This interdisciplinary workshop will bring together researchers in nuclear and neutrino physics, nuclear astrophysics, and in numerical modelling of relativistic astrophysical phenomena such as the mergers of neutron stars and core-collapse supernovae. The overarching goal of the MICRA workshop is to improve the interaction and collaboration between different communities towards astrophysical simulations that combine state-of-the-art microscopic (neutrino-matter interactions, equations of state, thermonuclear reaction rates) and macroscopic physics/methods (e.g. hydrodynamics, radiative transfer and relativity).

MICRA will be directly preceeded by the Einstein Toolkit workshop on computational infrastructure for relativistic astrophysics.
