Evolving Galaxies in Evolving Environments

The programme of the conference will cover the following topics:

  • Evolving environments: clusters, groups, density field, clustering, dark matter environment, and how they depend globally on redshift)
  • Central galaxies: links between accretion, bulge growth, star formation & AGN feedback, including BCGs.
  • Multiphase gas and environment: observations and simulations of gas budget vs halo mass, hot gas (detection, cooling, stripping), warm gas (absorption studies, abundance), cold gas (detection of flows, abundance).
  • Satellite galaxies: direct evidence of interaction with environment, physical mechanisms, simulations, empirical trends.
  • Tight interactions and no interactions: merging, close pairs, compact groups, fossils/isolated galaxies, etc.

Galactic and Extragalactic Star Formation

The conference will be held from Monday 8 to Friday 12 September 2014 in Marseille at the congress center “Palais du Pharo” located on the “Vieux Port”. It will focus on observational and computational star formation in the Milky Way and external galaxies, emphasizing the link between these fields. The first aim of this meeting is to bring together the Galactic and extragalactic communities to exchange new results and discuss the perspectives offered by rich existing and forthcoming facilities such as Herschel, Spitzer, Sofia, JWST, as well as radio-telescopes and interferometers such as ALMA, EVLA and the future NOEMA and SKA. The second aim of the conference is to confront the latest results regarding analytical models and simulations to detailed observations of clouds and star formation in the Milky Way and other galaxies.

High-Resolution Optical Spectroscopy

The scope of this meeting is to bring together the astronomical community that builds and uses high-resolution spectrographs. High spectral resolution is essential to quantify and to constrain the many micro- and macro-scale processes in cosmic plasma. In particular we will emphasize the coupling between predictive numerical simulations and quantitative spectroscopic observations. We organize this meeting in the framework of the series of “Potsdam ThinkShops” as meeting number 10. The venue will be held at the Telegrafenberg science campus of the AIP in Potsdam in May 2013 and will be open for an international professional auditorium as well as students.

Topics covered:

  • New instruments on the block
  • Methods and highlights
  • Results on normal stars, low-mass stars, binaries, and exoplanets
  • Results on massive stars, ISM, IGM, and quasars
