The Galactic Center Black Hole Laboratory

The Galactic Center Black Hole Laboratory

This event has spawned great activities in observing the Galactic Center covering the entire electromagnetic spectrum from radio, via infrared to X-ray wavelengths using telescopes across the world. Hence, in Granada we look forward to conclude the presumably fruitful research session on SgrA*. While the conference mainly aims at a first attempt to summarize this year's…

Deconstructing Galaxies: Structure and Morphology in the Era of Large Surveys

Deconstructing Galaxies: Structure and Morphology in the Era of Large Surveys

The study of the structure and morphology of galaxies is one of the major tools astronomers have to address how galaxies form and evolve. Recent progress in the field has allowed for a boost in our understanding on the properties of different structural components in nearby galaxies, as well as in galaxies at intermediate redshifts…

Planetary Systems of our Sun and other Stars, and the Future of Space Astronomy

Planetary Systems of our Sun and other Stars, and the Future of Space Astronomy

This symposium is the first of a new series of events initiated by COSPAR. It will be held every two years in a different area of the world. This first Symposium aims at promoting space and astronomical research on the theme of “Planetary Systems of our Sun and other Stars, and the Future of Space…

The Emergence of Disk Galaxies

The Emergence of Disk Galaxies

Recent multi-wavelength observations suggest that the first sizable disk galaxies emerged at redshifts 2-3, when the Universe was most actively forming stars.  These disk galaxies look remarkably different than their local counterparts, being more turbulent, clumpier, and forming stars several orders of magnitude faster.  This focused, mid-sized workshop will bring together multi-wavelength observers and theorists…

No exotic dark particles from the first LUX experiment

Dopo 90 giorni di attesa, gli esperimenti hanno mostrato che LUX (Large Underground Xenon) rappresenta il rivelatore più sensibile per lo studio della materia scura. Nonostante i primi risultati non abbiano permesso di rivelare particelle esotiche essi forniscono alcune indicazioni escludendo alcune ipotesi. Ora i ricercatori si concentreranno per migliorare la sensibilità del rivelatore che…
