Upcoming Conferences and Meetings

GaiaUnlimited Community Workshop

  • Start: Sep 13, 2022
  • End: Sep 15, 2022
  • Location: Max Planck Institute for Astronomy
The workshop's theme is the Gaia selection function and how to use it. This event will be a three-day workshop and unconference, where we will discuss and learn from each other about the finer details of the Gaia selection function and how to build and use it in various contexts. Participants will be working with the new GaiaUnlimited selection function tools, for which we will assist as needed, and we will improve them based on the feedback we'll receive. We hope this workshop could lead to some new collaborations or initial joint studies. We want to dedicate a significant amount of time to unconference sessions and informal discussions. [more]

ASTRO HACK WEEK 2022

  • Start: Oct 17, 2022
  • End: Oct 21, 2022
  • Location: Max Planck Institute for Astronomy
AstroHackWeek is, in part, a summer school. The mornings will offer lectures and exercises covering essential skills for working effectively with large astronomical datasets. Past years have seen topics such as machine learning, Bayesian inference, frequentist statistics, databases, numerical Python, and visualization. [more]

Past Conferences and Meetings

The Early Phase of Star Formation EPoS 2020 - Insights from Dynamics

EPoS 2022
  • Start: Apr 24, 2022 17:00
  • End: Apr 29, 2022 14:00
  • Location: Schloss Ringberg
  • Host: Jürgen Steinacker
  • Contact: stein@mpia.de
EPoS meetings cover all aspects, but EPoS 2022 was designed to make an effort to highlight the impact of dynamics.Some of the questions to be raised are: What are the key observational parameters, do we have the necessary tools to derive the physical quantities, how realistic can we trace the dynamical aspect in simulations and what can we learn from the evolution of the momentum vector field?
