VI Workshop Cosmology and the Quantum Vacuum
The focus of this workshop will be on different aspects of modern theoretical cosmology, the challenges of the theory being consistent with experimental data, and the unavoidable connection of cosmological models with the quantum nature of the vacuum.

Nature' s extreme particle accelerators
Aula 105 (ICC building, UAB Campus)
Cosmic Rays constitute, after the matter, radiation and magnetic fields, the 4th substance of the visible Universe. The Cosmic Ray factories, the sites where relativistic electrons, protons and nuclei are produced/accelerated, are linked to almost all types of astronomical objects - from stars to pulsars and supernova remnants, from Active Galactic Nuclei to Galaxy Clusters.
17/02/2020 - 19/02/2020
Gaia-RIA workshop. Expanding the Gaia legacy: the role of Spanish ground-based facilities
Institute of Cosmos Sciences
The meeting aims to present and discuss current and future projects that use or complement Gaia data. We will analyze the contributions already made by the Spanish Singular Scientific and Technical Infrastructures and the international research infrastructures, our involvement in large ongoing and future photometric and spectroscopic surveys, as well as the prospects for new instrumentation accessible to our community and in a European and international framework.
03/02/2020 - 04/02/2020
ICCUB Winter Meeting
Sala Alberto Lobo (ICE building, UAB Campus)
We continue with a new edition of the series of the ICCUB Winter Meeting, taking place this time on 3-4 February 2020. The idea of this meeting is to gather as many people as possible, and give the opportunity to young researchers working in the research areas of our Institute (Astrophysics, Particle Physics, Cosmology, Gravitation and Nuclear Physics) to present their work in a way as didactic and entertaining as possible. There will also be interesting talks on the status of the technological part of the institute.
21/01/2020 - 22/01/2020
Science and development of eXTP in Spain
ICE building (UAB Campus)
The eXTP X-ray satellite (enhanced X-ray Timing and Polarimetry Mission) is a Sino-European scientific space mission proposal designed to study the state of matter in extreme conditions of density, gravity and magnetism. The expected launch date of eXTP is 2027.
20/01/2020 - 24/01/2020
MAGIC Collaboration AGN Working Group Meeting
ICCUB building (UB Campus)
The MAGIC Collaboration runs a pair of Cherenkov telescopes on the Canary Island of La Palma, observing the Universe at TeV energies. The AGN working group of the Collaboration focuses on the study of the gamma-ray emission from Active Galactic Nuclei. Its 2020 meeting takes place at the ICCUB from January 20 to 24, 2020.
20/01/2020 - 21/01/2020
Barcelona-Valencia Meeting on Gravitational Waves and Virgo
Faculty of Physics (ICCUB building, UB Campus)
International Workshop on Gravitational Waves and Virgo, with talks and presentations regarding several aspects of gravitational wave events, methodology and data processing.
16/01/2020 - 00/00/0000
Cosmic Silence under the Pyrenees
Aula Magna, Facultat de Física (ICCUB building, UB Campus)
The Laboratorio Subterráneo de Canfranc (LSC) is one of the Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS), a 1600 square meters laboratory under 800 meters of rock, which hosts experiments and technologies which require a reduced cosmic muon flux and the induced activation produced by cosmic radiation.
22/11/2019 - 00/00/0000
Reading Physics and the Formation of the Milky Way from Stellar Spectra
Aula Magna, Facultat de Física (ICCUB building, UB Campus)
Extracting accurate and precise physical information from stellar spectra is a century-old effort. These spectra are known to contain the information to determine masses, ages, luminosities, velocities and element composition of stars: quantities that form the foundation for a host of astrophysical studies; but it is hard to get this information out.

Applied string theory: Understanding strange metals in the lab with virtual black holes
Aula Magna (ICCUB building, UB Campus)
The Anti-de-Sitter/Conformal Field Theory correspondence, also known as AdS/CFT, has given us an unprecedented new holographic window in strongly coupled physics.
12/09/2019 - 00/00/0000
Critical Tests of Theory of the Early Universe using the Cosmic Microwave Background
Aula Magna (ICCUB building, UB Campus)
The Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) gives a photographic image of the Universe when it was still an "infant". Its detailed measurements have given us a wealth of information such as the composition and history of the Universe. We are now using it to test our ideas about the origin of the Universe.
04/09/2019 - 06/09/2019
Variable Galactic Gamma-Ray Sources V (VGGRS V)
Aula Eduard Fontserè (ICCUB building, UB Campus)
This fifth edition of the VGGRS workshop will be focused on the study of gamma-ray binaries as well as on the potential of CTA in advancing our understanding of these systems. We intend to gather people actively working in these fields and discuss the present and future challenges that new observations, numerical simulations, and theoretical modelling are posing. The workshop will last for three days, from 4 September to 6 September 2019, with extended discussion sessions at the end of each day.

Disentangling nature from nurture: tracing the origin of the first black holes
Room 102 (ICCUB building, UB Campus)
Black holes appear be ubiquitous in the universe – most galaxies, if not all, appear to host a supermassive one in their nucleus. The origin of the first, seed black holes, however, remains an open question. Observationally detected bright quasars powered by accreting black holes are found to be in place when the universe was a fraction of its current age and accounting for their existence necessitates rapid growth from a new class of initial seeds.
