Black holes: bridges between number theory and holographic quantum information
04 Sep 2023 - 20 Dec 2023 • Cambridge , United Kingdom
Organizer:
Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI)
Abstract:
Defining a theory of quantum gravity remains one of the most challenging problems at the cutting edge of research in mathematical and theoretical physics. Unlocking this problem implies constructing a quantum field theoretic description of gravity which fully elucidates how a quantum field theory encodes gravitational spacetime background solutions. Much of the progress in shaping the language and the framework of this problem owes its genesis to a specific subset of problems in quantum gravity, namely those dealing with understanding the organisation of information in black holes.

BIRS Workshop — Astrostatistics in Canada and Beyond
29 Oct 2023 - 03 Nov 2023 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
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 2023 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.

Organizer:
Société astronomique de France, Paris Observatory, and BSN project
Abstract:
The International Meeting on Eclipsing Binary Star Systems (EBS) will take place in Paris, France, on November 11 and 12, 2023. The main goal of the 2023 meeting is to review eclipsing binary systems from a theoretical and observational point of view. Therefore, this meeting is planned for both professionals and amateurs. However, most of the focus of the meeting will be on the W UMa-type binary systems, which are one of the most interesting types of binary systems and are important astrophysical tools for understanding star formation, structure, and evolution. A large number of these binary systems have not been observed and analysed yet. In order to analyse these binaries, it is usually necessary to have appropriate ground-based observations at the large and small observatories. We welcome all branches regarding eclipsing binary systems. Another goal of this meeting is to establish proper communication between professionals and amateur observers in this field.

This meeting was organized by the Société astronomique de France, Paris Observatory and the BSN project. ‘English’ is the meeting language, and the number of places for face-to-face participation is limited.

Rocky Worlds 3
08 Jan 2024 - 12 Feb 2024 • Zurich, Switzerland
Organizer:
ETH Zurich
Abstract:
The planets that are best understood are the four terrestrial planets of our own solar system. Applying the detailed understanding gleaned from these bodies is crucial in our interpretation of exoplanetary systems. With the ongoing programs to search for planets around nearby stars, as well as upcoming ground- and space-based surveys, we can anticipate huge growth in the number and information on detected rocky exoplanets in the coming decades. As the characterisation of these new planetary systems proceeds it will in turn improve understanding of our own solar system, and in particular of how potentially habitable Earth-like planets may form, evolve, and are distributed throughout the galaxy.

The Rocky Worlds conference series aims to bring together planetary scientists, astronomers, and earth scientists to foster discussion and build the collaborations that will pave the way for the next decade of rocky exoplanet discovery and characterisation.

Topics:
astronomy, exoplanets, planetary science, geophysics, geochemistry, climate science, astrobiology, origins of life

What is String Theory? Weaving Perspectives Together
08 Jan 2024 - 19 Apr 2024 • KITP, Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
While it is widely acknowledged that string theory provides a framework for addressing quantum gravitational (and even quantum field theoretic) questions, the precise nature of its organizational principle remains obscure. Nearly three decades ago, when the question “What is string theory?” was asked, the perturbative string worldsheet viewpoint played the starring role. Since then, the discovery of D-branes, string dualities, and the holographic AdS/CFT correspondence has had spacetime dynamics taking center-stage. Much insight has been gleaned from these developments. We now have, for example, a much broader class of string backgrounds with better control over compactifications; strong constraints on the low energy effective field theories; a plethora of gauge-string dualities as well as applications of holographic techniques to a wide class of physical problems; and new angles on semiclassical gravitational physics from a fruitful interplay with quantum information in holography. Together with an influx of new tools and techniques, we have a very rich set of perspectives that illuminate the subject we continue to call string theory. While all these developments are interesting in and of themselves, it is an opportune moment to attempt to synthesize these, often disparate, strands and arrive at a deeper answer to the question in the title.

phystarform — The physics of star formation
12 Feb 2024 - 23 Feb 2024 • Les Houches, France
Abstract:
Stars are the building blocks of our Universe. Not only do they synthetise all heavy elements such as carbon and oxygen, but they heat and energize their surrounding medium and host planets, the cradle of life. Understanding star formation is therefore of broad and fundamental interest in astrophysics and beyond. Yet it is an extremely rich multi-scale and multi-physics process which entails several fields of knowledge in interaction. The purpose of the school is to provide the newer generation of scientists working in this field with the basic knowledge necessary to carry out research in this field. Students and early postdocs are particularly welcome to register.
Topics:
star formation, physical processes, gravity, turbulence, magnetic field, cooling, heating, radiative transfer, dust grains, cosmic rays, molecular clouds, interstellar medium, protoplanetary disk, galaxy, stars

Turbulence in the Universe
20 Feb 2024 - 23 Feb 2024 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
Turbulence is an important process in various astrophysical environments and over vast scales. These environments range from the interior of stars, the solar wind, accretion flows, disks, jets, the interstellar medium and the circumgalactic medium, to the intra-cluster medium. The past few decades have seen great advances in both observational and theoretical studies of astrophysical turbulence. The advances in understanding and measuring turbulence have also brought significant changes to many branches of astronomy.

This conference will bring together turbulence experts from a wide range of subfields in astrophysics and physics. The goal is to encourage and enhance interdisciplinary discussions and collaborations. The conference will cover many topics, including: turbulent dynamo, magnetic reconnection, plasma physics, space physics, unresolved physics and sub-grid models in numerical simulations, turbulence in the laboratory, new observational techniques for diagnosing turbulence, connecting observations and models, and astrophysical applications of magnetized turbulence (e.g. star formation, cosmic rays, accretion, galaxy formation and evolution).

Anticipating the Rising Tide of Tidal Disruption Events: Theory and Observations
22 Apr 2024 - 25 Apr 2024 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
Tidal disruption events (TDEs), which occur when a star is destroyed by the immense tidal field of a supermassive black hole, fuel luminous accretion flares that provide unique insight into the properties of galactic nuclei and their central black holes. The detection rate of these events has accelerated in recent years thanks to advances in wide-field survey capabilities across the electromagnetic spectrum. Nonetheless, there remain theoretical uncertainties in the modeling of TDEs that obfuscate understanding in the face of observations, and our ability to use TDEs as a collective Rosetta Stone for deciphering black hole demographics across cosmic time remains elusive. To bridge theory and observation and to start to tap the wealth of understanding contained within TDE observations, this conference aims to unite the diverse field of astronomers working on TDEs and the related fields of variable Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) and X-ray binaries. This conference will highlight the recent advances that have been made in understanding TDEs, make connections to related astrophysical phenomena, and elucidate the most outstanding questions in TDE theory and observation.

“Some Like It Hot!” A Journey from the Hot IGrM to the Multiphase CGM
22 Apr 2024 - 17 May 2024 • Garching, Germany
Organizer:
MIAPbP - Munich Institute for Astro-, Particle and BioPhysics an institute of the Excellence Cluster ORIGINS
Abstract:
The exchange of mass, energy, and metals between galaxies, their surrounding circum-galactic medium (CGM), and the gas permeating halos at larger scale represents a fundamental part of the modern astrophysics. Both components still elude our knowledge. Indeed, we are very far from having a census of the CGM properties in the bulk of the galaxy population. Furthermore, the halo gas is well known at large scale only in the most massive halos of our Universe, the galaxy clusters (intra-cluster medium, ICM), but it is still very elusive in the bulk of the virtualized halo population at the group mass scale (Intra-group medium IGrM).

With the advent of instrument such as eROSITA, XRISM and JWST, and the enormous variety of results collected by Alma, MUSE, KCWI and LOFAR, it is time to review the state of the art of this research field. The final goal of this workshop is to fill the knowledge gap and review in an unbiased way all the key aspects of the baryon cycle: from the hot IGrM enclosed in the bulk of the virtualized halo population, to the CGM at hundreds of kpc from the central galaxy, and down to the main mechanisms in act at the galaxy center able to trigger the baryonic exchange.

Habitability: The Astrophysical, Atmospheric and Geophysical Implications
21 May 2024 - 14 Jun 2024 • Garching, Germany
Organizer:
MIAPbP - Munich Institute for Astro-, Particle and BioPhysics an institute of the Excellence Cluster ORIGINS
Abstract:
It is widely accepted that habitability and the capability of a planet to maintain its habitable conditions are deeply interwoven with its chemical composition and physical properties such as its atmospheric and geological/geophysical characteristics, orbital motion, dynamics, and its interactions with its host star. How these interactions originate and how they enable the planet to maintain its habitability are complex questions that can only be answered through collaborations between scientists of their respective fields. This workshop aims to bring together scientists from the fields of stellar astrophysics, planetary science, planetary dynamics, geology, and geophysics to discuss fundamental questions regarding the formation, characterization, and detection of habitable planets. Our plan is to facilitate interactions among participants through lectures, presentations and discussion sessions as well as to provide them with ample time to initiate collaborations and carry out their independent research. Our workshop is open to scientists of all levels, in particular junior and early-career researchers.

Cosmic Signals of Dark Matter Physics: New Synergies
03 Jun 2024 - 06 Jun 2024 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
Observables spanning a wide range of cosmic epochs and length-scales independently testify to the existence of dark matter. Although little is known about the microphysical nature of dark matter, its mere existence points to physics beyond the Standard Model. New developments in theory, cosmological simulations, and observational capabilities in the era of large surveys have opened up a vast landscape for dark matter discovery, which includes models that can only be tested by astrophysical and cosmological probes.

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.

Cosmic Dawn Revealed by JWST: The Physics of the First Stars, Galaxies, and Black Holes
26 Aug 2024 - 29 Aug 2024 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The exploration of cosmic dawn is currently in an exceptionally exciting phase, and we expect the immediate future to be even more exciting with a new set of discoveries delivered by JWST. 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?

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.
