The school will host 40 graduate students and young researchers from all over the globe, and is designed to be very interactive with ample time for questions and discussions. During the two weeks of the TSI, the afternoons will be dedicated to hands-on problem solving to help digest the content of the lectures. TSI 2017 is designed to be accessible to students working in nuclear physics and nuclear astrophysics, providing them with a solid foundation in modern methods and tools in all three areas of research, as well as our current understanding of the astrophysical events under study.
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.
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.
