WG5: Centers and diversity

Falk Herwig - University of Victoria, Canada 
Maria Lugaro - Konkoly Observatory, Hungary 

Keywords: Role of centers in nuclear astrophysics, diversity


In the 40-min plenary session two short talks will set the stage for the following discussions  of the two topics, centers and diversity in smaller break-out groups. The goal is to collect ideas and materials for the white paper. Each break-out group assigns a rapporteur who takes notes in the WG5 google doc and may also participate in the Friday session as well. To help initiate and focus discussions in the break-out sessions guiding questions will be provided by the speakers and conveners. Rapporteurs of each break-out session will provide a summary in the WG5 Google doc and discuss outcomes during the Friday follow-up session which is designated to write white paper content organized by themes.
