NOW 2020 — Neutrino Oscillation Workshop
06 Sep 2020 - 13 Sep 2020 • Ostuni, Brindisi, Italy
Organizer:
Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare and Departments of Physics of Bari and Lecce, Italy
Abstract:
NOW 2020 is the 11th workshop of a series started in 1998 in Amsterdam and held since 2000 in the Apulian region of Italy. The aim of the workshop is: to discuss Neutrino Oscillation Physics, in particular current experimental data and their theoretical interpretation; to outline future investigations of neutrino masses and mixings; and to explore the links with various research fields in Astroparticle Physics and Cosmology.

Padova2020 — Multiple stellar populations in the next decade
07 Sep 2020 - 11 Sep 2020 • Padova, Italy
Organizer:
Universita' di Padova
Abstract:
The discovery of multiple stellar populations in globular clusters (GCs) represents one of the most important results of the research in the field of stellar astrophysics. The last two decades witnessed a growing number of studies which, by reversing our vision of simple stellar systems compatible with an isochrone, unveiled the complex nature of the GCs . High-precision photometry color-magnitude diagrams revealed that GCs are composed of two or more discrete stellar groups with specific chemical compositions: one with abundances typical of halo field stars, the other(s) with enhanced light-elements as nitrogen and sodium. A sub-group of clusters also exhibits variations in heavy-elements and iron. Several scenarios of formation and evolution of multiple stellar populations have been proposed so far but none of them fulfills at once all the numerous observational constraints. Important questions, therefore, are still open: How did GCs form in the early Universe? What is their role in the assembly of the Galaxy? Did they significantly contribute to the reionization of the Universe? The aim of this conference is to connect observation and theory to review the state-of-the-art on multiple populations in GCs and discuss the developments of GC studies in the next future.

9th Microquasar Workshop: Celebrating over 50 years of discovery
21 Sep 2020 - 25 Sep 2020 • Cagliari, Italy
Organizer:
INAF-Observatory of Cagliari
Abstract:
"The 9th Microquasar Workshop: Celebrating over 50 years of discovery" will be held in Cagliari (Sardinia), Italy, on 21-25 September 2020. It is the ninth in a series of conferences mainly devoted to microquasars but also covering relativistic jet sources in a broader context. It will also be an occasion to celebrate the 50 years since the discovery of variable radio emission from X-ray binaries. The workshop aims to present and discuss the latest results related to X-ray binaries, in particular accretion/ejection physics (multi-wavelength observations and theory/simulations), the properties, mechanisms and interplays of the accretion disk, disk winds, jets, accretion/ejection at all scales, and comparison with the various accretions (BH, NS, CV). The formation, evolution and merging of compact objects in binaries will also be addressed. In the context of recent missions devoted to transient sources, new facilities will be discussed (such as NICER, HXMT, MeerKAT, ASKAP, etc), in addition to new tools and diagnostics based on X-ray timing.

NovA2020 — The astrophysics of Classical Novae at the dawn of the new decade
05 Oct 2020 - 09 Oct 2020 • Naples, Italy
Organizer:
INAF - Osservatorio Astronomico di Capodimonte
Abstract:
This conference will cover all the topics related to the classical nova phenomenology and related systems, and will include a series of lecture-style talks held by experts in the respective fields anticipating the main conference. The reason for this structure consists in providing to all the attending researcher the right tools and background to follow the multi-disciplinary approach to the phenomenology of nova systems.
