ID

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.

Conference on Enceladus and the Icy Moons of Saturn
ID
772730
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.

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.
