The 1st KIAA Forum on Gas in Galaxies for Early Career Scientists (KooGiG-Junior) will be held virtually on 1-5 Nov 2021. This forum is hosted by the Kavli Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics (KIAA) and the PKU-KIAA Innovation NSFC Group (PKING).

KooGiG-Junior is an annual forum on the role of gas and dust in galaxies from low to high redshift. The forum aims to bring together active astronomers, especially early career scientists, for the purpose of exchanging recent progress and discussing future frontiers. The 1st KooGiG-Junior will focus on the multiphase gas in and around galaxies, including the interstellar medium (ISM), circumgalactic medium (CGM), intracluster medium (ICM), as well as the interactions among them.

The main science topics are:

  • ISM and star formation from low to high z

  • AGN/stellar feedback and the baryon cycle

  • Multiphase gas in the ICM/CGM

  • Environmental effects on galaxies

  • Large scale structure surrounding galaxy groups and clusters

Important dates

  • 15 Aug  2021 -- Registration opening

  • 30 Sept 2021 -- Deadline for abstract submission and registration

  •   1 Nov  2021 -- Forum starts

  •   5 Nov  2021 -- Forum closes
