Exploring the Energetic Universe 2019, June 17-21 Astana Kazakhstan

Post by Eric Linder » February 01 2019

The Energetic Cosmos Laboratory ( ECL) announces its 2nd biennial international conference

Exploring the Energetic Universe 2019

to take place June 17-21 at Nazarbayev University in Astana, Kazakhstan.

The conference focuses on cosmology and the high energy universe, with major session themes:
  • Cosmology
  • Energetic Transients: Gamma-ray Bursts, Fast Radio Bursts, Gravitational Waves, Ultrafast Astronomy
  • Advanced Detectors (including MKIDs and other cryogenic sensors)
Come join us for several days of leading speakers and plentiful opportunities for scientific interaction and collaboration, in Astana, one of the most unusual built environments in the world. Our conference emphasizes participation and collaboration, and it will also feature a walking session, we anticipate in a local nature reserve on the steppes.

Invited speakers include:

George Smoot (APC, HKUST, UCB) - New Ideas in Astrophysics
Hyung Mok Lee (KASI) - Gravitational Waves
Pawan Kumar (UT Austin) - Gamma-Ray Bursts, Fast Radio Bursts
Osamu Tajima (Kyoto) - GroundBIRD, MKIDs, and the Cosmic Microwave Background
Varun Sahni (IUCAA) - Cosmic Web
Alexei Pozanenko (IKI) - Energetic Transients
Johannes Hubmayr (NIST) - MKIDs
Ivan Colantoni (Dublin) - MKIDs
Kieran O'Brien (Durham) - MKIDs
David Mota (Oslo) - Nonlinear Astrophysics and Modified Gravity
and others to be announced

and a special talk:

Alina Kiessling (JPL) - Big Science from Exoplanets to Universe Simulations
