The goal of this 3-day workshop is to launch the data interpretation phase of the RPA with selected experts in observational, theoretical and experimental r-process work.

The workshop aims to identify, in collaboration with r-process theorists and experimentalists, concrete projects for data interpretation to pursue over the next few years. E.g., Identifying the type of data and numbers of the r-process stars that the observers should provide; Prioritization for portrait spectra (S/N
100) observations (such as for actinide boost stars); Correlating yields from different sites of the r-process to the abundances of r-process elements in r-process enhanced stars; Discussing how the data of r-process stars can constrain environment and/or r-process sites via chemical evolution.
