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.

International workshop on Axion physics and dark matter cosmology
20 Dec 2017 - 21 Dec 2017 • Osaka, Japan
Abstract:
The axion is an elegant solution to the strong CP problem in the standard theory of particle physics. At the same time the axion is a compelling candidate of the galactic dark matter along with SUSY WIMP. The main theme of this two-day workshop is to invite leading experimentalists and theorists in the field and closely related areas, and to activate lively discussions on the present status of research and future prospects. We welcome new innovative ideas to widen the horizon of the field. The workshop is open to experts and non-experts alike, in particular young people who wish to start their careers, although the workshop capacity is limited to 100 researchers due to the space of the workshop site.

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.

Abstract:
"Quarks-2018" is the jubilee twentieth in the series of seminars on high energy physics taking place biennially since 1980 in various historical and cultural places of Russia. Despite the Seminar's traditional name, the program of "Quarks-2018" is fairly broad, it includes plenary sessions, section meetings and informal discussions on physics beyond the Standard Model, cosmology and astroparticle physics, gravity, strong interactions, and other parts of modern high-energy physics. Besides, this year we expect heated discussions on selected topics, such as axion-like and ultra-light dark matter, astrophysics with gravitational waves, AdS/CFT phenomenology, anomalies in the LHC data, Lorentz and NEC violation, ghosts, etc.

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.

The early growth of supermassive black holes
02 Jul 2018 - 06 Jul 2018 • Sexten, Italy
Abstract:
Understanding the formation and growth of supermassive black holes (BHs) is subject to intense research. BHs of more than 1 billion solar masses already powered luminous quasars when the Universe was only 0.8 Gyr old, suggesting that they had to grow from seed BHs at z > 7 and grow very rapidly. The models proposed for the formation of BH seeds include the remnants of the first population of massive (Population III) stars, the direct collapse of primordial gas, or mergers in dense stellar clusters. Observationally, the detection of such high-redshift BHs constitutes a serious challenge.However, the leftovers of those seed BHs that did not grow into supermassive BHs can be found in the local Universe as intermediate-mass BHs of less than 1 million solar masses in e.g., dwarf galaxies, globular clusters, or ultraluminous X-ray sources, and can provide direct constraints on the seed BH formation models at z > 7. Intermediate-mass BHs also provide ample ground for studies of the low-mass end of the BH mass function, the behavior of the BH-galaxy scaling relations at low BH masses, the tidal disruption of stars, or the detection of gravitational waves.

This workshop aims at assembling theorists and observers to review the current status of models and observations and discuss the prospects of up-coming observatories for detecting seed BHs and discriminating between competing theories. The format of the workshop allows ample time for presentations and for interactive work among the participants.

HAMSYS 2018
03 Sep 2018 - 07 Sep 2018 • Centre de Recerca Matemàtica, Barcelona, Spain
Abstract:
The conference HAMSYS2018, continuation of the conference HAMSYS2014 celebrated inside the research program on Central Configurations, Periodic Orbits and Beyond in Celestial Mechanics. In 1991 started the series of the HAMSYS Symposia. These symposia brought together top researches from several countries, working mainly in Hamiltonian Systems and Celestial Mechanics, as well as many graduate students who had the opportunity to learn from and connect with the experts in the field. The VIII-th HAMSYS Symposium, denoted HAMSYS-2018, will take place at CRM (Centre de Recerca Matemàtica, at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona). The emphasis of the talks will be on Hamiltonian dynamics and its relationship to several aspects of mechanics, geometric mechanics, and dynamical systems in general.

IWARA2018 — 8th International Workshop on Astronomy and Relativistic Astrophysics
09 Sep 2018 - 15 Sep 2018 • Ollantaytambo, Sacred Valley, Peru
Abstract:
The intimate relationship between quarks and cosmos has motivated the organization of the series of international events known by the acronym IWARA – International Workshop on Astronomy and Relativistic Astrophysics. The event is the eighth in a series of meetings gathering scientists working on astronomy, astro-particle physics, cosmology, gravitation, general relativity, compact stars, high-energy physics, field theory, QCD, nuclear physics, and related topics. As in previous years, the IWARA 2018 meeting sessions will consist of invited and contributed talks, and poster sessions. The event is organized by Universidad Nacional de Ingenieria – UNI (Lima, Peru) and the Universidad Nacional de San Antonio Abad del Cusco - UNSAAC (Cusco, Peru).
