AXRO2013, Astronomical X-Ray Optics

AXRO2013, Astronomical X-Ray Optics

The AXRO workshop is held under the auspices of the rector of the Czech Technical University prof. Havlicek. AXRO 2013 in Prague is International Workshop on Astronomical X-Ray Optics focused on presentation and discussion of recent and future technologies for future X-ray astronomy missions. One session is focused on astrophysical aspects of X-ray telescopes/satellites in which…

Astroinformatics 2013: Knowledge From Data

Astroinformatics 2013: Knowledge From Data

Astroinformatics is an exciting new discipline that has emerged at the intersection of astronomy/astrophysics and applied computer science and engineering, arising from the need to address the challenges and opportunities of exponential growth of data volumes, rates, and complexity from next-generation telescopes. Astroinformatics is e-Science astronomy, making the transition to a data-driven, computationally enabled science…

The Metre Wavelength Sky

The Metre Wavelength Sky

This conference is being held at NCRA-TIFR, Pune, from December 9-13 2013, to mark 50 years of radio astronomy research at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), as well as 10 years of operation of the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) as an international observatory. The main aim of the conference is to bring together…

Exoplanets and Disks: Their Formation and Diversity II

Exoplanets and Disks: Their Formation and Diversity II

Protoplanetary disks around young stars are the sites of planetary formation. Their detailed information has been obtained by recent high spatial resolution infrared and optical observations from both ground and space, and wide varieties of disk morphology and disk composition are uncovered. At longer wavelengths, ALMA has started its early science operation and will explore…

First evidence of Higgs boson decay to fermions

I fisici del CERN che lavorano all'esperimento ATLAS hanno pubblicato in un comunicato stampa i dati preliminari relativi alla prima evidenza del decadimento del bosone di Higgs in due particelle tau che appartengono ad un gruppo di particelle subatomiche, chiamate fermioni. Questo risultato è stato ottenuto con un livello di confidenza pari a 4,1 sigma…
