9th Microquasar Workshop: Celebrating over 50 years of discovery
20 Sep 2021 - 24 Sep 2021 • Cagliari (Sardinia) – online, Italy
Abstract:
It is the ninth in a series of conferences mainly devoted to microquasars but also covering relativistic jet sources in a broader context. It will also be an occasion to celebrate the 50 years since the discovery of variable radio emission from X-ray binaries. Given all the uncertainties in the next few months, the conference will be virtual.

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.

Topics:
Multi-wavelength observations of Binaries (Galactic and Extragalactic) Formation, evolution and merging of compact objects in Binaries Timing analysis Accretion-ejection connection at all scales Theory/simulations

PUMA2021 — Probing the universe with Multimessenger Astronomy
27 Sep 2021 - 01 Oct 2021 • Sestri Levante, Italy
Organizer:
University of Genova and INFN-Sezione di Genova
Abstract:
A conference to gather an overview of the status and future prospects of astrophysics and cosmology with a multimessenger approach. The conference will feature only plenary sessions on the following topics: astrophysics with electromagnetic waves, astrophysics with gravitational waves, astroparticle physics and neutrino astrophysics, nuclear astrophysics, cosmology. The conference was originally planned for 2020 and moved to 2021 because of the Covid-19 emergency situation.

NuSym 2021 — 10th International Symposium on Nuclear Symmetry Energy
11 Oct 2021 - 15 Oct 2021 • Catania, Italy
Organizer:
The event is organized and supported by the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN), Sezione di Catania and Laboratori Nazionali del Sud.
Abstract:
The symposium will address experimental and theoretical investigations of the equation of state of asymmetric nuclear matter. Such investigations include efforts in nuclear structure, nuclear reactions and heavy-ion collisions, as well as in astrophysical observations of compact stars and associated phenomena (neutron stars and core collapse supernovae, among others). Significant implications of gravitational wave signals, astro-particle physics and neutrino observations will be discussed. Students and postdocs are especially encouraged to participate and contribute to the scientific sessions of the symposium.
Topics:
Nuclear Equation of State (EoS) and Symmetry Energy in laboratory experiments and in astrophysical observations, Nuclear structure and dynamics, Structure and clustering of nuclear systems and matter under extreme conditions, Physics of compact stars , Isospin dependence of the nuclear interaction , Relevance of gravitational waves and astro-particle experiments on the EoS of nuclear matter , Nucleosynthesis phenomena in isospin asymmetric matter , Supernovae neutrinos and the EoS of the neutrinosphere , Astro-particle experiments , Future investigations at existing and future accelerator facilities , Transport model simulations of HIC , New detector developments

TW2022 — THe 13th Torino Workshop on AGB stars
19 Jun 2022 - 24 Jun 2022 • Perugia, Italy
Organizer:
University of Perugia, Dept of Physics and Geology and INFN sezione di Perugia
Abstract:
The Torino Workshops series started in Torino in 1995. Since then, 12 workshops have been held by various institutions around the world. Traditionally, the Torino Workshop focuses on the physics of asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars and many related topics: stellar evolution and nucleosynthesis, observations (photometry, spectrometry, and asteroseismology), stellar winds, dust and presolar grain formation, galactic chemical evolution, theoretical and experimental nuclear astrophysics. The workshop will bring together experts, and friends, involved in these research fields to identify current key scientific questions and the possible ways to address them by interdisciplinary approaches. This meeting edition will celebrate Prof. Maurizio M. Busso on the occasion of his 70th birthday. Maurizio is among the founders of the Torino Workshop and during his career he has given important contributions to the study of AGB stars and related fields covered in the workshop.
