ECT* Conference room

The workshop intends to identify the most promising indirect methods in nuclear astrophysics, to discuss their particulars and to assess their reliability. We want a broad discussion to:
-review the existing indirect methods
-assess the problems with their accuracy, in particular those arising from the calculated absolute values
-emphasize the need for modern codes
-assess the sets of parameters to use in calculations.

Physicists working on stellar modeling together with theoreticians and experimentalists working in nuclear physics for astrophysics will meet with the purpose of identifying stellar scenarios needing nuclear reaction data that make sizable difference in stellar evolution and the optimal methods to obtain them. Such discussions are crucial for reliably using indirect methods for nuclear astrophysics and even to validate the very existence of many Rare Isotope Beams facilities which rely on them as one of as their main areas of research.
