Conference on Enceladus and the Icy Moons of Saturn
ID
772752
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.

MODEST-16 NYC: The Interplay Between Gas and Gravitational Dynamics
ID
812699
Dates
06 Sep 2016 - 09 Sep 2016
Location
American Museum of Natural History, United States
Abstract
The American Museum of Natural History is going to host the MODEST-16 NYC meeting from September 6-9, 2016. MODEST-16 NYC is a conference on the interplay between gas and stars in dense stellar systems (star clusters, dwarf galaxies, UCDs, galactic nuclei) and related processes (such as star formation, galaxy formation/evolution, black hole growth/accretion/dynamics, etc.) with an emphasis on the development of theoretical models, in particular numerical techniques.

Hot-wiring the Transient Universe V
ID
781662
Dates
10 Oct 2016 - 14 Oct 2016
Location
Pennsylvania, United States
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.

Ushering in the New Age of Microlensing from Space: 21st International Microlensing Conference
ID
803848
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.
