JINA-CEE and IReNA organized the “JINA Horizons” on November 30 - December 4, 2020 - a virtual meeting that brought together the international nuclear astrophysics community to discuss open questions and future directions. This is a particularly exciting time for our field: there are many new developments, including new rare isotope facilities, new underground facilities, gravitational wave observations, advanced nuclear theory and computational modeling capabilities, new observational results and a broad range of new observational opportunities, and new capabilities to analyze stardust. We plan to create a short white paper, following in the footsteps of the 1999 and 2012 nuclear astrophysics town meetings. The meeting included a workshop specifically for junior researchers, and students and postdocs are encouraged to participate actively in the entire meeting.
- The writing group has created a first draft for the white paper summarizing meeting discussions and other input received. We are now collecting comments, which can be submitted via a webform by January 23.
