> Nuclear physics in stellar explosions

Invitation

As a continuation of the effort of the ATOMKI astrophysics group to bring together the experts from different fields with relevance to nuclear astrophysics a thematic workshop is organized in 2018.

About 50% of the chemical elements heavier than iron are synthesized in stellar explosions (in the r-process, rp-process and γ-process). The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers working in the field of explosive nucleosynthesis.
The workshop covers a wide range of topics:

    - Evidences of explosive nucleosynthesis (observations and abundances)
    - Nuclear Theory in Astrophysics (Mass models, β-decay rates, optical potentials)
    - Modeling of the nucleosynthesis processes (r-, rp-, and γ- process network calculations)
    - Recent r-, rp-, and γ-process related experiments
    - New facilities, detectors and experimental approaches

The meeting will be a three-day event last at Institute for Nuclear Research (MTA Atomki) of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences divided into eight sessions, each including an invited presentation and contributed talks.
The registration fee is 150 Eur. It will cover coffee breaks, meals and conference materials. No proceeding of the workshop will be published. The presentations of the speeches will, however be posted to the website of the workshop upon permission of the speakers. The number of participant will be limited to 60 persons, we would like to give the possibility for everybody to present his/her work.
The deadline of the registration and abstract submission is 30th July 2018. The program will be finalized by 15th August, 2018.

Accomodations
Booking in these hotels can be done either thought their webpages or by using e.g. booking.com. A limited number of rooms in the guesthouse of Atomki are also available, in case you are willing to stay in one of these rooms, please contact the organizers.

Travel information

The town of Debrecen has a small airport Debrecen Airport, DEB with only a few international connections. The hungarian owned low-cost flight company Wizzair use it as its home-base airport and also the Lufthansa has a daily-base connection to Munich Airport.
Participants are more likely to arrive at the Budapest Airport, BUD. There are different ways of reaching the workshop site from there:

Shuttle bus
Probably the most convenient way is to use an airport shuttle service which provides a door-to-door transfer from the airport to your hotel. The service must be pre-booked. Booking can be done at the Agora TransFair's Web page. The price of the transfer for two ways is about 20.000 HUF which must be paid in cash (Hungarian Forints) to the driver. If you prefer, the workshop organizers can help you booking the transfer. Note, that the shuttle minibus collects several passengers, so some delay in departure can be expected.

Train
Take the public bus No. 200E from outside the ground level of the airport towards Budapest Kőbánya-Kispest station. Bus ticket can be purchased from the machines at the bus stop or from the driver. Get off at the 4th stop called Ferihegy vasútállomás (Ferihegy Railway Station). The railway station is just on the opposite side of the street, having direct train connection to Debrecen. We recommend using InterCity trains. A timetable can be found here. Tickets can be purchased at the station from the ticket machine.

Car
Car rental is possible at the Budapest Airport on the Hertz desk from 8 am till midnight.
