There will be one Symposium (IAUS 314 Young Stars and Planets Near the Sun) which will take place outside the General Assembly, in May at the Georgia State University in Atlanta,…

34th International Cosmic Ray Conference

The 34th International Cosmic Ray Conference (ICRC) will be held from July 30 to August 6, 2015, in The Hague, The Netherlands. It is an important and large conference in the field of Astroparticle Physics. The ICRC covers: cosmic-ray physics, solar and heliospheric physics, gamma-ray astronomy, neutrino astronomy, and dark matter physics. The conference poster…

Frontiers in Radio Astronomy

Echoing the first FRA meeting in 2012, we are excited to announce the second international science symposium "Frontiers in Radio Astronomy" to be held in Guiyang, China between July 29th and 31st, 2015.  This meeting will focus on most recent development in radio astronomy and to explore the promises of FAST early science operation. It…

Mocking the Universe

In the coming era of LSST, PanSTARRS, WFIRST, Euclid, ALMA, ELTs, JWST, and other facilities, we want to know: What science can we learn by injecting more astrophysics into mock catalogs, and how can we use mock data to maximize the science output of real data? (altro…)

Davide vs Golia, versione cosmica

Quando due galassie di diverse taglie arrivano a scontrarsi, quella più grande blocca la formazione stellare di quella più piccola. E' quanto emerge da uno studio recente, pubblicato su Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, effettuato su più di 20.000 galassie interagenti. (altro…)

Un'alleanza cosmica per creare un 'buco-nero-scopio'

Gli osservatori spaziali Integral, Fermi e Swift hanno unito le proprie forze per sfruttare il potere d'ingrandimento creato da una lente cosmica con l'obiettivo di esplorare un buco nero supermassiccio che risiede nel nucleo di una galassia attiva denominato PKS 1830-211. I risultati di questo studio sono pubblicati su Nature Physics. (altro…)
