 + 
 +The 2012 Nuclear Astrophysics Town meeting was held on October 9-10, 2012 in Detroit, Michigan. 150 scientists participated and provided a wealth of material for a white paper laying out a vision for Nuclear Astrophysics. The working group reports and presentations have been published on this wiki.  
 + 
 +A first white paper draft had been published in Spring 2014. At that time, the NSAC Nuclear Science Long Range Plan (LRP) process began, and we were tasked to create a nuclear astrophysics white paper for that purpose. We decided to use our white paper draft as a starting point of this process, and publish a final white paper that will be submitted to NSAC as input to the long range plan, and at the same time serves the community goals we envisioned when we started the process at the 2012 Town Meeting.  
 + 
 +Our white paper draft has therefore been discussed in a set of working groups at the APS/DNP Town Meeting for Nuclear Astrophysics,​ that was held jointly with the APS/DNP Town meeting for Low Energy Nuclear Physics on August 21-23 at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas as part of the NSAC Nuclear Science Long Range Plan process. Subsequently working groups have made edits, modifications,​ and additions to the text that were merged with other community input.  
 + 
 +The White Paper will be submitted to NSAC by January 31. We also envision a printed version with a professional layout to appear at a later date.
