The NSF has approved the S4 funding for the development of an underground accelerator facility at DUSEL. The main goal of the facility is the measurement of low energy reaction cross sections of relevance for stellar nucleosynthesis processes. The Dakota Ion Accelerators for Nuclear Astrophysics DIANA will consist of two accelerators to cover a broader energy range than presently possible at the LUNA facility at the Gran Sasso underground laboratory in Italy.   Visit the DIANA website

A workshop "Supernova Physics and DUSEL" took place at UCLA, CA on Wednesday September 16 and Thursday September 17, 2009. Details

The SNOLAB 2009 Workshop was held on August 27 & 28 at SNOLAB. More

A workshop on Nuclear Astrophysics Opportunities at the Underground Laboratory in Canfranc took place from February 19 - 20, 2009 at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (EUETIB-UPC), Barcelona, Spain.

DUSEL S-1 GEOSCIENCE-BIOLOGY-ENGINEERING WORKSHOP was held on Nov. 12-13, 2004 in Blacksburg, VA. The goal of this workshop was to reach consensus among the earth sciences, biological, and engineering communities on a list of high priority experiments for DUSEL, both generic and site specific; on a modular structure for these experiments (which can serve a multiuser / multidisciplinary purpose); and on the infrastructure requirements for the modules and experiments. The results of the workshop will be published in a document prepared by the Working Group leaders and Solicitation 1 PIs for distribution to the DUSEL community. These steps are viewed as prerequisites for the general DUSEL meeting to be held in Boulder, Colorado, on January 4-7, 2005. Click here for more information
