Place: IAA-CSIC
Summary:
The Comet Interceptor mission was selected by ESA in June 2019 to combine this breakthrough in comet discoveries with a compact, agile set of spacecraft that can reveal to us a huge amount about a pristine comet likely entering the inner Solar System for the first time. Although far rarer than long-period comets, Comet Interceptor will also have the capability of encountering an interstellar object passing through our Solar System if such an object is found on a suitable trajectory. The IAA-CSIC will host a full team meeting in December 2nd-3rd 2019.
Date: December, 2nd - 3rd 2019

Tenth Gammapy Coding Sprint
Place: IAA-CSIC
Summary:
Gammapy is an open-source Python package for gamma-ray astronomy built on Numpy and Astropy. It is a prototype for the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) science tools, and can also be used to analyse data from existing gamma-ray telescopes. The tenth meeting of the Gammapy community will take place at the IAA-CSIC, in Granada (Spain) from November 18th to 22th 2019.
Date: November, 18th - 22nd 2019

SUNRISE III Technical Meeting
Place: IAA-CSIC
Summary:
The Antarctic stratospheric balloon SUNRISE is a collaboration between Germany, the United States and Spain which carry on board a new technology C/Si C solar telescope (the primary mirror has 1 m aperture and only weights 60 kg). The telescope carries three main post-focal instruments: a spectro-polarimeter, a camera with a universal birefringent filter and a magnetometer. The IMaX magnetometer is entirely Spanish and based on liquid crystal optical retarder (ROCLI) technology, which is also Spanish. It is being developed by a consortium of four institutions: the IAC, INTA, GACE, in Valencia, and the IAA. In this meeting, held at the IAA-CSIC in November 11th-15th 2019, a technical revision of the three instruments of the mission (IMaX+, SCIP and SUSI) will be performed.

Key Aspects in the Preparation of a Competitive Proposal MSCA-IF
Place: IAA Boardroom
Summary:
Specialized seminar, aimed mainly at researchers from the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA), interested in finding out about the possibilities of participation and financing within the MSCA Programme, and more specifically within the Individual Fellowship H2020-MSCA-IF-2019, of the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2014-2020). The Seminar is divided into three blocks. The first two will fundamentally describe the objectives and main characteristics of the MSCA Actions, providing participants with information on which modality of the H2020-MSCA-IF-2019 call is most suitable for them. In the second block, the practical issues and success stories of MSCA projects awarded in the last calls will be addressed. In the last block, the entire application process will be carried out.

Seminar on Preparation of Proposals to the European Research Council (ERC)
Place: IAA Conference Hall
Summary:
The objective of this Seminar is to train IAA researchers interested in the preparation of a proposal for ERC Programme Calls. The aim is to provide the tools and key aspects, both theoretical and practical, to be taken into account when drafting a competitive proposal. The Seminar is divided into three blocks. In the first one, the main objectives and characteristics will be described. ERC (Starting, Consolidator, Advance or Synergy Grant) calls, providing information to participants on which modality of the call is most suitable for them according to eligibility criteria based on excellence, and in their research trajectory. In the last blocks, practical questions for the drafting and key elements in the evaluation of the proposal will be addressed.
