The First Pietro Baracchi Conference

Italo-Australian Radio Astronomy in the Era of the SKA. 1-4 November 2016, ARRC Building, Perth, Western Australia

This conference is designed to bring together Italian and Australian researchers in radio astronomy, to discuss and explore existing and potential future areas of mutual interest. The meeting will be open to all areas of interest in radio astronomy (science, engineering, and computing), with an emphasis on those areas playing a key role in the era of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) — a project in which both Italy and Australia are founding members.

The conference will be held at the modern ARRC building in Technology Park, Perth, and will feature both invited and contributed presentations, along with plenty of time for discussion and informal exchanges, an attractive social program, and visits to local facilities of relevance (including the Pawsey Centre, CSIRO, and ICRAR).

Named in honour of Pietro Baracchi, an Italian who played a central role in Australian astronomy in the late 1800s and early 1900s, this is planned to be the first in an ongoing series of meetings, alternating between Australia and Italy, covering a range of topics over time.

Sponsorship for this meeting is being generously provided by the Embassy of Italy in AustraliaSKA AustraliaCSIROICRARCurtin University, and INAF.

Subject to demand, we may be able to offer financial support for travel and/or accommodation. Please contact the organisers if you would like to seek financial assistance.

The morphology of the X-ray afterglows and of the jetted GeV emission in long gamma-ray bursts

The morphology of the X-ray afterglows and of the jetted GeV emission in long gamma-ray bursts In a new article published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, an ICRA-ICRANet research team (some of them INAF associates) sheds light on the mass and spin of stellar-mass BHs from an extensive analysis of long-duration GRBs

The best place and time to live in the Milky Way

Mar 05, 2021

The best place and time to live in the Milky Way More than 6 billion years ago, the outskirts of the Milky Way were the safest places for the development of possible life forms, sheltered from the most violent explosions in the universe: gamma-ray bursts and supernovae. This is demonstrated by a new study, led by researchers from INAF and the University of Insubria in Italy, which investigates the incidence of these events throughout the evolution of our galaxy

Magnetic anomalies on the young craters of Mercury

Feb 24, 2021

Magnetic anomalies on the young craters of Mercury It is possible to find a point of convergence between geophysics and planetary geology, and a group of researchers led by Valentina Galluzzi from INAF did so by analyzing the crustal magnetic field of the planet Mercury, focusing on some anomalies identified nearby two recently formed craters
