The INAC International School and Pre-Symposium of the 17th International Symposium on the Origin of Matter and Evolution of Galaxies (OMEG2024) will be held at Beihang University (BUAA) in Beijing, China, from September 2 to 6, 2024, one week before the OMEG2024 symposium in Chengdu, China (17th OMEG conference).

This meeting is organized by the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) from various Chinese institutions and International research centers worldwide. The program consists of a one-day pre-symposium followed by a four-day school, featuring frontier-level research talks and fostering discussions on advanced topics in nuclear and astrophysics.

The following topics are discussed in the Pre-Symposium:

1. Big-Bang cosmology, primordial nucleosynthesis and dark matter
2. Element distribution in the Universe and Galactic evolution
3. Explosion dynamics and nucleosynthesis in supernovae and neutron star mergers
4. Stellar evolution and nucleosynthesis
5. Neutrinos and weak interactions in physics and astrophysics
6. EOS of dense nuclear matter and neutron stars and quark stars
7. Exotic degrees of freedom in nuclei, hadron structure and QCD
8. Nuclear reactions for astrophysics
9. Nuclear structure for astrophysics
10. Cosmic radioactivities, X- & gamma-ray observations and meteorites
11. New Facilities

The OMEG2024 school will offer practical lectures on the following research topics:

Stellar Evolution and stellar modelling


Supernova physics and supernova simulation


Galactic chemical evolution


Nuclear physics theories and nuclear reactions


Observations, chemical abundances in stars

Tutorials on the practical application of the relevant tools will be provided for each topic. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in group activities and develop their projects based on these tutorials. On the final day, a student session will be held where participants can present their outcomes and engage in discussions with other attendees.
