SIGRAV2022 — Cosmology: from Theory to Observation
14 Feb 2022 - 18 Feb 2022 • Vietri sul Mare, Italy
Organizer:
Italian Society of General Relativity and Gravitation (SIGRAV)
Abstract:
We are pleased to announce the international SIGRAV PhD school 2022, organised by the Italian Society of General Relativity and Gravitation (SIGRAV).

This year our PhD school aims at providing robust and deep knowledge of Cosmology in the context of General Relativity and its possible modifications, with particular attention to phenomenological consequences and observations. The School is based on four courses and two lectures focused on specific topics:

– Early Universe, Inflation and Primordial Gravitational Waves: Mairi Sakellariadou (King’s College)

– Observational perspectives for the Cosmic Microwave Background: Paolo de Bernardis (Sapienza Univ. di Roma)

– Neutrino Cosmology and Dark Matter: Massimiliano Lattanzi (INFN)

– Modified gravity cosmology: Emmanuel Saridakis (National Observatory of Athens)

– Machine learning in cosmology (focused talk): Nicoletta Krachmalnicoff (SISSA)

– Cosmic Microwave Background phenomenology (focused talk), Erminia Calabrese (University of Cardiff)

Lathuile-2022 — XXXV Rencontres de Physique de la Vallée d'Aoste
06 Mar 2022 - 12 Mar 2022 • La Thuile, Italy
Abstract:
This is the thirty-fifth Workshop in Particle Physics being held yearly at the Planibel Hotel of La Thuile, Aosta Valley. La Thuile is a beautiful mountain village located 1450 m a.sl., about 40 km north of the city of Aosta, on the road to the Mont Blanc. The hotel is at the bottom of a vast skiing area connected with the French ski resort La Rosiere and it is an outstanding complex for winter sports and congresses. The Rencontres will bring together about 120 active experimentalists and theorists, as well as a number of young students supported by the Organizers, to review the status and the future prospects in elementary particle physics.
Topics:
Astroparticle ; Cosmology ; Gravitational Waves ; Particle Physics Experimental ; Particle Physics Theoretical ; Particle Physics Phenomenology ; Neutrino Physics ; Science and Society

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.

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.
