Future Directions in Galaxy Cluster Surveys

Future Directions in Galaxy Cluster Surveys

The stage is set for an exciting future driven by a host of new galaxy cluster surveys. The aim of this conference is to offer a moment of exchange, where simulators, modelers and observers can efficiently define key research directions to fully exploit the rich datasets of present and future galaxy cluster surveys.

Solar and Stellar Flares

Solar and Stellar Flares

This conference will be held in honour of Prof. Zdeněk Švestka who awarded by a special medal for his great work for the Solar Physics journal. Topics to be discussed will be in the following areas: Flare processes in the corona Response of the lower atmosphere to flare processes Flare-related CMEs Stellar flares New instrumentation for flare research Conference…

New Windows on Massive Stars

New Windows on Massive Stars

The important outputs of mass, momentum and energy of massive stars strongly modify their environment and make them key agents in the evolution of galaxies during the whole of cosmic history. Their high luminosities make them objects detectable at far distances in the Universe. Massive stars are thus important probes for studying star formation at…

IAU308: The Zel'dovich' Universe – Genesis and Growth of the Cosmic Web

IAU308: The Zel'dovich' Universe – Genesis and Growth of the Cosmic Web

It will be 100 years since the birth of Yakov Zeldovich, whose seminal work paved the way towards a theoretical understanding of the complex weblike patterns that have been observed in our Universe. Impressive progress of observational studies, of modelling and simulations and of analytical work has led to revolutionary new insights into the structure and…

The 2014 XXL consortium meeting

The 2014 XXL consortium meeting

The XXL survey is the largest XMM programme to date (more than 6 Ms) and aims at a detailed mapping of the structure growth out to a redshift of ~ 1.5 - 4 over two areas of 25 deg2 each. The XMM observations were completed in May 2013. Somme 500 clusters of galaxies and 30 000 AGNs are expected…

Science Results from Pan-STARRS1

Science Results from Pan-STARRS1

The Pan-STARRS1 Science Consortium has carried out a multi-color survey of the entire sky north of declination -30 degrees for more than 3 years using the Pan-STARRS1 telescope in Hawaii. The observing mission formally ends in March 2014 and the project is planning to release the data publicly in 2015 through the STScI archive. This…
