A Workshop in Honor of Richard E. AzumaDick Azuma has contributed greatly to the experimental study of proton and alpha capture reactions for more than five decades, over the last few years he contributed enormously to the interpretation and extrapolation of data using R-matrix theory and introducing these techniques to a new generation of young nuclear astrophysicists.Dick Azuma is one of the great pioneers in nuclear physics.He has contributed to many sub-disciplines of the field, from in-beam gamma spectroscopy, to weak interaction and beta and beta-delayed decay experiments, to radioactive beam experiments to medium energy proton scattering studies, working at the University of Toronto, Chalk River, CERN/ISOLDE, and TRIUMF.We want to honor his contributions and dedication to Nuclear Astrophysics, his studies of radiative capture reactions for the CNO cycles and his studies of alpha capture reactions such as 12C(a,g)16O, the key reaction of stellar helium burning are milestones for our understanding of stellar burning processes.On the occasion of his 78th birthday we would like to honor him and his achievements by organizing this special workshop on "R-matrix in Stellar Hydrogen and Helium Burning".
