|Organisator : Martin Aubé|
How remote sensing and field experiments can help us to understand and monitor light pollution?
The meeting will focus on recent advances in scientific investigations on light pollution and its impact on astronomical observations.
The study of light pollution is undergoing a renaissance due to development of high performance computers that can significantly reduce the time needed for more accurate numerical simulations. Theoretical solutions, numerical modeling, and field campaigns represent diverse approaches to the analysis, prediction, and characterization of light pollution levels and behaviour.
The meeting aim is to bring together the experts in that field to discuss the current state of the art and to formulate new research directions. The conference aim to facilitate a more intensive development in this field of research.
|The Canadian Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CCUWIP)|
|Date : 2015-01-09 to 2015-01-11|
|Site : Université Laval, Québec, QC|
|Participants : 109|
|Web : craq-astro.ca/CCUWiP/index_en.php|
|Organisator : Marie-Joël Bergeron|
|The Canadian Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CCUWIP), which will be held next January, is an initiative inviting undergraduate students from various physics related sectors to assist to a week-end of talks and panels. The speakers, who studied in physics, will advise and inspire the guests by presenting the many sides of a physicist’s life, the variety of job possibilities after the studies, different fields in physics and the impacts of professional choices on family life.|
