Most of the elements that we see everyday like iron or gold, or fundamental for life like carbon and oxygen, are produced in stars. The fundamental question of how elements form in our galaxy and in the universe need the contribution from many disciplines, within the cross-disciplinary context of nuclear astrophysics.

NuGrid and the EA Milne Centre for Astrophysics organize a 3-day training school event on the topic of nuclear reaction rates, stellar nucleosynthesis, observations and implications for galactic chemical evolution.

In order to prepare students and post-docs for explorations in these science areas the school will include among others an introduction to:

  • Running network codes and analysing data, within a flexible framework for nuclear astrophysics simulation experiments;

  • Tools and examples for nuclear uncertainty studies;

  • Galactic chemical evolution with NuPyCEE.

The goal of this training school is to document present state of knowledge and discuss key open questions in nuclear astrophysics, and to allow young scientists to practise and actively engage with these different interdisciplinary topics. Trainees will learn how to use software tools that will enhance their research and their exploitation

The school is organized in the week following the NuGrid meeting, and in the same week of the UK BRIDGCE collaboration meeting "Stars, Supernovae and Nucleosynthesis V" (20th-21st September 2018),

E.A. Milne Centre for Astrophysics School of Mathematics and Physical Sciences University of Hull Hull, HU6 7RX United Kingdom

The school is being held at the University of Hull campus on Cottingham Road.

Hull (full name: Kingston-upon-Hull) is an historical city of Yorkshire, in the North of England. Funded in the 12th century, Hull city and its port developed across medieval ages because of its strategic position, where the River Hull joins the Humber. Today Hull is a young and modern city, known as the UK City of Culture 2017, for the university, its Aquarium, the museums and many other things. We are happy to welcome you in Hull in September 2018!

Hull campus is about 4 miles from Hull city centre (Bus 103 or 105), and within walking distance from the lively Newland and Princess Avenues where you will find many good pubs and restaurants (bus 103 also goes to town via the "Aves").
