Workshop on Nuclear Astrophysics at the Dresden Felsenkeller

A new underground ion accelerator facility for nuclear astrophysics is currently under construction in the Felsenkeller area, Dresden. The accelerator tank will be moved into the underground tunnel in April 2017, and the facility will open in September 2017. In order to update and discuss the science case for the new facility, and also to update on the state of the art in the field of nuclear astrophysics, a short workshop will be held in Dresden, from 26-28 June 2017.

The highlight of the workshop will be the ceremonial opening of the Felsenkeller tunnels in the presence of 2015 Physics Nobel Laureate Arthur B. McDonald, the Saxonian Minister of Science, the Mayor of Dresden, and the Rector of TU Dresden.

Topics

  • The sun, solar neutrinos, and solar abundances
  • Stellar structure and abundances, hydrostatic stellar nucleosynthesis
  • Novae, supernovae, X-ray and γ-ray bursts, mergers, explosive nucleosynthesis
  • Experimental techniques and facilities

Scientific program

  • The program will consist of invited presentations, and in addition a limited number of contributed presentations and posters.
  • Scientists wishing to make a contribution are asked to to send a tentative title to the organizers; they will be notified by the registration deadline.
