The world's most important and most prestigious physics meeting will be held online on 23-26 May 2022, hosted by İstanbul University.
This meeting, also known as the meeting of Nobel prize winners, was held for the first time in 1987 in India. Since 2004, it has been held in various countries, notably in Italy, France, Australia and Canada.
The list of lecturers, some of which have sometimes lectured more than once, includes the likes of Nobel Laureates such as Professors G.’t Hooft, S. Chu, Charles Townes, Klaus von Klitzing, Pierre de Gennes, Douglas D. Osheroff, Sir Harry Kroto, Claude Cohen-Tannoudji, Sir Tony Leggett as well as other eminent Physicists like Prof. Yuval Ne’eman, Prof. J. Pati, Prof. Ashok Sen and many other prominent scholars.
Some of those who gave speeches in this meeting series and took part in the international organizing committee were honored with Nobel Prizes in Physics, Dirac Awards, or other prestigious awards in the following years.
This year, Physicists with Nobel Prize in Physics, Fields Medalists (Nobel Prize in Mathematics), Dirac Medalists, Nobel Prize in Physics nominees, Physicists who put forward very important theories, Chief Editors of highly respected Physics Journals and many distinguished Physicists, such as directors of Major Research Centers will participate and give talks as invited speakers.
Past meetings’ talks have been published by leading publishers such as University Press (Orient Longman), Kluwer Academic, Springer and the American Institute of Physics. The talks of this year’s meeting will be published as a book by Springer.
We will be happy to see you at this physics festival where fundamental problems in many fields of physics from particle theory to cosmology, information theory to complex systems and philosophy to physics education will be discussed.
The lectures and tutorials will be highly interactive, leaving room for questions and discussion; with this aim, several panel discussion sessions and evening tutorials will be scheduled along the week, promoting an interactive atmosphere. The participants will be encouraged to present a summary of their ongoing work or/and future projects during the panel sessions.
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.
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.
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.
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.
