Introduction

The 16th International Symposium on Nuclei in the Cosmos (NIC-XVI), will be held from 21st – 25th September 2021, in Chengdu, China. NIC-XVI is organized by the China Institute of Atomic Energy (CIAE), Institute of Modern Physics (IMP), Sichuan University (SCU), and Beijing Normal University (BNU). The symposium is supported by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP), National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), Asia-Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP), Asian Nuclear Physics Association (ANPhA), China Center of Advanced Science and Technology (CCAST), China Institute of Nuclear Astrophysics (CINA), China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) and CIAE.

Overview and background

Nuclei in the Cosmos is the most important international meeting in the field of nuclear astrophysics. It brings together nuclear experimentalists, nuclear theorists, astronomers, theoretical astrophysicists, cosmo-chemists, and others interested in the scientific questions at the interface of nuclear physics and astrophysics. These questions concern, for example, the origin of the elements in the cosmos and the nuclear reactions that occur in the big bang, in stars, and in stellar explosions. Past meetings have been held in Gran Sasso - Italy (2018), Niigata- Japan (2016), DebrecenHungary (2014), Cairns- Australia (2012), Heidelberg - Germany (2010), Mackinac Island - USA (2008), Geneva - Switzerland (2006), Vancouver – Canada (2004), Fuji-Yoshida - Japan(2002), Aarhus - Denmark (2000), Volos – Greece (1998), Notre Dame - USA (1996), Gran Sasso - Italy (1994), Karlsruhe - Germany (1992), Baden bei Wien - Austria (1990).
