Abstract

Multimessenger observation of compact stars (CSs) mergers have the potential to revolutionize nuclear astrophysics. Data from the first detection, now called GW170817, has already provided strong hints that heavy elements are produced in CS mergers and first constrains the properties of dense matter. It is expected that the Advanced LIGO & Virgo detector network will discover several new events in the first months of the new observing run, which should start in the early 2019 after a series of upgrades to the detectors that should boost their sensitivities by a factor ~3. A vibrant collaborative efforts involving nuclear physicists, computational astrophysicists, and GW and EM observers will be key for the interpretation of past and future observations. This workshop will bring together prominent members of these communities with the aim of maximizing the scientific impact of CS merger observations in nuclear astrophysics.
