1. Nouveau site web du PNPS

Chères et chers collègues

C’est avec plaisir que nous vous annonçons l’ouverture du nouveau site web du PNPS. Un immense merci à son concepteur, Fabrice Martins !

Vous y trouverez de nombreuses informations utiles à la vie de la communauté stellaire. N’hésitez pas à nous communiquer (via la rubrique "Contact" les nouvelles (résultats scientifiques, annonces d’ateliers, etc) que vous souhaitez y publier. Bien entendu la liste de diffusion forum-etoiles reste active pour poster vos messages aux abonnés.

2. Programme Henri Poincaré Junior, 1ère session 2011

Le Programme Henri Poincaré Junior de l’Association pour le Développement International de l’Observatoire de Nice (ADION) est destiné aux étudiants en master 2 ou en doctorat (ou équivalent) qui souhaitent effectuer un séjour scientifique dans l’un des laboratoires de l’Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur (OCA, http://www.oca.eu).

Les étudiants éligibles doivent être ressortissant d’un pays où les sciences de la Terre et de l’Univers sont en développement. Les lauréats H. Poincaré Junior recevront chacun jusqu’à 2500 euros pour une durée de stage de 2 mois ou plus.

Les étudiants intéressés doivent contacter un chercheur de l’OCA dans leur discipline qui prépare et dépose le dossier de candidature. Ce dossier est électronique et doit comporter une lettre de présentation du candidat par le chercheur de l’OCA ainsi qu’une description du stage prévu. Les candidatures doivent être soumises à l’ADION à l’adresse poincarejunior@oca.eu avant le 30 avril 2011.

Le comité de sélection est composé du bureau de l’ADION et de représentants des laboratoires de l’OCA. La liste des lauréats sera publiée au courant du mois de mai 2011. Pour plus d’informations, contacter Fathi Namouni (namouni@obs-nice.fr).

Date limite : 30 avril 2011.

4. Summer School in Statistics for Astronomers and Statistical Challenges in Modern Astronomy , 6-17 June 2011, Pennsylvania, USA

- Summer School in Statistics for Astronomers (June 6-10, 2011) : The seventh summer school is an intensive week covering basic statistical inference, several fields of applied statistics, and hands-on experience with the R computing environment. Topics include : exploratory data analysis, hypothesis testing, parameter estimation, regression, bootstrap resampling, model selection & goodness-of-fit, maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods, nonparametrics, spatial processes, and times series. Instructors are mostly faculty members in statistics.
- Pre-conference tutorials(June 11-12, 2011) : Instruction in four areas of astrostatistical interest presented during the weekend between the Summer School and SCMA V conference. Topics are : Bayesian computation and MCMC ; data mining ; R for astronomers ; and wavelets for image analysis. Instructors are members of the SCMA V Scientific Organizing Committee.
- SCMA V conference (June 13-17, 2011) : Held every five years, SCMA conferences are the premier cross-disciplinary forum for research statisticians and astronomers to discuss methodological issues of mutual interest. Session topics include : statistical modeling in astronomy, Bayesian analysis across astronomy ; Bayesian cosmology ; data mining and informatics ; sparsity ; interpreting astrophysical simulations ; time domain astronomy ; spatial and image analysis ; and future directions for astrostatistics. Invited lectures will be followed by cross-disciplinary commentaries. The conference welcomes contributed papers from statisticians and astronomers.

Contributed papers for the SCMA V conference are welcome. Some Contributed Papers will be chosen for oral presentation by the S.O.C.

Registration open until May 6. Summer School registration may close earlier if the enrollment limit is reached.

5. VIIIth Marseille International Cosmology Conference, "The Cosmic Odyssey of baryons : accreting, outflowing and hiding", June 20-24, Marseille

More than a decade of deep spectroscopic surveys of galaxies, absorption line studies in quasar spectra and intensive numerical simulations have placed the interactions between galaxies and the intergalactic medium (IGM) at the center of our understanding of the formation and growth of galaxies. The IGM appears as the dominant reservoir of baryons at all epochs, provides fuel for star formation in galaxies and, in turn, is transformed by radiation, metal production and mechanical energy released through galaxy evolution.

The conference aims at reviewing and studying this co-evolution of galaxies and the IGM, from the completion of reionization to the present epoch. A large place will be given to numerical simulations as providing the crucial link between the baryonic processes involved and the evolution observed.

The main topics that will be addressed are : - the missing baryons problem and the development of the warm-hot intergalactic medium (WHIM), - the observational signatures of gas infall and outflows, and related phenomena observed at large scales (neutral hydrogen evolution, metallicity variations, etc), - the environment directly surrounding galaxies, the so-called circumgalactic medium (CGM).

Registration is now open. More detailed information on the conference (SOC, invited speakers, sessions) is available on the conference web site.

6. IAU Symposium 285 "New Horizons in Time Domain Astronomy", September 19-23, 2011, Oxford, UK

Variability pervades the cosmos. Studies of variability dominate research in astrophysics, and are so common that very many groups, projects and instruments are dedicated to the examination of just one form of variability, or one aspect of its diverse manifestations.

This symposium will cut across the accepted grain, and examine the phenomenon of variability itself. It will cover all aspects of time-domain astronomy, interpreting its various forms to obtain a detailed understanding of the physics involved.

A key part of the programme is a series of focus/break-out sessions that will be held on the afternoons of Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. These sessions will allow for hands-on work with software tools, examination of the data and techniques necessary to understand certain types of phenomena, and in-depth explorations of the astrophysics underlying variability in diverse but specific situations.

Web page : HERE. Registration is now open. Note that the closing date for IAU travel-grant applications is March 11.

7. International Workshop : "Starburst-AGN connection under the multiwavelength limelight", 14-16 September 2011, European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC) of ESA, Villanueva de la Cañada (Madrid), Spain

The European Space Agency (ESA) Faculty is pleased to announce the opening of the registration to the international workshop : "Starburst-AGN connection under the multiwavelength limelight". The Workshop will be held at the European Space Astronomy Center of ESA (ESAC), Villanueva de la Cañada (Madrid, Spain) on 14-16 September 2011.

Deadline for registration and abstract submission is 17 April 2011.

This Workshop aims at gathering observational and theoretical astronomers to address the following questions :
- The "Starburst-AGN Connection" : a causal relation ?
- "Starburst-AGN Connection" at low and high redshift : any evidence for evolution ?
- Is there a connection between AGN obscuration and star formation ?
- In which way are the star formation and AGN phenomena affected by the environment ?
- Do stars contribute to AGN fuelling ?

Perspective participants are encouraged to visit the Workshop web page, or contact the Workshop organisers at : sbagn_esac2011@sciops.esa.int

The ESAC Faculty offers 5 grants to cover travel and accommodation expenses for graduate students. Applications should be sent by 18 March 2011. The grant allocation conditions and application forms are available on the Workshop web page.

Summary of important deadlines :
- Submission of applications for graduate students grants : 18 March 2011
- Registration and abstract submission : 17 April 2011
- Publication of the scientific program : 15 June 2011
- Workshop : 14-16 September 2011

Looking forward to meeting you at ESAC ! Matteo Guainazzi on behalf of the Local Organising Committee
