Ushering in the New Age of Microlensing from Space: 21st International Microlensing Conference
ID
803793
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.

IAU Symposium 331 — SN 1987A, 30 years later – Cosmic Rays and Nuclei from Supernovae and their aftermaths
ID
821885
Dates
20 Feb 2017 - 24 Feb 2017
Location
Saint Gilles - Réunion Island, France
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
813413
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.

QUASARS AT ALL COSMIC EPOCHS
ID
835540
Dates
02 Apr 2017 - 07 Apr 2017
Location
PADOVA, Italy
Abstract
Quasars have been discovered slightly more than 50 years ago. All the improvement in telescope light gathering and in computing power notwithstanding, we still miss a clear connection between observational properties and theory for quasars, as provided, for example, by the H-R diagram for stars. We do not yet have a complete self-consistent view of nuclear activity with predictive power, as we do for main-sequence stellar sources. At the same time quasars offer many “windows open onto the unknown.” On small scales, quasar properties depend on phenomena very close to the black hole event horizon. On large scales, quasars may effect evolution of host galaxies and their circum-galactic environments. Quasars’ potential to map the matter density of the Universe and help reconstruct the Universe’s spacetime geometry is still largely unexploited.

The time is ripe for a critical assessment of our present knowledge of quasars as accreting black holes and of their evolution across the cosmic time. The aim of this meeting is to review and contextualize the main observational scenarios following an empirical approach, to present and discuss the accretion scenario, and then to analyze how a closer connection between theory and observation can be achieved, identifying those aspects of our understanding that are still on a shaky terrain and are therefore uncertain knowledge.

PICM — Physics of the Intra-Cluster Medium
ID
833548
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
813489
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.

Advances in Theoretical Cosmology in Light of Data
ID
854695
Dates
03 Jul 2017 - 28 Jul 2017
Location
Stockholm, Sweden
Abstract
The proposed Nordita Program will focus on two main themes: 1) Current status and future perspectives in cosmology. What have we learnt from currently available cosmological data? What fundamental questions in physics can be probed with cosmology? Given current technology, which of these questions can we address right now? To address these questions, the community requires a detailed understanding of the interplay between independent dataset. This is most easily achieved by bringing together experts from various sub-fields in cosmology to share ideas and discuss. Some of the key topics that will be covered at this meeting include: the nature of dark matter and dark energy; large-sky surveys, multi-frequency observations, and the complementarity of disjoint experiments; the interplay between cosmology and the standard model of particle physics; recent advances in both hardware and software development in light of cosmological aspirations. 2) The CMB and inflation. The search for primordial gravitational wave signal is ongoing and the field is expected to advance significantly by the middle of 2017. The dedicated conference will give attendees the chance to discuss contemporary results in a forum that includes representatives from both theory and experiment. Young researchers will benefit from exposure to world-renowned cosmologists while the exchange of opinion will strengthen the basis for competitive inflation and CMB research in the Nordic countries.

WAO — Workshop on Astrophysical Opacities
ID
854495
Dates
01 Aug 2017 - 04 Aug 2017
Location
Kalamazoo, MI, United States
Abstract
The availability of reliable atomic and molecular opacity tables is essential in a wide variety of astronomical models such as the solar and stellar interiors, stellar and planetary atmospheres, stellar evolution, pulsating stars and protoplanetary disks, to name a few. With the advent of powerful observational techniques, e.g. helio and asteroseismology, solar neutrino-flux measurements and exoplanet probes, of 3D hydrodynamic atmospheric simulations that include NLTE and granulation effects, of high-performance atomic and molecular computing and innovative plasma experiments, the accuracy and completeness of the opacity tables are being taken to unprecedented levels.

The Workshop on Astrophysical Opacities (WAO) intends to gather opacity data producers and consumers from both the atomic and molecular sectors in order to contribute to solving outstanding problems and to develop more effective and integrated interfaces. The last time such a workshop took place was at the IBM Venezuela Scientific Center, Caracas, Venezuela, in July 1991. Taken into consideration the success of this first WAO and the huge scientific advancements that have taken place since then in most related research fields, we have been encouraged to organize a second event. The present WAO will be held at Western Michigan University in the very welcoming town of Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA, where everything good is easily within reach. Contributed papers and student participation is specially encouraged.

Habitable Worlds 2017: A System Science Workshop
ID
847668
Start date
13 Nov 2017
Location
Laramie, Wy, United States
Abstract
The Nexus for Exoplanet System Science (NExSS), a NASA research coordination network dedicated to the study of planetary habitability, is pleased to announce a five-day conference on "Habitable Worlds 2017: A System Science Workshop" from Nov 13-17, 2017 in Laramie, WY. The field of exoplanets is currently at the cusp of a watershed moment in finding life on other worlds, propelled by the discoveries of habitable zone terrestrial planets in both ground and space-based surveys, and the potential for future telescopes to characterize the atmospheres of some of these rocky planets. Preparing for such a singular moment needs a diverse community, including Earth scientists, heliophysicists, planetary scientists, and astrophysicists.
