Very High Energy Phenomena in the Universe

Very High Energy Phenomena in the Universe will focus on what is also called astroparticle physics. This meeting will be organized in Quy Nhon on a regular basis every 4 years, alternating with the Rencontres de Moriond meeting on the same subject.

Windows on the Universe

The Inaugural Conference of the ICISE on Windows on the Universe will review the most recent status of Particle Physics, Astroparticle and Cosmology. The conference will consist of plenary sessions for invited indepth oral presentations (review talks and talks on specific specialised topics), and contributed papers, in the form of relatively short oral papers – in parallel sessions – or posters. Special emphasis is being placed on active participation by young researchers and post-docs.

The main topics of the conference are:

  • Particle Physics
    • Production and Properties of the Higgs Boson
    • Searches for New Physics
    • Phenomenology of Physics Beyond the Standard Model
    • Production and Properties of the Heavy Quarks
    • Studies of Electroweak and QCD physics
    • Latest Results from Heavy Ion Collisions
    • Recent Results from the Intensity Frontier
    • Neutrino Physics from the Laboratory
    • Future Facilities (Accelerators)
  • AstroParticle Physics and Cosmology
    • Gamma-Ray Astronomy : Ground-Based and Satellite Experiments
    • Cosmic Rays : Ground-Based and Satellite Experiments
    • Multi Messenger Astronomy (Neutrinos, CR and GW)
    • Dark Energy and Dark Matter
    • The Cosmic Background Radiation
    • The Early Universe
    • Large Scale Structures
    • Future Facilities (Satellites and Telescopes)

Latest results from the neutron-star laboratory

SRON Netherlands Institute for Space Research, the Astronomical Institute “Anton Pannekoek” of the University of Amsterdam, and ASTRON Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy are organizing a 5-day conference detailing the latest developments in neutron star research. More than 45 years after the discovery of the first pulsar, neutron stars are now used as gravitational-wave detectors and astrophysical laboratories for studying the physics of ultra-high magnetic fields, gravity, and ultra-dense matter. We envisage a program highlighting the most recent results on radio (e.g. LOFAR, GBT, Arecibo) and high-energy (e.g. Fermi) searches for new pulsars as well as cutting-edge results from studies of known neutron-star systems and their surroundings. We also wish to capture the still expanding variety of neutron-star behavior, including talks on transient sources/events such as the RRATS and (giant) flares of magnetars. In addition, with LOFAR capabilities for monitoring the transient and pulsar sky becoming fully operational in 2012, it is opportune to confront the early results with those of the high-energy window.
