Chemical Abundances in Gaseous Nebulae

1RST ANNOUNCEMENT - 25 OCTOBER 2020

Dear colleagues.

We are pleased to announce the Third Workshop:

CHEMICAL ABUNDANCES IN GASEOUS NEBULAE: FROM THE MILKY WAY TO THE EARLY UNIVERSE

This workshop will take place during the week 24 - 28 May 2021 and will be held virtually using the ZOOM platform.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together scientists and students to share our knowledge and collaboratively discuss crucial issues related to the chemical abundances in gaseous nebulae, including implications from recent surveys. The workshop will cover all major theoretical and observational aspects of the study of chemical abundance in HII regions and Planetary Nebulae as well as in Active Galactic Nuclei. For five days, extensive discussions about specific issues in these areas covered by the workshop will be provided. Also, implications of several recent surveys to chemical abundance studies will be discussed.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

RATIONALE

The determination of the abundance of heavy elements (e.g. O, N, S, Ar) in gaseous nebulae provide crucial information to study the history of star formation and chemical enrichment of the Unvierse. Despite recent spectroscopic observations and surveys (CALIFA, SDSS, MaNGA, MUSE, and CHAOS, to cite a few) have provided significant advances in the knowledge of the chemical compositions of gaseous nebulae and their host galaxies, but some key aspects in the study of these objects remain ill-defined.

In particular, the abundance discrepancy problem in HII regions and planetary nebulae, generally interpreted as caused by the presence of temperature fluctuations, puts under scrutiny the nebular abundance scale of the Milky Way and extragalactic objects. Moreover, the determination chemical abundances and ionisation correction factors, both local and at high-redshift, still suffer strong dependences on the photoionization conditions and on the different methods and models used for the analysis.

This 5-days workshop aims at bringing together scientists and students to extensively discuss about the crucial questions on chemical abundances in gaseous nebulae, the recent progress in the field and how next generation observing facilities (such as the James Webb Space Telescope and Extremely Large Telescopes will enable major steps forward in this area of research.

VENUE
