JSI-GWPAW 2018 — Gravitational Wave Physics and Astronomy Workshop
01 Dec 2018 - 04 Dec 2018 • College Park, Maryland, United States
Abstract:
This workshop focuses on the detection of gravitational-wave signals and their interpretation in the context of astronomy and astrophysics. The detection of gravitational-wave events by LIGO and Virgo, and the promising future of further detections by an enlarged detector network as well as pulsar timing array campaigns and space-based GW detectors, opens new opportunities for understanding compact objects, stellar and galactic evolution, and cosmology. For JSI-GWPAW 2018, we are planning a program with ample time for discussion and interaction, covering many of the hottest current and future topics enabled by the detection and detailed study of gravitational waves together with astrophysical modeling and other astronomical observations. Talks will be carefully selected to stimulate discussion and ideas for collaboration, and the workshop will also include tutorials on using data from different gravitational-wave detection projects. Poster presentations are encouraged, and poster presenters will be able to give 2-minute "sparkler" talks to advertise their posters.

AstroData2020s
04 Dec 2018 • Caltech, Pasadena CA, United States
Abstract:
Aimed at facilitating community preparation for the 2020 Astronomy and Astrophysics Decadal Survey, this meeting will provide a forum for discussing the major science drivers in the next decade that will require an evolution in community access to computing, networking, and data archiving tools and facilities. In addition, we will bring together people involved in data creation, dissemination, and consumption to identify community needs surrounding astronomy data in the 2020s. The meeting is intended to lead to the formulation or coordination of white paper submissions to the Decadal Survey.

The CMB in HD: The Low-noise High-resolution Frontier
12 Dec 2018 • Flatiron Institute, NY, NY, United States
Abstract:
The CMB still contains a wealth of information about the cosmology and fundamental physics of our Universe. Unlocking all the information likely necessitates opening up a new window of CMB observations over a significant portion of the sky (~10%) that is of much lower noise (0.1 uK-arcmin) and higher resolution (10 to 20 arcsec) than previous CMB surveys. Such ultra-deep, high-resolution CMB measurements could potentially provide a novel way to map small scale dark matter, allowing, for example, a new probe of dark matter’s particle properties. They would also open a new window on galaxy cluster physics through the thermal and kinetic SZ effects and high-z cluster detection, and on extragalactic mm/submm source populations. In addition, such observations would push the boundaries of our knowledge about the early Universe, dark energy, reionization, and galaxy evolution. The aim of this workshop is to explore the science gain of and instrumental paths forward for such an ultra-deep, high-resolution CMB survey.

In the Balance: Stasis and Disequilibrium in the Milky Way
01 Apr 2019 - 05 Apr 2019 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
The past few years have seen a great deal of progress in understanding the formation and evolution of the Milky Way from the standpoint of numerical simulations and observations. These advances continue to shape our understanding of the Milky Way as a galaxy and as a laboratory for cosmological models of galaxy formation. It has become abundantly clear that non-equilibrium processes in the Milky Way such as satellite interactions, bar dynamics, and spiral structure effects have shaped the present-day structure and kinematics of the Galaxy significantly. The Gaia mission is making an unprecedented map of the distribution of stars in our Galaxy and combined with an array of massive spectroscopic surveys is providing a detailed view from the scale of individual star cluster to the global structure of the disk and halo. This conference will bring together experts in the fields of galactic dynamics, chemical evolution, and numerical galaxy formation to discuss new insights from Gaia and other ongoing surveys on the chemodynamical structure of the Milky Way’s disk, bulge, bar, and halo as well as the co-evolution of these components.

Planet-Star Connections in the Era of TESS and Gaia
20 May 2019 - 24 May 2019 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
Stellar properties and behavior play a key role in addressing many pressing questions in exoplanet science, from breaking the stellar activity barrier for radial velocity planets to understanding how stellar environments affect planet formation and habitability. TESS and Gaia are improving stellar characterization by orders of magnitude in precision and sample size. Addressing both observations and theory, the conference will focus on recent advances in translating this new knowledge of stars into detecting and characterizing exoplanets and understanding their formation, evolution, and habitability. Members of the stellar community will share the latest results in characterizing and understanding stars, and members of the planetary community will share applications of planet-star connections and emphasize what stellar knowledge is most important in addressing open questions in exoplanet science.

Tensions between the Early and the Late Universe
15 Jul 2019 - 17 Jul 2019 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
The standard cosmological model successfully describes observations from widely different epochs of the Universe, from primordial nucleosynthesis all the way to the present day. As the basic cosmological parameters of the model are being determined with increasing and unprecedented precision, it is not guaranteed that the same numerical values for the models’ parameters will continue to fit observations from widely different epochs. Discrepancies between observations at early and late cosmological time, if confirmed at high significance, would require an expansion of the standard model, and may perhaps lead to the discovery of new physics.

Inflationary Reheating Meets Particle Physics Frontier
03 Feb 2020 - 06 Feb 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
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.

Abstract:
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.
