International Meteor Conference 2014

The International Meteor Organization (IMO) was founded in 1988 and has more than 250 members now. IMO was created in response to an ever growing need for international cooperation of meteor amateur work. The collection of meteor observations by several methods from all around the world ensures the comprehensive study of meteor showers and their…

Magnetism and Variability in O stars

For more than 30 years, spectroscopic observations from space have shown that wind variability in massive OB stars is a widespread phenomenon. This variability is not strictly periodic, but cyclic (like sunspots) with a dominant quasi period that scales with the estimated rotation period. The underlying cause or trigger of this variability is not known.…

The 10° INTEGRAL Workshop "A Synergistic View of the High Energy Sky"

The goal of this workshop is to present and discuss (via invited and contributed talks and posters) the latest results obtained in the field of high-energy astrophysics using the International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory INTEGRAL, and place these results in the context of other operational space-based missions, such as Swift, Fermi, AGILE, NuSTAR, and Maxi as…

Evolving Galaxies in Evolving Environments

The programme of the conference will cover the following topics: Evolving environments: clusters, groups, density field, clustering, dark matter environment, and how they depend globally on redshift) Central galaxies: links between accretion, bulge growth, star formation & AGN feedback, including BCGs. Multiphase gas and environment: observations and simulations of gas budget vs halo mass, hot…
