CAWONAPS (The Canadian Workshop on the Nuclear and Astro- Physics of Stars) was held at TRIUMF on December 9th/10th 2010. This workshop brought together Canada's top researchers in the field, including observational astronomers, experimental nuclear physicists and theoretical astrophysicists, in order to take measure of what the Canadian community has to offer in the field and to foster greater future collaboration within this highly multi-disciplinary field. Links to the presentations and workshop program can be found at http://astro.triumf.ca/cawonaps-2010.

The workshop was attended by 41 scientists from 13 institutions in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom and Spain. 


r-Canada 2014

r-Canada, a workshop on the astrophysical r-process, was held at TRIUMF on June 10th/11th 2014. Links to the presentations and workshop program can be found here

23 Canadian researchers in theoretical and experimental astrophysics attended this meeting, which aimed to summarize the state of Canadian research into the r-process and to strengthen collaborative ties between Canadian groups engaged in this research.


3rd North American Workshop on beta-delayed Neutron Emission

This workshop was held on 25th-26th July 2014. In 2013 the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) approved a 4-year Coordinated Research Project (CRP) on the Evaluation of beta-delayed neutron emitters. This workshop was intended to present and coordinate experimental, theoretical and evaluation efforts on beta-delayed neutron emission, with focus on the US and Canada.
It was held following previous meetings at McMaster University (2012) and at Oakridge National Laboratory (2013), and took place after the Nuclear Structure 2014 Conference organized bu TRIUMF (http://ns2014.triumf.ca/). The workshop page can be found here.
