  • Planet mass estimates from luminosity and spectra & independent mass constraints
  • Planet formation, evolution and atmosphere models in view of current results
  • Synergy of direct imaging with indirect techniques (RV, astrometry, etc.)
  • Wide companions and isolated planetary-mass objects
  • Debris and protoplanetary disks
  • Planet-disk and planet-planet interactions
  • Host star ages
  • High-contrast image processing and instrumental techniques
  • Near- and long-term future projects, space missions, and ELT’s

Light Pollution Theory, modelling and measurements (LPTMM)

How remote sensing and field experiments can help us to understand and monitor light pollution?


The meeting will focus on recent advances in scientific investigations on light pollution and its impact on astronomical observations.

The study of light pollution is undergoing a renaissance due to development of high performance computers that can significantly reduce the time needed for more accurate numerical simulations. Theoretical solutions, numerical modeling, and field campaigns represent diverse approaches to the analysis, prediction, and characterization of light pollution levels and behaviour.

The meeting aim is to bring together the experts in that field to discuss the current state of the art and to formulate new research directions. The conference aim to facilitate a more intensive development in this field of research.


  • Theoretical concepts of modelling light pollution
  • Numerical tools and simulation experiments
  • Effects of atmospheric aerosols and obstacles on light pollution
  • Impact of spectral characteristics of light sources and reflecting surfaces
  • Observational techniques, data, and products
  • Design and evaluation of dark sky friendly lighting technologies

La Conférence Canadienne Pour les Étudiantes en Physique (CCPEP)
Date :2015-01-09 à 2015-01-11
Lieu :Université Laval, Québec, QC
Nombre de participants : 109
Site web : craq-astro.ca/CCUWiP/index.php
Organisateur : Marie-Joël Bergeron
La Conférence Canadienne Pour les Étudiantes en Physique (CCPEP), qui se tiendra à l’Université Laval en janvier prochain, est une initiative invitant des étudiantes au baccalauréat de divers secteurs liés à la physique à assister à une fin de semaine de conférences et de tables rondes. Les conférencières, soit d’anciennes étudiantes en physique, conseilleront et inspireront les invitées en présentant diverses facettes de la vie de physicienne, telles que la variété d’emplois possibles après les études, les différents domaines de la physique et les impacts de ces choix professionnels sur la vie familiale.
