Quantum Aspects of Inflationary Cosmology
24 Jun 2024 - 19 Jul 2024 • Garching, Germany
Organizer:
MIAPbP - Munich Institute for Astro-, Particle and BioPhysics an institute of the Excellence Cluster ORIGINS
Abstract:
How did quantum fluctuations of the inflaton field provide the seeds for structure on cosmological scales? Did other fields play a role during inflation? How did their quantum fluctuations imprint on cosmological observables (e.g., non-Gaussianity) or survive as cosmological relics today (e.g., dark matter, matter/antimatter asymmetry)? How can these degrees of freedom be embedded into a compelling UV theory? By bringing together experts on particle physics and cosmology, we hope to develop a deeper understanding of these tough questions over the course of this 4-week MIAPbP meeting.

Workshop — Neutrino Frontiers
25 Jun 2024 - 19 Jul 2024 • Firenze , Italy
Organizer:
Galileo Galilei Institute
Abstract:
The neutrino oscillation discovery was a breakthrough with an impact in particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology. While most of the mixing parameters are precisely measured, key open questions remain including the neutrino absolute mass and mass ordering, the neutrino nature, the existence of CP violation in the lepton sector, of non-standard interactions and of sterile neutrinos. While the majority of the available oscillation results are understandable by considering three active neutrinos only, some anomalies are actively debated. In parallel with the progress in our knowledge of neutrino properties important advances were made in cosmology and astrophysics. Among the open problems is neutrino flavor evolution in dense astrophysical media. In particular, recent theoretical studies of dense weakly interacting many-body neutrino systems in astrophysical environments uncovered novel connections to other domains including quantum computing. Moreover, the observation of ultra-high energy neutrinos opened a new window in neutrino astronomy; while the discovery of the diffuse supernova neutrino background is expected in the foreseeable future. The goal of the workshop is to create a collaborative and brainstorming atmosphere around key open issues at the neutrino frontiers. Neutrino 2024 will take place just before the GGI program that will happen at a very timely period when running experiments might deliver first results. Crossing results from Earth experiments, astrophysics and cosmology will be a major tool to push forward progress on crucial open issues at the frontiers.

Multi-messenger Transients — Multi-messenger Transients from Binary Mergers & Stellar Explosions
04 Aug 2024 - 25 Aug 2024 • Aspen, Colorado, United States
Abstract:
The first joint gravitational wave and electromagnetic detection of the binary neutron star GW170817 marked the dawn of the multi-messenger era with GWs. This watershed event opened a new window to study phenomena such as heavy element nucleosynthesis, black hole formation, the Universe's expansion rate, the equation of state of dense matter, and the intricate dynamics of relativistic jets. These profound inquiries have reignited interest in investigating similar physical processes at play in black hole-neutron star mergers and core-collapse supernovae. This endeavor necessitates the development of predictive models in anticipation of forthcoming observations in 2024 by LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA, Rubin Observatory, and future observation campaigns, that will transform the field of high-energy astrophysics transients. The primary goal of this workshop is to bring together physicists with diverse backgrounds in both theoretical and observational expertise within the domains of electromagnetic, gravitational wave, and particle emissions. Collectively, they will engage in collaborative efforts to identify and investigate pathways for tackling the pivotal scientific questions at the core of this rapidly evolving field.

Rise_Time: Explosive Astrophysics in the era of High-Cadence Astronomy
07 Aug 2024 - 09 Aug 2024 • West Lafayette, Indiana, United States
Organizer:
Purdue University, Department of Physics and Astronomy
Abstract:
Time-domain astronomy is rapidly evolving, and astronomers have become increasingly good at catching fast transients on very short timescales. Additionally, both theorists and observers working on astrophysical transients have a habit of expanding their science across several subfields, resulting in a highly interconnected community. This motivates a continuous opening of new lines of communication between transient scientists, developed in a highly active and engaging conference setting. Rise_Time is a conference for transient astrophysicists of all kinds; theorists, observers, and numericists; experts on gravitational waves, radio, optical, IR, UV, X-Rays, gamma rays, cosmic rays, neturinos, and any other observing technologies we didn't think to mention. We aim to generate a highly diverse, inclusive, and interactive environment, with plenty of time and energy allocated for questions and interactive discussions. Attendees are encouraged to be participants rather than spectators.

The observations of first stars, galaxies, and black holes with JWST and other facilities provide a unique “stress test” for a new generation of theoretical models of galaxy formation. The aim of the conference is to bring together theorists and observers to discuss the following key questions: What can we learn from JWST data on the nature of the first stars and black hole seeds? What is the nature of the stellar populations inhabiting the first galaxies? What are the star formation and chemical enrichment histories of early galaxies? Do we understand the key physical processes that shape the evolution of these early galaxies and their black holes? How can we connect the pictures derived from near-field and deep field observations?

Galactic and extragalactic X-ray transients, theory and observational perspectives
09 Sep 2024 - 11 Sep 2024 • Warsaw, Poland
Organizer:
Centre for Theoretical Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland
Abstract:
Theoretical studies have shown that the multi-wavelength emission of the nuclei of active galaxies, stellar mass black hole and neutron star binaries is fueled by their accretion disks. The accretion process may be not stationary, and the accretion history as well as geometric structure of the infalling matter are not well understood. Importantly, the magnetic fields must play a key role in sustaining the accretion flows. While we have progressed in understanding many of these phenomena, there are recent observations and new models that drive our understanding in new directions. They are related either to the instabilities in the innermost part of the disk or to the sudden interaction of circumnuclear stars with the central black hole and the disk. Processes close to the black hole also allow testing of General Relativity in a strong field regime.

High-Energy Plasma Phenomena in Astrophysics
09 Sep 2024 - 20 Sep 2024 • Garching, Germany
Organizer:
MIAPbP - Munich Institute for Astro-, Particle and BioPhysics an institute of the Excellence Cluster ORIGINS
Abstract:
In recent years, spurred in large part by the development of first-principles numerical simulations, the plasma astrophysics community has made important strides in understanding the plasma processes relevant for astrophysical systems. The next step, which will be a key topic of the MIAPbP program, is to connect the rich plasma behavior to observed radiative phenomena. These phenomena include old puzzles, e.g. hard X-ray emission from accreting black holes, gamma-ray flares from blazars, cosmic ray acceleration, giant magnetar flares and GRBs. Plasma physics is also key to solving new puzzles such as the cosmological FRBs and gamma-rays from neutron star mergers. The role of plasma instabilities is especially prominent in transient phenomena and strong connections are emerging between plasma physics and time-domain astronomy, a quickly developing observational field. Plasma physics also plays an increasing role in multi-messenger astronomy where main targets are energetic compact objects capable of producing neutrinos, gravitational waves, and nonthermal radiation. The current efforts to understand plasma behavior lay the foundations for the future of high-energy astrophysics. Within a two-week MIAPbP program, we want to facilitate progress in this direction by bringing together both senior researchers as well as early-career scientists.

CSS2024 — Cosmology on Small Scales 2024: Local Hubble Expansion and Other Cosmological Puzzles
19 Sep 2024 - 21 Sep 2024 • Prague, Czech Republic
Organizer:
Institute of Mathematics, Czech Academy of Sciences
Abstract:
The concept of Hubble expansion is a cornerstone of modern cosmology starting from the early days of its development in the 1920's and 30's. However, one of the crucial issues - what is the spatial scale at which the Hubble expansion begins to operate - remains unclear till now. Moreover, this question became especially important in the last 25 years in the context of dark-energy-dominated cosmology: Since the dark energy is distributed perfectly uniformly everywhere, one can expect the cosmological effects even at very small (e.g., interplanetary) scales. To address the above-mentioned issues, a series of biannual conferences "Cosmology on Small Scales" was organized in 2016. These meetings gather not only specialists in theoretical and observational cosmology, but also mathematicians, geophysicists, planetologists, etc. to discuss the problem from various points of view. The upcoming 5th conference CSS 2024 will continue this tradition and is aimed at a presentation of the most recent theoretical ideas and observational findings.

The Second International Meeting on Eclipsing Binary Star Systems
28 Sep 2024 - 29 Sep 2024 • Weihai, ShanDong, China
Organizer:
BSN Project & Shandong University
Abstract:
The second international meeting of the BSN project will be held at Shandong University, Weihai, China from 27 to 30 (arrival to departure) of September 2024. This meeting is about observations and research in the field of eclipsing binary systems. The first meeting was held in November 2023 in Paris, France. The purpose of holding these meetings is to review the latest research and methods in the field. Many eclipsing binary systems have been investigated so far, but many unanswered questions and uncertainties still remain. Eclipsing binary systems include a wide range of other branches of stellar astronomy, such as systems that have planets or systems that have pulsating companions. At the same time, more modern methods regarding the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning are increasing in research in this field. Another goal of all BSN project meetings is to use the potential of amateur observers to help professional research. Amateur observers can play an important role in collecting photometric data of suitable quality for research in this field.

The BSN project, Shandong University and Shandong Astronomical Society will host and hold this meeting. The language of this meeting is ‘English’. The organizers could provide grants for limited requests to attend in-person.

21 Oct 2024 - 25 Oct 2024 • Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, Japan
Organizer:
This workshop will be held in collaboration between OIST and the MEXT-KAKENHI-Grant-in-Aid for Transformative Research Areas (A) funded “Extreme Universe (ExU)” consortium.
Abstract:
Theoretical physics is often divided into different fields such as particle physics, condensed matter theory, and gravity, depending on the length scale of the logical targets. However, by introducing ideas from quantum information science into the physics of quantum many-body systems, and via their deep connections to quantum gravity, it is becoming clear that what underlies many of these theories is actually the same. This workshop aims to explore the quantum information theoretic connections between these various fields. In particular, we will focus on connections among quantum information, quantum gravity, and both theoretical and experimental quantum matter.

CEP 2024 RR LYR — The RR Lyrae and Cepheid meeting 2024
23 Nov 2024 - 30 Nov 2024 • MARRAKECH, Morocco
Organizer:
Cadi Ayyad University (UCA), Marrakech 40000, Morocco .
Abstract:
Cepheids and RR Lyrae stars have played a historic role in the development of astronomy in a general sense. At the beginning of the 20th century, the famous period-luminosity relation played a fundamental role in the discovery of galaxies and the expansion of the universe. The study of the properties of Cepheids and RR Lyrae stars, which is highly interesting, allows us to understand the evolutionary structure of these classes of variable stars. On the other hand, it contributes significantly to the theory of stellar evolution.

ESI Workshop — Lensing and Wave Optics in Strong Gravity
09 Dec 2024 - 13 Dec 2024 • Vienna, Austria
Organizer:
Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematics and Physics (ESI)
Abstract:
Gravitational lensing represents a characteristic feature of astrophysical systems in strong gravitational fields, such as the supermassive black holes recently observed by the Event Horizon Telescope. On the other hand, strong gravitational fields are also being probed by the LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA observations of gravitational waves. With the rapidly increasing number of observed gravitational waves, it is expected that a small portion of these events will be gravitationally lensed. This workshop aims to bring together members of the astrophysical community working on lensing and wave effects in strong gravitational fields and to discuss physics relevant for both the Event Horizon Telescope and LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA observations. We plan to discuss the current open problems and perspectives in the field, facilitate the transfer of techniques between the much more mature field of lensing of electromagnetic waves towards novel studies in the lensing of gravitational waves, as well as to see how wave effects beyond the standard lensing approaches could be incorporated.

Generalized Symmetries: High-Energy, Condensed Matter and Mathematics
07 Apr 2025 - 10 Apr 2025 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
Abstract:
Over the past ten years tremendous progress has been achieved in quantum field theory thanks to the realization that symmetries can be interpreted in terms of the action of topological defects on the space of operators. This gives a generalization of the notion of symmetries, explicitly realized in many instances exploiting Lagrangian field theory techniques, uncovering a rich and unexpected landscape of physical effects in condensed matter, high energy physics, and quantum gravity. This conference will bring together the major experts in the subject, and strives to be an opportunity for participants to quickly get up to speed with the most recent advances and open problems in the field.

My Favourite Dark Matter Model
14 Apr 2025 - 17 Apr 2025 • Ponta Delgada, Portugal
Organizer:
University of the Azores
Abstract:
Dark matter is a long outstanding problem in modern astrophysics and one of the biggest mysteries physicists are currently struggling to understand. Its presence throughout the Universe is inferred by its gravitational effects on normal matter. Physicists have taken different paths to approach this problem. One of the leading lines of research is to look for new matter in the form of yet unknown particles. However, a promising avenue of research is to consider modifications of General Relativity, such as the presence of higher order curvature terms which seems to provide us with an elegant geometric interpretation of the dark matter problem. This workshop has the goal of bringing together researchers, both from theory and experiment, with different views on the dark matter issue, to be presented during the talks and discussed throughout the breaks. Hopefully we may all learn from each other and foster new ideas into understanding the perplexing nature of the dynamics of the Universe and of gravity itself.

Planets on the Edge
05 May 2025 - 08 May 2025 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
Abstract:
The Kepler and TESS missions, as well as ground-based telescopes, have discovered thousands of planets on short-period orbits around other stars, including many that are Earth-size and likely to be rocky. These objects have no direct counterparts in the Solar System, and the corresponding inner regions within the protoplanetary disks that spawned them are challenging to study. This conference will confront this challenge and advance our understanding of the nature, formation and evolution of Earth-sized planets in inner protoplanetary disks by bringing together diverse experts in exoplanet demographics, protoplanetary disks, models of disks and planet formation, and meteoritics to address four key questions: (1) what is the nature of close-in rocky planets and their atmospheres? (2) do they form in situ or migrate inwards after forming further out? (3) what are the governing parameters that could vary between star systems? and (4) why are there no analogous planets around the Sun? The conference will complement and energize the associated KITP Program by including a broader range of participants and highlighting recent observational results. The goals of the conference are to synthesize current knowledge of the properties of planets and inner disks, describe the state of the art in models of planet formation and evolution, catalyze interactions between different fields, and chart a path forward for advances in observations, theory, and computational modeling.

From Asymtptotic Symmetries to Flat Holography: Theoretical Aspects and Observable Consequences
19 May 2025 - 20 Jun 2025 • Firenze , Italy
Organizer:
Galileo Galilei Institute
Abstract:
Gravity and gauge theories share a rich infrared physics whose universal features manifest themselves in the context of asymptotic symmetries and their Noether charges. They clarify the soft factorization properties of scattering amplitudes, they play a role in the phenomenology of gravitational waves, and enter in the identification of new observable effects including gravitational and color memories. From the perspective of quantum gravity, they introduce new tools to understand the structure of the Hilbert space, and bring about a novel and promising approach to investigate a holographic principle for asymptotically flat spacetimes, currently pursued along two related lines: celestial and Carrollian holography. The latter exploits the Carroll structure at null infinity while the former takes advantage of powerful toolkit of conformal field theory. The vast majority of these developments have taken place in the last ten years and gave rise to research lines currently undergoing a fast growth. The proposed workshop aims at exploiting this rich and timely topic to bring together experts from all over the world, together with young researchers and students, with the goal to provide training, share results, build common grounds and foster new collaborations.
Topics:
Asymptotic symmetries; Celestial holography; Carroll physics and geometry; Twistor methods; Gravitational observables; Memory effects; Conformal colliders

New Physics from Galaxy Clustering at GGI
25 Aug 2025 - 03 Nov 2025 • Firenze , Italy
Organizer:
Galileo Galilei Institute
Abstract:
This workshop aims at catalyzing the joint efforts of particle physicists and cosmologists towards the exploration of new physics with large cosmological datasets. The workshop is structured to encompass three thematic weeks dedicated to model building and testing fundamental physics in cosmology, developing novel theoretical tools to search for new physics in cosmological observables, and discussing the potential of next generation experiments to probe the plethora of new physics signals. A symposium with summary talks will conclude the workshop. A concurrent school is planned, with the aim of addressing the evolving landscape of this new field and helping participants catch up with recent developments and novel tools. An important feature of the workshop is a designated focus week, devoted to the initiation of a much-needed community white paper, summarizing the new and well-motivated particle physics models that can be tested in cosmology in the light of upcoming data and planned future experiments. The workshop nicely aligns with the expected data releases from DESI and Euclid.
