COLDUNIV16 — The Cold Universe
ID
661917
Dates
25 Apr 2016 - 15 Jul 2016
Location
Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract
The goal of this program is to understand the role of molecules, heavy elements and dust for star formation, and how these species affect the properties and evolution of early galaxies. Possible approaches to answer these questions will be discussed by a diverse group of astrophysicists working on star formation, galaxy formation and evolution, star bursts in extreme environments, both locally and at the highest redshifts. The timeliness of the topic is evidenced by the unprecedented millimeter/submillimeter data that is constraining key physical processes governing star formation and metal and dust enrichment in the first billion years of cosmic history. Observations of local and distant starburst galaxies indicate the existence of a tight connection between the star formation rate and molecular gas fraction, which is primarily controlled by the abundance of dust and by the intensity of interstellar far-ultraviolet radiation field. We are thus likely to witness a major breakthrough in this field during the next couple of years, as the sensitivity of the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA) will provide an unrivaled probe of the first stars and galaxies emerging from the cosmic Dark Ages.

CSQCD V — Compact Stars in the QCD phase diagram V
ID
786931
Dates
23 May 2016 - 27 May 2016
Location
L'Aquila, Italy
Abstract
The aim of this Conference is to bring together physicists working on strong interacting dense matter, QCD phase diagram, ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions with astrophysicists working on Compact Stars (from their birth in core-collapse supernovae to their old age as cold radio pulsars including binary merger events) and on related phenomena. A profound theoretical description of these phenomena necessarily involves the equation of state and transport properties of QCD matter that are derived from nonperturbative quantum field theories, many-body physics of strong interacting matter and phenomenological investigations.

The CSQCD conference will take place at the Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI) in L'Aquila (Italy). GSSI is an international PhD school and a center for research and higher education. On May 25 the CSQCD conference will take place at the Gran Sasso National Laboratories (LNGS). LNGS is one of the four national laboratories of INFN (National Institute for Nuclear Physics). It is the largest underground laboratory in the world for experiments in particle physics, particle astrophysics and nuclear astrophysics. Participants to the conference will be picked up at the hotels and transported to LNGS. An underground guided tour will take place that day.

SAPP — School of Astroparticle Physics : Physics of the Universe in X-rays
ID
787189
Dates
23 May 2016 - 28 May 2016
Location
Saint Michel l'Observatoire (Haute Provence), France
Abstract
This school is aimed at researchers, including postdocs and PhD students. It is organized by the French community but is open to international participants. We propose to review the recent developments in X-ray astronomy through these following axes:

— Advances in understanding high-energy sources (compact objects, accreting binary sources and active galactic nuclei, supernova explosions, gamma-ray bursts) with two complementary courses on clusters of galaxies and applications in fundamental physics.

— State of the art and technological advances in terms of telescopes and detectors. These courses are intended for astrophysicists (particularly those that might later carry instrumental projects) so that they are well aware of the capabilities, but also the limitations of the current techniques and their future developments.

— Data analysis through tutorials on real data. This is particularly important for non-specialists who may get lost in the jargon and specific procedures. Each attendant will have followed at least once all the stages of the analysis with a specialist, making sure that no critical step is forgotten.

Fourth International Conference on the Nature and Ontology of Spacetime
ID
764420
Dates
30 May 2016 - 02 Jun 2016
Location
Varna, Bulgaria
Abstract
The Fourth International Conference on the Nature and Ontology of Spacetime will commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the publication of Einstein's general relativity in Annalen der Physik in 1916. While the Scientific Organizing Committee invites papers from physicists and philosophers on any topics related to the nature and ontology of spacetime, at this conference we especially wish to encourage submissions on not fully explored implications of general relativity for other areas of research in physics, cosmology, mathematics, philosophy of physics and for our understanding of the world. In addition to talks and poster sessions, special tea / coffee hours will be included in the program to stimulate more informal discussions among the participants. For this reason we encourage interested colleagues to attend the conference even if they do not plan to give a talk or present a poster. Contributed papers should be submitted in the form of extended abstracts of up to two pages by Sunday, January 31, 2016. Submissions will be reviewed by the Scientific Organizing Committee and notification of acceptance will be given by Monday, March 14, 2016. The extended abstracts, in English, should be emailed to 2016conference@minkowskiinstitute.org. The conference proceedings will be published.

The main goal of this event is get together experimentalists, observers and modelers interested to contribute to the progress of the knowledge in

astrochemistry. Additionally, during the symposium, we will have two hands-on workshops: One focused in experimental astrochemistry and other focused on observations. The hands-on workshops will have activities on the proposal submissions to the LNLS (Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory) laboratory, data reduction and to LLAMA (Large Latin American Millimeter Array) and ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter Array) radio observatories. During this meeting we will also have an opportunity to follow a real astrochemical experiment (in real time) at one of the beamlines of the LNLS that simulates the interaction between UV and soft X-rays with

astrophysical ice analogs.

LSSGF — Large Scale Structure and Galaxy Flows
ID
741923
Dates
03 Jul 2016 - 09 Jul 2016
Location
Quy Nhon, Vietnam
Abstract
According to the paradigm of hierarchical clustering, deviant motions from cosmic expansion arise as matter segregates into high and low regimes. It is possible to determine, alternatively, the motions that should arise from the observed distribution of galaxies or the distribution of matter from the observed motions of galaxies. It is a fundamental success of the paradigm that the two methodologies are in general agreement.

In recent years there has been significant improvement in our knowledge of both the distribution of galaxies through comprehensive redshift surveys and the deviant motions of galaxies through measurements of distances. These observational advances have stimulated interest in methods of interpretation. The constraints on the distribution of matter and cosmological parameters are becoming increasingly precise. Yet major questions remain.

The conference will consist of plenary sessions for in depth oral presentations (review talks and specialized talks on specific topics) and posters. The contributions are either solicited or selected among submitted abstracts. The program will be available after the deadline of abstracts submission (March 3rd, 2016).

Location
Horta, Faial, Azores Islands, Portugal
Abstract
This International Advanced School addresses the topics at the forefront of scientific research being conducted in the fields of stellar physics and exoplanetary science. It is mainly aimed at PhD and MSc students (although postdocs are also encouraged to apply) in any field of Astrophysics.

Students will be given the opportunity to present their own research work by bringing a poster to the School. The School provides an opportunity for the young researchers to network with fellow students and lecturers, thereby promoting awareness of areas outside the main specialization of the student, and potential cross-fertilization of techniques and concepts.

The School covers two scientific topics that share many synergies and resources: Asteroseismology and Exoplanets. Therefore, the program aims at building opportunities for cooperation and sharing of methods that will benefit both communities. This cooperation has experienced great success in the context of past space missions such as CoRoT and Kepler. Upcoming photometry and astrometry from space, as well as complementary data from ground-based networks, will continue to foster this cooperation. Observations of bright stars and clusters in the ecliptic plane are being made by the repurposed K2 mission, and NASA's TESS and ESA's CHEOPS missions will soon start obtaining similar data over the entire sky. ESA's PLATO mission will then build upon these successes by providing photometric light curves on a wealth of stars. Ground-based spectroscopy from the Stellar Observations Network Group (SONG) will complement the satellite data for the brightest stars in the sky, as will also be the case with the new generation of high-precision spectrographs being developed for the ESO, like the Echelle SPectrograph for Rocky Exoplanets and Stable Spectroscopic Observations (ESPRESSO).

IAU Symposia: The Multi-Messenger Astrophysics of the Galactic Centre
ID
760469
Dates
18 Jul 2016 - 22 Jul 2016
Location
Cairns, Australia
Abstract
The Galactic Centre represents a unique and extreme environment in the Galaxy. Hosting the Galaxy’s supermassive black hole, the Milky Way’s most concentrated dense gas reservoir and most extreme star-formation environment, it is the nearest analogue to both an AGN and a starburst system. Definitionally the bottom of the Galaxy's gravitational well, the Galactic Centre should be the region displaying the brightest radiative signature of dark matter decay/annihilation in the Galaxy. Topics - Accretion inflow/outflow: approaching the Event Horizon - Dense gas in the Galactic Centre and other nuclei and its star formation potential; young and massive stars in the Galactic Centre - Nuclear clusters; cluster dynamics; stellar evolution and end products in the crowded Galactic Centre environment - Magnetic fields; cosmic ray acceleration, propagation, dynamics and radiation in the Galactic Centre - The Galactic Centre’s relation to other galactic nuclei; giant outflows; feedback - Dark Matter in the Galactic Centre: indirect signatures, expected distribution, backgrounds, extracting potential signals in a crowded environment

Long-Range-Interacting Many Body Systems: from Atomic to Astrophysical Scales
ID
792708
Dates
25 Jul 2016 - 29 Jul 2016
Location
Trieste, Italy
Abstract
Long-range interactions, decaying like an inverse power law in the distance, are ubiquitous in nature. In the past decade we witnessed a surge of interest in the field, be it in the statistical physics community where the peculiar dynamic and thermodynamic properties of such systems have been studied, or even more recently in atomic and quantum many-body physics, where long-range interactions have become accessible in ion trap experiments, ultracold atomic or molecular gases, in cavity quantum electrodynamics, and others. While noteworthy progress has been made in many directions, the research in the subfields has been mostly unconnected. The conference will feature introductory review talks of the relevant subfields as well as research talks on the most recent developments, in order to provide an overview of the common characteristics, methods, and challenges in the study of long-range systems.

Conference on Enceladus and the Icy Moons of Saturn
ID
772785
Dates
26 Jul 2016 - 29 Jul 2016
Location
Boulder, United States
Abstract
The planetary community is invited to the first major international conference devoted specifically to Enceladus and the Mid-Sized Icy Satellites of Saturn. Through its array of instruments and global mapping opportunities, the Cassini mission has revolutionized our understanding of the Saturn system, and the surprisingly complex icy moons are no exception. The active jets of Enceladus are chief among the new discoveries. Others include color/thermal anomalies, equatorial ridges, satellite-derived rings, resurfacing and thermal relaxation, librations, and global fracture network surprises, to name just a few. The conference will be open to all scientific aspects of Enceladus and its neighboring moons. Topics include (but are not limited to) geology, geophysics, geochemistry and mineralogy, active jets and their properties and origins, formation and evolution, astrobiology, and future investigations of these bodies. Comparative planetology is encouraged! A major focus will be the new results from the 2015 Cassini encounters with Enceladus and the other icy moons. Contributions from Cassini, Voyager, and groundbased studies are welcome, as are suggestions for additional topics. The conference, in planning for almost two years, will feature invited speakers, contributed talks, and contributed posters; major reviews of key topics will also be presented. The conference will also lead to the production of a printed volume summarizing the findings of the conference, and encompassing the state of the art in our knowledge and wisdom concerning these amazing icy worlds.

Abstract
The  Sixth International Conference on Mars Polar Science and Exploration  is the latest in a continuing series of meetings intended to promote the exchange of knowledge and ideas regarding the polar regions of Mars. This group is international and interdisciplinary, and we welcome any scientist with relevant experience. This conference is designed to pull together the current state of Mars polar research from many fields, including geology, atmospheric, and climate science. Primarily, the aim is to focus on advancements since the 5th Conference, and attendees will have the opportunity to share their advancements with like-minded colleagues. Additionally, two field trips, one prior and one mid-conference, will highlight the beauty of Iceland and her relevance to martian analogs. Other topics of interest will include terrestrial analogs and current and future missions to investigate the martian poles. In line with the goal to fully understand the polar environments on Mars, we will synthesize outstanding questions and developments in a publication dedicated to the results of this conference.

IAU Symposia: New Frontiers in Black Hole Astrophysics
ID
761851
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

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
803649
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
770233
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

ECLA 2016 — European Conference on Laboratory Astrophysics - Gas on the Rocks
ID

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

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.

Ushering in the New Age of Microlensing from Space: 21st International Microlensing Conference
ID
803760
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.
