A New Era in the Quest for Dark Matter
Aula Magna Enric Casassas (Faculty of Physics, UB Campus)
The existence of dark matter has been discussed for more than a century. In the 1970s, astronomers and cosmologists have then begun to build what is today a compelling body of evidence for this elusive component of the universe.

Modified Gravity and Cosmology Workhop
Sala Alberto Lobo (ICE building, UAB Campus)
The Workshop is open to topics related to cosmology and theoretical physics, including:

  • Possibility of Observing Modified Gravity in an Astrophysical Level (Neutron Stars)
  • Quantum Gravity
  • Quantum Cosmology and Loop Quantum Cosmology
  • Quantum vacuum and the Casimir Effect
  • The cosmological constant problem.
  • Mathematical physics techniques for quantum vacuum studies

ICCUB SEMINAR – Sensing the space-time: gravitational wave detectors, black holes and neutron stars.
Seminari DAM
On the 11th of February 2016, the LIGO scientific collaboration and Virgo announced the first direct detection of gravitational waves, marvelling the scientific communities and sparkling a huge interest on the media and the general public.

Astrobiology from Earth to Mars and Beyond!
Aula Magna Enric Casassas
Astrobiology begins right here on Earth studying the extreme environments that our planet offers. Then, such understanding must be translated to predicting where we may find life elsewhere in our Solar System and even beyond in our galaxy.

ICCUB COLLOQUIA – Quantum Tests of Gravity
Aula Magna Enric Casassas
It is well known that quantum systems can serve as extremely sensitive probes of gravity. A series of pioneering experiments, including with neutrons, atom interferometers and atomic clocks, have established a firm basis of quantum experiments that test effects of weak gravitational fields.

ICCUB COLLOQUIA – Black Holes, Thermodynamics, and Information Loss
Aula Magna Enric Casassas
A black hole is a "region of no escape" produced by the complete gravitational collapse of a body. During the past 45 years---and due primarily to the groundbreaking work of Stephen Hawking---a remarkable relationship has emerged between the theory of black holes in general relativity and the laws of thermodynamics.

ICCUB COLLOQUIA – Quantum Disruption
Aula Magna Enric Casassas
The field of quantum computation has experienced a number of brutal boosts in recent years and will become a key technology in the short future. Indeed, quantum computation brings the promise to outperform classical computers on some selected but extremely relevant tasks. We review recent progress in this quantum race.

ICCUB CONFERENCE – ICCUB Winter Meeting 2018
Sala de Graus Eduard Fontseré
We continue with a new edition of the series of the ICCUB Winter Meeting, taking place this time in February 1st-2nd 2018. The idea of this meeting is to gather as many people as possible, and give the opportunity to young researchers working in the research areas of our Institute (Astrophysics, Particle Physics, Cosmology, Gravitation and Nuclear Physics) to present their work in a way as didactic and entertaining as possible.

ICCUB OUTREACH TALK – La contaminació lumínica, el cantó fosc de la llum [NOT TRANSLATED]
A22G Aulari de la facultat de física, Universitat de Barcelona
La introducció de l'enllumenat artificial a les nostres vides va suposar un gran canvi i un avenç destacat en el desenvolupament de diverses activitats però no tot ha estat positiu.

ICCUB OUTREACH TALK – Explosions de Supernova: La persistència de la memòria [NOT TRANSLATED]
Aula Magna Edifici Històric Universitat de Barcelona
En aquesta xerrada es donarà una perspectiva general dels coneixements actuals sobre explosions de supernova: què són, quin paper juguen en l’evolució estelar, i quina relació tenen amb l’origen dels elements químics al nostre Univers.

ICCUB COLLOQUIA – Equilibrium and Dimensionality in Chemical Evolution
Aula Magna Enric Casassas
I will discuss insights from analytic and numerical models of galactic chemical evolution and observations of Milky Way elemental abundances from the SDSS APOGEE surveys. Under generic assumptions, the abundances and abundance ratios in fully mixed one-zone chemical evolution models approach an equilibrium in which element production is balanced by depletion of heavy elements by star formation and outflows.
