Third Caribbean Symposium on Cosmology, Gravitation, Nuclear and Astroparticle Physics, Cuba

FIRST CIRCULAR

Dear Colleague

The Third Caribbean Symposium on Cosmology, Gravitation, Nuclear and Astroparticle Physics (STARS2015) will be held from the 10th to the 13th of May 2015, in Havana, Cuba, followed by the Fourth International Symposium on Strong Electromagnetic Fields and Neutron Stars (SMFNS2015), to take place from the 13th to the 16th of May 2015 in Varadero, Cuba. The events are the third and the fourth 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: STARS2015 – new phenomena and new states of matter in the Universe, general relativity, gravitation, cosmology, heavy ion collisions and the formation of the plasma of quarks and gluons, 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; SMFNS2015 – 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.

Please notice that registration is required for all participants. The registration fees, to be charged as a single fee for both events, are 320 Euros. The conference fees will cover lunches and coffee breaks during the meeting sessions for Cubans and foreign participants. The payment of fees will additionally entitle each participant to receive the books of abstracts and other promotional materials. Local transportation (airport/hotel/airport and Havana/Varadero/Havana) for the participants is also included into the fees. The fees will also allow the Cuban participants to become lodged in the conference hotel in Varadero during the event SMFNS2015. We are currently making arrangements with international scientific publishers for the publication of the proceedings. More information will be announced in the second circular and posted in the website of the events http://indico.cern.ch/event/stars2015.

Researchers that need an invitation letter for the participation in the events are kindly asked to require it when filling the registration form which will be soon available to the participants. In view of our limited financial resources, we strongly recommend that participants request financial support from their research institutions or any other agency for promotion of research.
