TO THE PRESIDENT OF ARGENTINA MAURICIO MACRI AND THE ARGENTINE AUTHORITIES IN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

After 12 years of continuous growth and expansion (2003-2015) the science and technology system of Argentina is collapsing due to budget cuts, personnel reductions, breach of assumed commitments in research grants, international cooperation and serious restrictions imposed by the current government. These policies, which include abandoning of the much-needed plans for infrastructure improvement and new constructions, not only affect the National Research Council (CONICET) and the National Agency for the Promotion of Science and Technology (ANPCYT), but also the National Universities.

Galaxy surveys are instrumental for the study of the large scale structure of the Universe. These surveys are becoming larger and deeper, producing cosmological (and non-cosmological) results of great importance. The next large survey will be conducted by the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), which will have its first light in 2020. In addition, there are several other projects that will have a significant impact on cosmology planned for the same period, with significant synergies with LSST. Therefore it is timely to discuss what can be expected from these projects and how we can be prepared to extract information from the future experiments in an efficient and coordinated way.

January 14-19, 2019 | São Paulo, Brazil | IFT-UNESP

This school is aimed at graduate students in Physics, Mathematics, Ecology and Epidemiology, having at least a basic knowledge of calculus and differential equations. Lectures cover the basics of population dynamics and are supplemented with modelling exercises addressing mainly problems in ecology, epidemiology and evolution. Undergraduate students with exceptional records are also encouraged to apply. Limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.

July 2-7, 2019 - San Juan, Argentina

Understanding and being able to forecast space weather is an increasingly important aspect of our modern technology-reliant society. This Workshop will promote the exchange of information in the area of space weather, from the point of view of the phenomena that drive it from its origin in the solar atmosphere, through its evolution in the interplanetary medium, to its arrival in geospace. Advanced understanding on space weather drivers is essential to improve predictability of the solar-terrestrial coupling.
