“Towards Science in Chile with LSST" 2016

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.

Second Chilean Workshop on Theoretical and Numerical Astrophysics

Santiago, Chile, November 14-15, 2016
Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile


Models and simulations provide a nexus between theory and observations, and over the last years significant efforts have emerged in the Chilean community to develop new computational approaches, sophisticated simulations as well as refined theoretical calculations. To stimulate and extend the existing developments and to allow new collaborations between the different groups in Chile, a first very successful "Workshop on Numerical Models and Simulations" was held in May 2015 at Universidad Andrés Bello and organized by Patricia Tissera.

Sharing One Sky: SDSS, APOGEE, and Astronomy Outreach

Viña del Mar, Chile, May 25-26, 2016

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

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
