We aim to bring together astronomers who are pursuing a variety of strategies to contribute in answering the question: “What constitutes a prototypical low-mass star forming region from core to cluster scales?” This question refers specifically to the formation of low-mass stars, but it also can incorporate, for example, higher-mass stars that form in environments shared with low-mass stars, parallels between low- and high-mass star formation, starless cores, brown dwarfs, planetary formation simultaneous with low-mass star formation, and related topics. We suggest that all contributions present observations (from any wavelength) and/or numerical simulation to provide a perspective that is crucial for a comprehensive understanding of low-mass star forming regions.
Viña de Mar, Chile, December 12-13, 2016
Based on the success of the first LSST-Chile Workshop on Nov 19-21, 2015, we are now organizing the second version of what hopefully will become a yearly activity: the "Towards Science in Chile with LSST" 2016 workshop. The main motivation for this workshop is to address how prepared are we, as Chilean community, for the avalanche of LSST data and more importantly what research we hope to do with these data. With this in mind, we are organizing a two-days meeting in which members of the Chilean community can present and discuss their ideas to make the best use of the LSST data and multi wavelength follow-up studies, ranging from solar system and planetary science to high redshift galaxies and cosmology.
Coyhaique, Chile, November 26th to December 1st, 2017
On behalf of its Scientific Organizing Committee, I would like to distribute the first annoucement of "Astrobiology 2017", held between November 26th and December 1st in Coyhaique, Chile.
Astrobiology is an interdisciplinary subject at the frontier of science. Current research in astrobiology draws researchers from the fields of astronomy, space science, chemistry, biology, geology, humanities, sociology and ethical issues.
FIRST CHILE-KOREA-GEMINI WORKSHOP ON STELLAR ASTROPHYSICS
La Serena, Chile, December 4 - 7, 2016
We are pleased to announce a joint Chile-Korea-Gemini workshop on accretion processes in symbiotic stars and related objects, to be held on December 4-7, 2016 in La Serena - Chile
Viña del Mar, Chile, May 25-26, 2016
The focus of the workshop is astronomy education and public outreach, with a particular focus on sharing strategies and methods, creating cross-cultural and multi-lingual ventures, forming E/PO collaborations, and exploiting the science and international reach of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and the Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment (APOGEE) — which will soon be operating from parallel sites in the U.S. and Chile — for fostering these activities. We wish to bring together astronomers, educators, and journalists to achieve the above objectives, and also formulate methods by which we can promote the public face of SDSS and APOGEE within Chile, across the Americas and beyond
