Galaxies meet GRBs

Galaxies meet GRBs

We want to bring together two different communities that have more in common than they think. Birth, life and death of massive stars are a crucial part of every galaxies' evolution at some point in its history. The chemical composition of the stellar populations in the galaxy is linked to the properties of the massive…

MICRA 2013

MICRA 2013

The MICRA workshop will bring together researchers in nuclear and neutrino physics, nuclear astrophyiscs, and in numerical modeling of relativistic astrophysical phenomena such as the mergers of neutron stars and core-collapse supernovae.The overarching goal of the MICRA workshop is to improve the treatment of microscopic physics (neutrino-matter interactions, equations of state, thermonuclear reaction rates) in…

Studying Galaxy Evolution: a Galaxy Zoo conference

Studying Galaxy Evolution: a Galaxy Zoo conference

How do galaxies form and evolve? What shapes galaxies? What are the roles of supermassive black holes and bars in galaxy evolution? Nature and nurture both play important roles in galaxy evolution and the aims of this meeting are to: (i) further develop our understanding of the many underlying physical processes that are responsible for…

Simulating the evolution of the early Universe

Alcuni fisici dell'Università di Chicago hanno simulato in laboratorio le fasi evolutive primordiali della storia dell'Universo riproducendo in parte la caratteristica struttura della radiazione cosmica di fondo grazie ad un esperimento che utilizza atomi di cesio a bassissime temperature in una apposita camera in cui è stato prodotto il vuoto. "This is the first time…

Second UK-Ukraine meeting on Solar Physics and Space Science

Second UK-Ukraine meeting on Solar Physics and Space Science

The meeting will cover a broad range of aspects of solar physics, space science and solar-terrestrial relations. We aim to include every side of solar and space research, including observations, theory, and numerical modelling. The main idea behind the meeting is to treat the entire solar-terrestrial domain as one system, rather than each region independently.…
