Distorted Astrophysical Discs: New Insights and Future Directions
18 May 2020 - 20 May 2020 • Cambridge, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge
Abstract:
We invite researchers working on non-axisymmetric distortions and warps in protoplanetary discs, galactic discs, discs in binaries (cataclysmic variables, etc.), circumbinary discs, debris discs around white dwarfs, planetary rings, tidal disruption events, etc. to gather for three days of focused discussion on the emerging puzzles and recent progress made in understanding such distortions.

Astronomy School 2020 — GROWTH Astronomy School on Multi-wavelength Followup of Transients
16 Aug 2020 - 18 Aug 2020 • Liverpool, United Kingdom
Abstract:
The school is designed to offer a comprehensive training to graduate and advanced undergraduate students in observational techniques and tools for follow up of transient events at X-ray, UV, optical, infrared and radio wavelengths. The school sessions are organized by wavelength range and the format includes a short lecture that introduces the topic followed by an interactive workshop where students will be engaged in data analysis using real data from the LIGO, Keck Observatory in Hawaii, Palomar Observatory in California, the VLA in New Mexico and telescopes in the GROWTH global network of observatories.

The Epoch of Galaxy Quenching: Understanding the Decline in Star Formation from Cosmic Noon to the Present
07 Sep 2020 - 11 Sep 2020 • Cambridge, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge, UK
Abstract:
The goal of this conference is to bring together an international community of researchers in observational and theoretical astrophysics, to work towards a solution to one of the most important problems in modern extra-galactic astronomy: why do galaxies stop forming stars?

Modeling, observing, and understanding flows and magnetic fields in the Earth's core and in the Sun
30 Nov 2020 - 04 Dec 2020 • Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge, United Kingdom
Organizer:
INI – Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
Like many other stars and planets, the Earth and the Sun possess magnetic fields built by dynamo action. Unlike the magnetism of most other astrophysical objects, though, the Solar and terrestrial fields have been closely studied for generations, yielding a wide variety of observational constraints that continue to challenge theory and defy prediction. Both analytical theory and numerical simulations have cumulatively yielded significant insight into how both objects build their magnetism, but a comprehensive understanding of this process has remained elusive. This meeting will aim to scrutinise and assess the results of such modelling efforts by comparison to the vast and ongoing array of observations of both the Earth and the Sun.
