From February 11 through 15, 2002, again a Workshop on Nuclear Astrophysics was held at the Ringberg Castle near Munich. This workshop was the 11th in a series which began in May 1981. As on all previous occasions, nuclear physicists, astrophysicists, and astronomers met for one week at the spectacular Ringberg Castle to discuss problems and projects of common interest. This year's workshop was attended by 51 scientists from 11 countries many of whom had participated in previous workshops. For the first time in the history of the workshop series many more colleagues wanted to come than the Castle could accommodate and, therefore, several of the applications had to be rejected. Continuing a good tradition of the series, again several students had an opportunity to present, for the first time, their work to an international audience in a benevolently and friendly atmosphere. The workshop programme consisted of 44 talks often stimulating intensive discussions. As during all previous meetings the relaxed atmosphere of the Castle, ample time for discussions between the sessions, and the good weather provided nearly perfect conditions for a successful workshop. The topics discussed in the talks covered most aspects of nuclear astrophysics including abundance determinations, reaction rate measurements, modeling specific nucleosynthetic processes and stellar evolutionary phases, simulating stellar explosions, and discussing cosmic chemical evolution. It was amazing to see the enormous progress that has been achieved since the earlier workshops: Fully 3-dimensional simulations of stellar explosions have become feasible, some important nuclear reaction rate have been measured with astonishing accuracy, and abundance determinations in stars as well as in meteorites have reached a level of quality that was not foreseen when we started these workshops.
