Matera Oscura / Dark Matera - cosmology and dark matter with galaxies and clusters
02 Sep 2019 - 06 Sep 2019 • Matera, Italy
Abstract:
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.

ERICE 2019 - INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF NUCLEAR PHYSICS — 41st Course: Star Mergers, Gravitational Waves, Dark Matter and Neutrinos in Nuclear, Particle and Astro-Physics, and in Cosmology
16 Sep 2019 - 24 Sep 2019 • Erice, Trapani, Sicily, Italy
Abstract:
The purpose of the meeting is to bring together experts and young researchers in the areas of nuclear, particle and astro-physics as well as cosmology and the pertinent interrelations among these fields. The aim is to discuss the current status of the field and to explore future directions, both in experiment and theory. With the recent observation of gravitational-wave signals of black-hole and neutron-star mergers - for the latter in coincidence with electromagnetic signals -, the meeting is particularly timely. The aim is to cover a broad range of topics to elucidate synergies and identify areas of future progress. This should be especially beneficial to the younger participants of the meeting.
Topics:
Binary Star Mergers - the observations of gravitational waves, Binary Star Mergers – simulations, Binary Star Mergers – nucleosynthesis, Direct and indirect Dark Matter Searches, Axions - Dark Matter?, Dark Matter Searches at the LHC, Neutrino Mass from Tritium Decay, Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay (Majorana versus Dirac Neutrino), Neutrino Mass from electron Capture, Elastic Neutrino scattering – COHERENT, The Reactor Neutrino Spectrum Anomaly, Search for the Cosmic Neutrino Background, Neutrinos and Cosmology

Untangle the skein with Scarlet: LSST de-blending pipeline application
07 Oct 2019 - 09 Oct 2019 • Naples, Italy
Abstract:
One of the challenges of the LSST community is to optimize the scientific return of observations by preparing participants to source separation (i.e. de-blending) for different science cases. The purpose of the workshop is to study in detail the application of the Scarlet pipeline for de-blending sources in different astrophysical contexts of interest for the LSST community.

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
Abstract:
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.

ICSLS2020 — 25th InternationaI Conference on Spectral Line Shapes
22 Jun 2020 - 26 Jun 2020 • Caserta, Italy
Abstract:
The ICSLS (InternationaI Conference on Spectral Line Shapes) bi-annual conference series started in Paris, France in 1973, and it is held alternating European and North-American locations. The last three editions were held in Tullahoma, Tennessee, USA (2014), Torun, Poland (2016) and Dublin, Ireland (2018). The 25th ICSLS conference is organized by the Department of Mathematics and Physics, University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli. It will be held inside the wonderful Monumental Complex of Belvedere di San Leucio, in Caserta (Italy). Also known as Ferdinandopoli, its construction is due to king Ferdinand IV of Bourbon, who wished to create a small village around the silk factory, in the eighteenth century. The ICSLS 2020 conference covers a broad range of topics related to spectral line shape studies, including: line shapes of atomic and molecular transitions in neutral gaseous mixtures, fundamental metrology, single and multi-photoionisation processes, high and low temperature plasmas, clusters and helium droplets, nanophotonic processes, spectroscopy of stellar atmospheres and interstellar media, spectroscopy of planetary atmospheres and exoplanets, cold atoms and molecules, collision-induced spectra, processes in laser fields, innovative techniques of line shape applications for diagnostic purposes and fundamental studies with narrow optical resonances, along with applications in e.g., industrial, environmental, medical and all other potential domains of interest. The conference will include a mix of invited lectures, contributed talks and poster presentations.
