5) ISSS Course "The Polar Upper Atmosphere: from Science to Operational Issues". 17-21 September 2018 - Extension deadline for application
The International School of Space Science of the Consorzio Interuniversitario per la Fisica Spaziale organizes a Course on “The Polar Upper Atmosphere: from Science to Operational Issues”, to be held in L’Aquila, Italy, 17-21 September 2018, directed by G. De Franceschi, M. Mendillo, C. Mitchell.  

The goal of the school is to foster excitement and encourage involvement of the next generation of space researchers in studies of the geospace environment of Polar Regions.  The importance of these regions is rapidly growing due to modern society’s dependence on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) services and products, strongly affected by ionospheric variability at high latitudes. Topics will focus on the infrastructures for multi-instrument monitoring, data management from sub auroral to polar latitudes, the need for specialized models of the upper atmosphere, and the development of mitigation algorithms to improve GNSS services and products. The school is mainly addressed to graduate and post-graduate students with enthusiastic interest on this topic. Students-teams will be organized through an “inside team building” activity scheduled on the first day of the school.  This initial activity will formulate, under the supervision of experts, the “first iteration” of student-led project proposals. The establishment of the student-teams aims to both stimulate the interaction among the new generation of scientists from different countries and furnish the preliminary tools to build successful project proposals.  On the final day the students-teams will present their project results and participate in their evaluation by the School Program and Organization Committees.

3) Summer school/workshop "Microsatellites in planetary and atmospheric research", Tartu, Estonia, 6-11 August, 2018

The use of micro- and nanosatellites in space missions have been one of the hot topics in space research and space technology during the last years. As opposed to traditional spacecraft missions which can take decades to prepare and may cost up to billions of Euros, microsatellites (<100 kg) and nanosatellites (<10 kg) offer a quick, low-cost alternative for atmospheric and space research, which is ideal for early career people. However, in order to plan missions involving such small satellites successfully, intensive interaction and cooperation between scientists and space technologists are necessary, which is still lacking in some potential key applications. The early career scientist workshop/summer school "Microsatellites in planetary and atmospheric research" will take place from 6 to 11 August 2018 at the University of Tartu. It aims to:

Give participant an overview into the most pivotal research questions in planetary and atmospheric sciences
Highlight the possible potential of microsatellites in those areas
Explore novel applications of microsatellites in a multitude of different fields including astronomy, planetary and atmospheric sciences, geosciences and astrobiology
Foster the interaction between space researchers and technologists
Allow participants to start the design and planning of new space missions
Contribute to the training of a new generation of space researchers
Participants will also have the possibility to display their own research results in a poster session. Furthermore, a half-day excursion to interesting sites in the area (Ice Age Museum, Lake Peipus) and a walk in Tartu are included as a social programme. Accommodations and meal costs are very low.

The event is aimed for students and early career scientists and open to applicants at all ages from all nationalities. Detailed information about the summer school and the application procedure (deadline 31 May 2018) can be found at the website:

http://www.nordicastrobiology.net/Tartu2018


4) workshop "Highlights and prospects for numerical astrophysics in France”,  Lyon from Oct. 8 to Oct. 11, 2018.

We are happy to announce the opening of registrations to the workshop "Highlights and prospects for numerical astrophysics in France”, which will be held in Lyon from Oct. 8 to Oct. 11, 2018.

All details are available on the website : https://astrosimconf.sciencesconf.org/
The deadline for registration and abstract submission is July 15th.

Rational:

High Performance Computing (HPC) has become an essential tool of all fields of astronomy and astrophysics. In particular, numerical simulations have become the tool of choice to carry out quantitative theoretical investigations, which take into acount the full complexity of astrophysical objects and their contexts, and reach a level of precision which matches the ever more demanding level of detail achieved with observations. Today, numerical simulations of astrophysical objects have become the principal vector of the dialog between observations and theory, and they have reached a quality which allows us to use them for a direct interpretation of observations (from large-scale cosmological surveys to observations of atmospheric phenomena on the surface of giant planets).

As observations, simulations require high-performance instruments: super-computers. In less than 10 years, there has been a spectacular increase of the gigantic computing power that is now available to researchers, both at the national (through GENCI) and european levels (trough PRACE). This is accompanied by profound evolutions of the methods used by specialists of numerical simulations. More and more research projects are now performed in close collaborations with software engineers. With exascale computers coming soon, such a professionalism of high performance computing (HPC) is expected to become more and more frequent. Like the other communities in France, astrophysicists must prepare for that transition.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers working in France in all fields of numerical astrophysics, along with representatives of the HPC infrastructure at the regional, national, and European level, and key players in the forthcoming ExaScale HPC. Invited presentations from astronomers will both highlight astrophysical results and propose a reflexion on the evolutions of their work. Other invited presentations will present the expected evolution of the HPC landscape in France and Europe, both in terms of organisation and of technologies. A large number of contributed talks will complement the program.

7) conference "The Cosmic Cycle of Dust and Gas in the Galaxy: from Old to Young Stars". July 9th to 13th, Quy Nhon, Vietnam.
The registration for the conference "The Cosmic Cycle of Dust and Gas in the Galaxy: from Old to Young Stars » is open. This conference will take place from July 9th to July 13th, 2018 at the International Centre for Interdisciplinary Science and Education (ICISE) which is located in the beautiful coastal city of Quy Nhon in central Vietnam.

https://cosmiccycle2018.sciencesconf.org/

Organized in the framework of "Rencontres du Vietnam", a conference on the evolution of gas and dust from evolved to young stars will bring astronomers working on the circumstellar environment of evolved stars and star (and planet) forming regions together with planetologists working on the origin of the solar system. In July 2016, in the same cycle of conferences, “Blowing In the Wind” had addressed issues related to the relevant dynamics. In July 2017, another conference of the same cycle, “Star Formation in Different Environments” focused on how stars form. The July 2018 conference will be dedicated to the physico-chemistry and evolution of gas and dust. It will review state-of-the-art knowledge of the molecular and dust components of envelopes and shells surrounding Supernovae, AGB stars and planetary nebulae as well as diffuse, cold and giant molecular clouds. Special sessions will be dedicated to the origin and evolution of matter in the solar system: meteorites, Rosetta, etc. Recent observations, in particular using ALMA, are the source of major progress in the study of the cosmic cycle of the Galaxy making such a conference very timely.

2) Session "Organic Matter in Space" @ EPSC 2018, 16–21 September 2018, Berlin - abstract deadline 16 mai

 

Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite the world-wide community of planetary scientists working on the organic matter to submit an abstract to our session "Organic Matter in Space" that is co-organized between the Small Bodies (SB) and Astrobiology (AB) programme groups.

Resume:

Organic matter was abundant in the protosolar nebula, as attested by the wide range of organic compounds in the primitive bodies of our solar system, such as comets and carbonaceous chondrites. These organic compounds were delivered to the early Earth and may have played a role in the emergence of life. However, the origin of this organic matter remains debated. Is it synthesized in the protosolar nebula and/or inherited from the interstellar medium?
 
This session focuses on the organic matter origin and evolution in astrophysical environments and on the connection that could exist between the organic matter of the interstellar medium and the compounds detected in primitive bodies of the solar system.  

This session invites communications on experimental, theoretical and observational studies related to the origin of organic matter in the primitive bodies, such as: a) detection and evolution of organic compounds in the interstellar medium, b) characterization and evolution of the organic matter in primitive bodies, c) distribution of organic matter in the protosolar disk, d) observation of organic matter in planetary surfaces.

The session will consist of Oral and Poster contributions.

You may see all deadlines & milestones of the conference at the following website:https://www.epsc2018.eu/information/deadlines_and_milestones.html

Please forward this message to colleagues who may be interested.

We look forward to seeing you in Berlin.

With best wishes,

Vassilissa Vinogradoff, Grégoire Danger, Laurent Remusat.

Le sujet de thèse s'intéresse à déterminer le lien qui peut exister entre la glace initiale, les composés organiques volatils qui subliment lors du réchauffement de cette même glace préalablement irradiée (photons UV, électrons, ions), et les résidus organiques qui se forment après désorption de ces composés volatils. Lier ces trois phases est un élément essentiel pour comprendre les processus chimiques qui se déroulent lors de l'évolution de ces glaces. Par ailleurs, la compréhension de l'interaction glace/gaz/matière organique réfractaire permettra de définir à terme les méthodologies analytiques nécessaires qui pourront être proposées pour de futures missions spatiales ayant pour objectifs l'analyse de la matière organique présente dans l'environnement de ces objets interplanétaires. Nous pourrons déterminer par exemple en quoi une analyse de la phase gazeuse peut amener des informations sur la composition de la surface d’objets astrophysiques et quelle pourrait en être les limites.

Nous appuierons de plus nos recherches sur quatre outils analytiques déjà développés pour le spatial (spectroscopie infrarouge et  GC-MS), ou en cours de développement (orbitrap et HPLC). La caractérisation de l'altération des glaces par des irradiations VUV, d’ions ou d’électrons, suivie d'un réchauffement se fait in situ par spectrométrie infrarouge. L'analyse des composés organiques volatils se fait par GC-orbitrap à partir d'un dispositif spécialement développé à cet effet. L'analyse des résidus se fait par spectrométrie de masse très haute résolution (orbitrap) et par UHPLC-orbitrap. Ainsi à la fin de cette thèse nous déterminerons la faisabilité d’unifier ces quatre outils au sein d’une mission spatiale ayant pour objectif scientifique l’analyse de la matière organique au sein d’objets interplanétaires ou à la surface de satellites glacés. Ces informations seront essentielles pour le design de futures missions spatiales proposées par la LAM, et pour venir enrichir les modèles d’évolution de la matière au sein des corps du système solaire.
