La XIIIème école de Cosmologie, intitulée "Le CMB de A à Z — Enjeux et défis du CMB comme sonde cosmologique" se tiendra la semaine du 12 novembre 2017 à l’Institut d’Etudes Scientifiques de Cargèse (Corse). C’est une école thématique du CNRS, elle s’adresse aux chercheurs, aux post-doctorants et aux doctorants, en priorité ceux travaillant dans des unités CNRS ou associées. La clôture des inscriptions est imminente, veuillez réagir au plus tôt si vous êtes intéressé(e).

This 2.5 day workshop will include a mixture of presentations about :
the promise of JWST for solar system science,
specifics on observer planning tools and observatory capabilities,
hands-on training and Q&A with the planning tools.
Observations of solar system targets approved for guaranteed-time observers (GTOs) and through the Early Release Science (ERS) program will be summarized. The workshop is timed to support JWST Cycle 1 General Observations (GO) proposals, which are expected to be due in March 2018.
Registration is free, the deadline has been extended to December 1st.

Exoplanetology has experienced extraordinary developments, and is now a mature and particularly dynamic research field of astrophysics. The various detection techniques such as radial velocities, transit, microlensing, direct imaging, timing or astrometry, provided thousands of planet detections. The characterization of these systems has also improved, and now reaches the details of the orbital parameters or the physics and chemistry of planetary atmospheres.
The 2nd Rencontres du Vietnam on Exoplanetary Science will offer over five days a fruitful meeting of observers involved in various ground- and space-based programs with modelers and theoreticians. The conference will raise news observations and new models to improve our comprehension and knowledges of exoplanets, their formation, their evolution. It will expand exchanges, interactions, and collaborations between scientists from different parts of the world.
The conference will consist of plenary sessions for oral presentations, including review talks and contributions on more specialized topics, as well as posters. The conference will be preceded by a two-day international school (Feb. 24-25) for students involved in those topics, with instructors and teachers chosen among the conference participants.
Important dates :
December 1st, 2017 : deadline for abstract submissions and financial support applications
February 1st, 2018 : deadline for registrations

The aim of this session is to encourage further dialogue and promote knowledge transfer between astronomers with strong atomic and molecular data needs and those who produce this data from laboratory measurements and calculations. We hope this will foster new collaborations for the future, which, through targeted measurements and calculations, will accelerate the rate at which astronomers’ needs can be met.
Talks and posters will focus on four main areas :
Data requirements of astronomers
Laboratory-measured atomic and molecular data
We encourage all astronomers involved in the ongoing spectroscopic surveys such as Gaia-ESO, APOGEE or GALAH or in future ones such as WEAVE, 4MOST or DESI to attend in order to explain their data needs.
The emphasis throughout the special session will remain on knowledge transfer ; with astronomers highlighting their data needs, and spectroscopists and theorists presenting new data of astronomical interest and the capabilities of their facilities for future collaborations.

The ISM Jam will be finally resuming its activity on Friday, the 10th of November, at 10 am at the Physics Department of ENS, room L378/380. Guest speakers will be François Boulanger (Insights on interstellar magnetic fields from the decompositon of dust polarization in E and B-modes) and Jeremy Neveu (On the statistics of the polarized submillimetre emission maps from thermal dust in the turbulent, magnetized, diffuse ISM).
