1.Present and Future Neutrino Physics
 Dates 29 Sep 2014 → 19 Dec 2014
[ID=625796] Go to top of page
 LocationUC Santa Barbara, United States
 Abstract The recent discovery of a non-zero mixing angle ?13 by reactor neutrino disappearance experiments has initiated the precision era of lepton flavor physics. Therefore it is timely to identify strategies to determine the remaining parameters of the three active neutrinos, such as the neutrino mass hierarchy and the leptonic Dirac CP phase. Furthermore, weak but ubiquitous hints for sterile neutrinos need to be assessed. In the astrophysics domain, the IceCube discovery of neutrino events at the highest neutrino energies yet measured (~PeV) may have initiated neutrino astronomy as a new discipline for research. The pointing nature of neutrinos, and their negligible absorption, should allow them to reveal the sources of the highest energetic cosmic rays. Furthermore, the flavor distribution of these neutrinos may possibly implicate the dynamical properties of these cosmic accelerators. This Neutrino Program aims to review the current status of neutrino physics at this decisive moment for experimental neutrino physics, and to identify the prospects and challenges for the future. The potential of emerging technologies will be studied.
 Topics neutrino oscillations; nature of neutrino mass; absolute neutrino mass scale; models for neutrino masses and mixings; neutrino physics beyond the Standard Model; and neutrinos as messengers for the sources and dynamics which generate ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays

 LocationBaltimore, MD, United States
 Abstract An International Symposium Honouring Mathematical Physicist Jean-Pierre Vigier. The last age of discovery occurred about 100 years ago at the turn of the 20th century with the advent of Quantum Mechanics; the 2nd regime in the progression Classical Mechanics - Quantum Mechanics and now to the advent of the 3rd regime: Unified Field Mechanics. Our goal is that this IXth Vigier conference will create a place in history like the series of Solvay Conferences (Conseils Solvay) beginning in Brussels, Belgium 1n 1911, where Niels Bohr (5th, 1927) told Einstein to 'stop telling God what to do.' May we put our minds together, seek inspiration, and begin to rigorously formalize Unified Field Theory.

 LocationSanta Barbara, United States
 Organizer Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
 Abstract Studies of Galactic and stellar structure are entering an era replete with data from large space- and ground-based projects. The combination of large photometric surveys carried out in the last 15 years, extensive photometric-variability databases allowing the inner structure of thousands of stars to be studied, and vast high-resolution spectroscopic surveys probing the detailed chemical composition of hundreds of thousands of stars, hold the promise of a new synthesis of stellar and Galactic astrophysics. These data will in a few years be complemented by precise astrometric measurements from Gaia. This conference will bring together experts in the fields of stellar astrophysics, Milky Way structure, and stellar populations in the local Universe. ;This conference (and the associated program) will focus on the interplay between the improved physical understanding of stars obtained from future data, studies of the structure of the Milky Way and external galaxies, and inferences about the physical processes shaping the evolution of galactic disks. ;Our conference will place a heavy emphasis on interaction between sub-disciplines as opposed to a densely packed schedule of contributed talks.

13.EVOPLANETS_C15 — Physics of Exoplanets: From Earth-sized to Mini-Neptunes
 Dates 23 Feb 2015 → 27 Feb 2015
[ID=661735] Go to top of page
 LocationSanta Barbara, United States
 Organizer Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
 Abstract This conference will address the science of planetary interiors by combining recent observations of exoplanets, advances in planetary orbital dynamics, and discoveries in experimental and theoretical high pressure science. An emphasis will be placed on planets with radii up to 2.5 times that of the Earth. This conference is intended to synthesize recent advances from astrophysics and geophysics to advance our understanding of the composition, structure, and evolution of rocky planets. The discovery of such primarily rocky, super-Earth planets beyond the solar system is rapidly expanding the scope of traditional interior geophysics. The diverse interiors, atmospheres with varying amounts of gas and volatile elements, and potential oceans on such planets spawn broader questions about their formation, including the physics of protoplanetary disks, the accumulation of refractory material, the dynamical interactions of embryonic rocky bodies and gas, and the build-up of rocky planets with associated lighter material. New astronomical observations, such as measurements of radii and masses of nearly Earth-size planets, transit-timing variations, orbital resonances, the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect, and the frequency of planets as a function of size, orbital properties, and stellar host properties, are now informing the physics of planet formation and providing the boundary conditions that constrain the interior structures of rocky planets. New laboratory measurements using diamond anvil cells and shock wave experiments can access an extended range of pressure and temperature conditions. ;Ab initio simulations enable us to characterize planetary materials over the entire range of conditions in the interiors of exoplanets. Combining theory with experimental results enable us to construct more realistic models of exoplanet interiors. Advances in computational methods for simulating large-scale convection allow us to characterize their thermal structure and evolution.

 Abstract This conference is dedicated to understanding how our solar system formed, and how its architecture compares with other planetary systems around other stars. The overarching theme of this year’s conference will be devoted to answering the question: how "normal" is our solar system? We will explore this topic on a large variety of scales. The goal will be to place the planets, our star, and indeed our galaxy in an evolutionary context and in so doing assess whether our solar system formed as a result of circumstances common to our galaxy or whether it is the product of a number of rare or unlikely events.

21.2nd Workshop on Measuring Precise Radial Velocities

[ID=651697] Go to top of page
 LocationNew Haven, United States
 Abstract This meeting follows up the successful 2010 Penn State workshop:  "Astronomy of Exoplanets with Precise Radial Velocities."  The detection of near Earth analogs will require an increase in  Doppler measurement precision to at least 0.1 m/s.  The community has worked hard to reach 1 m/s precision; now we need  new solutions to measure masses of rocky planets around nearby  stars.  The meeting will be driven by the following questions:   What is the state of the art precision at various facilities?  To better understand this, we invite participants to enter  their data in a "beauty contest"  showing examples of the best time series measurements (RV or photometry) from the facilities that they use.   When presenting, contestants should address the following: , describe the data (time span of observations, number of observations, internal error, RMS per hour/night/week), why are the noteable qualities of these data? (e.g., precision improvements achieved over time? particularly  low RMS scatter? high precision? high cadence? long time baseline?)</li> , what are the biggest concerns about your data? , what telescope and spectrometer were used?, briefly describe the analysis procedure (wavelength calibration, cross-correlation, forward modeling?) , was any filtering used? trends removed? jitter subtracted? rejected outlier data? . What is required to reach 1 m/s Doppler precision?   What is required to reach 0.5 m/s? 0.1 m/s? , Is stellar noise a fundamental limit to RV precision? , What are the science frontiers in exoplanetary science? How does PRV contribute? , What are the  needs of the community (on a 10-year horizon)?  .

 LocationSanta Barbara, United States
 Organizer Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
 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.
