Planetary Science Informatics and Data Analytics 2020 Conference
22 Jun 2020 - 24 Jun 2020 • Madrid, Spain
Organizer:
European Space Agency (esa)
Abstract:
Tremendous growth in data volume and complexity of data returned from planetary exploration coupled with new and emerging data science technologies are changing planetary science. From better calibrations to enhanced modelling to new methods for data management and discovery, informatics and data analytics are an increasingly important part of understanding and processing data from planetary missions. As a result, it is becoming increasingly important for the planetary science and data science communities to work together to research and develop applications of these technologies to support upcoming mission and science needs. The PSIDA conference provides a forum to discuss approaches, challenges, applications of informatics and data analytics technologies and capabilities in planetary science.

Origin, growth and feedback of black holes in dwarf galaxies
07 Sep 2020 - 11 Sep 2020 • San Sebastian, Spain
Abstract:
In this conference we plan to review the latest observational status concerning AGN in dwarfs, as well as to cover the prospects of other methods in identifying them, for example using dynamical measurements. Likewise, we will review and discuss theoretical models for the origin of black hole seeds, and how they might be a different population than that of black holes in normal galaxies, as well as models for the growth and feedback of such black holes onto the surrounding galaxy. Finally, we will discuss the fundamental properties of dwarfs as predicted by hierarchical galaxy formation in the LCDM model, paying attention to the interplay between galaxy and black hole growth modulated by feedback effects.
Topics:
Status of observations of AGN in dwarf galaxies (growth, variability, feedback), Theoretical models for black hole formation in dwarfs, Black hole seeds and dwarf connection

Galaxy evolution: from cosmic dawn to the Milky Way with the ESA Euclid mission and ESO telescopes
21 Sep 2020 - 25 Sep 2020 • Madrid, Spain
Organizer:
European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC)
Abstract:
Euclid is a high profile ESA mission to be launched mid 2022 aimed at characterizing with unprecedented accuracy the properties of Dark Energy by mapping the evolution of the large-scale structures of the Universe over the past 10 billions years. Euclid will have a major impact on galaxy formation from cosmic dawn to the present time. At lower redshift, Euclid will provide the equivalent of SDSS-quality images of redshift 0.1 galaxies out to redshift 0.7, for detailed morphological studies. Realizing the full potential of these programmes requires, however, follow-up spectroscopic observations of the photometrically selected samples. The workshop will address ESA/ESO synergies.

PNG2020 — A cosmic window to Fundamental Physics: Primordial Non-Gaussianity and beyond
21 Sep 2020 - 25 Sep 2020 • Madrid, Spain
Organizer:
Instituto de Física Teórica (UAM-CSIC)
Abstract:
The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts on the topic of Primordial Non-Gaussianities (PNG), with special focus on Large Scale Structure probes in the era of stage-IV experiments. We will also foster discussion about lightcone effects (aka GR effects), observational systematics, the role of upcoming CMB experiments, Gravitational Waves, Multitracers and about the origin of PNG.
