Fundamental Physics with the Square Kilometre Array
ID
812631
Dates
01 May 2017 - 05 May 2017
Location
Flic-en-Flac, Mauritius
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
813390
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.

Abstract
This workshop is hosted by the StarFormMapper (SFM) project, an EU Horizon2020 funded collaboration between the University of Leeds, University of Cardiff, University Grenoble Alps and Quasar Science Resources SL. Our aim is to combine state-of-the-art models with observations from ESA's Gaia and Herschel missions to map the density distribution of star formation regions, to constrain the mechanisms that underlie massive star and star cluster formation. Combining observation and theory, this workshop will tackle the the big issues of this field, including: the clustering of stars and gas, the initial conditions required to form star clusters form and their early kinematic and dynamical evolution (sub-structure, mass segregation).

RTSRE — Robotic Telescopes, Student Research and Education Conference

Dates
18 Jun 2017 - 22 Jun 2017
Location
San Diego, United States
Abstract
The Robotic Telescopes, Student Research and Education: Past, Present, Future conference will focus on the use of remotely-located, relatively small, typically optical robotic telescopes to support, promote and drive research undertaken by high school and undergraduate students for scientific research, while also addressing educational outcomes and uses. The conference will aim to tie diverse strands into a coherent story of where we have been (the past), where we are now (the present), and outline the pathways and challenges going forward (the future). In doing so, we endeavor to provide a synthesis of the relatively disconnected communities surrounding remote and robotic telescopes, scientific research, and astronomy education to provide a global picture of the field in its current state. Published, peer-reviewed conference proceedings will feature invited and contributed papers, as well as poster summaries.

Abstract
Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) and P. N. Lebedev Physical Institute (LPI) announce Thirteenth International Summer School of Modern Astrophysics. The focus of the school is on theoretical astrophysics, including theory and numerical simulation in a wide range of astrophysical contexts such as accretion onto stars, black holes and neutron stars; planet formation; the physics of black holes, neutron stars and magnetars and their magnetospheres. The school takes place on 3 - 7 July 2017 at the MIPT campus in Dolgoprudny near Moscow, Russia. The school welcomes undergraduate and graduate students, and postdocs. The working language is English. The participants can also apply for a two-week program immediately following the school, 10 - 21 July 2017. This program allows selected participants to participate in in-depth discussions of high-energy astrophysics theory and numerical methods, as well as potentially getting research experience by starting small science projects. The first week of this program will be led by Alexander Tchekhovskoy and focus on the wide range of astrophysical phenomena powered by compact objects. The second week will be led by Alexander Philippov and focus on kinetic effects in plasmas in various astrophysical contexts.

ID

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.

IV Cosmology and the Quantum Vacuum
ID
880456
Dates
04 Sep 2017 - 08 Sep 2017
Location
Segovia, Spain
Abstract
This is the fourth edition of a series of workshops, focused on different aspects of modern theoretical cosmology, the challenge to be consistent with experimental data and the necessary connection of cosmological theories with the quantum nature of the vacuum. A basic question in modern cosmology is why we do not see vacuum fluctuations at cosmological scales? In addition, should the singularities of cosmological theories treated as necessary ingredients of the classical theory or should these be the indicators of an underlying quantum theory yet to be discovered? In this aspect, in this workshop we aim to bring along all the leading scientists working on these problems and present all the up to date results in these strongly interdependent physics areas. Hence the workshop will cover topics related to modified theories of gravities, other theories of Dark Energy and Inflation, the description of the universe’s evolution in these theories and the elegant and compulsory modification of these within the theoretical framework of quantum gravity, with Loop Quantum Cosmology being the most elegant theory providing up to date a singularity free cosmological evolution. The description and understanding of the quantum vacuum is always a challenge to these theories so the understanding of the main manifestation of the quantum vacuum, the Casimir effect, is always a challenge.

CNNP2017 — Conference on Neutrinos and Nuclear Physics
ID
879358
Dates
15 Oct 2017 - 21 Oct 2017
Location
Catania, Italy
Abstract
The main objective of CNNP2017 is to promote a collaborative framework of researchers from the fields of nuclear, neutrino, astro and dark-matter physics, to discuss experiments and theories in which nuclear physics aspects are particularly relevant. At present, nuclear structure plays an ever growing role in the mentioned fields of fundamental physics, but still a lot needs to be done. The overlap between different communities is an unavoidable, despite demanding, feature in order to face several challenges of modern fundamental physics. The sharing of different experimental and theoretical techniques and the exchange of technical experiences and know-how are perhaps the best resource to build a unified view of the afore mentioned scientific problems. In this context, it is of utmost importance to allow people working at the intersections of these fields to meet regularly to exchange ideas and results. For this reason, the CNNP2017 aims at evolving in the long term into a periodic meeting.

A preliminary list of the topics to be developed during the Conference is given below: Nuclear double beta decays; Nuclear structure in connection with neutrino physics; Nuclear reactions as a probe for weak decays; Neutrino-nucleus interaction at low and high energy; Supernova models and detection of supernova neutrinos; Solar models and detection of solar neutrinos; Direct and indirect dark-matter searches; Rare beta decays of nuclei for neutrino-mass measurements; Neutrino oscillations and matter effects; Anomalies in reactor neutrinos; New related detection technologies

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.
