The 1st IReNA-Ukakuren Joint Workshop “Advancing Professional Development in Nuclear Astrophysics and Beyond” will take place on August 28th - September 1, 2023, at National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ).

This is the first workshop promoting exchange of human resources between Ukakuren and IReNA, with a core emphasis on professional development of young scientists.

The workshop will cover a wide range of research topics in nuclear astrophysics;

  • Nuclear Equation of State
  • Nuclear structures and reactions for astrophysics
  • Stellar evolution, explosive phenomena, and nucleosynthesis
  • The early Universe: Big Bang nucleosynthesis and metal-poor stars
  • Chemical evolution of star clusters and galaxies
  • New facilities and experimental techniques
  • Neutrino and particle physics
  • Recent hot topics and others

and we expect many discussions between researchers interested in nuclear physics experiments, nuclear theory, astronomical observations, nuclear astrophysics theory, and any related areas.

We have some capacity for financial and lodging support, details to be announced soon.
