MIST2019 — Cosmic turbulence and magnetic fields : physics of baryonic matter across time and scales
04 Nov 2019 - 08 Nov 2019 • Cargese, France
Abstract:
Gravity drives the evolution of the universe, but the gas dissipative dynamics is a central, yet unsolved, issue in the theory of galaxy formation. Current theories succeed in reproducing the observed mass distribution of galaxies only by introducing powerful stellar and black hole feedback that alleviate the rapid gas cooling and condensation into stars. An emergent alternative is that a large fraction of the gas internal energy is stored in turbulent motions instead of being radiated away and lost. Turbulence however adds a huge level of complexity to the physics of baryonic matter because cosmic turbulence involves magnetic fields and the plasma nature of the gas and because it pervades all the thermal phases from the hottest at more than one million Kelvin to the coldest at about 10 Kelvin in which stars form. The prodigious development of new facilities on the observational side, and the fast increase of computing power on the modeling side are opening up the field, calling for new multi-disciplinary approaches. The meeting will gather astrophysicists, observers and theorists of the local and high-redshift universe, with experts of turbulence and plasma physics to trigger cross-pollination between research fields usually discussed separately.

PARC — PHYSICS and ASTROPHYSICS of COSMIC RAYS
25 Nov 2019 - 30 Nov 2019 • Saint Michel l'Observatoire, France
Abstract:
The school offers a broad training program including: - the theoretical aspects of the acceleration and propagation of non-thermal particles, - direct and indirect measurements of cosmic rays, - the role of cosmic rays in astrophysics and its place in multi-messenger astronomy and the understanding of dark matter, - two practical sessions on propagation models and their comparison to direct measurements, and data analysis with the future Cherenkov Telescope Array.

The school is aimed primarily at students and young researchers wishing to build or perfect their knowledge of cosmic rays. Financial support is available for PhD students and CNRS staff can benefit from a support for the stay.

CoSyne — Cosmological Synergies in the upcoming decade
09 Dec 2019 - 12 Dec 2019 • Paris, France
Abstract:
The coming decade of astrophysics and cosmology will be driven by a large number of missions which will explore the cosmos observing the sky through e.g. electromagnetic waves, cosmic and gamma rays, gravitational waves and neutrinos. This will make possible a multi-messenger approach, capitalizing on multiple probes that capture phenomena of the Universe in different observational channels over a large range of redshifts and will open the opportunity to study the synergies between different experiments.

The conference will bring researchers working on theoretical aspects, statistical methods and observational cosmology and will discuss the new directions of fundamental physics and cosmological mysteries which can be addressed from these multi-messenger multi-frequency probes. Along with probing the fundamental aspect of gravity, nature of dark energy, properties of dark matter, primordial gravitational waves, neutrino masses and hierarchy, next-generation missions will also be powerful probes to learn about the astrophysical aspects such as the population of black holes, properties of first stars, reionization history of the Universe, galaxy evolution and the interplay between cosmological and astrophysical effects. The meeting will also discuss future statistical tools and machine learning techniques which will be required to make robust measurements from the data which will be available from the upcoming missions on astrophysical gravitational waves, cosmic microwave background, large scale structure, line intensity mapping, supernovae and many others.

Topics:
Cosmic microwave background, gravitational waves, large scale structure, line intensity mapping, standard candles.

CAFFELattes — Cosmological analyses featuring Galactic foreground emission
11 May 2020 - 15 May 2020 • Montpellier, France
Abstract:
The magnetized Galactic interstellar medium has become a main hindrance in the analysis of cosmological data. Galactic foregrounds are an issue in different observational contexts for the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), the HI 21cm signal from the epoch of reionization (EoR), line intensity mapping and lensing surveys. Galactic magnetic fields also upset the identification of sources of ultra-high energy cosmic rays and the measurement of extragalactic magnetic fields. In each context, cosmology is tied to Galactic astrophysics, and from a methodological point of view, to mathematics, because novel methods are required to model and reproduce the statistical properties of Galactic foregrounds and account for their complexity in the statistical inference of cosmological parameters. The meeting aims at bringing together scientists from Cosmology, Galactic Astrophysics and Mathematics for cross-fertilization. These three themes will be developed in parallel along the week in the context of CMB, large scale structure, EoR, cosmic magnetism and cosmic-ray science and experiments.
