Study of oscillations in solar filaments

An international team of researchers from the Astrophysical Plasmas area of the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Astronomy (IATE), based on computational simulations, analyzed and modelled how large solar prominences are affected by waves from the solar corona.

Explaining the origin of a type of galaxy

The breakthrough published in the prestigious journal Nature Astronomy was achieved by an international team of scientists led by José Benavides and Mario Abadi, from the National University of Córdoba (UNC) and CONICET, and Laura Sales, from the University of California, Riverside.

PISCIS: a citizen science tool for analysing astronomical images

A team from Instituto de Astronomía Teórica y Experimental (IATE), led by Vanessa Daza, Germán Alfaro and José Benavides, developed an interactive platform in which experts and non-experts can collaborate in the processing of astronomical data.

Friends of Friends Meeting (FOF)

The FOF Meeting is a yearly international meeting that gathers researchers from several countries around the world with the purpose of foster interactions with local researchers and promote the creation of new collaboration networks.

The meeting is organized jointly by the Instituto de Astronomía Teórica y Experimental (IATE) and the Observatorio Astronómico de Córdoba (OAC). The event encourage the strong participation of researchers and doctoral and postdoctoral students from the local community. The main topics are astrophysical plasmas, cosmology, large scale structure, extragalactic astronomy, stellar astrophysics and planetary systems. The official language of the meeting is English.

The main purpose of this meeting is to strengthen existing collaborations and to encourage the interaction between recognized researchers and students, postdocs and local researchers. Also, it aims at promoting the creation of new collaboration networks, exposing the works of local researchers in an international environment, updating the knowledge on the topics presented at the meeting and bringing new research topics and projects to students. The organization of all the activities are oriented to encourage the development of new initiatives with local and visiting participants. Previous editions of this meeting have produced successful collaboration networks to generate observational and theoretical projects.

The organized activities of the FoF meeting generates a friendly environment which promotes interactions between researchers, and include plenary talks, contributed talks and posters, discussing groups and hand on sessions. Also, the introduction of new “friends” to the collaboration networks allows the inclusion of new approaches, data sources or theoretical tools to ongoing projects.

The talks are oriented to a professional audience, and promotes the discussion of the state of the art of hot topics within the areas of expertise of the organizing institutions research departments and of the participants from other countries. Also, special sessions are organized in order to help students and young researchers to initiate on new subjects or to develop skills and use modern tools.
