Chemical Complexity in Space and Earth Induced by Solid State Surfaces. Investigations by means of Quantum Chemistry.
Sala Alberto Lobo
Our universe is molecularly rich [1-3], comprising from the most essential molecules (such as H2, H2O and NH3), passing through complex organic molecules (namely, COMs, molecules between 6–13 atoms where at least one is C rendering its organic character), reaching more evolved complex organic compounds, in which in some cases are of biological relevance, such as amino acids, nucleobases and sugars.

"The Glass Universe" Women Pioneers of Astronomy
Barcelona, CCCB
As part of the International Women’s Day programme, the writer and scientist Dava Sobel will speak about the main characters of her book The Glass Universe: How the Ladies at Harvard Observatory Took the Measure of the Stars (in Spanish, El universo de cristal, Capitán Swing, 2017) and the role of women in science.

Pulsations in (few, exotic) hot subdwarf stars
Sala Alberto Lobo
Most hot subdwarf stars (spectral types sdBs, sdOs) are core helium-burning stars at the blue end of the horizontal branch with masses slightly below half a solar mass. They are found in all Galactic stellar populations and are sufficiently common to account for the UV-upturn of early-type galaxies.

F. Figueras: Estancada l'equitat de gènere en la Societat Espanyola d'Astronomia
València, Universitat de València
En aquestes jornades s'analitzaran diferents aspectes de l'ensenyament, la investigació i la difusió de les ciències des d'una perspectiva de gènere. A més de posar en valor el treball de moltes dones en ciència i tecnologia al llarg de la història i d'aportar informació i referents femenins d'èxit, les jornades pretendre analitzar estereotips i creences arrelades sobre homes i dones en l'àmbit científic i presentar noves investigacions referents a això. Es tractarà també el problema de la violència de gènere en les TIC (tecnologies de la informació i la comunicació) com un aspecte rellevant en l'entorn educatiu.

A la recerca de planetes com la Terra
Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB)
Avui dia, coneixem uns 4.000 planetes que orbiten altres estrelles, i la natura ens ha revelat una riquesa de sistemes planetaris que mai no hauríem imaginat. Hi ha altres éssers vius a l’Univers? Quant trigarem a trobar planetes com el nostre? Com sabrem si estan habitats? Aquestes preguntes no deixen ningú indiferent. El més engrescador és que la ciència és a un pas de poder donar-hi resposta.

Un nou veí: El descobriment del Planeta Barnard B
Barcelona, Cosmocaixa
Avui dia coneixem gairebé 4.000 planetes que orbiten al voltant d'altres estrelles, i l'astrofísica ens ha revelat una riquesa de sistemes planetaris molt superior a la que ens imaginàvem. La majoria d'aquests planetes són difícils d'estudiar en detall perquè orbiten al voltant d'estrelles llunyanes i poc brillants. Però si els planetes es troben al voltant d'astres propers en podem obtenir molta més informació, i fins i tot somiar poder-los veure directament algun dia.

ICCUB CONFERENCE: Ten years with Timepix
Aula Fontserè
Engaging school children with cutting edge physics and technology has led to the development of a school research institute where students contribute in space science, particle physics and now across the sciences.

ICCUB SEMINAR: Measurements of Degree-Scale B-mode Polarization with the BICEP/Keck Experiments at South Pole
DAM Seminar
The BICEP and Keck experiments, located at the South Pole, are currently observing the polarized microwave sky at the degree scale using refractive telescopes. They are searching for a signature of primordial gravitational waves in the so-called B modes of the cosmic microwave background (CMB), parametrized with the tensor-to-scalar ratio r.

ICCUB SEMINAR: Formation and evolution of GCs in a cosmological context: the E-MOSAICS project
DAM Seminar
By Marta Reina Campos (Heidelberg University). Globular clusters (GCs) are massive (mostly M>1e5 Msun), metal-poor (mostly sub-solar) and old (mostly > 10 Gyr) stellar clusters that have remained gravitationally bound till the present day.

Third Barcelona Technoweek – Course on Semiconductor Detectors
Barcelona, Institute of Cosmos Sciences
Barcelona Techno weeks are a series of meeting point events around a technological topic of interest for both academia and industry. They include comprehensive multidisciplinary keynote presentations by world experts that are combined with networking activities to foster collaboration among participants.

ICCUB SEMINAR – Gaia as gravitational wave detector
DAM Seminar
ESA's second space astrometry mission Gaia started its scientific operations in July 2014. During its routine science operation Gaia is delivering an immense dataset of high-accuracy positional observations which already led to two Data Releases containing high-accuracy position, parallaxes and proper motions of over a billion sources.

ICCUB SEMINAR – The Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer (IXPE)
DAM Seminar Room (724), 7th floor
IXPE, the Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer, has been selected by NASA as the next mission in the Small Explorer Program, for a launch in early 2021. IXPE, a collaboration between NASA and ASI (the Italian Space Agency), will reopen, after a gap of more than 40 years, the X-ray polarimetric observing window.
