The “Strangeness in Nuclei and in Neutron Stars” workshop has the aim to set up an arena where young and experimented theoreticians and experimentalists, working in strangeness nuclear physics and astrophysics (neutron star studies), will discuss the most recent achievements and future perspectives of collaboration. The recent results in experimental strangeness physics, such as the kaonic atoms studies, hypernuclei and kaonic nuclear clusters research and kaon/hypernuclei-nucleon scattering, will be critically analyzed in the view of their possible relevance in astrophysics, more specifically in the equation of state of neutron stars, especially after the discovery of 2 solar masses stars. Is there any role strangeness plays in the Universe? This workshops plans to discuss the guiding lines towards finding answers to this fascinating question.
