The early growth of supermassive black holes
02 Jul 2018 - 06 Jul 2018 • Sexten, Italy
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.

Einstein Equations: Physical and Mathematical Aspects of General Relativity
16 Jul 2018 - 20 Jul 2018 • Domodossola, Italy
The Theory of General Relativity is still inspiring incredibly deep investigations and guiding to breakthrough discoveries both in the mathematical and in the physical setting. The aim of the school is to provide a common ground to PhD students and young researchers in physics and mathematics to meet and learn different viewpoints on various aspects of Einstein equations. Lectures will be given by Alessandro CARLOTTO (ETH), Giancarlo CELLA (INFN - Pisa), Piotr CHRUSCIEL (University of Vienna), Felix FINSTER (Universität Regensburg), Alexander KAMENSHCHIK (Universit di Bologna), Eric POISSON (University of Guelph)

SIGRAV2018 — 23rd SIGRAV conference
09 Sep 2018 - 15 Sep 2018 • Santa Margherita di Pula (Cagliari), Italy
The 23rd edition of the conference will be dedicated to black holes. Einstein’s gravitational theory predicts the existence of black holes, objects so compact that light cannot escape their gravitational field. Several types of black hole may exist: mini black holes, stellar black holes, and supermassive black holes with millions of solar masses. Experimental evidence for the existence of stellar and supermassive black holes continues to mount, so what was once considered to be science fiction, has now become reality. In this conference, an overview on all aspects of black-hole physics will be given. In particular, we will discuss observations of black holes in galactic centres and in binary systems, the theory of accretion disks, the description of black holes in general relativity and in alternative theories of gravity, as well as the thermodynamics of black holes and Hawking radiation.

NOW 2018 — Neutrino Oscillation Workshop 2018
09 Sep 2018 - 16 Sep 2018 • Ostuni (Brindisi), 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. The structure of the Workshop includes five sessions, with plenary and parallel talks on several topics of current interest. The sessions for the NOW 2018 edition are: Session I - Oscillation parameters: present; Session II - Oscillation parameters: future; Session III - Multimessenger astrophysics; Session IV - Neutrino masses, states and interactions; Session V - Particle physics in the Cosmos.
