Please join us on July 8th 2020 from 1:00-3:00 EDT for an online symposium to honor the late pioneer Eleanor Margaret Burbidge. This event will celebrate her life and science through short talks from her colleagues and collaborators as well as researchers who have benefited from her trailblazing and scientific insights.
Megan Donahue - Michigan State University and past president of AAS
George Fuller - University California, San Diego

POSTPONED - Taking the Temperature: Statistical Nuclear Physics for Astrophysics and Applications (T3) (Opens in a new window)
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.
The Seminar will begin at 2pm EST Online Seminar featuring Benoit Cote (Konkoly Observatory)
PAN is a free week-long program for current high school students.
Online PAN: Both Michigan State University and the University of Notre Dame have cancelled in-person K-12 summer programs for 2020.
The Seminar will begin at 2pm EST Online Seminar featuring Sanjana Curtis (NCSU).
The Seminar will begin at 2pm EST Online Seminar featuring Sabrina Schäfer (Darmstadt).
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.
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).
We would like to invite you to participate in a JINA-CEE sponsored workshop on all things R-matrix that will be held from June 21 - 25, 2021 at Ohio University in Athens, OH, USA.
