1. Journées “galaxies” du PNCG (20-22 juin 2022, Strasbourg)deadline for submitting an abstract: May 6 2022

The PNCG organises a national conference from 20 to 22 June 2022 in Strasbourg on galaxy formation and evolution, nearby galaxies, and Galactic archeology, the deadline for submitting an abstract being the 6 May 2022.

Website : https://jpncg22.sciencesconf.org/

We particularly encourage researchers funded by the PNCG, students, postdocs, and young researchers in France or with ties to the French community to present their work. We highlight that it is possible for presenters to ask for financial support when registering. Presentations will be in English.

Key themes:

  • Galaxy formation and evolution: first galaxies, statistical properties of galaxies, physics of galaxies, interaction between galaxies and their environment, galaxy groups and clusters
  • Nearby galaxies and Galactic archeology: star formation and the interstellar medium, stellar populations, chemical enrichment and primordial gas, galactic dynamics and dark matter

2. Advanced Euclid School (20 June – 1 July 2022, Les Houches, France)

We are pleased to announce the second Advanced Euclid School that will take place in the French alpine village of Les Houches from June 20th to July 1st 2022.

The goal of the school is to present a wide range of fundamental topics in  modern cosmology to scientists involved in the Euclid project, and to prepare for the demanding analysis that will be required of Euclid data.
The school will review the main theoretical, observational, instrumental and numerical techniques used to analyze various cosmological probes, such as galaxy clustering, weak and strong lensing, cluster cosmology, redshift space distortions and baryon acoustic oscillations.
It will also focus on the complementarities between the major cosmological surveys such as Euclid, Roman, SKA, LSST and CMB experiments.

Preregistration is open until April 15th, and the final confirmation of registration will be given before May after selection of candidates. 

You can find further information concerning the school on the webpage:  https://euclidschool22.sciencesconf.org/

3. atelier “Théorie, Univers et Gravitation” (5-7 octobre 2022, Montpellier)

We are pleased to announce the second edition of the “Theory, Universe, and Gravitation” (TUG) workshop, which will be held in Montpellier on October 5-7, 2022.

Just as its first edition, the goal of this workshop is to have researchers working in French institutes (and close colleagues) and involved in TUG, round to review the current status of theoretical activities on the national level in these topics developed at the frontiers of different fields. This workshop is meant to be a yearly occasion to present and collect the recent developments in these topics from different perspectives, and to bring together communities from theoretical physics that barely meet otherwise. Again, we encourage the participation of young researchers, PhD students or postdocs, and will allocate a fraction of our funding to help them attend.

The scientific program is currently under preparation. An indico website is already available for registration and abstract submission (no registration fees):

Check the dates! 
More details about the scientific program will be sent later. 
Please feel free to contact us for any further information.

4. “Origin, growth and feedback of black holes in dwarf galaxies” (Sept. 12-16 2022, San Sebastian, Spain)We are pleased to announce the meeting “Origin, growth and feedback of black holes in dwarf galaxies”, which will take place at the Miramar Palace in San Sebastian, Spain, September 12-16, 2022.

The meeting was originally planned for September 2020, and had to be postponed because of the pandemic.

During the conference we will review our current observational and theoretical understanding of AGN/BHs in dwarfs, and discuss the prospects for advances in the field. We plan to combine review and contributed talks with structured discussion sessions.

Due to space constraints of the venue, the meeting will be limited to 60 participants. We are also looking into the possibility of remote participation.
The pre-registration and abstract submission are now open and will be available until April 30th (http://dwarfbh2022.dipc.org/abstract-submission)

More info can be found in the website of the meeting: http://dwarfbh2022.dipc.org/

5. Last chance to register for the Athena School on X-ray spectroscopy (20-24 June 2022, Toulouse, France)

Registration for the first edition of the Athena School: “The Universe in the era of spatially resolved, high-resolution, X-ray spectroscopy” will close on 30 April. This CNRS thematic school will be held from the 20th to the 24th of June 2022 in Toulouse, France. It is open to the whole French astronomical community, regardless of prior experie nce in high energy astrophysics.

Athena (Advanced Telescope for High-Energy Astrophysics) is ESA’s next generation X-ray observatory. It is the second large-class mission of its Cosmic Vision programme and the successor of current missions, ESA’s XMM-Newton and NASA’s Chandra. With its two focal plane instruments, the X-IFU (X-ray Integral Field Unit) and the WFI (Wide Field Imager), Athena will unveil the physics of the Hot and Energetic Universe through spatially resolved high-resolution X-ray spectroscopic observations. Athena will address two fundamental questions in astrophysics: 1) How did matter come together over time to form the Universe as we observe it today? and 2) How do black holes form, grow and shape the Universe?  

The lessons and practicals will cover the whole breadth of Athena’s scientific reach i) the dynamical assembly of clusters of galaxies, the chemical enrichment of the Universe; ii) the search for the most distant super-massive black holes, the physical mechanisms coupling black holes and their environment; iii) the life cycle of stars from the chemistry of the intergalactic medium, the physics of stellar winds and of supernova remnant, to the endpoints of stellar evolution, namely compact objects.
The aim of the school is to provide participants (staff, postdocs, PhD students, etc.) with knowledge of the scientific objectives of Athena, foster collaboration in the early stage of their careers, stimulate inter- and multi-disciplinary collaborations, and develop their skills in high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy. No specific background in X-ray astronomy is required to attend the school.

Registration for this event is open on this page: https://fs6.formsite.com/XIFU/athena-school/index.htmlThe deadline is 30 April 2022. Each application will be reviewed by the Scientific Organisation Committee.
