Accurate astrophysics, correct cosmology

Progress in cosmology increasingly requires a strong quantitative handle on astrophysical contaminants. Equally, many astrophysically interesting processes can be constrained from cosmological survey data. This meeting will bring together experts in a range of fields to take a critical look at the relationship between accurate astrophysics and correct cosmology.

21° Young Scientists’ Conference on Astronomy and Space Physics

The aim of the annual Open Young Scientists’ Conference on Astronomy and Space Physics is to provide young scientists with a possibility to communicate and present their scientific work. Young scientist is a bachelor / master / PhD student, young researcher.

Fields:

  • atmospheric studies and space geophysics
  • Solar physics and heliosphere
  • Solar System & extrasolar planets
  • stellar astrophysics
  • interstellar and intergalactic medium
  • extragalactic astrophysics and cosmology
  • high-energy astrophysics and astroparticle physics
  • positional astronomy and astronomical equipment
  • computers in astronomy

Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology

Research on Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology in Argentina and Brazil has reached a substantial degree of development. We believe, however, that the interaction between groups of both countries working in these areas is still not strong enough to undertake long-term, successful joint research programs. It was with the goal of stimulating collaboration that we started the series of Argentinian-Brazilian Meetings on Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology.

The first meeting was held in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, in October 2011, with the attendance of 76 researchers and students from Argentina and Brazil. The conference consisted in a number of invited review talks encompassing a wide and balanced range of topics, that offered a complete panorama of the research lines of both communities. The meeting closed with a round-table discussion. Participants could also present their work as posters.

The organization of the second meeting of the series aims at strengthening the links between both communities, and fully involving a larger number of researchers and students in the discussions. The scheme of the conference will change to include contributed talks, together with a few invited presentations by well-known specialists on topics of particular relevance. We as well intend to encourage the involvement of researchers from Brazil and Argentina in the Cherenkov Telescope Array Consortium (CTA, http://www.cta-observatory.org/), and to explore the applications in the fields of Astrophysics and Cosmology of the binational project Long Latin American Millimeter Array (LLAMA, http://www.iar.unlp.edu.ar/llama-web/).

Meet the Space

Kraków invites you to participate in a cyclic international event, where cosmic science meets technology. The aims are to facilitate networking of people interested in space exploration, to promote and popularize scientific and industrial achievements, to inspire and to create new research directions concerning extraterrestrial environments. Show us what is your project/research. Meet a lot of fantastic people and explore new possibilities.

Frontiers in Astronomy: from the beginning of the Universe to the outer reaches of the Solar System

The Royal Society, in partnership with The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, will be hosting a one day symposium on cosmology and astrophysics. Organised by Professor Øystein Elgarøy (Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics at the University of Oslo), Professor George Efstathiou FRS (Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge) and Professor Anthony Lasenby (Cavendish Laboratory and Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge), the symposium will bring together the world’s leading experts in this field. Norway’s Crown Prince Haakon will attend.

The symposium will also include the Kavli Prize Laureate lecture by Professor Jane Luu in collaboration with the Kavli Foundation. Professor Jane Luu was awarded the 2012 Kavli Prize and the 2012 Shaw Prize alongside Professor David Jewitt for the discovery and characterisation of objects in the Kuiper Belt, a region beyond Neptune’s orbit.

The Kavli Prize Laureate lecture is open to the public. This event is free to attend and open to all. No tickets are required. Doors open at 5.30pm and seats will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Further information can be found here.

Biographies of the speakers are available below and you can also download the  programme (PDF).

20° Young Scientists’ Conference on Astronomy and Space Physics

Department of Astronomy & Space Physics and Virtual Roentgen and Gamma Observatory (VIRGO.UA)announce the 20th Open Young Scientists’ Conference on Astronomy and Space Physics. The conference will take place at the Faculty of Physics of the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv on April 22-27, 2013.

The conference is intended for participation of students, PhD students and young researches who are involved in research in one of the following fields:

  • atmospheric studies and space geophysics
  • Solar physics and heliosphere
  • Solar System & extrasolar planets
  • stellar astrophysics
  • interstellar and intergalactic medium
  • extragalactic astrophysics and cosmology
  • high-energy astrophysics and astroparticle physics
  • positional astronomy and astronomical equipment
  • computers in astronomy

During the Conference each young participant should present a short report (12 minutes) about results of his/her research or a poster (with an oral (!) poster presentation for 5 minutes). Besides students’ reports several invited lectures are planned. Participants can present their reports using either multimedia projector or projector for transparent films. Working language of YSC’20 is English. The conference programme also includes excursions to the Main Astronomical Observatory of the NAS of Ukraine, Museum of Folk Architecture and Life of Ukraine, Kyiv city tour (by bus), Kyiv by night (walking tour), evening for theater/opera/organ hall and conference dinner. In order to participate in the conference it is necessary to submit information about yourself (name, address, institution, affiliation, etc.) along with a short abstract of your report via electronic registration form. The book of abstracts of YSC’20 will be published after the deadline and distributed among the participants during the registration

All the articipants are welcome to submit their contributions to peer-reviewed journal Advances in Astronomy and Space Physics till April 30, 2013.
