26–30 April 2021 The Quantum & The Gravity 2021


The aim of the international workshop “The Quantum & The Gravity 2021″ is to provide a stimulating occasion of discussion on our current understanding of Nature at the fundamental level and on the interplay between quantum and gravitational physics. To properly address these delicate topics, foundations of quantum mechanics, quantum field theory and quantum information as well as quantum aspects of black holes and phenomenology of quantum gravity will be covered throughout the period of the workshop.

Different schools of thought will be brought together so as to let everyone benefit from fruitful debates and possibly develop novel insights and a critical viewpoint. All these inspiring ideas will be summarized and contained within the Special Issue (SI) that is associated with the conference. Therefore, the main subjects that will be discussed in the articles belonging to the SI are precisely the ones that lie at the heart of the online workshop.

9–13 August 2021 IAU Symposium 365: Dynamics of Solar and Stellar Convection Zones and Atmospheres

Moscow, Russian Federation

The Symposium will bring together solar and stellar physicists investigating the dynamics of convection zones and lower atmospheres. It will be dedicated to observational and theoretical aspects of the hydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics, both global and local, of the solar and stellar convection zones and lower atmospheres with the inclusion of numerical simulations as a particular branch of theoretical research. Specific subjects to be discussed are as follows:

Convection (solar – on different scales – and stellar)
Differential rotation and meridional circulation (both solar and stellar)
Global dynamo (in the Sun and stars; solar-cycle observed patterns and predictions)
Helioseismology and asteroseismology (both global and local; probing subsurface structure and dynamics)
Local processes of magnetic-flux emergence, sunspot and starspot formation (observed patterns of sunspot evolution, small-scale motions, local dynamo)

13 September–17 December 2021 Mathematical and Computational Challenges in the Era of Gravitational Wave Astronomy

Los Angeles, CA, USA


The field of Relativistic Astrophysics has recently witnessed a major revolution with the historical Nobel-Prize-winning observation of Gravitational Waves (GWs) from a binary black hole merger and the first GW observation of the merger of two neutron stars. The latter was followed by electromagnetic detections from the ground and space triggering an unprecedented multi-instrument observational campaign. These detections have led to the beginning of GW astronomy and the era of multi-messenger astrophysics.

The scientific impact of the existing GW observations in fundamental physics, astronomy, astrophysics, nuclear physics, and cosmology is already extraordinary. In the next few years, with the significant increase of available GW data driven by the continuous upgrades of current detectors and by the incorporation of additional GW facilities to the global network, this impact will multiply. Processing and interpreting the anticipated huge number of forthcoming GW detections will pose a significant challenge and will require close interaction between mathematical modelers, waveform developers, numerical relativists, data analysts and theoretical and observational astrophysicists.

On the one hand, progress in multi-messenger astrophysics is driven by observations with increasingly more sensitive telescopes, high-energy neutrino detectors, and GW detectors on Earth and in space. On the other hand, another major element of advance is provided by the theoretical studies of Einstein’s General Relativity equations to explain those observations. Modern theoretical astrophysics relies on mathematical properties of the initial conditions for the evolution of the General Relativity equations and numerical simulations to improve the understanding of the dynamics of astrophysical systems.

The aim of this program is to connect efforts of the mathematical and physical sciences communities to address the latest advances and new challenges on the understanding of multi-messenger astronomy. The IPAM program will comprise four workshops, each addressing a different topic: the generation of catalogs of waveform templates; the discussion of the mathematical modeling of the equations governing strong relativistic systems; parameter estimation of astrophysical sources of gravitational waves; and the state of the art of big data and deep learning techniques for GW data analysis.

14–19 November 2021 Detection and Analysis of Gravitational Waves in the era of Multi-Messenger Astronomy: From Mathematical Modelling to Machine Learning (21w5066)

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Detection and Analysis of Gravitational Waves in the era of Multi-Messenger Astronomy: From Mathematical Modelling to Machine Learning" workshop in Oaxaca, from November 14 to November 19, 2021.

Gravitational-waves are a new way to explore the sky and uncover the Universe’s deepest mysteries. Although the first detection of these "ripples of space-time" is only a few years old, scientists can now harness the potential of gravitational waves in testing Einstein’s General Relativity theory under extreme conditions, helping to understand the origin of matter, and measuring the evolution of the Universe.

Researchers from all around the world are gathering in Oaxaca to discuss recent progress in, and the future of gravitational-wave science. The workshop "Detection and analysis of gravitational waves in the era of multi-messenger astronomy: From mathematical modelling to machine learning", provides a forum, unique in its genre, for discussing new mathematical methods in modelling, detecting, and analyzing gravitational waves, as well as their integration with machine learning, or artificial intelligence.

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station in Banff is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT
