2018 TIARA Summer School on Origins of the Solar System

July 16-20, 2018
ASIAA Auditorium, 1F AS/NTU Astronomy-Mathematics Building, Taipei, Taiwan

Announcement [School Website]


This summer school is projected to be the first of joint activities between ASIAA and the Center of Star and Planet Formation and the Niels Bohr International Academy at the University of Copenhagen, based on the mutual interests of members of their respective institutions in Cosmochemistry, Theoretical Astrophysics and Star and Planet Formation. The theme on Origins of the Solar System is one that closely covers the broad interests and expertise present in both local institutions and forms the foundation of exchanges and efforts of collaborations and cooperations. The planned topics in this first summer school spread from nucleosynthesis, the influence of the interstellar medium, the formation and evolution of protoplanetary systems, and the planetary materials that contribute to the making of planets. The objectives are to bring researchers and students alike worldwide to participate in the exciting journey through the exploration of multidisciplinary studies.

The lectures are designed for graduate students in Physics, Astronomy and Astrophysics, Geophysics and Chemistry; but participants at all levels are welcomed to attend. Registration is required for all participants. The school is limited to a total of roughly 60 people. For Masters and PhD students, an email confirming their research status provided by an academic or research advisor is also mandatory. A limited number of merit-based lodging support may be available for Masters and PhD students from outside of Taipei.

TIARA/CHARMS Mini-Workshop on Disks in the Protoplanetary Systems


TIARA/CHARMS Mini-Workshop on Disks in the Protoplanetary Systems

August 2-3, 2016         [Registration and Program]

ASIAA R1203, AS/NTU Astronomy-Mathematics Building

Recent advances of observational techniques in near-infrared (Subaru/HiCIAO, VLT/SPHERE) and millimeter-submillimeter wavelengths (ALMA) have revealed the detailed structures of the protoplanetary disks down to scales of several AUs. Formation of these disks around low to medium mass stars not only plays important roles in the distribution of mass and angular momenta of the original protoplanetary systems but also shape the final outcome of the ultimate protoplanets and their associated satellite systems harbored within. Understanding the processes in action and obtaining clues from state-of-the-art observational results are time-critical and intimately related. In connection with recent efforts of the CHARMS project of TIARA, which coordinates and integrates many elements of numerical modeling, this two-day mini-workshop aims to bring together various aspects in the research of protoplanetary disks, physical and chemical modeling, numerical simulations (HD and MHD), radiative transfer, synthetic observations and synergies with high-resolution observations. This mini-workshop serves to facilitate interactions and dialogues among overseas researchers and local community engaged by similar interests.
