MARLAM 6 — Mid-Atlantic Radio-Loud AGN Meeting 2018
25 Oct 2018 • Baltimore, MD, United States
MARLAM is intended to serve as an annual meetings of researchers and students working on RL AGN in the Mid-Atlantic area (e.g., within driving distance of Baltimore/Washington, DC), with hosting location rotating through local institutions. This one-day meeting will feature talks on the latest research and discoveries in RL AGN and related topics, in order to foster a greater contact in the local community and give opportunity to scientists working on RL AGN to give a more informal and informative talk on their research than might be possible at larger meetings. Note: although a regional meeting, anyone interested in RL AGN is welcome to attend. This is a FREE meeting. More information at the website link.

In the Balance: Stasis and Disequilibrium in the Milky Way
01 Apr 2019 - 05 Apr 2019 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
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
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
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.

This conference will highlight the recent achievements and challenges in understanding nonlinear multiscale phenomena in astrophysical plasmas, bringing together theorists, simulators and observers who work on both astrophysical and space plasmas. The subjects will include the microphysics of shock acceleration and long range cosmic ray feedback in galaxies, the properties of reconnection in astrophysical and space plasmas, including its effect on particle acceleration, and the physics of turbulent cascades in magnetized plasmas of galaxy clusters and accretion disks.

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.
