3. Call for Expressions of Interest to organise EAS Symposia during JENAM2011 - DL 15 October 2010

We invite the Astrophysics and Space Science communities to propose sessions for the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science 2011 in St. Petersburg, Russia, from 4-8 July 2011.

A broad range of parallel sessions can be accommodated as :
- (A) ’special sessions’ consisting of up to 3 blocks of 1.5 hours
- (B) longer sessions (’symposia’) consisting of up to 6 blocks of 1.5 hours, stretching over 2 days.

All proposals should be submitted as plain text email, with up to a maximum of 500 words, and should include the following information :
- 1. Title of proposed session
- 2. Summary of the goal(s) of the session
- 3. Names of organisers (at least two persons)
- 4. Justification for proposed duration of the session (how many 1.5-hour blocks ?)
- 5. Anticipated audience size

Proposals should be sent to Elias BRINKS (secretary-eas@unige.ch) by 15 October 2010 for review by the SOC. Applicants will be notified about the outcome of the selection process by the end of November 2010.

Individuals within the European astronomy and space science communities, and networks also, are strongly encouraged to propose and organise sessions.

4. Call for nominations for the Tycho Brahe Prize 2011 - DL 29 October 2010

One of the highlights of this year’s JENAM was the award of the EAS Tycho Brahe prize to Ray Wilson. EAS Council now invites nominations for the Tycho Brahe Prize 2011. Full details, including nomination form can be found on the EAS webpages at this URL and clicking on the 2011 tab. Note the strict deadline of Friday, October 29, 2010.

6. IAU Symposium 279 : "Death of Massive Stars : Supernovae & Gamma-Ray Bursts", 18-22 April, 2011 - Nikko, Japan

This is the first announcement of IAU Symposium 279 entitled "Death of Massive Stars : Supernovae & Gamma-Ray Bursts." The primary goal of this symposium is to bring together theoretical and observational experts in order to discuss the connection between supernovae and gamma-ray bursts. This exciting program, as described below, will be held in the picturesque city of Nikko, Japan, during the week of April 18, 2011. Registration for and details about the symposium can be found at the Symposium website.

The Death of Massive Stars is manifest as core collapse supernovae (CCSNe) and gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). In a few rare cases, a firm connection between these objects has been established ; in all these cases the supernova (SN) resulted from the explosion of a highly stripped star (Type Ic SN), was very luminous, and exhibited a larger-than-usual kinetic energy (up to one magnitude more than in a normal SN explosion). In contrast, there are clear cases in which no bright SN was found to be associated with a GRB, and vice versa. The quest in understanding supernovae (SNe) and GRBs, and the connection between them, has raised many questions which will be reviewed at this symposium, including :
- How ubiquitous are GRB-SNe and what is their intrinsic rate ?
- Do CCSNe and GRBs come from the same environments ?
- What are the progenitors of CCSNe and GRBs ?
- What are their explosion mechanisms and subsequent evolution ?
- Is there a continuum between the dimmest CCSNe and the brightest GRBs ?
- How can these bright transient objects be used as cosmological probes ?

The study of these objects is strongly supported by the astrophysics community and is considered of great importance. SNe are a key element in our understanding of stellar evolution, chemical enrichment, and the role they play in triggering star formation. Likewise, since GRBs are the brightest beacons they are strong signposts for determining the star formation rate over large cosmic distances. This symposium is coming at a very opportune time as new results and forthcoming surveys related to SNe and GRBs will be available in an era of new and proposed facilities such as the Advanced LIGO, Energetic X-ray Imaging Survey Telescope (EXIST), Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope, IceCube, Joint Astrophysics Nascent Universe Satellite (JANUS), Joint Dark Energy Mission (JDEM), JWST, Pan-Starrs, and Space multi-band Variable Object Monitor (/SVOM/).
