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
