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.).

Nuclear and astrophysics aspects for the rapid neutron capture process in the era of multimessenger observations (Opens in a new window)

ECT*, Trento, Italy

Workshops & Conferences

This workshop will bring together theorists and experimentalists to address the many aspects of nuclear physics and astrophysics that must be considered and properly understood in order to model the r-process

The registration will be open from April 15th. For US participants, there is an opportunity to obtain travel support to ECT* workshops through the EUSTIPEN program.

Frontiers in Nuclear Astrophysics 2019 Conference (Opens in a new window)

Michigan State University, East Lansing, Mi

Workshops & Conferences

This is the ninth in a series of former JINA and now JINA-CEE meetings that brings together JINA-CEE participants, collaborators, and other interested researchers in nuclear physics, astronomy, and astrophysics to discuss progress and future directions related to the understanding of the origin of the elements and neutron stars.

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.
