Intensive course on Bayesian methods By Stefano Andreon
The course is free and open to anyone who is interested to become familiar with Bayesian methods applied to particle physics or astrophysics and own the appropriate tools to use them. It is mandatory that all attendants implement some computer codes in their laptops before the course starts (see the attached file for details).

ICCUB Seminar. Luis A. Martínez: “Imprints of the spiral arms (Radial Migration) on the Metallicity Distribution Function”
Recent observations show that the Milky Way's metallicity distribution function (MDF) changes its shape as a function of radius. This new evidence of radial migration within the stellar disc sets additional constraints on Galactic models.

ICC-DAM PhD lecture. Xavier Paredes-Fortuny: Observational and theoretical study of the interaction of relativistic winds from young pulsars with inhomogeneous stellar winds
Gamma-ray binaries are systems that comprise a compact object (black hole/neutron star) orbiting a companion star, with the non-thermal peak in gamma rays.

ICCUB Colloquia. Andrew C. Fabian: “Heating and Cooling in Clusters of Galaxies”
The baryons in Clusters of Galaxies are mostly in the form of a hot diffuse gas with a temperature of 10^7 to 10^8K, depending on the total cluster mass. The radiative cooling time of the hot gas is less than a billion years in the cores of many clusters which, in the absence of any heat source, would lead to large cooling rates and consequent star formation.

Curs ICCUB “Abundance ratios as tools to understand the chemical evolution of stellar systems”
I will provide an overview of processes that produce chemical elements in the Universe, from big bang nucleosynthesis to stellar element production in various stages of a star evolution. The processed material is returned to the interstellar medium that forms new stellar generations.

ICC-DAM Seminar. Elena Pancino: “Globular clusters and the Galactic halo with Gaia”
I will briefly describe the Gaia mission capabilities, science goals, and status. I will then focus on the open problems in the study of Galactic globular clusters (GC) and their relation with the Galactic halo, like the contribution of stars lost by GC to the assembly of the halo; the search for streams, tails, and debris from GC; the two channels of formation, in situ and accreted; and the mystery of multiple stellar populations.
