LISA Astrophysics Working Group Meeting 2024
Nov 5-7 2024

We are pleased to invite you to the Astrophysics Working Group Meeting. This meeting will be conducted in a hybrid format, allowing for both in-person and virtual participation. The in-person sessions will be hosted by the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics (MPA) in Garching, Germany. more
Line-Intensity mapping (LIM) is a novel technique to map cosmological volumes which allows to access unexplored regimes and unique cosmological and astrophysical information. The workshop “Present and Future of Line-Intensity Mapping”, which will take place on April 18-21 at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics, in Garching, Germany, will cover the study of the final stages of reionization, cosmic noon and low redshift with LIM (i.e., z <~ 10). Special emphasis will be put on the challenges (instrumental, observational and theoretical) that need to be addressed to fulfill LIM's potential and turn this technique into a mature cosmological and astrophysical probe. more
VFTS Collaboration Meeting
We are happy to announce that the next VFTS meeting will take place between the 27-29 of March 2023 at MPA in Garching by Munich. This is a closed meeting open to members of the VFTS collaboration and those who have received a personal invitation. more
The Multiphase Circumgalactic Medium
26 February - 3 March, 2023 more
5 October 2022
The main goal of the workshop is to connect scientists within the Munich community that work on Lyman lines (both emission and absorption; Lyman-alpha, Lyman-beta, …) and Lyman continuum - so called Lyman-X, and to spark a discussion for future collaborations. more
XXth Workshop on Nuclear Astrophysics
2. - 5.11. 2021
Schloss Ringberg, Tegernsee (Germany)

This meeting is the 20th in the series of Nuclear Astrophysics Workshops on Ringberg Castle. As in previous workshops, the goal is to bring together scientists from nuclear astrophysics, galactic evolution, and stellar and supernova theory and observations. more

Inward Bound: Bulges from high redshifts to the Milky Way

23-27 November 2020, ESO
B-mode from Space
16–19 December 2019 at MPA, Garching

This is the third of the “B-mode from Space” workshop series. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss the science goals, status of CMB polarization projects, foregrounds and mission design, technologies and challenges for the space-borne observations of CMB polarization. The synergies with ground-based/balloon and other cosmological experiments/surveys will be discussed.

CGM Berlin 2019

This meeting is the 19th in the series of Nuclear Astrophysics Workshops on Ringberg Castle. As in previous workshops, the goal is to bring together scientists from nuclear astrophysics, galactic evolution, and stellar and supernova theory and observations. more
Weighing Stars from Birth to Death: How to Determine Stellar Masses?
19-23 November 2018, Lorentz Center, Leiden (NL) Accurate and precise stellar masses, and by implication ages, are not only critical for Galactic archaeology but also for many other fields in astrophysics, from exoplanets studies to the understanding of advanced stages of stellar evolution. The main aim of this workshop is to bring together participants from several fields to discuss and compare the different mass determination techniques used for different types of stars, confront the strengths and weaknesses of all methods, and establish the required level of precision for a wide range of applications. more
IllustrisTNG Science Workshop 2018
15-17 October 2018, MPA

The focus of this meeting lies on discussing science results obtained in analysing IllustrisTNG, but some topics beyond these simulations will also be discussed, both from an observational and theoretical perspective. more
ICM physics and modelling
8-10 October 2018

A Joint Workshop of the Max-Planck Institute for Astrophysics (MPA) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Garching, Germany more
Summer School on Large-Scale Structure
23-27 July 2018 at the Harnack-Haus, Berlin

The field of large-scale structure (LSS) is rapidly evolving, and becoming increasingly technical and specialized. At the same time, there is high demand for a new generation of cosmologists to develop model predictions and exploit the upcoming data sets from galaxy surveys. This school aims to provide a focused, in-depth training for this purpose. more
Bayesian inference meets radio reality 2018
15-20 July 2018

An informal workshop within the D-MeerKAT and D-LOFAR projects.
CMB in Germany
31 Jan - 1 Feb 2018 at MPA, Garching

We are entering new era of the cosmic microwave background research. Rapid progress in large-scale instrumentation will make it possible to achieve unprecedented sensitivity in microwave band measurements over a large fraction of the sky. There exist great opportunities worldwide: CMB S4 for the ground-based efforts, and LiteBIRD for space, to mention two examples. more
