In this workshop we plan to introduce the ideas of a new interdisciplinary field ‘Nuclear astrochemistry’. This brings together disparate fields of nuclear physics with the rapidly emerging field of astrochemistry to explore the processes of star formation (and death) and planet formation and how they create the conditions that may allow life to evolve and be sustained. In the workshop, the first of its kind, we will bring together leading experts in these fields together with early career researchers who will develop this new field through observations (using JWST), theoretical models and simulations and laboratory studies to address the fundamental questions of how the elements and molecules of life are created in the universe and the consequences for the search for life beyond Earth and our solar system.
The Red training school will take place in Le Teich in France from March 17th – 23rd, 2024. Application deadline is 15th January 2024! Check out the website: https://red-astrobiology.fr/
This summer school, run by the Institut Origines at Aix-Marseille University and the Origins theme from the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris, will provide a unique platform to access both basic and cutting edge knowledge related to the study of the origin of terrestrial planets and life based on the analysis of extraterrestrial samples in Earth laboratories. We will have a particular focus on recent and future sample return missions. This multdisciplinary summer school will address domains including cosmochemistry, astrobiology, astrophysics, planetology, and more. We will learn through lectures and practicals from our large set of world experts as well as from more informal exchanges through a series of round tables with dedicated topics. Furter information is available at:
A focused summer school on the geosciences of exoplanets at Lake Ammer (Ammersee).
The distinctive features of the summer school include:
The intended audience of this summer school ranges from Master students to junior postdocs. Both experts and curious newcomers to the topic are welcome to attend. Senior scientists who are intending to switch research directions and/or attending as active listeners are also welcome.
Application deadine: 31 March 2024
