4. LASSIE : an Initial Training Network (ITN) in the field of solid state astrochemistry within European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme

The European Commission has recently approved under the Framework 7 Programme the ITN-People network LASSIE ; a large interdisciplinary training network in the field of SOLID STATE ASTROCHEMISTRY established with the goal of addressing issues of relevance to the chemical evolution of the Universe. From 01/02/2010 and over the next 4 years, a consortium of 13 experimental and theoretical groups with 5 industrial and 1 outreach partners, led by Professor Martin McCoustra (Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK), will supply training and research opportunities for up to 28 Early Stage Researchers (ESR, PhD students) and 4 Experienced Researchers (ER, Post-doctoral research assistants) at the following host sites :
- Prof. M.R.S. McCoustra, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK
- Dr. L. Hornekaer, Aarhus University, Denmark
- Prof. J. L. Lemaire, Paris Observatory, France
- Prof. H. Zacharias, University of Münster, Germany
- Dr. C. Jäger, Max Plank Gesellschaft, Germany
- Dr. M. E. Palumbo, National Institute for Astrophysics, Catania, Italy
- Prof. H. Linnartz, Leiden University, Netherlands
- Prof. D. Chakarov, Chalmers University, Gothenburg, Sweden
- Prof. G. Nyman, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
- Prof. S. D. Price, University College London, UK
- Prof. N. J. Mason, The Open University, UK
- Dr. T. A. Field, Queen’s University, Belfast, UK
- Dr. H. J. Fraser, Strathclyde University, Glasgow, UK

To qualify as an Early Stage Researcher (ESR), candidates must have obtained a Masters Degree or equivalent in Chemistry, Physics, Astronomy or a related Engineering field within the past four years and demonstrate experience in experimental physics, chemical physics, physical chemistry, surface science, computational chemistry and astronomy, or theoretical astrochemistry and astrophysics. Applicants considering themselves as Experienced Researchers (ER) must already possess a Doctoral Degree or have at least 4 years of research experience (full time equivalent) since obtaining their Masters Degree. They must also have relevant expertise in one or more of the indicated areas.

The consortium is immediately hiring the first tranche of researchers with 14 ESR and 3 ER positions available NOW. Applications may be considered up to a final deadline of 30th November 2010 for appointment in 2011 of a further 14 ESR and 1 ER positions. All nationalities are eligible to apply but candidates have to fulfil the EU mobility criteria and will be required to work at a site outside their home country.

A more detailed description of the positions available at each host is available by email application to lassie@hw.ac.uk. Potential candidates are requested to obtain this document before sending a detailed application letter, curriculum vitae and contact details of two referees to the relevant local principal investigator.

5. International X-ray Observatory (IXO) : Science Meeting, 27 - 29 April 2010, Paris

The next IXO conference will be held in Paris from April 27th (start at 2 pm) until April 29th (up to about 4 pm). In particular, during the conference it is planned to :
- update the community on the status of the IXO mission following the decadal survey activities and the on-going studies in Europe
- review/(update wherever necessary) the science goals of IXO
- gather any further science topics that could be addressed by IXO within current payload baseline
- discuss synergies with other planned or proposed facilities, e.g. JWST, EUCLID, SPICA, ELTs, ALMA, SKA, ....
- discuss the timetable for presenting IXO to the Cosmic Vision down selection process, and ensuring feedback from the community to support IXO through the mission selection.

The web site is open for registration

Looking forward to meeting you in Paris. Didier Barret, on behalf of the LOC and the IXO international study coordination group.

6. RAPPEL : IAU Symposium 271 - "Astrophysical Dynamics : From Stars to Galaxies", 21-25 June 2010, Nice

We would like to draw your attention again to International Astronomical Union (IAU) Symposium 271 on "Astrophysical Dynamics : From Stars to Galaxies" to be held at the Grand Hotel Aston, Nice, France, June 21-25, 2010.

Full registration, abstract submission, and travel grant applications are NOW OPEN at this URL (see below).

The purpose of IAU symposium 271 is to improve our understanding of nonlinear dynamical processes in astrophysical systems by promoting interactions, discussions and collaborations among researchers in diverse but complementary disciplines. Particular attention will be given to those processes with a universal character, ubiquitously present in a great variety of astronomical objects, from stars like our Sun to galaxies. Examples include turbulence, hydromagnetic dynamo action, fluid and magnetic instabilities, and highly nonlinear coupling across a wide range of temporal and spatial scales. Today, understanding the behaviour and evolution of such systems requires accurate, high resolution, multi-wavelength astronomical observations coupled with detailed theoretical modeling and analysis. In particular, high-performance numerical simulations have become an essential and revealing tool for assessing the subtle and often surprising behavior of highly nonlinear systems. Thus, this symposium will provide a unique opportunity for researchers to share their expertise and perspectives on the common nonlinear dynamical processes that underlie complex astrophysical phenomena.

This conference will also be a fitting occasion to celebrate the long and illustrious career of Professor Juri Toomre and his upcoming 70th birthday. We will remember Juri’s many successes during the conference and celebrate with a banquet in his honor.

(Conference co-sponsored by the French CNRS and CEA, ESF-Astrosim, Observatory of Cote d’Azur, Conseil Général Alpes-Maritimes and the European Research Council through ERC grant STARS2)

Overview of Major Topics :
- The Sun and stars
- Galaxies
- Astrophysical turbulence
- Cosmic magnetism
- High performance numerical simulation in astrophysics
- Nonlinear dynamics
- Stellar observational constraints : Helio- and asteroseismology, magnetism, rotation and abundances

7. Workshop on Acoustic and Radio EeV Neutrino detection Activities (ARENA), 29 June - 2 July 2010, Université de Nantes, Nantes

Dear SF2A member, we are pleased to announce that the next workshop on Acoustic and Radio EeV Neutrino detection Activities (ARENA) will be held from Tuesday, June 29, 2010 (2 pm), to Friday, July 2 (noon), at the Université de Nantes, France.

ARENA 2010 is the 4th edition of the workshop on the detection of ultra-high energy neutrinos and cosmic rays via radio or acoustic methods. The workshop will bring together theorists and experimentalists to present the latest and most relevant theoretical and experimental results. The aim of the conference will be to review the state of the art of the technique as well as of the theoretical predictions of fluxes, and to discuss future prospects in this field. The sessions of the conference will be held in the morning and afternoon, structured around short presentations ( 15’) and longer invited presentations ( 30’), followed by breaks of questions and answers. Poster presentations will be possible during each coffee break on the conference venue. The publication of the proceedings by Elsevier is envisaged. The length of the manuscripts will be 8 pages for 30’ oral presentations and 4 pages for all other contributions. We invite you to submit a paper/abstract to the conference, and to distribute this announcement to any of your mailing contact. Further conference details will be available from February 1st, 2010, only on Web at this URL

Important deadlines are :
- Abstract submission : February 1st to May 1st, 2010.
- Notification to the authors : May 15th, 2010.
- Deadline for registration : June 1st, 2010.
