APEX2020 — Science with the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment
02 Feb 2020 - 05 Feb 2020 • Ringberg Castle, Germany
NUSTAR Annual Meeting 2020
02 Mar 2020 - 06 Mar 2020 • GSI, Darmstadt, Germany
NuSTAR (Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array)
Thermal infrared astronomy - past, present and future
30 Mar 2020 - 03 Apr 2020 • Garching, Munich, Germany
The Accelerating Universe: The Physics and Astrophysics of Dark Energy and Gravitation
04 May 2020 - 29 May 2020 • Munich, Germany
As general structure for the programme, we aim at discussing probes of cosmic expansion, tests of structure growth and at understanding the implications of combining them. Different competing theoretical scenarios, both of the “modified matter” and “modified gravity” kinds, will be compared against each another. Both the theoretical and experimental/observational viewpoints will be represented and discussed.
PLANET FORMATION: FROM DUST COAGULATION TO FINAL ORBITAL ASSEMBLY
01 Jun 2020 - 26 Jun 2020 • Garching, Germany
This programme will bring together experts with complementary expertise in observation, theory, solar system and extrasolar planets to assess the current status of planet formation models, highlight problems in each formation stage, and explore the possibility of developing comprehensive models that can be applied to different planetary systems.
Extragalactic jets on all scales - launching, propagation, termination
15 Jun 2020 - 19 Jun 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Max Planck Institute for Astronomy, Heidelberg
EPoS 2020 — The Early Phase Star Formation - Insights from Dynamics
12 Jul 2020 • MPG Conference Center Castle Ringberg, Tegernsee, Germany
27 Jul 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
NWCS20 — SIAM Conference on Nonlinear Waves and Coherent Structures
27 Jul 2020 - 30 Jul 2020 • Bremen, Germany
Theoretical aspects of applied mathematical research on nonlinear waves and coherent structures are relevant to subjects as diverse as general relativity, high-energy particle and plasma physics, fluid and solid mechanics, nonlinear electrical circuits, Bose-Einstein condensation, nonlinear optics, random media, atmosphere and ocean dynamics, chemical reactions, and biology. Remarkable agreement between theory and experiments can be claimed in many of these fields. The goals of the conference are to provide a forum for the development of mathematical methods and tools, to foster cross-fertilization among different fields of application, and most crucially to enable communication between the mathematicians who build the theory and the scientists who use it. The conference program will consist of presentations on subjects ranging from basic mathematical research to concrete applications.
EUROWD20: 22nd European Workshop on White Dwarfs
17 Aug 2020 • Tbingen, Germany
ESO-ESA JOINT 2020 SCIENCE WORKSHOP: NEW SCIENCE IN THE MULTI-MESSENGER ERA
14 Sep 2020 - 18 Sep 2020 • Garching, Munich, Germany
ESO – European Southern Observatory
Multi-messenger astronomy - the combination of electromagnetic light with gravitational waves or neutrinos - has come of age. The detection of gravitational waves and a kilonova from a merging neutron star binary, and the identification of a flaring blazar in coincidence with a high energy neutrino mark the beginning of an era where the detections of sources beyond the electromagnetic spectrum will become increasingly common. The facilities of both ESO and ESA are central to efforts to identify the counterparts of sources initially located by either gravitational wave or neutrino observatories, and have made pivotal contributions to these first steps into multi-messenger astronomy. This workshop will celebrate these contributions, summarize the results gathered during the third LIGO/VIRGO observing run, and explore the long term possibilities enabled by LISA, E-ELT, Athena and more.
From Clouds to Planets II: The Astrochemical Link
28 Sep 2020 - 02 Oct 2020 • 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.
MIAPP Workshop — Star-forming clumps and clustered starbursts across cosmic time
05 Oct 2020 - 30 Oct 2020 • Garching, Germany
NIAPP – Munich Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics
This program addresses the questions of how starbursting complexes, gaseous high-redshift clumps, giant molecular clouds, and young massive star clusters are formed, what are their physical properties, and what is their impact on galaxy evolution. Current observations and simulations allow us to directly compare how star formation proceeds at low and high redshift, down to the small spatial scales of star clusters.
