International Molecule-type Workshop: "Tidal Disruption Events: General Relativistic Transients"
14 Jan 2020 - 25 Jan 2020 • Kyoto, Japan
Organizer:
Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan
Abstract:
In this workshop, we invite young to established career scientists with demonstrated leadership in TDEs, aiming to foster collaboration on a global scale. We focus our attention on GR effects in TDE (hydro)dynamics with the goal of making predictive models that can be compared to existing and future TDE observations. From 1/14 to 1/16, we will also organize a three-day conference for discussing the interplay between TDE theory and observations, with additional key observational speakers.

Cosmic Cartography 2020 — Exploring the Cosmic Web and Large-Scale Structure
06 Apr 2020 - 10 Apr 2020 • Kashiwanoha, Japan
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (IPMU), University of Tokyo
Abstract:
Going into the 2020s, cosmic large scale structure will be mapped with increasing detail by the next generation of observational facilities operating at various wavelengths (radio, optical, infra-red) and exploiting various techniques. Meanwhile, theory and simulations are increasing in sophistication in their ability to describe large-scale structure. These advances could potentially allow greater constraints into cosmological parameters and theories of galaxy evolution. The goal of this meeting at the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (IPMU) is to bring together a diverse group of researchers working on the cosmic web, its various tracers, and their embedded galaxies from both observational and theoretical perspectives.

Time-Domain Cosmology with Strong Gravitational Lensing
13 Apr 2020 - 15 Apr 2020 • Kashiwa, Japan
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU)
Abstract:
This workshop will focus on applications of strong gravitational lensing to do cosmology, particularly with time-domain observations. This would include time-delay lensed quasars to determine the Hubble constant, lensed supernovae from future surveys, microlensing to detect dark compact objects, the effects of substructure lensing, and lensed gravitational waves, among other topics.
