17th Russbach School on Nuclear Astrophysics (Opens in a new window)

Salzburg, Austria

School

We announce that the 17th Russbach School on Nuclear Astrophysics will again take place at the village of Rußbach am Paß Gschütt, southeast of Salzburg, Austria. The school dates will be from March 15 (arrival and registration) to March 21 (departure) 2020. This school belongs to the European Network of Nuclear Astrophysics Schools (ENNAS). We shall limit the number of participants to about 60 to ensure a convivial atmosphere, and the possibility to share dinners between all participants.

Of Equal Place: Isotopes in Motion (Opens in a new window)

Wharton Center, East Lansing, MI

Outreach

Of Equal Place: Isotopes in Motion will present an exhilarating performance that combines dance, video, and physics while featuring professional dancers and guest performances by local youth. The show highlights the wonders of science and illuminates the research at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) and was inspired by Dance Exchange’s critically acclaimed work The Matter of Origins. Following the performance, audience members are invited to participate in a series of activities which explore dance, physics, and FRIB.

Frontiers in Nuclear Astrophysics 2020 (Opens in a new window)

Embassy Suites, South Bend, IN

Workshops & Conferences

This will be the tenth 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.

Organizing Committee:

Sebastian Aguilar, University of Notre Dame

Stellar Modelling for Nuclear Astrophysics (Opens in a new window)

Louisiana State University

Workshops & Conferences

This workshop intends to teach the application of stellar modelling using Modules for Experiments in Stellar Astrophysics (MESA) to those in the nuclear-astrophysics community. This is especially geared toward those in the nuclear community who measure, calculate, and theorize reaction rates, in order to apply them to existing stellar models and measure the effects on various features, such as abundances and other astronomical observables.

Astrophysics with Radioactive Isotopes (AwRI2020) (Opens in a new window)

Budapest, Hungary

Workshops & Conferences

Radioactive nuclei play a significant role in many current astrophysical quests. From the origin of the elements through the driving of the emissions from supernovae (56Ni) and kilonovae (r-process radioactivity), they are crucial for direct studies of galactic enrichment (7Be, 26Al, 44Ti, 60Fe, 99Tc, 244Pu, ...) and for new insights on stellar explosions (56/57Ni, 44Ti).

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.
