GRAVITEX 2020 — International Conference on Gravitation: Theory and Experiment
03 Aug 2020 - 08 Aug 2020 • Durban, South Africa
Organizer:
Astrophysics Research Centre, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, South Africa
Abstract:
Slightly over 100 years has passed since Einstein formulated the field equations of General Relativity, revealing a purely classical nonlinear theory of great mathematical richness and profound physical consequences. Nevertheless despite much effort and progress, understanding gravity remains elusive. On the theoretical front, a satisfactory quantum theory of gravity is still lacking, and although great progress has been made in testing the Einstein theory experimentally, we are not sure that its extrapolation to very small and very large scales is the last word. Attempts to incorporate and constrain “modified gravity” in cosmology, with a view toward explaining dark energy and dark matter, has been a very active area of theoretical inquiry. Moreover, by exploiting gravitational lensing, we are able to probe the distribution of mass in the universe directly. On the experimental front, decades of effort to develop gravitational wave detectors capable of detecting the gravitational waves from the coalescence of black holes and neutron star mergers have come to fruition with a first detection, and the years ahead promise to bring us rich data sets, allowing for precise tests of theoretical predictions of gravity in the strong-field regime. This event will include two components held in parallel: a conference, more aimed at specialists from Africa and around the world; and a school designed to present young African researchers with an overview of these exciting developments.

PROBING ENERGY EXTRACTION FROM SUPERMASSIVE BLACK HOLES
15 Aug 2020 - 22 Aug 2020 • Sydney, Australia
Abstract:
Powered by accretion onto super­massive black holes (SMBH), Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) jets represent the extreme and largest members of a wide family of jet­-powered phenomena including gamma-­ray bursts, X-­ray binaries, young stellar objects, etc.. The beamed radiation from the jets pierces through the Universe and reaches us from billions of years in the past offering a unique opportunity to study the Universe when it was an order of magnitude younger than today. Understanding the micro­- and macro­-physics of jet ­launching and particle acceleration is one of the fundamental goals of modern astrophysics. This session focuses on how SMBHs generate ultra­-relativistic jets and powerful gamma­-ray emission, including various aspects of SMBH lives including accretion, launching, collimation and termination of relativistic jets, AGN feedback, high-energy acceleration and emission processes, and key advances in both theory and observations. Contributions are invited to review theoretical and observation advances, including observing strategies for future missions (SKA, JWST, IXPE, AMEGO, CTA, LISA, LSST, etc.).

SFDE2020 — Star formation in different environments 2020
24 Aug 2020 - 28 Aug 2020 • Quy Nhon, Vietnam
Organizer:
ICISE, Quy Nhon, Vietnam
Abstract:
To continue the SFDE series that were organized in 2016 and 2017 held in ICISE, Quy Nhon, Vietnam, we will get together again in 24-28 August 2020 to discuss the recent progress in star formation. From 22-23, there will be a bootcamp for young students. The conference will highlight the recent advances in all directions in observations, numerical simulations, and theory of star formation in different environments, from individual star to galaxy systems. The idea is to search for a universal picture of star formation across all scales and also identify the characteristics of each individual scale. The conference will cover all aspects of star formation, including core-collapse, turbulence, chemistry, magnetic field, filaments, converging flows and cloud-cloud-collision.

The goal of the conference is to share the different views from different research communities by balancing contributions from different categories and to encourage collaborations between researchers across the Globe. Ample time is set aside to encourage discussions and collaboration. The meeting consists of invited reviews, invited talks, contributed talks, and posters. The conference also aims at fostering close collaboration via smaller size focus group discussion and excursion. There is also a bootcamp training school prior to the conference for local students.

AKAG2020 — Entscheidende Ereignisse/Entdeckungen für innovative Entwicklungen in der Astronomie
30 Aug 2020 - 31 Aug 2020 • Berlin, Germany
Organizer:
Arbeitskreis Astronomiegeschichte in der Astronomischen Gesellschaft
Abstract:
In der Geschichte der Wissenschaften allgemein sowie in der Astronomiegeschichte speziell gab es zu allen Zeiten und gibt es bis heute Entdeckungen und Erfindungen, die richtungsweisenden Charakter für den weiteren Verlauf der Forschung besaßen bzw. besitzen. Das meint sowohl unerwartet auftretende neue Phänomene und systematisch angestellte Beobachtungen am Himmel als auch theoretische Ansätze sowie technische Neuerungen. Dabei ging es den Astronomen und den Instrumentenbauern um die gezielte Suche nach Erklärung eines Phänomens oder um die Bestätigung einer Theorie, aber es konnten auch durch Zufall neue Phänomene erst entdeckt werden, die dann einer Erklärung harrten und eine neue Theorie oder einen neuen Instrumentenkomplex provozierten. In der Wissenschaftsgeschichtsforschung spricht man dann von den Entscheidungen für Alternativen (Bifurkationen) oder im Falle der Falsifizierung einer Theorie von einem Experimentum crucis. Solche Marksteine in der Geschichte der Astronomie sind exemplarisch die bekannten Beispiele der Erstveröffentlichung des heliozentrischen Weltbildes im Jahr 1543, die Erfindung des Fernrohrs (1609) oder die Entdeckung der 3-Kelvin-Strahlung (1965), aber auch zahlreiche weniger im öffentlichen Bewußtsein seiende wie z.B. die Erscheinung und Beobachtung der Supernova von 1572, die Erfindung des Mikrometers mit den verschiedenen Varianten ab 1609 oder die Anwendung der Spektralanalyse bei dem Licht der Sterne seit 1859. Das Kolloquium bietet Raum, solchen Marksteinen gebündelt nachzugehen und damit Material für weitere wissenschaftstheoretische und philosophische Überlegungen bereitzustellen. Hierbei sind von besonderem Interesse die individuellen Motivationen der handelnden Personen sowie die weltanschaulichen, religiösen und gesellschaftlichen Kontexte, aber auch die allgemeinen technischen und speziellen astro-technischen Rahmenbedingungen, die seit dem späten 20. Jahrhundert die computergestützten Anlagen einschließen.

Planetary Science: The Young Solar System
06 Sep 2020 - 12 Sep 2020 • ICISE, Quy Nhon, Vietnam, Vietnam
Abstract:
For decades scientific researchers have wondered how the solar system formed and evolved. This active field of research is populated with cosmochemists, planetary scientists, geologists, geophysicists and astronomers, among others, who all try to unravel what happened over 4.5 billion years ago. Yet despite all these international efforts the nature of the formation and evolution of the young solar system and the proclivity of the terrestrial planets to support a (long-term) biosphere remains obscure. It makes sense at this time to synthesis what we know, highlight key points of agreement and contention, and to provide recommendations for scientific progress.

IPA 2020 — Interplay between Particle and Astroparticle physics 2020
07 Sep 2020 - 11 Sep 2020 • Vienna, Austria
Organizer:
Institute of High Energy Physics (HEPHY) Vienna
Abstract:
There are several open questions in Physics today each of which touches the fields of both Particle Physics and Astroparticle/Cosmology. For example, only 5% of the Universe is described by the Standard Model of particle physics. A far larger contribution comes from the elusive Dark Matter whose existence has been inferred from Astroparticle measurements, and for which a large variety of models have been built by the theory community. Dark Matter is searched for in dedicated direct and indirect detection experiments but also in high-energy collisions at the LHC. Other subjects, such as the baryogenesis is still an open question related both to leptogenesis and CP violation and the matter content of today’s Universe. The knowledge of the neutrino sector has greatly increased over the past decades, but the question of the hierarchy is not yet solved and would need both accelerator/astroparticle and cosmological measurements to be fully understood. The physics of inflation which will be better constrained in the coming years would also need skills from both fields to be fully explored. Is a simple extension of the Standard Model sufficient or do we need more? In many fields the “single experiment” measurements have given way to more global views of our models: electroweak fits, exploring the parameter space of models beyond the Standard Model taking into account measurements and limits on new signatures.

The IPA2020 conference will bring together experimentalists and theorists to discuss the topics mentioned above with an emphasis on exchange between the different but correlated fields.

Origin, growth and feedback of black holes in dwarf galaxies
07 Sep 2020 - 11 Sep 2020 • San Sebastian, Spain
Abstract:
In this conference we plan to review the latest observational status concerning AGN in dwarfs, as well as to cover the prospects of other methods in identifying them, for example using dynamical measurements. Likewise, we will review and discuss theoretical models for the origin of black hole seeds, and how they might be a different population than that of black holes in normal galaxies, as well as models for the growth and feedback of such black holes onto the surrounding galaxy. Finally, we will discuss the fundamental properties of dwarfs as predicted by hierarchical galaxy formation in the LCDM model, paying attention to the interplay between galaxy and black hole growth modulated by feedback effects.
Topics:
Status of observations of AGN in dwarf galaxies (growth, variability, feedback), Theoretical models for black hole formation in dwarfs, Black hole seeds and dwarf connection

Padova2020 — Multiple stellar populations in the next decade
07 Sep 2020 - 11 Sep 2020 • Padova, Italy
Organizer:
Universita' di Padova
Abstract:
The discovery of multiple stellar populations in globular clusters (GCs) represents one of the most important results of the research in the field of stellar astrophysics. The last two decades witnessed a growing number of studies which, by reversing our vision of simple stellar systems compatible with an isochrone, unveiled the complex nature of the GCs . High-precision photometry color-magnitude diagrams revealed that GCs are composed of two or more discrete stellar groups with specific chemical compositions: one with abundances typical of halo field stars, the other(s) with enhanced light-elements as nitrogen and sodium. A sub-group of clusters also exhibits variations in heavy-elements and iron. Several scenarios of formation and evolution of multiple stellar populations have been proposed so far but none of them fulfills at once all the numerous observational constraints. Important questions, therefore, are still open: How did GCs form in the early Universe? What is their role in the assembly of the Galaxy? Did they significantly contribute to the reionization of the Universe? The aim of this conference is to connect observation and theory to review the state-of-the-art on multiple populations in GCs and discuss the developments of GC studies in the next future.

Wheel of Star Formation: A conference dedicated to Prof. Jan Palouš
14 Sep 2020 - 18 Sep 2020 • Prague, Czech Republic
Abstract:
This is a meeting to celebrate the life-time work and contributions to astronomy of Jan Palouš. Among other topics that have always interested Jan is the gas cycle in galaxies, in particular how star formation influences their evolution. With the advance of new instruments and computational capacities in the recent years, there have been many unexpected observational discoveries and sophisticated simulations. This brings a desire to think anew about these topics, and try to connect these sometimes conflicting findings with the greater picture of star formation as a key element in the evolution of the Universe. The goal of the meeting is to gather researchers actively working in the field, to present and discuss the up-to-date advances and discoveries, as well as identify the important questions and initiate discussions on their solution strategies.

ESO-ESA JOINT 2020 SCIENCE WORKSHOP: NEW SCIENCE IN THE MULTI-MESSENGER ERA
14 Sep 2020 - 18 Sep 2020 • Garching, Munich, Germany
Organizer:
ESO – European Southern Observatory
Abstract:
Multi-messenger astronomy - the combination of electromagnetic light with gravitational waves or neutrinos - has come of age. The detection of gravitational waves and a kilonova from a merging neutron star binary, and the identification of a flaring blazar in coincidence with a high energy neutrino mark the beginning of an era where the detections of sources beyond the electromagnetic spectrum will become increasingly common. The facilities of both ESO and ESA are central to efforts to identify the counterparts of sources initially located by either gravitational wave or neutrino observatories, and have made pivotal contributions to these first steps into multi-messenger astronomy. This workshop will celebrate these contributions, summarize the results gathered during the third LIGO/VIRGO observing run, and explore the long term possibilities enabled by LISA, E-ELT, Athena and more.

Galaxy evolution: from cosmic dawn to the Milky Way with the ESA Euclid mission and ESO telescopes
21 Sep 2020 - 25 Sep 2020 • Madrid, Spain
Organizer:
European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC)
Abstract:
Euclid is a high profile ESA mission to be launched mid 2022 aimed at characterizing with unprecedented accuracy the properties of Dark Energy by mapping the evolution of the large-scale structures of the Universe over the past 10 billions years. Euclid will have a major impact on galaxy formation from cosmic dawn to the present time. At lower redshift, Euclid will provide the equivalent of SDSS-quality images of redshift 0.1 galaxies out to redshift 0.7, for detailed morphological studies. Realizing the full potential of these programmes requires, however, follow-up spectroscopic observations of the photometrically selected samples. The workshop will address ESA/ESO synergies.

It will also be an occasion to celebrate the 50 years since the discovery of variable radio emission from X-ray binaries. The workshop aims to present and discuss the latest results related to X-ray binaries, in particular accretion/ejection physics (multi-wavelength observations and theory/simulations), the properties, mechanisms and interplays of the accretion disk, disk winds, jets, accretion/ejection at all scales, and comparison with the various accretions (BH, NS, CV). The formation, evolution and merging of compact objects in binaries will also be addressed. In the context of recent missions devoted to transient sources, new facilities will be discussed (such as NICER, HXMT, MeerKAT, ASKAP, etc), in addition to new tools and diagnostics based on X-ray timing.

Celebrating Sydney Leach : from Molecular Photophysics to Astrobiology with Musical Interludes
22 Sep 2020 - 25 Sep 2020 • Orsay, France
Abstract:
As many of you know, Sydney Leach died on December 24th 2019, at the age of 95. He was active to the very end. Sydney was a pillar of modern chemical physics and, through his many and lasting contributions, has been a major influence in placing ‘photophysique moléculaire’ squarely on the map of post-war science. Many of us, hearing of the sad news of his death, immediately felt that a meeting to commemorate Sydney’s life-long contribution would be very appropriate. Such a meeting is planned for September 22nd-25th of this year, to take place at Orsay at the Institut des Sciences Moléculaires d’Orsay.

CSS 2020 — Cosmology on Small Scales 2020: Excessive Extrapolations and Selected Controversies in Cosmology
23 Sep 2020 - 26 Sep 2020 • Prague, Czech Republic
Organizer:
Institute of Mathematics, Czech Academy of Sciences
Abstract:
According to the modern cosmological paradigm, about 2/3 of the energy of the Universe is in the dark form and about 5/6 of the matter is invisible. However, numerous recent attempts to detect independently the dark-matter particles failed, and a number of other problems with the existence of dark energy and dark matter (such as the anomalous friction in the dark-matter halos of galaxies, etc.) become now more and more obvious. All these troubles raise the question if the "dark" substance is merely a result of excessive extrapolations involved in the theoretical analysis? So, it is timely to gather specialists from various branches of astronomy and astrophysics to discuss these issues.
Topics:
Mathematical aspects of the extrapolations used in cosmology, Arguments for and against dark matter, 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, Complementary redshifts of non-cosmological nature, Quantum effects on the early universe and their observational imprints at the present time

From Clouds to Planets II: The Astrochemical Link
28 Sep 2020 - 02 Oct 2020 • 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.

The 3rd information Universe Conference
30 Sep 2020 - 02 Oct 2020 • Groningen, Netherlands
Abstract:
The key topic of the IU conference series is: “What is the role of information in the Universe and its description?”. In an epoch where scientists need to handle Big Data and simulations, find highly organized systems in nature and grapple with the role of information in physics and other sciences, this appears to be one of the more fundamental questions that needs to be answered in order to understand the world around us. The Information Universe conference intends to unite various approaches, addressing the fundamental role of information both in nature (in vivo) and in data analysis, theory and computer modelling (in vitro). The conference will approach the key role of information from the point of view of several disciplines: e.g. cosmology, physics, mathematics, life sciences, computer science (including quantum computing) and neuroscience.

Linking the Galactic and Extragalactic: stellar dynamics and stellar populations of the Milky Way and its siblings
30 Nov 2020 - 04 Dec 2020 • Wollongong, NSW, Australia
Organizer:
"Astro3D" an Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence
Abstract:
n this conference we aim to link Galactic and Extragalactic research, both of which bring unique perspectives to understanding how disk galaxies formed. The recent wealth of detailed Milky Way measurements from GALAH, APOGEE, LAMOST, and Gaia, combined with results from spatially resolved spectroscopic surveys such as SAMI, MaNGA, and with VLT­-MUSE, make this the ideal time to link Galactic and extragalactic research. Crucial in this discussion are the recent results from large cosmological and Milky Way zoom in simulations that shows that the Galaxy might not be the ideal template for understanding disk formation as previously thought.

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.

IAUS367 — Education and Heritage in the Era of Big Data in Astronomy. First steps on the IAU 202-2030 Strategic Plan
09 Dec 2020 - 14 Dec 2020 • San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina
Organizer:
Nationa University of Rio Negro
Abstract:
The primary goal of this Symposium is to give perhaps for the first time a global vision of Education and Heritage in the frame of the goals of the IAU, taking into account the Plan 2020-2030 and to propose an eventual ‘next steps’ road map and a global astronomy education agenda for the next decade, while honouring the education from the past.

In this sense, we would foster inclusiveness in the advancement of astronomy and facilitate the advancement of the next generation of astronomers and scientists, through encouragement of the use of new methods of learning and best practices (including distance education: Moocs) in pedagogy at university level, as well as the use of astronomy for teaching and education at school level, which are part of the definitions of the proposed Office of Astronomy for Education (OAE), which also pursuits the establishment of a Network of Astronomy Education Contacts (NAECs) to provide accessible materials and astronomy literacy guidelines globally. The invited speakers are international leaders in discipline-based education in astronomy and the planetary science, but also in communication, history, inclusion and protection of world’s heritage, including the dark sky.

As with most other sciences, astronomy is being fundamentally transformed by the Information and Computation Technology (ICT) revolution. The data volume is growing exponentially, can be accessed remotely and the observations can be performed even without a real knowledge of a telescope. The new approaches to the data permits the development of new tools, techniques and resources for data analysis and produce discoveries which probably never would be reached with traditional astronomy data analysis period.

Multiwavelength Probes of Galactic Atmospheres
25 Jan 2021 - 28 Jan 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The circumgalactic medium (CGM) can be viewed as an atmosphere that surrounds a galaxy and sustains star formation within it. Much of what we know about the CGM has come from absorption-line spectroscopy, mainly in the UV band, of gas at temperatures below the galaxy's virial temperature. A comparable amount of hotter gas, closer to the virial temperature, may also be present but has been harder to detect. If it is there, then the properties of the cooler clouds and the hotter ambient medium are likely to be complementary, deeply interwoven, and physically complex. It follows that the physics of cosmic rays, magnetic fields, turbulent mixing layers, conductive interfaces, and shocks may then play a leading role in setting the fate of the multiphase CGM. This conference will examine the evidence for a virial-temperature component along with the observations capable of revealing its properties and its relationship to the cooler components. Probes that complement UV absorption-line observations will be emphasized, including X-ray emission and absorption, UV and optical emission, Sunyaev-Zel'dovich probes, Fast Radio Bursts, and signposts of non-thermal particle acceleration.

Astrostatistics in Canada and Beyond
28 Feb 2021 - 05 Mar 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
What could be a bigger source of "big data" than the entire Universe? Researchers in statistics and computer science are developing new methods to analyse the "big data" that companies and governments want to understand. To test out these methods they need big datasets that everyone can share - and new astronomical telescopes just happen to be gearing up to generate observations of billions of stars and galaxies that fit the bill. Insights from statistics will help astrophysicists to get the most out of these observations. The Astrostatistics 2021 workshop will bring together statisticians and astrophysicists to learn the technical languages of the two fields and identify how to work together to combine the excitement of space with big data.

White Dwarfs from Physics to Astrophysics
29 Mar 2021 - 01 Apr 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
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.

AwRI2021 — Astronomy with Radioactive Isotopes
31 May 2021 - 03 Jun 2021 • 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.

Star Formation: From Clouds to Discs. A Tribute to the Career of Lee Hartmann
16 Aug 2021 - 19 Aug 2021 • Malahide, Ireland
Organizer:
Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, Ireland
Abstract:
This conference will celebrate the career of Lee Hartmann, who has made enormous contributions to our field during his productive life. For over 3 decades Lee has been a leading pioneer in characterizing the physics of molecular clouds, stars and planet formation. His scientific breadth and impact can be seen in his studies on molecular cloud formation and cloud lifetimes. This has led to a change in our paradigm of star formation towards more rapid evolution. He has been among the first to recognize the importance of accretion and magnetic fields in the phenomena observed in young stars, and has led ground-breaking efforts characterizing these effects. As a tribute to Lee, but also recognizing that we stand on the threshold of a new era with the arrival of JWST, E-ELT and SKA, it is appropriate to take stock of the most fascinating developments in our field, emphasizing those areas where Lee has made significant contributions.

Detection and Analysis of Gravitational Waves in the era of Multi-Messenger Astronomy: From Mathematical Modelling to Machine Learning
14 Nov 2021 - 19 Nov 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Gravitational-waves are a new way to explore the sky and uncover the Universe’s deepest mysteries. Although the first detection of these "ripples of space-time" is only a few years old, scientists can now harness the potential of gravitational waves in testing Einstein’s General Relativity theory under extreme conditions, helping to understand the origin of matter, and measuring the evolution of the Universe. Researchers from all around the world are gathering in Oaxaca to discuss recent progress in, and the future of gravitational-wave science. The workshop "Detection and analysis of gravitational waves in the era of multi-messenger astronomy: From mathematical modelling to machine learning", provides a forum, unique in its genre, for discussing new mathematical methods in modelling, detecting, and analyzing gravitational waves, as well as their integration with machine learning, or artificial intelligence.
