From Planck to the Future of CMB
23 May 2022 - 27 May 2022 • Ferrara, Italy
Abstract:
Planck‘s recent measurements of the temperature and polarization anisotropies of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) have established a cosmological framework that will remain the standard for many years to come. From space, the LiteBIRD mission will pick up on this legacy in the next decade, with the aim to improve dramatically on polarization observations at large angular scales. In a later time frame, ESA’s recently issued future scientific programme – Voyage 2050 – has highlighted the need for a large space mission to focus on high-precision spectroscopy of the CMB. And both ground-based and balloon-borne observatories are also expected in the coming years to improve significantly on Planck’s observations of the polarized anisotropies of the CMB, especially on smaller angular scales. In order to meet their ambitious objectives, all of these upcoming experiments will have to address and overcome very significant technical and data analysis challenges, some of which have already been revealed by Planck. It is therefore appropriate at this time to examine these challenges from the perspective of the experience accumulated by Planck in the design and operation of its instruments and in the preparation, conduct, and analysis of its all-sky surveys. In this context, the workshop is designed to bring together key members of the Planck and future experiment teams to foster discussion on some of the most challenging topics.

Reconstructing the Gravitational Hologram with Quantum Information
06 Jun 2022 - 15 Jul 2022 • GGI, Firenze, Italy
Organizer:
Galileo Galilei Institute
Abstract:
Maldacena’s 1997 discovery of gauge/gravity duality promised to provide a complete understanding of quantum effects in gravity, by relating gravitating quantum systems to conventional quantum field theories on fixed backgrounds. Although much has been learned, this initial promise has not been completely fulfilled, due to lingering questions associated with the basic dictionary describing the way observables are mapped between one description and the other. While the dictionary is under good control for observables near the boundary, and also at the level of perturbation theory about a classical bulk spacetime for observables further in, non-perturbative questions critical for a full resolution of the black hole information problem remain to be fully answered. 
 In the last few years, however, a number of developments arising from the application of quantum information theory to AdS/CFT seem to be indicating that it may now be possible to address some of these questions. This GGI workshop brings together experts and young researchers, in order to capitalize on these developments.

Abstract:
The goal of this meeting is to bring together theoreticians, modelers, and observers to discuss the computational astrophysics and observational challenges for the next generation of observatories, focusing on the next generation Very Large Array (ngVLA). The formation of planetary systems, the evolution of galaxies, and the observation of electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational wave events will be fertile grounds for discovery in the next decades and are core science goals for the ngVLA. The challenge to simulators is to develop predictive models that can be accurately compared against observations, while observers need to generate measurements that can effectively constrain the models.

AwRI2022 — Astronomy with Radioactive Isotopes
12 Jun 2022 - 17 Jun 2022 • Budapest, Hungary
Organizer:
Konkoly Observatory
Abstract:
Radioactive nuclei play a significant role in many current astrophysical pursuits, from the origin of the elements to the driving of emissions from supernovae (56Ni) and kilonovae (r-process radioactivity). Radioactive nuclei are crucial for direct studies of galactic enrichment (7Be, 26Al, 44Ti, 60Fe, 99Tc, 244Pu) and stellar explosions (56Ni, 44Ti). Stars and their explosions, galaxies and their evolving interstellar medium, and the origin of the solar system are among the targeted astrophysical objects. Stardust, meteorites, ocean floor deposits, cosmic-rays, and gamma-ray spectroscopy provide a rich variety of astronomy to exploit the inherent power of radioactivity. Investigation tools range from numerical models, astronomical instrumentation, and laboratory experiments to derive material compositions and nuclear reaction rates. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from all these different fields to promote interaction through the common ground of radioactivity.

AGNfeeds2 — MULTIPHASE AGN FEEDING & FEEDBACK II: Linking the Micro to Macro Scales in Galaxies, Groups, and Clusters
20 Jun 2022 - 24 Jun 2022 • Sesto/Sexten, Italy
Organizer:
Massimo Gaspari (INAF-OAS; Chair) | Francesco Tombesi (U. Rome) | Massimo Cappi (INAF-OAS)
Abstract:
In the last decade, increasingly strong efforts have been devoted to understand the role of active galactic nuclei (AGN) during the cosmic evolution of galaxies, groups and clusters of galaxies. Chandra, XMM-Newton, and Hitomi have unveiled spectacular interactions of the central supermassive black hole (SMBH) with the host atmosphere in the form of resolved X-ray cavities, shocks, metal uplifts, and turbulence. At the same time, the hot halos of galaxies, groups, and clusters recurrently condense in localized regions forming multiphase filaments and clouds that rain onto the central SMBH and that are detected via optical/IR/radio telescopes (e.g., HST, Magellan, VLT, IRAM, SOFIA). In the nuclear region, spectroscopical studies of AGN have discovered an amazing diversity of feeding and feedback phenomena, including ultrafast outflows, warm absorbers, massive ionized, neutral and molecular outflows. With the advent of next-generation telescopes (e.g., ALMA, MUSE, JWST, XARM, Athena, LOFAR/SKA), we are starting to learn that multiphase outflows are an ubiquitous phenomenon in cosmic structures of different masses and ages. Linking the macro to micro scales — and vice versa — of feeding and feedback processes is thus vital to advance our knowledge on the (co)evolution of black holes, galaxies, and clusters of galaxies.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together active researchers in the above tightly related — but often disjointed — fields in order to discuss the latest results, confront state-of-the-art simulations/models and observations, as well as promote new collaborations and set the path to future observational and numerical campaigns.

SETI Symposium — The First Penn State Extraterrestrial Intelligence Symposium
27 Jun 2022 - 30 Jun 2022 • University Park, United States
Organizer:
Presented by the Penn State Extraterrestrial Intelligence Center
Abstract:
The symposium will take an ecumenical view of SETI as the astronomical search for technosignatures, and as a subfield of astrobiology. It will encompass technosignatures across and beyond the electromagnetic spectrum, including (but not limited to) radio, microwave, optical, and NIR signals compressed in the time and frequency domains; multimessenger astronomy; megastructures in transit and thermal emission; and solar system SETI.

The symposium will lean heavily towards astronomical, observational programs that can detect or put quantitative upper limits on technosignatures, and theoretical work in direct support of such programs such as calculations of relative and absolute figures of merit of past and current programs, or target selection and observation strategy work. Abstracts on putting current efforts in a historical context, interfaces with the social sciences, the funding and cultural landscape of SETI, and curricular and academic dimensions of the field are also welcome.

From galaxies to cosmology with deep spectroscopic surveys -- A tribute to Olivier Le Fèvre
04 Jul 2022 - 08 Jul 2022 • Marseille, France
Abstract:
For four decades, wide and deep spectroscopic surveys have been a major tool for extragalactic studies. From precursor surveys with a few hundred galaxies (such as the CFRS in the 1990s) to current projects aimed at collecting several million z>1 redshifts (such as Euclid, PFS), several generations of increasingly deep and massive spectroscopic surveys have revolutionised our understanding of the universe. They have enabled detailed studies, on statistically significant samples, of galaxy evolution processes such as star formation, mass assembly, merging and interaction with the environment in a cosmological context. Advances in instrumentation have pushed observational limits, now allowing us to probe the epoch of reionization with unprecedented large samples of objects. With the current generation of large spectroscopic surveys about to begin, we are now entering the era of precision cosmology. These surveys will profoundly improve our understanding of dark matter, dark energy and of the detailed physics of galaxies in relation to their local (circumgalactic) and large-scale intergalactic environments. Olivier Le Fèvre has pioneered, led and tirelessly promoted several of the largest spectroscopic surveys to date. He has been at the forefront of these scientific topics for decades. This conference is a tribute to his legacy.

Organizer:
Asteroseismology in the Era of Surveys from Space and the Ground: Stars, Planets, and the Milky Way
Abstract:
Asteroseismology is a young and rapidly developing field in stellar astrophysics. It enables efficient probes of stellar interiors and provides critical input to many fields in contemporary astrophysics. Being very sensitive to the total time span and precision of individual stellar brightness measurements, observational asteroseismology has experienced significant boosts with the launch of space-missions such as CoRoT, Kepler/K2, and TESS. The interior macro- and micro-physics are being probed with unprecedented precision for isolated stars, as well as small- to intermediate-sized stellar populations across the entire HR-diagram. Powerful synergies between asteroseismology and fields such as binary stars, exoplanets, clusters, galactic archeology, are emerging fast. In this joint 6th/13th in a series of TASC/KASC workshops, we aim to put asteroseismology in a wider context, reaching out to other fields in astrophysics, focusing on the above synergies with specific attention to joint exploitation of large-scale space- and ground-based surveys. We will celebrate the 10th anniversary of “Kepler Asteroseismology in Action” started during KASC3 at Aarhus University, where Kepler asteroseismology was put into practice for the first time, opening a new horizon for observational asteroseismology as we know it today. KASC6/TASC13 will highlight the first results emerging from the full-sky, double-hemisphere TESS data exploration, in synergy with other and complementary large-scale surveys. The TASC6/KASC13 workshop will take place from 11-15 July 2022 at KU Leuven, Belgium - one of the most active asteroseismic centres in Europe - and the scientific programme covers a broad range of research topics.

COSPAR2022 B1.3 "Astrochemistry and Composition as Ariadne's Threads for Planet Formation"
16 Jul 2022 - 24 Jul 2022 • Hybrid from Athens, Greece
Abstract:
Understanding how planetary systems form is becoming an increasingly interdisciplinary field of study that is approaching the limits of insight being gained from individual disciplines. The composition of planetary bodies and the astrochemical processes that shape it represent the common thread helping us to navigate the multifaceted problem of planetary formation. Future studies will become even more interdependent and will require combining the information supplied by meteorites and polluted white dwarfs, the interstellar medium and protoplanetary disks, comets and asteroids, planetary surfaces and exoplanetary atmospheres, and more. This event aims to offer an interdisciplinary venue to bring together researchers studying the Solar System, exoplanets, star formation, protoplanetary disks, main sequence and evolved stars to combine the insights provided by their theoretical and experimental perspectives, as well as by observations from ground-based and space-borne facilities.

2022 Sagan Summer Workshop — Exoplanet Science in the Gaia Era
25 Jul 2022 - 29 Jul 2022 • California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA - hybrid, United States
Organizer:
Hosted by The NASA Exoplanet Science Institute, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA
Abstract:
The 2022 Sagan Summer Workshop will focus on the topic of exoplanet science in the Gaia era. The ESA Gaia mission has been mapping the Galaxy for over seven years, measuring very accurate positions and motions of over 1 billion stars. It has already greatly contributed to exoplanet science through the determination of more accurate stellar parameters, which in turn improve planet parameters, the detection of stellar companions, and the identification and characterization of young moving groups. In the near future, the unprecedented astrometric accuracy will result in the discovery of new exoplanets, as well as the characterization of known planets. The workshop will introduce the basics of astrometry, the impact of Gaia astrometry on astrophysics, and the astrometric detection and characterization of exoplanets. The synergy between the different planet detection techniques of astrometry, transits, radial velocities, and imaging will be discussed, as well as future advances in astrometry.

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.

IAU Symposium 370 — Winds of stars and exoplanets
08 Aug 2022 - 11 Aug 2022 • Busan, South Korea
Abstract:
Winds form an integral part of astronomy - from regulating rotation of stars through enriching galaxies with fresh materials, winds persist during the entire lives of stars and play a key role in shaping the observed exoplanet demographics. In order to gain insight in the physics and the modelling tools used by different communities, we wish to bring together researchers working on winds of close-in exoplanets (atmospheric escape), winds of low- and high-mass stars and the solar wind in a symposium dedicated to "winds". This will foster communication between these different communities and drive advances in the field.

IMPRS Summer School 2022 - Astronomy, astrochemistry & the origin of life
22 Aug 2022 - 26 Aug 2022 • Heidelberg, Germany
Organizer:
Max Planck Institute for Astronomy, Heidelberg
Abstract:
The Origin of Life on Earth is one of the most fascinating questions arising from the studies of our planet, and of the wider Universe. There are two main hypotheses describing the source of the organic compounds that could have served as the basis of abiogenesis: (1) the in situ synthesis of prebiotic molecules on the primitive Earth and (2) their formation in the Solar Nebula or in its parent molecular cloud, followed by their exogenous delivery onto Earth via asteroids, comets, and their smaller fragments.

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.

CSS 2022 — Cosmology on Small Scales 2022: Dark Energy and the Local Hubble Expansion Problem
21 Sep 2022 - 24 Sep 2022 • Prague, Czech Republic
Organizer:
Institute of Mathematics, Czech Academy of Sciences
Abstract:
One hundred years ago, Russian mathematician and physicist Alexander A. Friedmann applied the system of Einstein equations to the hypersphere with a time varying radius. In this way, he obtained a nonlinear ordinary differential equation which is called the Friedmann equation after him and serves now as a cornerstone of the standard cosmological model. Unfortunately, it is well known that this model exhibits a number of paradoxes. The main goal of the CSS 2022 conference is to discuss whether and how the Friedmann equation can be applied at various spatial scales, from our local cosmic neighborhood up to the whole Universe; and if the existence of dark matter and dark energy are merely artifacts of excessive extrapolations. So, it is timely to gather specialists from various branches of astronomy and astrophysics to discuss these issues.
Contact:
Email: dumin@sai.msu.ru
Topics:
Conference topics: Mathematical aspects of the extrapolations used in cosmology, Arguments for and against dark energy, and revisiting the foundations of physics, Alternative models for dark matter and dark energy, A systematic discord in the value of the Hubble constant derived by different methods, Theoretical possibility and observational evidence for small-scale cosmological effects, Quantum effects on the early Universe and their observational imprints at the present time.

From Clouds to Planets II: The Astrochemical Link
03 Oct 2022 - 07 Oct 2022 • Harnack Haus, Berlin, Germany
Abstract:
During the conference, we will make a journey through space and time, starting from interstellar clouds and then moving to cloud filaments and dense cores on the verge of star formation, to protostars and their embedded disks, to planet-forming disks to exoplanet and finally landing in our Solar System, while delving into laboratory facilities and theoretical calculations and simulations. Each evening, before dinner, there will be a general talk on each topic of the conference (the “aperitive talk”), to allow all communities to understand better the “big picture” and to facilitate finding links across disciplines, which always provide fertile ground in our journey towards understanding our astrochemical origins.

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.

Fermi 2022 — Tenth International Fermi Symposium
09 Oct 2022 - 15 Oct 2022 • Johannesburg, South Africa
Abstract:
The two Fermi instruments have been surveying the high-energy sky since August 2008. The Large Area Telescope (LAT) has discovered more than a thousand new sources and many new source classes, bringing the importance of gamma-ray astrophysics to an ever-broadening community. The LAT catalog includes supernova remnants, pulsar wind nebulae, pulsars, binary systems, novae, several classes of active galaxies, starburst galaxies, normal galaxies, and a large number of unidentified sources. Continuous monitoring of the high-energy gamma-ray sky has uncovered numerous outbursts from a wide range of transients. Fermi LAT's study of diffuse gamma-ray emission in our galaxy revealed giant bubbles shining in gamma rays. The direct measurement of a harder-than-expected cosmic-ray electron spectrum may imply the presence of nearby cosmic-ray accelerators. LAT data have provided stringent constraints on new phenomena such as supersymmetric dark-matter annihilations as well as tests of fundamental physics. The Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) continues to be a prolific detector of gamma-ray transients: magnetars, solar flares, terrestrial gamma-ray flashes and gamma-ray bursts at keV to MeV energies, complementing the higher energy LAT observations of those sources in addition to providing valuable science return in their own right.

White Dwarfs as Probes of the Evolution of Planets, Stars, the Milky Way and the Expanding Universe
17 Oct 2022 - 16 Dec 2022 • Santa Barbara, California, United States
Abstract:
This program is motivated by the recent observational insights concerning white dwarfs as individuals and as a population, based on the astrometry from Gaia and large photometric (Kepler, TESS, ZTF, VeraRubin) and spectroscopic (SDSS-V, DESI, WEAVE, 4MOST) surveys. Some of the questions that these data, combined with improved input physics and white dwarf models, will answer are: How does crystallization affect white dwarf cooling? How good is our understanding of convection, overshoot, and mixing in general? How good are the predictions of the low-frequency gravitational wave foreground and thermonuclear supernovae rates (SN Ia, Iax, Ca transients)? What is the nature of the recently discovered stellar remnants of thermonuclear supernova and/or their donors? What are the architectures of planetary systems that survive the metamorphosis of their host stars into white dwarfs, and what is their ultimate fate?

The fundamental role of stellar multiplicity in stellar dynamics and evolution
31 Oct 2022 - 25 Nov 2022 • Garching bei München, Germany
Organizer:
MIAPP - Munich Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics an institute of the Excellence Cluster ORIGINS
Abstract:
Our meeting intends to create a dialogue between observers, modelers and theoreticians to share problems, ideas and methods around stellar multiplicity and interaction. This is only one side of the coin: even if for some research fields stellar multiplicity is a given and well embedded in methods, its importance is controversial in other fields, despite observational and/or theoretical evidence. Our meeting also aims at addressing these controversies by providing a stage for the latest arguments, and a constructive environment for dialogue and fostering scientific collaboration.

White Dwarfs from Physics to Astrophysics
14 Nov 2022 - 17 Nov 2022 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
Astrometric, photometric and spectroscopic all-sky surveys provide the first complete, unbiased view of the Galactic population of the most abundant type of stellar remnants: white dwarfs. This wealth of observational data provides an array of opportunities to use white dwarfs as probes of a wide range of astrophysics, including the formation and evolution of stars and planets, the star formation rate of the Galaxy, and the populations of low-frequency gravitational wave sources and progenitors of thermonuclear supernovae. These applications require improved models of these electron-degenerate stars, which in turn rely on developments in the relevant input physics, including equations of state and opacities. This conference will provide a joint platform for experts in the observational and theoretical study of white dwarfs, scientists working on the underlying fundamental physics, and astronomers using white dwarfs as diagnostic tools to gain a panoramic overview of the state-of-the-art, to identify remaining limitations of the current models, and to explore novel scientific opportunities arising from the new data.

Bootstrapping Quantum Gravity
03 Jan 2023 - 24 Feb 2023 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
Abstract:
The AdS/CFT Correspondence, an enduring cornerstone of theoretical physics, turns 25 in November 2022. An outstanding problem in AdS/CFT is to understand the origins of the correspondence in the most fundamental terms possible. Harnessing substantial progress over the last several years in nonperturbative quantum and conformal field theory, this program will develop a constructive approach to the emergence of bulk spacetime in AdS/CFT, rooted in the rigorous modern language of conformal field theory and the conformal bootstrap. By leveraging a new generation of techniques, the program aims to constrain gravitational observables and to sharpen our understanding of the principles governing the quantum gravity landscape. The program will extend the horizons of the conformal bootstrap itself, by applying existing techniques to new holographic observables and by drawing lessons from non-bootstrap approaches.

Gravity from algebra: modern field theory methods for holography
23 Jan 2023 - 26 Jan 2023 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The last several years have seen rapid development of a new language for conformal field theory(CFT), including insights from the conformal bootstrap program. This conference will bring to bear the modern arsenal of conformal field theory on the foundations of holography and quantum gravity. A theme of the conference will be the extent to which consistency conditions on quantum gravity are inherited from those of CFT, and whether they naturally lead to string/M-theory. By bringing together scientists on both sides of holographic duality, we hope to explore these issues in a broad way.Topics to be covered include large N bootstrap and the structure of holographic CFTs dual to general relativity; CFT sum rules and gravitational effective field theory; aspects of supersymmetry in holography; low-dimensional holography, modularity and quantum chaos; black holes from strongly-coupled finite temperature physics; symmetry constraints on gravitational path integrals and AdS vacua; S-matrices, their relation to CFT correlators, and holography away from AdS.

The Co-evolution of the Cosmic Web and Galaxies across Cosmic Time
06 Feb 2023 - 09 Feb 2023 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The cosmic web of the matter distribution in the universe provides the framework for the formation and evolution of galaxies and is fundamental to connect galactic properties to cosmology. This conference will address the effects of the cosmic web upon galaxies and vice versa. The aim is to create both a broad-brush and then, for some aspects, a more detailed, early to late time joint history of the web and galaxies. Indeed, the web reflects what the universe is on intermediate scales, which are informative, both in terms of cosmic evolution and quantity of data. It acts as a dynamically relevant intermediate-density bridge (easier to model) between cosmology and galaxies. It is also the source of all anisotropy, critical for angular momentum acquisition, which is the number two parameter in galaxy formation.
