Chemical Elements as Tracers of the Evolution of the Cosmos


Training School - Direct nuclear reaction methods. (19-21 February, 2020. Orsay, Paris, France)
19 Feb, 2020 09:00 AM to 21 Feb, 2020 05:00 PM IPN-Orsay, Paris, France,

A four-day training school on direct nuclear reaction methods will be organized in the winter of 2020 at IPN-Orsay (France). The speakers will first give lectures on the principles of direct nuclear reaction methods. Then, they will show the students how to perform DWBA and coupled channel calculations using various codes, such as FRESCO, using specific practical examples.

CEMP Stars as Probes of First-Star Nucleosynthesis, the IMF, and Galactic Assembly (Working Group Meeting). (9-13 September, Geneve, Switzerland)
09 Sep, 2019 to 13 Sep, 2019 Geneva University, 30 quai Ernest Ansermet in Auditorium A100 Sciences II,

The beginning of the stellar era in the Universe is a singularly fascinating phase in the history of the Cosmos. The baryonic material filling the Universe at that time, having a composition inherited from Big Bang nucleosynthesis, has its physical characteristics modified by the very first stars. Some pockets of gas, enriched by the first stars, will in turn form new stars, whose initial composition is inherited from the first nucleosynthetic events. These low-mass stars can live sufficiently long to be observed today in halo of the Galaxy, providing the opportunity to obtain information about the very high redshift Universe by the study of nearby stars.

ChETEC Working Group 3 Workshop 2019. (From February 27 to March 1, 2019. Vilnius, Lithuania)
27 Feb, 2019 09:40 AM to 01 Mar, 2019 01:00 PM National Center for Physical Sciences and Technology, Vilnius, Lithuania,

The main goal of the workshop is the preparation of two observing proposals aimed to investigate: (a) the origin and evolution of the r-process elements in the EMP stars; (b) the origin of multiple stellar populations (MPs) in the Galactic globular clusters (GGCs); and (c) to exchange ideas regarding the possible future observing proposals related to the study of EMP stars, as well as MPs in the GGCs.

ChETEC Working Group 3 Workshop 2018. (14-16 March, 2018. Vilnius, Lithuania)
14 Mar, 2018 09:30 AM to 16 Mar, 2018 05:00 PM Vilnius, Lithuania,

The aim of the meeting is to tackle the following questions: (a) the preparation of the observing proposal to investigate evolution of Eu and Ba in the EMP stars; (b) discuss and take the necessary actions for the preparation of the Nuclear Astrophysics Database (NAD); and (c) discuss and launch several science projects presented at the Keele meeting in October 2017.

ChETEC Code of Conduct for meeting

Every event related to ChETEC needs to make use of the following Code of conduct. It is the same a the JINA Code of Conduct, for which we gratefully acknowledge JINA.

Main Action Workshop
09 Oct, 2017 02:00 PM to 11 Oct, 2017 05:00 PM Keele,

MC meeting + WG workshops

Knowledge Hubs workshop + period 2 MC meeting
27 Jun, 2018 from 12:30 PM to 07:00 PM National Institute for Nuclear Physics - Gran Sasso National Laboratory,

During the workshop, we will review the "knowledge hubs" that we have assembled and discuss how we can improve them further. After the workshop, we will have our period(year) 2 MC meeting.

Zagreb Nucleosynthesis software pipeline training school
31 Aug, 2020 to 02 Sep, 2020 Virtual event (initially planned in Zagreb),

The ChETEC COST Action (CA16117), the IReNA NSF network of networks, and the NuGrid collaboration are organising a 3-day training school event on the topic of nuclear reaction rates, stellar nucleosynthesis, observations and implications for galactic chemical evolution.

Period 4 main event
03 Sep, 2020 to 04 Sep, 2020 Virtual event (initially planned in Split),

The ChETEC COST Action started in 2017 and is now in its fourth year/period. In this meeting, we will cover all the aspects of our Action and review all the achievements of the Action during the first three periods as well as plan period 4 and the future beyond the end of the Action.
