Nuclei in the Cosmos is the foremost bi-annual conference of nuclear physicists, astrophysicists, cosmochemists, and others to survey the recent achievements in Nuclear Astrophysics.

As an interdisciplinary meeting it promotes mutual understanding and collaboration over fields fundamental to solve a range of open questions, from the origin of the elements to stellar evolution.

Inherent part of the conference is a school devoted to students and young scientists where prominent scientists introduce the field of nuclear astrophysics to the participants.

Nuclei in the Cosmos is the most important international meeting in the field of nuclear astrophysics. It brings together nuclear experimentalists, nuclear theorists, astronomers, theoretical astrophysicists, cosmochemists, and others interested in the scientific questions at the interface of nuclear physics and astrophysics. These questions concern, for example, the origin of the elements in the cosmos and the nuclear reactions that occur in the big bang, in stars, and in stellar explosions. Past meetings have been held in Heidelberg - Germany (2010), Mackinac Island - USA (2008), Geneva - Switzerland (2006), Vancouver - Canada (2004), Fuji-Yoshida - Japan (2002), Aarhus - Denmark (2000), Volos - Greece (1998), Notre Dame - USA (1996), Gran Sasso - Italy (1994), Karlsruhe - Germany (1992), Baden bei Wien - Austria (1990).

All papers were refereed by at least one independent, international expert referee. Some were not accepted for publication. There was also a number of papers presented at the conference for which a manuscript was not provided.

Editorial Board: John Lattanzio, Amanda Karakas, Maria Lugaro, George Dracoulis.

The international symposium Nuclei in the Cosmos is the foremost bi-annual get together of nuclear physicists, theoretical and observational astrophysicists, cosmochemists, and others interested in the field commonly recognized as Nuclear Astrophysics.

Topics include, among others:

  • Cosmology and big bang nucleosynthesis
  • Element production, stellar evolution and stellar explosions
  • Evidences of nucleosynthesis in stars and in presolar grains
  • Experiments in nuclear astrophysics
  • Nuclei far from stability
  • Nuclear theory in astrophysics

Previous editions of Nuclei in the Cosmos have been: Vancouver - Canada (2004), Fuji-Yoshida - Japan (2002), Aarhus - Denmark (2000), Volos - Greece (1998), Notre Dame - USA (1996), Gran Sasso - Italy (1994), Karlsruhe - Germany (1992), Baden bei Wien - Austria (1990).
