The Hawking Radiation Conference

La lista dei partecipanti non ha nulla da invidiare alle stelle che si vedono sfilare durante la cerimonia per gli Academy Awards, ma in questo caso si tratta di tutt’altro. Stiamo parlando di una conferenza in onore di Stephen Hawking organizzata dal Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics (Nordita). Infatti, il celebre fisico e cosmologo inglese assieme ad una ventina di fisici tra i più influenti al livello mondiale saranno impegnati per una settimana, dal 24 al 29 Agosto, a confrontarsi su alcuni degli argomenti più caldi che riguardano l’astrofisica dei buchi neri, tra cui la radiazione Hawking, il paradosso dell’informazione e l’esistenza delle singolarità gravitazionali.

Hot Topics in General Relativity and Gravitation

In this centennial anniversary of General Relativity, we will hold a conference on Hot Topics in General Relativity and Gravitation with the motivation to emphasize the tremendous progresses that have been made in Astrophysics and in Cosmology since Einstein’s discovery of General Relativity (GR) in 1915. This international conference will be held at ICISE as part of the Rencontres du Vietnam. Continua a leggere Hot Topics in General Relativity and Gravitation

Astronomy & Astrophysics from Antarctica

Astronomy & Astrophysics from Antarctica became a Scientific Research Program of SCAR in 2010. Broadly stated, its objectives are to coordinate astronomical activities in Antarctica in a way that ensures the best possible outcomes from international investment in Antarctic astronomy, and to maximize the opportunities for productive interaction with other disciplines.

IAU XXIX General Assembly

The IAU Executive Committee, during its meeting last April in Canberra, Australia, approved the IAU Symposia and Focus Meetings (FM) for the General Assembly year 2015. There will be one Symposium (IAUS 314 Young Stars and Planets Near the Sun) which will take place outside the General Assembly, in May at the Georgia State University in Atlanta, USA. Six Symposia and 22 Focus Meetings will take place during the General Assembly in Honolulu. Continua a leggere IAU XXIX General Assembly

34th International Cosmic Ray Conference

The 34th International Cosmic Ray Conference (ICRC) will be held from July 30 to August 6, 2015, in The Hague, The Netherlands. It is an important and large conference in the field of Astroparticle Physics. The ICRC covers: cosmic-ray physics, solar and heliospheric physics, gamma-ray astronomy, neutrino astronomy, and dark matter physics.

Frontiers in Radio Astronomy

Echoing the first FRA meeting in 2012, we are excited to announce the second international science symposium “Frontiers in Radio Astronomy” to be held in Guiyang, China between July 29th and 31st, 2015.  This meeting will focus on most recent development in radio astronomy and to explore the promises of FAST early science operation. It is hosted by National Astronomical Observatories of China and Guizhou Normal University, with  support from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, National Natural Science Foundation of China, and the Ministry of Science and Technology of China.

Mocking the Universe

In the coming era of LSST, PanSTARRS, WFIRST, Euclid, ALMA, ELTs, JWST, and other facilities, we want to know: What science can we learn by injecting more astrophysics into mock catalogs, and how can we use mock data to maximize the science output of real data?

Paving the way to simultaneous multi-wavelength astronomy

Studying systems, which emit over several orders of magnitude in energy, necessitates the combination of ground based (radio/mm/optical/IR/VHE) and space based (optical-UV/IR/X-ray/VHE) instruments. Continua a leggere Paving the way to simultaneous multi-wavelength astronomy
