The 513. Wilhelm und Else Heraeus-Seminar on Astrophysics with ion storage rings brings together scientists with experience or collaborations in the field of nuclear astrophysics and in particular with ion storage rings. The latest developments will be shared, common interests determined and future projects with high visibility developed.

The WE-Heraeus-Seminar will take place at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef near Bonn/Germany during 14.-18. January 2013. It is generously funded by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation.
The program consists of invited overview as well as contributed talks covering the broad area of research in nuclear astrophysics. The number of talks is limited, but we encourage everybody, in particular young scientists, to contribute a poster and increase the diversity of the seminar. In order to underline the importance of those contributions, prizes for the best posters will be awarded.

The number of participants is limited to about 60. All local costs (i.e., meals and accommodation) of the participants will be covered. If the number of registrants exceeds the limit, people offering a contribution will be accepted first.
