13 September 2012 - 14 September 2012
ESO has recently released an Instrumentation Roadmap for the E-ELT that foresees a high-resolution spectrograph either as Instrument Nr.4 or Nr.5. The optimal balance of the major science drivers for such an instrument need still to be defined. The aim of the workshop is to (further) define the science cases and science requirements for E-ELT HIRES, by bringing together people interested in the matter. This should be a rather informal meeting of about 50 participants.
25 July 2011 - 29 July 2011
Topics to be covered:
- High-redshift galaxy evolution & star formation
- Hydrogen Reionization
- Evolution and enrichment of the early IGM
- High-redshift QSOs and AGN
- Lessons from He II Reionization
- Other probes of the z > 5 Universe
Invited speakers will include: Frank Bertoldi, Jamie Bolton, Rychard Bouwens, Joanna Dunkley, Richard Ellis, Steven Furlanetto, Piero Madau, Matthew McQuinn, Masami Ouchi, Dominik Reichers, Michael Shull, Brian Siana, Chris Willott and Saleem Zaroubi.
2 August 2010 - 6 August 2010
The Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge, summer conference will focus on Dark Matter, bring together recent progress in astrophysical studies, direct and indirect detection experiemnts, and the LHC.
We invite applications for contributed talks and posters to fill an expanded format for the Darkness Visible meeting to be held at the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge (UK). This meeting will bring together particle- and astro - physicists (theoretical, experimental and observational) to present recent advances in our understanding of dark matter at scales ranging from particle pysics to cosmology.
7 September 2009 - 8 September 2009
The aim of this conference is to bring together an outstanding group of young researchers to discuss theoretical and observational progress toward understanding accretion disc physics in Young Stellar Objects, compact binaries, and galactic nuclei.
