MICRA 2017

Microphysics in Computational Relativistic Astrophysics 2017

July 17th - 21st, 2017

East Lansing, MI

MICRA 2017 will be an interdisciplinary workshop aimed at fostering exchange between nuclear (astro-)physicists and computational modelers of relativistic astrophysical phenomena, such as the mergers of neutron star and core-collapse supernovae. A major goal of the workshop series is to foster efforts to include increasingly realistic microphysics in simulations so that we can confidently interpret multi-messenger observations of high density environments. Additionally, this year’s workshop will emphasize the development of strategies for rigorous code-to-code comparison and verification with the goal of improving the reliability of simulations from the entire community.

This meeting is hosted by the Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics -- Center for the Evolution of the Elements, a NSF Physics Frontier Center.



Code of Conduct

JINA-CEE workshops and conferences are committed to providing a harassment-free environment for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, nationality, or religion.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments or jokes related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Behave professionally. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Attendees violating these rules may be asked to leave the event at the sole discretion of the conference organizers.
