Upcoming Conferences and Meetings

Physics of Star Formation: From Galactic scales to protostellar disks

HHSF2022
  • Start: Dec 6, 2022
  • End: Dec 9, 2022
  • Location: Haus der Astronomie
  • Host: Henrik Beuther
The meeting will concentrate on the physical and chemical processes taking place over a broad range of scales, from extragalactic to individual star-forming regions, cores as well as protostellar disks. Evolutionary stages from the initial conditions for star formation to the end of the main accretion phase will be covered. [more]

Theory meets Observations

  • Start: Dec 13, 2022
  • End: Dec 16, 2022
  • Location: International Academic Forum Heidelberg
Given the immense amount of information that can be gained from cloud-scale (~100pc) resolution multi-wavelength datasets on nearby galaxies like those provided by the PHANGS (Physics at High Angular resolution in Nearby GalaxieS) survey and well as the tremendous progress made in simulating the star formation process in nearby galaxies at pc resolution, it seems timely to bring together experts from both the theoretical and observational side to discuss how to answer pressing open question related to the physics of the star formation process (including interstellar medium (ISM)).

Past Conferences and Meetings

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]

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

EPoS 2022
  • Start: Apr 24, 2022 05:00 PM (Local Time Germany)
  • End: Apr 29, 2022 02:00 PM
  • 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?
