Astronomy from the Moon: the next decades
18 Mar 2020 - 19 Mar 2020 • London, United Kingdom
The Royal Society
Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Joseph Silk FRS, Professor John Zarnecki, Professor Ian Crawford and Dr Martin Elvis. Low-frequency radio astronomy from the radio-shielded lunar far side can have a unique science impact on cosmology potentially at modest cost. The permanently shadowed lunar craters may offer advantages for passive cooling of infrared telescopes. This meeting will examine these and other potential uses of the Moon as a platform for astronomical observations and the policy implications. Attendance is free but advance registration is essential.

Distorted Astrophysical Discs: New Insights and Future Directions
18 May 2020 - 20 May 2020 • Cambridge, United Kingdom
Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge
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.

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
Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge, UK
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?
