IMPRS Summer School 2022 - Astronomy, astrochemistry & the origin of life
22 Aug 2022 - 26 Aug 2022 • Heidelberg, Germany
Max Planck Institute for Astronomy, Heidelberg
The Origin of Life on Earth is one of the most fascinating questions arising from the studies of our planet, and of the wider Universe. There are two main hypotheses describing the source of the organic compounds that could have served as the basis of abiogenesis: (1) the in situ synthesis of prebiotic molecules on the primitive Earth and (2) their formation in the Solar Nebula or in its parent molecular cloud, followed by their exogenous delivery onto Earth via asteroids, comets, and their smaller fragments.

The school will be devoted to the exogenous hypothesis leading to the origin of life. We will discuss how astronomy and theoretical and experimental astrochemistry act together to explore this hypothesis, and to go beyond our Solar System in the search for extraterrestrial life and other habitable planets.

Thinkshop 2022: High-resolution spectroscopy for exoplanet atmospheres and biomarkers
07 Sep 2022 - 09 Sep 2022 • Potsdam, Germany
Leibnitz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP)
The AIP aims to bring together the astrophysics community to discuss exoplanet atmospheres in high spectral resolution in its Thinkshop series. We therefore invite scientists to come to Potsdam to discuss the latest techniques for observations, their analysis, and the next-generation instruments in September 2022.

From Clouds to Planets II: The Astrochemical Link
03 Oct 2022 - 07 Oct 2022 • Harnack Haus, Berlin, Germany
During the conference, we will make a journey through space and time, starting from interstellar clouds and then moving to cloud filaments and dense cores on the verge of star formation, to protostars and their embedded disks, to planet-forming disks to exoplanet and finally landing in our Solar System, while delving into laboratory facilities and theoretical calculations and simulations. Each evening, before dinner, there will be a general talk on each topic of the conference (the “aperitive talk”), to allow all communities to understand better the “big picture” and to facilitate finding links across disciplines, which always provide fertile ground in our journey towards understanding our astrochemical origins.

Students and young researchers will be encouraged to attend and interact with all participants, to present their work and broaden their horizons. Some financial help will be available for them upon request.

The fundamental role of stellar multiplicity in stellar dynamics and evolution
31 Oct 2022 - 25 Nov 2022 • Garching bei München, Germany
MIAPP - Munich Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics an institute of the Excellence Cluster ORIGINS
Our meeting intends to create a dialogue between observers, modelers and theoreticians to share problems, ideas and methods around stellar multiplicity and interaction. This is only one side of the coin: even if for some research fields stellar multiplicity is a given and well embedded in methods, its importance is controversial in other fields, despite observational and/or theoretical evidence. Our meeting also aims at addressing these controversies by providing a stage for the latest arguments, and a constructive environment for dialogue and fostering scientific collaboration.
