Early Data Release and Scientific Exploitation of the J-PLUS Survey
02 Oct 2017 - 03 Oct 2017 • Teruel, Spain
Abstract:
The Javalambre-Photometric Local Universe Survey, J-PLUS, is an unprecedented photometric survey which will cover several thousands of square degrees of the northern sky and is currently being carried out at the Observatorio Astrofísico de Javalambre with T80Cam on the JAST/T80 telescope. By using a set of 12 broad, intermediate, and narrow band filters, J-PLUS will be a powerful 3D view of the nearby Universe that will characterise tens of millions of galaxies and stars of the Milky Way halo, with a wide range of astrophysical applications. So far, J-PLUS has observed more than 500 square degrees and part of this data (a few tens of square degrees with approximately 150,000 stars and 75,000 galaxies) will be made public to international community in September 2017. For this occasion, the J-PLUS team wishes to invite all interested scientists to Teruel for a two-days meeting. The goal of the event is to present the survey to the community, describe the potential and quality of the data, and discuss scientific cases and applications.

CNNP2017 — Conference on Neutrinos and Nuclear Physics
15 Oct 2017 - 21 Oct 2017 • Catania, Italy
Abstract:
The main objective of CNNP2017 is to promote a collaborative framework of researchers from the fields of nuclear, neutrino, astro and dark-matter physics, to discuss experiments and theories in which nuclear physics aspects are particularly relevant. At present, nuclear structure plays an ever growing role in the mentioned fields of fundamental physics, but still a lot needs to be done. The overlap between different communities is an unavoidable, despite demanding, feature in order to face several challenges of modern fundamental physics. The sharing of different experimental and theoretical techniques and the exchange of technical experiences and know-how are perhaps the best resource to build a unified view of the afore mentioned scientific problems. In this context, it is of utmost importance to allow people working at the intersections of these fields to meet regularly to exchange ideas and results. For this reason, the CNNP2017 aims at evolving in the long term into a periodic meeting.

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

QFC2017 — Quantum Gases, Fundamental Interactions, and Cosmology
25 Oct 2017 - 27 Oct 2017 • Pisa, Italy
Abstract:
Physics is living an era of unprecedented cross-fertilization among different areas. Concepts born in the realm of statistical mechanics and condensed matter physics,like spontaneous symmetry breaking, have fertilized the area of fundamental interactions for many decades; now concepts born in the context of quantum field theory are fertilizing condensed matter physics at various levels. The standard model of particle physics has led us to an almost complete view over fundamental interactions, in which the missing piece is represented by a renormalizable theory of quantum gravity. The Higgs phenomenon, with the associated electroweak phase transition, and the physics of strong interactions, with the associated confinement and deconfinement of quarks and gluons, represent the fundamental pillars over which a consistent description of the early stages of our Universe is built.

East Asia ALMA Science Workshop 2017 - Korea
27 Nov 2017 • Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute, Daeje, South Korea
Abstract:
The Korea ALMA group and the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI) are pleased to announce the East Asian (EA) ALMA Science Workshop 2017-Korea.

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.

A Fractured Universe? Fundamental Physics, Symmetry and Life
30 Nov 2017 - 01 Dec 2017 • Sydney, Australia
Abstract:
Our cosmos displays a curious mixture of symmetry and asymmetry. Why is it that some symmetries hold (electric charge, spin, mass-energy), some almost hold (baryon number, lepton number, parity, cosmic homogeneity), some are broken (chiral symmetry, electroweak gauge symmetry), and some don't hold at all (macroscopic time asymmetry)? Does the answer to these fundamental questions lie in their effect on the creation of observers like us? Or do symmetry principles, as John Wheeler argued, merely summarise while hiding the real machinery of nature?

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.

Exoplanets and Planet Formation
11 Dec 2017 - 15 Dec 2017 • Shang Hai, China
Abstract:
This international conference is devoted to the astrophysics of exoplanets. Among the more than 5000 exoplanets discovered so far are many extreme systems that are quite unlike our own Solar System. Understanding these exoplanets, in conjuction with Solar System planets and protoplanetary disks, can provide new insights into the structure, formation and evolution of planets and planetary systems.

Abstract:
Gravity@Malta2018 is the first in a series of conferences from the COST Action ''CA 16104 Gravitational waves, black holes and fundamental physics (GWverse)''. The consortium links three normally disjoint communities, namely Gravitational Wave detection and analysis, BH modeling (in both astrophysical and GR contexts), and strong-gravity tests of fundamental physics. The aim of the conference is to bring about discussion and collaboration between people working in these communities.

Water during planet formation and evolution
12 Feb 2018 - 16 Feb 2018 • Zurich, Switzerland
Abstract:
The workshop will focus on processes governing the delivery of water to planetary bodies in solar and exoplanetary systems, during their formation and long-term evolution. The respective roles of water (ice) inheritance from the interstellar medium, condensation in the protoplanetary nebula and processing and delivery during accretion will be discussed. We will further consider in detail the implications of the late-stage impact phase and long-term consequences for the remarkable diversity of processes affecting the water budget during the evolution of a planetary body. The goal of the workshop is to critically assess the interplay of theory and observations/experiments on the effects of water on planets and establish new research directions.

Merging giant-star asteroseismology with the fate of extrasolar planetary systems — an RAS Specialist Discussion Meeting
09 Mar 2018 • London, United Kingdom
Abstract:
Although stars spend a significant fraction of their lives on the main sequence, they undergo their most dramatic physical changes during post-main-sequence evolution. The fates of their daughter planetary systems may be similarly violent. Hence, the simultaneous study of both planets and stars along the latter's subgiant and giant-branch phases is capable of providing constraints on tidal, mass-loss and radiative processes, as well as invaluable insight into the processes of planet formation and evolution. During this RAS Specialist Discussion Meeting we will review our current understanding of the evolution and fate of extrasolar planetary systems during the subgiant and giant stellar evolutionary phases. By bringing together members of the leading UK exoplanets and asteroseismology communities, we expect to establish a roadmap for the effective and synergetic exploitation of the wealth of space-based data that will soon become available to both communities. In this regard, we highlight the upcoming NASA TESS and ESA CHEOPS satellites, both with launches scheduled for 2018, thus stressing the timeliness of this meeting.

Gaia Sprints — 2018 New York City Gaia Sprint
04 Jun 2018 - 08 Jun 2018 • New York City, United States
Abstract:
The idea behind the Sprints is to bring together people who have an interest in timely scientific investigation and use of the Gaia Data. These are not traditional scientific meetings; they are intended to facilitate completion of first scientific papers. The Sprints are structured to support collaborative refinement and execution of (fairly) mature scientific ideas. It is hoped that new partnerships will form and lead to co-authored publications for the scientific literature ready or near-ready by the end of each Sprint.
