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

Baton Rouge, LA

Workshops & Conferences

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.

Astrophysics with Radioactive Isotopes (AwRI 2022) (Opens in a new window)

Budapest, Hungary

Workshops & Conferences

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.
