›HEDLA2012: 9th International Conference on High Energy Density Laboratory Astrophysics
We are pleased to announce the 9th International Conference on High Energy Density Laboratory Astrophysics, to be held April 30-May 4, 2012, on the campus of Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida.
During the past decade, research teams around the world have developed astrophysics-relevant research utilizing high energy-density (HED) facilities such as intense lasers and z-pinches. Research is underway in many areas, such as compressible hydrodynamic mixing, strong shock phenomena, radiation flow, radiative shocks and jets, complex opacities, equations of state, dust formation, superstrong magnetic fields, and relativistic plasmas.
- laboratory experiments
- dust and magnetized HED laboratory astrophysics
- astrophysical disks, jets, and outflows
- stellar, solar, and nuclear astrophysics
- stellar explosions, supernovae, GRBs, and supernova remnants
- radiation hydrodynamics
- warm dense matter
- basic plasma physics processes
- computations in high-energy density physics applications
All conference presenters will be invited to submit their original papers or reviews for a refereed special issue of the journal Astrophysics and Space Science on the topic 'New Developments in High Energy Density Laboratory Astrophysics.'
