IWARA 2016 – 7th International Workshop on Astronomy and Relativistic Astrophysics, Gramado, Brazil

Our understanding of the origin of the Universe, of its evolution and the physical laws that govern its behavior, as well as on the different states of matter that make up its evolutionary stage, reached in recent years levels never before imagined. This is due mainly to the new and recent discoveries in astronomy and relativistic astrophysics as well as to experiments on particle and nuclear physics that made the traditional boundaries of knowledge on physics to be overcome. As a result we have presently a new understanding about the Universe in its two extreme domains, the very large and the very small: the recognition of the deep connections that exist between quarks and the cosmos.

Based on the understanding of the intimate relationship between quarks and cosmos, the IWARA meetings is focused on the following related topics:

New phenomena and new states of matter in the Universe
General relativity, gravitation and cosmology
White dwarfs, neutron stars, pulsars and black holes
Gamma-ray emission in the Universe, high energy cosmic rays and gravitational waves
Strong magnetic fields in compact stars and in galaxies
Ultra-strong magnetic fields in neutron star mergers
Strange matter, strange stars, quark stars and magnetars
Strong magnetic fields and the cosmic microwave background
Dark matter and dark energy
Antimatter in the Universe, strong magnetic fields in the Universe
Heavy ion collisions and the formation of the quark-gluon plasma
