The EAS starts a new and unique workshop series, funded by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus foundation, the HERA workshops. This workshop series will provide an environment where early career scientists are trained to interact, design research projects, develop a broad perspective and start international collaborations.
The first workshop in this series will take place in the week of February 27th - March 3rd 2023 at the Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching, near Munich, Germany. It will be organized by the ORIGINS cluster of excellence. The topic will be “Galaxy evolution across cosmic time”. The EAS invites early-career European scientists (less than 5 years after their PhD), working in the field of galaxy evolution to apply for the workshop.
The participants will receive plenty of time to present their research, start collaborations with local scientists and the 5 invited senior review speakers and visit the Munich/Garching science centers, including the ORIGINS facilities, the Max-Planck-Institutes for Astrophysics and Extraterrestrial Physics, the European Southern Observatory and its Supernova Planetarium, the University of Munich and the Technical University as well as the Wendelstein Observatory in the Bavarian Alps. There is no registration fee and the WE Heraeus Foundation will reimburse the local expenses of all participants.
Four days will begin with a lecture from a distinguished senior scientist. Planned lectures are:
Mon, 27. Feb: Dr. Steffan Gillessen (MPE) "The supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy and Sgr A*" and Dr. Natascha Foerster-Schreiber (MPE) "Galaxy evolution across cosmic time"
Tue, 28. Feb: Prof. Andrea Ferrara, U. Pisa "Epoch of Reionization"
Thu, 02. Mar: Prof. Shaun M. Cole, U. Durham, "Large-scale structure formation/evolution and the galaxy-dark matter connection"
Fri, 03. Mar: Prof. Stefanie Walch-Gassner, U. Köln, "Physics of the turbulent interstellar medium"
