The Sagan Summer Workshops are aimed at advanced undergraduates, grad students, and postdocs, however all are welcome to attend. There is no registration fee for these workshops and the registration link will be available in February 2022.
The school will be devoted to the exogenous hypothesis leading to the origin of life. We will discuss how astronomy and theoretical and experimental astrochemistry act together to explore this hypothesis, and to go beyond our Solar System in the search for extraterrestrial life and other habitable planets.
This meeting is the 8th annual Community Science Meeting hosted by the Giant Magellan Telescope project and will take place August 31–September 2, 2022 at the Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock in Sedona, AZ.
The meeting is open to all with no registration fee. Partial travel reimbursement may be provided for graduate students and postdocs. The registration deadline is August 22, 2022, but there is a registration cap so don’t wait. Contributed talk abstracts are due by June 17.
This meeting has been designed to bring together a cross-disciplinary group on black hole research. Revolutionary strategies for studying Black Holes — from gravitational wave detection of merging black holes to imaging of event horizon scale regions. These discoveries have revolutionized the field while demonstrating how much remains to be learned about black hole demographics, formation and evolution, and interactions with their environment. This conference will focus on dynamics as a way to probe and learn about black holes across all mass scales, and topics will include the environment around Sgr A*, black hole mass measurements, demographics, rates for gravitational wave events, accretion disk dynamics around single and binary black holes, and tidal disruption events. Experts across this wide range of subfields will be brought together to canvass observational and theoretical progress, highlight key unanswered questions, and motivate future directions, particularly in the era of extremely large telescopes. The meeting program will encourage workshop-style discussion at a beautiful retreat in Sedona.
The Physics of Galaxies research group is a part of the Galaxies and Planetary Systems department of the Astronomical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences. Our studies use our own observations spanning radio, millimetre and optical wavelengths from the VLA, Arecibo, ALMA and various ESO telescopes, complemented with existing archival data. We also perform numerical N-body and hydrodynamical simulations using the facilities of the Astronomical Institute and on supercomputers elsewhere.
Students and young researchers will be encouraged to attend and interact with all participants, to present their work and broaden their horizons. Some financial help will be available for them upon request.
