Inflationary Reheating Meets Particle Physics Frontier
03 Feb 2020 - 06 Feb 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
This conference will bring together experts in cosmology, particle physics, and fundamental theory to address how and when the universe thermalizes following inflation, and the associated particle physics and dark matter phenomenology. Important topics that will be covered include hidden sector model building in the LHC era, thermalization of the universe following inflation, possibilities of post-inflation cosmic history prior to nucleosynthesis, and associated experimental signatures. The conference aims to attract researchers in different areas to develop new directions in model building and establish new experimental paths for probing early universe cosmology and dark matter phenomenology.

Uncovering the Physics of Formation of Globular Clusters and their Host Galaxies
11 May 2020 - 14 May 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
This conference will synthesize recent observational discoveries of massive star clusters in nearby galaxies and the high-redshift universe. It will connect the observations to theoretical modeling of galaxy formation on large scales and star formation on small scales. The topics for discussion will include the efficiency of star cluster formation as a function of environment, and the origins of the cluster age and metallicity distributions. The meeting will aim to highlight the similarities and differences in star formation in low-redshift and high-redshift galaxies.

University of Arizona, Department of Astronomy
This is a special symposium in honor of Marc Aaronson, who was a postdoc at Steward Observatory starting in 1977 and an Associate Professor starting in 1983. His astronomical research focused on many of the most important problems of observational cosmology: the cosmic distance scale, the age of the Universe, the large-scale motion of matter, and the distribution of invisible mass in the Universe.

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.
