Matera Oscura / Dark Matera - cosmology and dark matter with galaxies and clusters
02 Sep 2019 - 06 Sep 2019 • Matera, Italy
One of the most important and long-lasting challenges of modern astrophysics is understanding and unveiling the nature of dark matter. Despite the many uncertainties on its composition, dark matter is considered the main driver of large-scale structure formation in the Universe and, together with dark energy, accounts for 95 per cent of the total energy budget of the universe. The nature of dark matter and the standard LCDM models can be tested on many scales, from the shape of the cosmic web to the properties of galaxies and galaxy clusters, down to particle physics experiments aiming at detecting the dark matter particles. This conference aims at bringing together experts on galaxies, galaxy clusters, numerical simulations and observations, as well as dark matter detectors and alternative cosmological models. In this way, we hope to encourage stimulating and comprehensive discussions on the state of the art of dark matter models and boost research collaboration between different sides.

The Cosmic Baryon Cycle: Impact on Galaxy Evolution
19 Sep 2019 - 21 Sep 2019 • Omni La Costa Resort and Spa -- Carlsbad, CA, United States
The rich taxonomy of galaxies we observe today is understood to be regulated by two competing processes: accretion and feedback. Understanding the intricate exchange of regular matter between star-forming regions and the intergalactic space and its impact on subsequent galaxy growth remains a primary goal in astrophysics research. This meeting will bring together leading theorists and observers to discuss the latest progress in studying baryonic flows in and out of galaxies with an outlook towards key growth areas in the era of giant telescopes.

Gravitational Waves from the Early Universe
20 Sep 2019 • Stockholm, Sweden
Gravitational waves promise a new window into the highest-energy events in the evolution of the universe. The recent LIGO/Virgo detections of gravitational waves from the mergers of binary black holes and binary neutron stars and have ignited interest in the future direction of gravitational wave astronomy. A space-based laser interferometer, pioneered by NASA's LISA concept and the European Space Agency's eLISA program and ESA's recent spectacularly successful LISA Pathfinder mission, would enable direct detection of gravitational waves in the milliHertz range. A lower frequency range would allow detection of supermassive black hole mergers, tracing the galaxy merger history and serving as cosmic sirens to probe the universe's expansion history, as well as precursors for the LIGO sources. A space-based detector would also be sensitive to stochastic gravitational wave backgrounds produced by unknown physics operating in the very early universe, including an electroweak phase transition. This Nordita program will bring scientists together to engage in an effort to characterize and detect sources contributing to the gravitational wave background from the early universe, and the implications for new physics at the TeV scale and beyond.

Gravity2019 — The functioning of galaxies: challenges for Newtonian and Milgromian dynamics: A workshop at the University of Bonn
23 Sep 2019 - 27 Sep 2019 • Bonn, Germany
One of the greatest current unsolved problems in physics is whether gravity, which is the least understood of the fundamental "forces", is universally Newtonian in the classical limit. The nature of gravitation is even unclear, but whatever the physical origin of gravitation, the empirical formulation of how a body is accelerated as a result of the mass-distribution around it can be applied to study the formation and evolution of galaxies.

With this meeting we aim to foster a discussion between the scientists who have been studying galaxies and cosmology in the dark matter and Milgromian frameworks which constitute two fundamentally different hypotheses. The aim is to achieve an exchange notably also on the technical challenges in applying both hypothesis to computational astrophysics problems in view of recent advances in understanding stellar populations, which are important for quantifying feedback processes.

AstroRob 2019 — 6th Workshop on Robotic Autonomous Observatories
30 Sep 2019 - 04 Oct 2019 • Malaga, Spain
Ten years after the celebration of the First Workshop on robotic autonomous observatories in Málaga, the number of automatic astronomical facilities worldwide has significantly grown, as well as the level of robotisation, autonomy, and networking, with many recent developments motivated by the search of new electromagnetic counterparts to gravitational waves in the next months. This has a strong impact in many other astrophysical fields, like fireballs detection, minor planet studies, the search for extra-solar planets, the monitoring of variable stars in our Galaxy, the study of active galactic nuclei, the detection and monitoring of supernovae, and the immediate follow-up of high-energy transients such as cosmic gamma-ray bursts, besides the search of neutrino and gravitational waves electromagnetic counterparts. Last, but not least, space debris surveillance and tracking is another field of increasing interest. Educational aspects will be also covered.

Thus, the main focus of the workshop will be on the new and existing astronomical facilities whose goal is to observe a wide variety of astrophysical targets with no (or very little) human interaction. As in the past 10 years, we expect the workshop will continue as an international forum for researchers to summarize the most recent developments and ideas in the field, with a special emphasis given to the Technical and Scientific results obtained within the last two years and future developments, with specific sessions on Educational Activities and Space Surveillance and Tracking.

NuSYM2019 — 9th International Symposium on Nuclear Symmetry Energy
30 Sep 2019 - 04 Oct 2019 • Danang City, Vietnam
Following the tradition of the previous NuSYM symposia, NuSYM2019 is aimed to host synergies between the studies of nuclear structure, of nuclear reactions and of astrophysics, including new exciting ideas and all possible breakthroughs. The nuclear symmetry energy and its density dependence are known to govern to a large extent the physics of nuclear masses and radii, the collective excitations at moderate excitation energies, up to the dynamics and observables of the high-energy heavy-ion collisions that explore regimes characterized by higher densities and isospin asymmetry of nuclear matter, especially, with radioactive beams. Last but not least, the understanding of the density dependence of nuclear symmetry energy is of paramount importance in the context of the forefront research related to the astrophysical modelling of the stellar and explosive nucleosynthesis, of supernovae and kilonovae (first observed in the aftermath of GW170817), as well as of the properties of neutron stars and their mergers.

MIST2019 — Cosmic turbulence and magnetic fields : physics of baryonic matter across time and scales
04 Nov 2019 - 08 Nov 2019 • Cargese, France
Gravity drives the evolution of the universe, but the gas dissipative dynamics is a central, yet unsolved, issue in the theory of galaxy formation. Current theories succeed in reproducing the observed mass distribution of galaxies only by introducing powerful stellar and black hole feedback that alleviate the rapid gas cooling and condensation into stars. An emergent alternative is that a large fraction of the gas internal energy is stored in turbulent motions instead of being radiated away and lost. Turbulence however adds a huge level of complexity to the physics of baryonic matter because cosmic turbulence involves magnetic fields and the plasma nature of the gas and because it pervades all the thermal phases from the hottest at more than one million Kelvin to the coldest at about 10 Kelvin in which stars form. The prodigious development of new facilities on the observational side, and the fast increase of computing power on the modeling side are opening up the field, calling for new multi-disciplinary approaches. The meeting will gather astrophysicists, observers and theorists of the local and high-redshift universe, with experts of turbulence and plasma physics to trigger cross-pollination between research fields usually discussed separately.

ECLA2020 — European Conference on Laboratory Astrophysics ECLA 2020: Linking dust, ice and gas in space
19 Apr 2020 - 24 Apr 2020 • Anacapri, Capri Island, Italy
The interplay between ubiquitous dust, ice and gas in space knits an interesting tale from collapsing interstellar clouds to the formation of new stars, planets, moons and comets. Along this path, the formation of complex organic molecules necessary to construct the building blocks of life brings us a step closer to the understanding of the evolution of life. The advancement in the understanding of these vast intricacies of space lies in the development of varied laboratory techniques and astrophysical modelling in close connection with space exploration and astronomical observations. We are living a very exciting time at the interplay between current and future missions/facilities. Return of extra-terrestrial samples is one of the drivers of these missions (e.g. Hayabusa 2, OSIRIS-Rex) together with a more and more detailed exploration of the Solar System planets, moons and other bodies (e.g. Martian rovers ExoMars and Mars 2020, BepiColumbo for Mercury, the future JUICE and Europa Clipper missions for Jupiter and its moon Europa). From the astronomical side, new perspectives arise from progress in high angular resolution observations from the optical/infrared (VLT and the coming JWST and ELT) to the sub-mm/mm range (ALMA, NOEMA) to the mid-radio frequencies (SKA) together with a better coverage of the electromagnetic spectrum (e.g. ATHENA for X-rays) and the discovery of new exo-worlds (e.g. PLATO, ARIEL). The ECLA 2020 conference will provide the opportunity for interdisciplinary exchanges between scientists active in different research fields, which range from astronomy to geology and from chemistry to instrumentation. These interactions will foster collaborations that will result in better scientific exploitation of missions/facilities in planetology and astronomy in relation with the major questions on our origins.

CAFFELattes — Cosmological analyses featuring Galactic foreground emission
11 May 2020 - 15 May 2020 • Montpellier, France
The magnetized Galactic interstellar medium has become a main hindrance in the analysis of cosmological data. Galactic foregrounds are an issue in different observational contexts for the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), the HI 21cm signal from the epoch of reionization (EoR), line intensity mapping and lensing surveys. Galactic magnetic fields also upset the identification of sources of ultra-high energy cosmic rays and the measurement of extragalactic magnetic fields. In each context, cosmology is tied to Galactic astrophysics, and from a methodological point of view, to mathematics, because novel methods are required to model and reproduce the statistical properties of Galactic foregrounds and account for their complexity in the statistical inference of cosmological parameters. The meeting aims at bringing together scientists from Cosmology, Galactic Astrophysics and Mathematics for cross-fertilization. These three themes will be developed in parallel along the week in the context of CMB, large scale structure, EoR, cosmic magnetism and cosmic-ray science and experiments.

Planetary Science: The Young Solar System
06 Sep 2020 - 12 Sep 2020 • ICISE, Quy Nhon, Vietnam, Vietnam
For decades scientific researchers have wondered how the solar system formed and evolved. This active field of research is populated with cosmochemists, planetary scientists, geologists, geophysicists and astronomers, among others, who all try to unravel what happened over 4.5 billion years ago. Yet despite all these international efforts the nature of the formation and evolution of the young solar system and the proclivity of the terrestrial planets to support a (long-term) biosphere remains obscure. It makes sense at this time to synthesis what we know, highlight key points of agreement and contention, and to provide recommendations for scientific progress.

Multiwavelength Probes of Galactic Atmospheres
25 Jan 2021 - 28 Jan 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
The circumgalactic medium (CGM) can be viewed as an atmosphere that surrounds a galaxy and sustains star formation within it. Much of what we know about the CGM has come from absorption-line spectroscopy, mainly in the UV band, of gas at temperatures below the galaxy's virial temperature. A comparable amount of hotter gas, closer to the virial temperature, may also be present but has been harder to detect. If it is there, then the properties of the cooler clouds and the hotter ambient medium are likely to be complementary, deeply interwoven, and physically complex. It follows that the physics of cosmic rays, magnetic fields, turbulent mixing layers, conductive interfaces, and shocks may then play a leading role in setting the fate of the multiphase CGM. This conference will examine the evidence for a virial-temperature component along with the observations capable of revealing its properties and its relationship to the cooler components. Probes that complement UV absorption-line observations will be emphasized, including X-ray emission and absorption, UV and optical emission, Sunyaev-Zel'dovich probes, Fast Radio Bursts, and signposts of non-thermal particle acceleration.

White Dwarfs from Physics to Astrophysics
29 Mar 2021 - 01 Apr 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Astrometric, photometric and spectroscopic all-sky surveys provide the first complete, unbiased view of the Galactic population of the most abundant type of stellar remnants: white dwarfs. This wealth of observational data provides an array of opportunities to use white dwarfs as probes of a wide range of astrophysics, including the formation and evolution of stars and planets, the star formation rate of the Galaxy, and the populations of low-frequency gravitational wave sources and progenitors of thermonuclear supernovae. These applications require improved models of these electron-degenerate stars, which in turn rely on developments in the relevant input physics, including equations of state and opacities. This conference will provide a joint platform for experts in the observational and theoretical study of white dwarfs, scientists working on the underlying fundamental physics, and astronomers using white dwarfs as diagnostic tools to gain a panoramic overview of the state-of-the-art, to identify remaining limitations of the current models, and to explore novel scientific opportunities arising from the new data.
