Satellite workshops

Neutron Matter in Astrophysics: From Neutron Stars to the r-Process (Darmstadt, 15-18 July)
This satellite workshop focuses on topics with direct relations to the main activities of the ExtreMe Matter Institute (EMMI). Presently the origin of r-process nuclei is not understood. The abundance evolution is linked to the understanding of exotic nuclei, the site (determining the environmental conditions, like density, temperature, entropy, neutrino luminosities and the resulting global neutron/proton ratio) is related to the properties of neutron stars. Thus, the two major uncertainties for understanding the r-process are addressed by research activities at GSI/FAIR and are of interest for EMMI. The workshop intends to bring together experimentalists and theoreticians working on topics in nuclear structure, compressed baryonic matter, neutrino physics and astrophysics as well as observational astronomy in a truly interdisciplinary way.

The Physics and Astrophysics of Neutron Stars and Black Holes (Bremen, 16-17 July)
This conference taking place at the Jacobs University Bremen is meant as a satellite meeting directly preceding the 38th COSPAR scientific assembly which takes place in Bremen from July 18 to 25, 2010. The aim is to bring together leading experts on topics related to neutron stars and black holes for a focused meeting aimed at the exchange of ideas and recent results.
Key topics:
  • Accretion onto compact objects
  • Compact objects as laboratories for fundamental physics
  • Black hole growth throughout the age of the Universe
  • The interaction of black holes with their environments

Workshop on Data Requirements in Nuclear Astrophysics (Darmstadt, 25-27 July 2010)
The workshop provides six topical sessions and two general round table discussions about data availability, data needs, and data evaluation. Each topic session consists of an introductive talk and a discussion including short contributions. The number of participants is limited to about 30 persons. There will be no registration fee. The registration deadline is 11 June 2010. For more information, click here.
