Entre los días 20 y 28 de agosto del 2019 tendrá lugar la segunda «Escuela de Nanociencia y Nanotecnología», organizada por el Instituto de Nanociencias y Nanotecnología-Centro Atómico Constituyentes.
En particular este año estará orientada a los nanomateriales y dispositivos aplicados a la Energía y Medio Ambiente, ENN 2019 – Energía y Medio Ambiente. La actividad, sin costo, está destinada a estudiantes de doctorado, post-doctorado, o investigadores jóvenes, interesados en el área de nanociencia y nanotecnología. La escuela tiene un cupo de 30 personas. Continuar leyendo «Nanomateriales para la energía y el medio ambiente – ENN 2019 – Energía y Medio Ambiente y Workshop – Primera Circular»
It is widely recognized that large-scale long-term science collaborations deliver lasting benefits to participating nations. Most of these collaborations require large infrastructure. As is done in Europe, the coordination of resources for these large infrastructures among different countries in Latin America is desirable in order to optimize efforts. With the support of many countries and institutions, the initiative for a Latin American Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructure (LASF4RI) was presented at the Meeting of the Iberoamerican Ministers for Science and Technology last year, and was included in the final declaration that was ratified at a subsequent meeting of the Heads of State. This 2-day workshop is the first step in bringing together the LA scientific community to discuss these issues with heads of funding agencies (taking advantage of the meeting of the Global Research Council at FAPESP), with major science policy makers and also with representatives of large collaborations in the region in the areas of Particle Physics and Cosmology.

Is mechanical yielding a dynamical phase transition? How it compares with the depinning of elastic interfaces? To which extent should we expect universality at yielding? When is it better described as first order transition? What about hysteresis and memory effects? Are there fundamental relations between transport properties and geometry in driven amorphous solids?
The aim of this STATPHYS27 satellite is to promote exchanges among scientists sustaining these different approaches to yielding and related phenomena, setting up an heterogeneous and relaxed environment for lengthy discussion. It will follow up on the line of previous workshops and meetings organized on the subject. Continuar leyendo «Workshop Yielding Phenomena in Disordered Systems – STATPHYS27 satellite»
The goal of this very informal workshop is to bring together specialists on different topics like the conformal bootstrap, 2D integrable S-matrices, lattice field theory, effective field theories and flux tubes, dispersion relations approaches and string theory amplitudes.
Start time: September 9, 2019
Ends on: September 13, 2019
Location: São Paulo, Brazil
Venue: IFT-UNESP Continuar leyendo «ICTP-SAIFR Workshop on S-matrix Bootstrap»
