1-5 February 2016, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

This Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics (JINA) workshop aims to bring together Australian and international experts from stellar evolution, supernova theory, stellar spectroscopy, hydrodynamics, and nuclear physics with expected topics including:

  • single and binary super-AGB star evolution
  • convective URCA phase
  • C and O/Ne flame propagation
  • electron capture supernova models
  • s/p/r/i process nucleosynthesis
  • spectroscopy and GCE role of ECSNe at low metallicity
  • ECSNe from Pop III stars
  • neutron star equations of state
  • population synthesis & ECSNe rate predictions
  • evidence for ECSNe from a) light curves, b) SN remnants (i.e Crab nebula) c) neutron star masses
  • massive white dwarf formation and super-AGB stars mass loss rates

This workshop is followed by the Australian National Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (ANITA) Summer School on "Dancing with the stars: The life and death of stars" February 8-10 and the ANITA annual general workshop/conference February 11-12 (ANITA2016)
