RTSRE — Robotic Telescopes, Student Research and Education Conference
ID
878046
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.

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.

EPRV III — The Third Workshop on Extremely Precise Radial Velocities
ID
831695
Dates
07 Aug 2017 - 13 Aug 2017

Abstract
This workshop is for teams around the world to share techniques for advancing precise radial velocity work towards 10 cm/s precision in coming years. Building on the success of the first two workshops at Penn State in 2010 and Yale in 2015, the focus on this workshop will be on the performance of the next generation of precise Doppler instruments, including hardware, statistical techniques for signal extraction and interpretation, and stellar jitter modeling and mitigation.

Habitable Worlds 2017: A System Science Workshop
ID
847624
Start date
13 Nov 2017
Location
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.
