This conference will deal with fundamental issues of planetary habitability, i.e. the environmental conditions capable of sustaining life, and how interactions between the interior of a planet or a moon and its atmosphere and surface (including hydrosphere and biosphere) affect the habitability of the celestial body.
A preliminary list of the topics to be developed during the Conference is given below: Nuclear double beta decays; Nuclear structure in connection with neutrino physics; Nuclear reactions as a probe for weak decays; Neutrino-nucleus interaction at low and high energy; Supernova models and detection of supernova neutrinos; Solar models and detection of solar neutrinos; Direct and indirect dark-matter searches; Rare beta decays of nuclei for neutrino-mass measurements; Neutrino oscillations and matter effects; Anomalies in reactor neutrinos; New related detection technologies
ALMA has been showing enormous, beautiful results over nearby solar objects including the Sun to high redshift galaxies since being commissioned in 2013. The EA community has been playing an important, significant role in such a productive activity. Along the great ALMA era, the EA Science Workshop has been providing the unique opportunities to share new scientific results and promote collaborations within the EA ALMA community. ALMA is still evolving: Solar observations and VLBI observations started last year, Band 5 to be added next March, circular polarization capability being tested, etc. Communicating and collaborating would be one of the best ways to utilize the evolving ALMA wisely. Since Cycle 4, ALMA offers large projects, so importance of collaboration between regions is larger than before. In addition, synergies of multi-wavelength and multi-scale observations are getting more important as well.
In light of these challenges, this workshop will bring together physicists, cosmologists, astronomers and philosophers for two days of invited and contributed talks. We invite talks on such topics as:
* the role of symmetries in fundamental laws of nature
* symmetry breaking in cosmology and particle physics
* cosmic and fundamental constants
* physical theories of the multiverse
* the role of probability theory in evaluating fine-tuning and naturalness
* the connection between life and our cosmic environment
* the broader implications of our place in the cosmos.
