The events are the fourth and fifth in a series of meetings gathering scientists working on astroparticle physics, cosmology, gravitation, nuclear physics, and related fields. As in previous years, the meeting sessions will consist of invited and contributed talks and will cover recent developments in the following topics:
STARS2017 – New phenomena and new states of matter in the Universe, general relativity, gravitation, cosmology, heavy ion collisions and the formation of the quark-gluon plasma, white dwarfs, neutron stars and pulsars, black holes, gamma-ray emission in the Universe, high energy cosmic rays, gravitational waves, dark energy and dark matter, strange matter and strange stars, antimatter in the Universe, and topics related to these.
SMFNS2017 – Strong magnetic fields in the Universe, strong magnetic fields in compact stars and in galaxies, ultra-strong magnetic fields in neutron star mergers, quark stars and magnetars, strong magnetic fields and the cosmic microwave background, and topics related to these.
As part of the events, the school Modeling Matter under Extreme Conditions will be held in ICIMAF, Havana, from May 3 to May 5, for students and young researchers. Registration and participation in the school are free of charge.
STARS2017 and SMFNS2017 events are also intended to commemorate the 80th birthday of Professor Hugo Pérez Rojas, the dean of our events in Cuba.
Professor Walter Greiner Award, as a tribute to the German scientist who recently left us and whose support was decisive for the effective materialization of the IWARA events in Brazil and STARS-SMFNS events in Cuba, will be awarded to the best three posters presented by students at the conferences.
