Mapping the X-ray Sky with SRG: First Results from eROSITA and ART-XC
16 Mar 2020 - 20 Mar 2020 • Research Campus Garching, Germany
Abstract:
In little more than half a century, X-ray astronomy has established itself as a fundamental domain of observational astrophysics. X-rays probe the hot and energetic components of the Universe, encompassing, among others, the million degree coronae of stars, the remnants of supernovae, the ultra-dense matter in neutron stars, the immediate surroundings of black holes, the plasma filling galaxy clusters – the most massive objects in the Universe. Successfully launched in July 2019, after more than a decade of development, the Russian-German Spectrum-RG (SRG) mission will contribute to the X-ray exploration of the Universe by performing eight all-sky surveys, each lasting half a year, with its two scientific instruments: eROSITA, the German-built telescope array operating between ~0.3-8 keV, and ART-XC, the Russian-built hard-X-ray focusing telescope array, operating between ~3-30 keV.

The Accelerating Universe: The Physics and Astrophysics of Dark Energy and Gravitation
04 May 2020 - 29 May 2020 • Munich, Germany
Abstract:
As general structure for the programme, we aim at discussing probes of cosmic expansion, tests of structure growth and at understanding the implications of combining them. Different competing theoretical scenarios, both of the “modified matter” and “modified gravity” kinds, will be compared against each another. Both the theoretical and experimental/observational viewpoints will be represented and discussed.

17th AIP Thinkshop on "Protoplanetary Disk Chemodynamics"
11 May 2020 - 15 May 2020 • Potsdam, Germany
Organizer:
Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP)
Abstract:
Protoplanetary disk dynamics are crucial in defining the ecosystem for planet formation. The shift away from turbulence as the main agent for driving disk evolution towards disk winds has recently gained momentum in the community. At the same time, both the absence of significant levels of turbulence and the presence of large-scale outflows are gaining observational support. Yet, we are still lacking clear diagnostics for magnetic fields during the T Tauri phase. The task of extracting useful knowledge about the conditions in planet-forming disks, for instance from molecular-line ALMA data, is paramount. It demands an approach based on forward modelling combined with synthetic observation to understand the relevant dynamical and chemical processes shaping the detected emission features. Highlighting recent developments, we aim to orient the workshop around this chemo-dynamical link with a special focus on the potential role played by magnetic fields.

PLANET FORMATION: FROM DUST COAGULATION TO FINAL ORBITAL ASSEMBLY
01 Jun 2020 - 26 Jun 2020 • Garching, Germany
Abstract:
This programme will bring together experts with complementary expertise in observation, theory, solar system and extrasolar planets to assess the current status of planet formation models, highlight problems in each formation stage, and explore the possibility of developing comprehensive models that can be applied to different planetary systems.

NWCS20 — SIAM Conference on Nonlinear Waves and Coherent Structures
27 Jul 2020 - 30 Jul 2020 • Bremen, Germany
Abstract:
Theoretical aspects of applied mathematical research on nonlinear waves and coherent structures are relevant to subjects as diverse as general relativity, high-energy particle and plasma physics, fluid and solid mechanics, nonlinear electrical circuits, Bose-Einstein condensation, nonlinear optics, random media, atmosphere and ocean dynamics, chemical reactions, and biology. Remarkable agreement between theory and experiments can be claimed in many of these fields. The goals of the conference are to provide a forum for the development of mathematical methods and tools, to foster cross-fertilization among different fields of application, and most crucially to enable communication between the mathematicians who build the theory and the scientists who use it. The conference program will consist of presentations on subjects ranging from basic mathematical research to concrete applications.

ESO-ESA JOINT 2020 SCIENCE WORKSHOP: NEW SCIENCE IN THE MULTI-MESSENGER ERA
14 Sep 2020 - 18 Sep 2020 • Garching, Munich, Germany
Organizer:
ESO – European Southern Observatory
Abstract:
Multi-messenger astronomy - the combination of electromagnetic light with gravitational waves or neutrinos - has come of age. The detection of gravitational waves and a kilonova from a merging neutron star binary, and the identification of a flaring blazar in coincidence with a high energy neutrino mark the beginning of an era where the detections of sources beyond the electromagnetic spectrum will become increasingly common. The facilities of both ESO and ESA are central to efforts to identify the counterparts of sources initially located by either gravitational wave or neutrino observatories, and have made pivotal contributions to these first steps into multi-messenger astronomy. This workshop will celebrate these contributions, summarize the results gathered during the third LIGO/VIRGO observing run, and explore the long term possibilities enabled by LISA, E-ELT, Athena and more.

From Clouds to Planets II: The Astrochemical Link
28 Sep 2020 - 02 Oct 2020 • Berlin, Germany
Abstract:
During the conference, we will make a journey through space and time, starting from interstellar clouds and then moving to cloud filaments and dense cores on the verge of star formation, to protostars and their embedded disks, to planet-forming disks to exoplanet and finally landing in our Solar System, while delving into laboratory facilities and theoretical calculations and simulations. Each evening, before dinner, there will be a general talk on each topic of the conference (the “aperitive talk”), to allow all communities to understand better the “big picture” and to facilitate finding links across disciplines, which always provide fertile ground in our journey towards understanding our astrochemical origins.

MIAPP Workshop — Star-forming clumps and clustered starbursts across cosmic time
05 Oct 2020 - 30 Oct 2020 • Garching, Germany
Organizer:
NIAPP – Munich Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics
Abstract:
This program addresses the questions of how starbursting complexes, gaseous high-redshift clumps, giant molecular clouds, and young massive star clusters are formed, what are their physical properties, and what is their impact on galaxy evolution. Current observations and simulations allow us to directly compare how star formation proceeds at low and high redshift, down to the small spatial scales of star clusters.
