear astrophysics talks, experimental and theoretical, open to the wider community. Our goal is to showcase recent results from the NuGrid collaboration and establish further connections and collaborations with interested groups.

The workshop on Atomic and Nuclear Quantum Effects Near Threshold will provide the opportunity to discuss quantum effects that affect the cross section of nuclear reactions in low energy accelerator studies and hot plasma environments.
The workshop will take place at the St. Leonard's Hall of the University of Edinburgh from May 31 - June 2, 2023.
Nuclear Astrophysics with Chemical Abundances from Non-LTE Radiative Transfer Workshop (Opens in a new window)
Stellar spectra encode a large amount of physical information, such as a star's mass, temperature, radius, age, distance, velocity field, and detailed elemental composition. Stellar spectroscopy is used not just to study the properties of stars, but also to learn about the history of our Milky Way galaxy, the origin of elements and cosmic nucleosynthesis, the nature of dark matter, and the properties of extrasolar planets. The most common stellar atmosphere models assume Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium (LTE).
The 2023 CeNAM Frontiers in Nuclear Astrophysics Meeting will take place at the FRIB Laboratory, on the campus of Michigan State University on May 21-26, 2023. Registration and abstract submission will open late January.
We are happy to announce the continuation of the successful series of workshops related to the “intermediate” or i-process nucleosynthesis.
The workshop will take place at the Poseidonia Beach Hotel in Limassol, Cyprus during the period May 16-19, 2023. A mini school will be organized right before the main workshop ( May 15-16, 2023) for junior scientists who would benefit from an introduction and hands-on activities on i-process nucleosynthesis.
The Frontiers Summer School in Nuclear Astrophysics aims to develop the cross-field knowledge of senior undergraduate and graduate students, and young researchers in the interdisciplinary field of nuclear astrophysics, via the exploration of various astrophysical and nuclear physics topics, ranging from stellar evolution and nucleosynthesis to novel experimental approaches and theoretical advances.
This particular meeting is a twin SDSS-V/IReNA meeting whose goal is to bring researchers from two collaborations together. IReNA stands for International Research Network for Nuclear Astrophysics (https://www.irenaweb.org) and is a US-driven network that connects international nuclear astrophysics networks.
The 18th Russbach School on Nuclear Astrophysics will take place in the village of Rußbach am Paß Gschütt, southeast of Salzburg, Austria. The school dates will be from March 12 (arrival and registration) to March 18 (departure) 2023.
Remnants of Neutron-star Mergers: Connecting Hydrodynamics Models to Nuclear, Neutrino, and Kilonova Physics (Opens in a new window)
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.
The school is connected to the International Conference on Nuclear Physics in Astrophysics X and aims at introducing important concepts related to nuclear astrophysics, including experimental and theoretical nuclear physics, astrophysics and astronomical observations.
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.
This summer school is intended to teach the application of stellar modelling using Modules for Experiments in Stellar Astrophysics (MESA) to those in the nuclear-astrophysics community and other interested researchers. Stellar modelling applications are becoming increasingly robust, and the availability of models for various stellar environments of interest to the nuclear-astrophysics community is constantly increasing.
We are excited to announce that the 2022 JINA-CEE Frontiers in Nuclear Astrophysics Meeting will take place on May 25-27, 2022 in South Bend, Indiana. Frontiers 2022 will also bring the IReNA community together in person for the first time.
