The next TRIUMF Summer Institute (TSI 2017) will be held from July 24th to August 4th, 2017 at TRIUMF in Vancouver, Canada. The theme for TSI 2017 is “Modern Tools for Nuclear Astrophysics” and will focus on the three research pillars of nuclear astrophysics: experiments, observations, and astrophysical modelling.
The school will host 40 graduate students and young researchers from all over the globe, and is designed to be very interactive with ample time for questions and discussions. During the two weeks of the TSI, the afternoons will be dedicated to hands-on problem solving to help digest the content of the lectures. TSI 2017 is designed to be accessible to students working in nuclear physics and nuclear astrophysics, providing them with a solid foundation in modern methods and tools in all three areas of research, as well as our current understanding of the astrophysical events under study.
