Ganadora y Menciones del Premio Juan José Giambiagi 2020

El jurado del Premio Juan José Giambiagi edicion 2020, integrado por Raúl Bolmaro, Moira Dolz, Mariel Galassi, Marcelo Nazzarro y Raúl Urteaga y coordinado por Luis A. Pugnaloni realizó la evaluación de las tesis nominadas para el premio.

Se recibieron las postulaciones de veinte tesis doctorales. Cada tesis fue analizada por dos evaluadoras/es de diferentes países de Iberoamérica con excepción de Argentina, especialistas en la correspondiente área temática. Cada evaluador/a realizó un reporte detallado, ponderando la relevancia, calidad, originalidad, impacto y claridad de las tesis presentadas.

Considerando los reportes recibidos, así como toda información referida a las publicaciones e impacto de cada tesis, el jurado resuelve recomendar a la Comisión Directiva de la Asociación Física Argentina el otorgamiento del Premio Juan José Giambiagi a Pamela Alejandra Pardini en reconocimiento a su tesis titulada Estudio de medios difusivos con heterogeneidades de bajo scattering. Detección y caracterización óptica en 3D., dirigida por D. I. Iriarte y J. A. Pomarico y defendida en la Universidad Nacional del Centro de la Provincia de Buenos Aires.

Latin American Workshop on Observational Cosmology

December 14-18, 2020 (by videoconference)
ICTP-SAIFR, São Paulo, Brazil

This workshop was originally intended to be an in-person workshop held at ICTP-SAIFR in São Paulo focusing on the Latin American community working in different aspects of theoretical and observational cosmology. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic this workshop will take place online. Understanding the limitations of online events we decided to follow a somewhat different format. We will take advantage of pre-recorded talks in order to leave ample time for discussions. The pre-recorded talks will be available beforehand and the participants can watch them at their convenience. Continuar leyendo «Latin American Workshop on Observational Cosmology»

Workshop on New Trends in Dark Matter

December 7-9, 2020 (by videoconference)
ICTP-SAIFR, São Paulo, Brazil

The goal of the workshop is to bring together theorists and experimentalists to discuss searches, theories, results, opportunities, and, in general, new ideas for sub-GeV dark matter. It will focus on models and regions in parameter space that are overlooked by the standard WIMP studies, and that may open a new window into the dark sector. If the WIMP paradigm turns out to be wrong, new theoretical and experimental directions may prove to be of outmost importance. This workshop aims at developing such ideas, paving the way for the discovery of dark matter. Continuar leyendo «Workshop on New Trends in Dark Matter»

3rd South American Dark Matter Workshop

December 2-4, 2020 (by videoconference)
ICTP-SAIFR, São Paulo, Brazil

Dark Matter constitutes one of the big mysteries in today’s Physics. Astrophysical and cosmological data hint at the necessity of physics beyond the standard model, although its characteristics are still currently unknown. The multidisciplinary effort in understanding the nature of dark matter has gathered a diversified community to study the experimental properties and theoretical expectations of different candidates. Over the last decades, high energy astrophysicists and theoretical physicists, astronomers and experimentalists developing collider and smaller experiments, cosmologists and experts in numerical N-body simulations have been working together in order to unravel the puzzle of Dark Matter.
