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.

A 3D View on Galaxy Evolution

To decipher the underlying processes that shape galaxies over time, we need to uncover their physical properties and the conditions controlling them. This in turn requires in-depth measurements of the stars, gas and dust, inside as well as surrounding the galaxies. Continua a leggere A 3D View on Galaxy Evolution

Symmetries and Phases in the Universe

Cosmology is a broad interdisciplinary research discipline involving different fields of physics. The main goal of the Excellence Cluster Universe is to face the fundamental challenges of modern cosmology by bridging the gap between the astrophysics and the particle/nuclear physics communities.

Galaxies of many colours: Star formation across cosmic time

Molecular gas and dust emission add an essential piece of information in the understanding of the star formation processes. This is particularly true for the most obscured and dense star forming regions, where optical and near-IR observations suffer from a large obscuration. The last years have been particularly exciting as (sub-)mm interferometers revealed a large number of molecular lines, offering new proxies to estimate the conditions of star formation.

Gas, Dust, and Star Formation in Galaxies from the Local to the Far Universe

Spitzer, Herschel, and Planck allowed us to make an important step forward in our understanding of the nature of galaxies. On one hand, the extensive surveys of nearby galaxies performed by Herschel studied with unprecedented details the distribution and the properties of dust, and provided key insights on the processes of dust heating and star formation in these objects. On the other hand, the deep infrared and sub-millimeter surveys revealed a large population of massive, gas-rich, intensely star-forming galaxies, which have no local analogues.

Revolution in Astronomy with ALMA

The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) has been producing a growing number of impressive and scientifically compelling results as the most powerful mm/submm interferometer in the world. Held in central Tokyo, the aim of this four day conference is to highlight the most recent science results from ALMA obtained during the first three years of science operations, and to motivate future collaboration among researchers around the world.

Galaxy Groups: laboratories to study galaxy evolution

The main motivation of this mini-workshop is to discuss ideas/results/projects in the field of galaxy groups (and all the physical processes related with this topic). This mini-workshop will be held in La Serena, in order to motivate the participation of researchers and students working in different chilean institutions.

Star Formation Across Space and Time

The objective of this meeting is to bring together astronomers interested in all aspects of star formation, from local galactic to extreme extra-galactic high-z conditions. Recent advances on the subject suggest various communities can benefit from each other, and the meeting aims to facilitate cross-fertilization between researchers with different observational and theoretical backgrounds to further our understanding of star formation as observed across the spectrum.

Joint WISH + First galaxies International Workshop

WISH (Wide-field Infrared Surveyor for High-redshift) is a space science mission concept whose primary goal is to study the first galaxies in the early universe. WISH will be a Japan-led 1.5m telescope equipped with a 900 arcmin2 wide-field, Near-IR, 0.2-0.5arcsec FWHM, camera that would fly by ~2020 in order to conduct unique ultra-deep and wide-area sky surveys in the wavelength range 1-5 micron. A spectroscopic parallel-mode spectrograph (WISHSpec, Integral-Field Unit) in the same Near-IR range is also planned and would be studied in France under the responsibility of LAM. Although the instrument design is still open, with the parallel mode, we could envisage very deep exposure times in spectroscopy over (relatively) wide areas.

Transformational Science in the ALMA Era: Multi-Wavelength Studies of Galaxy Evolution

During the Evolution 2014 Workshop four central themes in the field of galaxy evolution will be explored by bringing together current and future studies with ALMA and from across the electromagnetic spectrum from existing (e.g. VLA/GBT/IRAM/CARMA, HST, Spitzer/Herschel, Chandra/NuStar) as well as future facilities (e.g., JWST, MeerKAT/ASKAP/SKA, LSST, EUCLID, TMT/GMT/EELT, CCAT/LMT).
