IAU Symposia: New Frontiers in Black Hole Astrophysics
ID
761939
Dates
12 Sep 2016 - 16 Sep 2016
Location
Ljubljana, Slovenia
Abstract
A key unsolved issue in modern astrophysics is how black holes accrete matter and subsequently launch focused jets of material to speeds close to that of light, releasing copious energy in the process. This occurs over many orders of magnitude in mass, size and timescale in a wide range of astrophysical objects but the mechanisms converting gravitational potential energy into radiated energy remain poorly understood. These systems also provide unique laboratories for the study of physics in extreme conditions such as strong gravity, large magnetic fields, ultra-relativistic particle acceleration and, as such, may also provide valuable probes of space-time and tests of fundamental physics. The goal of this symposium is to bring together observational and theoretical experts in the astrophysics of black-hole driven systems to discuss the current state-of-the-art in accretion, jet formation and acceleration and emission mechanisms - and more generally source physics, with theoretical physicists who aim to use astrophysical objects to test current theories of gravity and ultimately unified theories of quantum gravity.

The changing face of galaxies: uncovering transformational physics
ID
771861
Start date
18 Sep 2016
Location
Hobart, Tasmania, Australia
Abstract
Fundamental to our understanding of galaxy formation is the question of how the galaxies seen at high redshift were transformed into the galaxy population we see around us today. There have been profound changes to the galaxy population in terms of both structure and activity. Structurally, galaxies are known to grow in size and change in morphological mix over time and this morphological mix is also well known to be strongly dependent on environment, with a much higher fraction of elliptical and lenticular galaxies in high density regions. Concerning activity, the global rate of star formation is seen to peak at redshift, z~1-2, declining to the present day, and it is again strongly dependent on environment. Activity due to the accretion of gas onto super-massive black holes similarly declines to the present day.

CSS 2016 — Cosmology on Small Scales: Local Hubble Expansion and Selected Controversies in Cosmology
ID
803572
Dates
21 Sep 2016 - 24 Sep 2016
Location
Prague, Czech Republic
Abstract
The problem of cosmological expansion on small scales (e.g., inside the planetary systems) has a long history, dating back to the papers by C.G. McVittie from 1932 and 1933, and quite a large number of researchers dealt with this topic in the subsequent few decades. Although most of them concluded that the Hubble expansion should be strongly suppressed at small distances, there is no commonly-established criterion for such suppression at present and, moreover, the various estimates of the Hubble expansion often contradict each other. Besides, there is some indirect evidence that cosmological expansion might be important, for example, in the long-term evolution of the Solar system. So, it is timely to gather the specialists from different disciplines, ranging from planetology to galaxy evolution, to discuss the problem of local cosmological influences from various points of view, both theoretical and observational.

VIALACTEA 2016 — The Milky Way as a Star Formation Engine: Towards a predictive Galaxy-scale model of the Star Formation Life-Cycle
ID
770211
Dates
26 Sep 2016 - 30 Sep 2016
Location
Rome, Italy
Abstract
The Milky Way Galaxy is a complex ecosystem where a cyclical transformation process brings diffuse baryonic matter into dense unstable condensations to form stars. Although considerable progress has been made in the last two decades in the understanding of the evolution of isolated dense molecular clumps toward the onset of gravitational collapse and the formation of stars and planetary systems, several key-questions remain elusive. The creation of a fundamental theory or, rather, of a galaxy-scale predictive model for star formation, is a key challenge. We enter a new era where a new suite of cutting-edge Milky Way surveys of the entire Galactic Plane have already started to transform the view of our Galaxy as a global star formation engine. The combination of near-IR ground surveys data, mid-IR and far-IR dust continuum obtained by ESA's HERSCHEL and NASA's SPITZER and WISE satellites, submillimeter and radio continuum, and gas-tracing atomic and molecular spectroscopy from ground-based antennas, is for the first time unlocking access to angular scales below 30" across 4 decades in wavelength for both the dust and the three gas components of the ISM (molecular, atomic and ionised). The integrated science analysis of these massive and diverse datasets requires new concepts of 3D-based visual analytics tools that integrate data access, sources and features extraction, model fitting and source classifications.

IAU Symposia: Astroinformatics

Dates
29 Sep 2016 - 04 Oct 2016
Location
Sorrento, Italy
Abstract
The proposed symposium will bring together world-class experts to address the methodological and technological challenges posed by massive data sets produced by the new generation of telescopes and observatories. Astronomy is at the forefront of Big Data science with exponentially growing data volumes and data rates, now entering the petascale regime at optical, infrared and radio wavelengths. The data structures are not simple, and the procedures for using them to gain astrophysical insights are not obvious. Astronomy is truly becoming data-driven in the ways that are both quantitatively and qualitatively different from the past. The informational content of the modern data sets is so high that archival research and data mining not merely profitable, but practically obligatory; researchers who obtain the data can only extract a small fraction of the science that is enabled by it.

Location
Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract
Astronomy education research has become a respected subdiscipline of astronomy. Scientific results from this field have great potential to enhance the teaching and learning of astronomy for learners of many ages. New results and research methodologies from the cognition and learning sciences domains are now able to influence the work of astronomy educators, enabling them to make informed innovations for the teaching of astronomy. Generally, professional astronomers who have responsibilities that include teaching are not aware of the results of astronomy education research, and this Symposium can help expand attendee's awareness of results, as well as providing a forum for active experts in astronomy education to jointly plan the research agenda for the upcoming decade. Thus, the central objective of the meeting is aiming at an increase of the quality and impact of astronomy education.

GRAMADO, RIO GRANDE DO SUL, Brazil
Abstract
Our understanding of the origin of the Universe, of its evolution and the physical laws that govern its behavior, as well as on the different states of matter that make up its evolutionary stage, reached in recent years levels never before imagined. This is due mainly to the new and recent discoveries in astronomy and relativistic astrophysics as well as to experiments on particle and nuclear physics that made the traditional boundaries of knowledge on physics to be overcome. As a result we have presently a new understanding about the Universe in its two extreme domains, the very large and the very small: the recognition of the deep connections that exist between quarks and the cosmos. Based on the understanding of the intimate relationship between quarks and cosmos, the IWARA meetings is focused on topics that connect these two extreme physical domains.

Abstract
Hot-wiring the Transient Universe 5 will explore opportunities and challenges of massively parallel time domain surveys coupled with rapid coordinated multi-wavelength follow-up observations. The interdisciplinary agenda includes future and ongoing science investigations, information infrastructure for publishing observations in real time, as well as novel data science to classify events and systems to optimize follow-up campaigns. Time domain astronomy is at the fore of modern astrophysics and crosses fields from solar physics and solar system objects, through stellar variability, to explosive phenomena at galactic and cosmological distances. Recent rapid progress by instruments in space and on the ground has been toward a continuous record of the electromagnetic sky with ever increasing coverage, sensitivity, and temporal resolution. With the advent of gravitational wave and neutrino observatories we are witnessing the birth of multi-messenger astronomy.

Abstract
The activity of stars such as the Sun modulates the environment within their astrospheres. This variable forcing is mediated via stellar magnetic fields, radiative and energetic particulate flux, stellar winds and magnetic storms. In turn this influences planetary atmospheres, climate and habitability. Studies of this intimate relationship between the parent star, its astrophere and the planets that it hosts have reached a certain level of maturity within our own solar system – fueled both by advances in theoretical modelling and a host of satellites that observe the Sun-Earth system. Based on this understanding the first attempts are being made to understand Star-Planet interactions and their coupled evolution, which have relevance for habitability and the search for habitable planets in other stellar environments.

SMA Science in the Next Decade
ID

Start date
27 Oct 2016
Location
Taipei, Taiwan
Abstract
The Submillimeter Array (SMA) has provided forefront capabilities for high spatial and spectral resolution observations at submillimeter wavelengths from its excellent site on Mauna Kea, Hawaii since 2004. SMA observations have resulted in new insights into a wide variety of astrophysical phenomena, from protoplanetary disks to high redshift galaxies. The much larger international Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is now in routine operation at millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths. To maintain a leading role in the ALMA era, the SMA project has embarked on an ambitious, staged, strategic upgrade to dramatically improve its sensitivity and observing speed. The new wideband SMA -- the wSMA -- will be ideally suited to spectral line surveys and studies of submillimeter sources in the time domain, as well as a wealth of other applications. This workshop will provide a forum for astronomers from the SMA collaboration and user community to promote, discuss, and elaborate key science cases for wSMA observations in the next decade. The workshop will also facilitate the forging of collaborations to help realize these new science opportunities.

Abstract
Galactic Archaeology aims at unveiling the Milky Way’s history by studying the fossil record preserved in stellar light. Large surveys are targeting samples of 105 to 106 stars to measure their chemical compositions. Together with distances, ages and 3D velocities, the chemical information will have a revolutionary impact on understanding galaxy formation. Stellar physics combines the observations with theoretical interpretations of the structure of stars. This knowledge is essential to decipher the observed chemical patterns within the Galaxy’s stellar populations. Major new developments in stellar physics have a direct impact on understanding the observational data. This conference will bring together world-leading experts on Galactic Archaeology and Stellar physics in order to exploit the wealth of information provided by new and on-going surveys of the Galaxy.

Dates
21 Nov 2016 - 25 Nov 2016
Location
Madrid, Spain
Abstract
Over the last decade European research activities in the field of laboratory astrophysics have experienced an impressive increase in their potential to address astrophysical problems, in particular by providing essential information on the physical and chemical processes leading to chemical complexity in space resulting in star and planet formation. These activities have been motivated by the interpretation of astronomical observations obtained with single dish telescopes and short baseline interferometers. The wealth of data obtained with ALMA, space facilities (Herschel, Spitzer, Rosetta, the coming JWST, E-ELT), and other ground based observatories (VLTI, NOEMA, ...), require new methodologies for the astrophysical modeling that will lead to new challenges for laboratory astrophysics. This conference aims to address the state of the art in laboratory astrophysics within the context of these new astrophysical data and to improve communication and collaboration between astrophysicists, physicists and (geo) chemists. Hence, the conference structure will consist of invited talks presenting topics in astrophysics and planetary science and related laboratory astrophysics activities. Contributing talks will be selected to complement the topics from the astrophysical, laboratory, and theoretical/modeling points of view. The conference will cover studies in many fields such as spectroscopy, analytical (geo) chemistry, reactivity, nanoscience, and quantum chemistry, pertaining to different matter components (gas, plasma, PAHs, ices, dust, solid surfaces, ...).
Topics
1. Comets, asteroids, meteorites and the primitive Solar System nebula: formation and evolution 2. Protoplanetary disks and planet formation 3. Planet, Moon, and exoplanet surfaces and atmospheres 4. The signatures of the evolving interstellar medium 5. Dense Clouds: the gas-ice interface and molecular complexity 6. Chemical fingerprints of star formation 7. The late stages of star evolution: dust formation 8. Supernovae and shocks: high-energy processing of matter

IAU Symposia: The lives and death-throes of massive stars
ID

Dates
28 Nov 2016 - 02 Dec 2016
Location
Auckland, New Zealand
Abstract
Research on Massive Stars is undergoing a period of rapid progress. While these stars are relatively few in number they are the main driver of chemical and dynamical evolution in galaxies via their stellar winds and explosive deaths in core-collapse supernovae. Our understanding of massive stars is going through a remarkable time of change with long held convictions being shown to be incomplete. This evidence arises from new research concerning the formation and evolution of massive stars and linking this to their deaths in core-collapse supernovae. Now is a fortuitous time to make significant advances in massive star research. We propose a meeting with the central rationale to bring together the two communities that study massive stars and their supernovae.

Start date
01 Feb 2017
Location
Pasadena, California, United States
Abstract
We happily invite the exoplanet community to the 21st International Microlensing Conference entitled "Ushering in the New Age of Microlensing from Space". The field of gravitational microlensing is burgeoning, in particular due to the success of several space-spaced missions. We will highlight breaking results from K2's Campaign 9 ( K2C9 ), which constitutes the first combined ground- and space-based microlensing survey, as well as progress in Spitzer's program of obtaining "satellite parallaxes." Talks on ground-based surveys and advances in theory will also be featured prominently. Finally, we will have a number of talks on the revolutionary promise of the WFIRST mission for exoplanet science, which was recently approved to enter Phase A. Together these endeavors provide invaluable insight into topics such as the Galactic distribution of exoplanets, the abundance of free-floating planets, and the demographics of cold exoplanets.

Abstract
Supernovae (SNe), along with their remnants, are central in many active fields of research as the key sources of cosmic high-energy particles and heavy elements, the privileged sites of cosmic dust formation, and the primary agents of chemical and dynamical evolution of galaxies. Moreover, they are among the rare celestial events visible with the naked eye. Yet, many open issues still need to be deeply explored such as the nature of the SN progenitors and the final stages of stellar evolution, explosion mechanisms and nucleosynthesis, shock acceleration processes and the question of the origin of cosmic rays.
Topics
Massive Stars as SN progenitors, Supernovae as stellar explosive outcomes, Supernova explosion mechanisms, Supernova outcomes and impacts, Particle acceleration and Origin of Cosmic Rays, SN 1987A, thirty years later, Non-thermal multi-wavelength/multi-messenger data on Supernovae and their remnants.

The remarkable life of a BCG
ID

Dates
20 Feb 2017 - 24 Feb 2017
Location
Bad Moos , Italy
Abstract
In the last years a strong effort has been devoted to the study of the brightest cluster galaxies (BCG). Several studies are focusing on BCG properties adopting a multi-wavelength approach, other are using numerical and semi-analitical models to describe BCG formation and evolution. These works have been fostered by extensive follow-up of newly discovered SZ clusters at high-redshift, by in-depth studies with Hubble such as CLASH, and a rapidly increasing amount of data in the radio and submm bands thanks to ALMA and the upgraded JVLA. This strong interest in the origin and evolution of BCG is mainly due to their unique role in the context of galaxy formation, evolution of galaxy clusters, and interactions between nuclear activity and surrounding diffuse baryons. With this workshop we intend to bring together the most active researchers in this field to discuss the latest results, and compare the outcomes of new observational campaigns with numerical simulations and semi-analitical models.

PICM — Physics of the Intra-Cluster Medium
ID
833460
Dates
03 Apr 2017 - 07 Apr 2017
Location
Beijing, China
Abstract
The Intra Cluster Medium (ICM) constitutes the largest baryonic component of galaxy clusters. It is affected by gravitational and non-gravitational processes due to the interaction with the cluster galaxy population. It is now widely recognized that the cluster environment plays a fundamental role in determining the evolution of its galaxy population. In turn, feedback in cluster cores offer the unique opportunity to understand the interactions between star formation events and nuclear activity within the surrounding medium.

Theoretical models and numerical simulations have been developed in order to capture the complexity of this interaction and to understand when, where, and how feedback takes place. At the same time the ICM is an important diagnostic of the dynamics of the cluster itself, and an exhaustive understanding of its properties is crucial for a full understanding of the growth of cosmic structures at large, and the measurement of cosmological parameters. This workshop will focus on the physics of the ICM and its relation with the different mass components of galaxy clusters. The aim is to provide an overview of the many exciting recent results at vastly different wavelengths (Radio, SZ, sub-mm, IR, optical, X-ray, gamma-ray) and use them to challenge theoretical models and advanced numerical simulations.

Abstract
The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will be the world’s largest and most powerful radio telescope. When the SKA begins operations early in the next decade, it will deliver spectacular new data sets that are expected to transform our understanding of physics, astronomy and cosmology.

To fully realise the potential of the SKA as a machine for fundamental physics, the SKA organisation seeks to engage the theoretical physics community in the science case and design considerations for the full array. To initiate this discussion, we will be holding a focused workshop in May 2017, in which we aim to bring together radio astronomers and theorists to jointly consider ways in which the SKA can test and explore fundamental physics.

Globular cluster systems and their host galaxies
ID

Dates
05 Jun 2017 - 09 Jun 2017
Location
Bad Moos , Italy
Abstract
The formation and evolution of globular cluster (GC) systems is still an unsolved problem of modern astrophysics despite years of study. New observations have revealed that the distribution of sizes, masses and mass-to-light ratios of small stellar systems is largely continuous thanks to the discovery of a growing number of ultracompact dwarf galaxies and related objects, all of which have properties remarkably similar to GCs. At the same time, steady progress is being made in characterising the properties of GC systems, not only in our own Milky Way, but also in a growing number of local Universe galaxies. All these new observations add new pieces to the puzzle of how and where GCs form, starting as early as the epoch of reionization within the first billion years after the Big Bang, and then continuing through the hierarchical assembly of their host galaxies. GC systems are also providing new insight on the properties of galaxy halos at large radii. Simulations have now reached the size and mass scales relevant for direct modelling of GC system formation in a cosmological context. This meeting will bring together the leading observers and theorists from diverse backgrounds to review the current state of the field, discuss existing scenarios, and stimulate the exploration of new collaborative proposals for future modeling and for observations with next-generation telescopes.

The meeting will place GC systems in the context of their host galaxy and the interplay between them.
