Workshop on ChETEC starting community for nuclear astrophysics

Scientific rationale

The nuclear astrophysics community requires a number of small or medium-size infrastructures for its cutting-edge research:

  • Supercomputers for astrophysical modelling
  • Small or medium-size nuclear laboratories
  • Small or medium-size telescopes

The aim of the workshop is to explore practical ways to strengthen the connections between the ChETEC network and those infrastructures.

Time and venue

Important dates

  • Deadline for applying for COST support: 21.10.2019
  • Registration deadline: 28.10.2019
  • Workshop dates: 11.-12.11.2019

Practical information

  • Dresden can be conveniently reached by air (Dresden international airport, many connections to Frankfurt, Munich, and Düsseldorf) or within two hours by train or by bus from Berlin or Prague.
  • Participants should book their own accommodation. 
  • Recommended hotel: Ibis Prager Straße Dresden, LINK.
  • Please make your own hotel booking, by 01.11.2019. If you use the codeword "ChETEC workshop", you will get a rate of 59 € / night including breakfast. 
  • Bus transfer from the venue to the recommended hotel (Monday night) and from the recommended hotel to the venue (Tuesday morning) will be provided.
  • We will try to assist participants with transfer from Dresden airport to the workshop site (on Monday) and back (on Tuesday).
