Thematic focus

HGS-HIRe lecture weeks are interdisciplinary events that cover experimental, theoretical and technical aspects of a particular research field together. This lecture week on nuclear physics aims for an overview of nucleosynthesis processes from the experimental and theoretical point of view. Young researchers who are working and/or interested in nuclear physics, astrophysics or related research fields are very welcome to attend this lecture week.

For registration please send a brief email to info[at]hgs-hire.de.

The agenda indicates sessions called 'Preparing Talks' and 'Talks', but don't worry! The idea behind is to give a very short presentation (max. 15 minutes including discussion) on your own research project as a brief overview/introduction for the other participating students. This individual talk with only few slides or as whiteboard presentation, depending on your personal preferences, should be prepared at the venue during the 'Preparing Talks' session. Hence there is no need to prepare the talk in advance.
