1) Appel d'offres CNRS-INSU 2022
Les appels d’offres 2022 des programmes nationaux en sciences de la  Terre et de l’Univers sont ouverts jusqu'au 15 septembre 2021: https://programmes.insu.cnrs.fr/

L'appel d'offres du PNP est ici : https://programmes.insu.cnrs.fr/transverse/pnp/structure-de-lappel-doffres-et-procedure-dexamen-des-propositions/

L'appel d'offres reprend les différents outils introduits en 2020. Comme l'année dernière, si vous hésitez sur l'outil qui convient le mieux, le CS du PNP aura la possibilité de vous redirigez vers l'outil adapté. Donc choisissez en un, et surtout ne vous censurez pas.

Il y a une nouveauté cette année : suite aux recommandations issues de la prospective INSU, deux nouveaux programmes sont ouverts :

     - Un programme instrumentation innovante et transverse
     - Une action transverse aux programmes sur le thème : « Origines : Terres primitives et apparition de la vie »: https://programmes.insu.cnrs.fr/programmes-aa/origines/

Ce dernier programme, vise essentiellement à soutenir des opérations trans-instituts, notamment en collaboration avec l'INSB pour les sciences de la vie.

2) Appel de temps CFHT 2022A

Chers membres du PNP,
L'appel de demandes de temps du CFHT pour le semestre 2022A est maintenant ouvert.

3) 6th Workshop of the Astronomy & Astrophysics from Antarctica | September 8-10, 2021 | On line
Dear Antarctic Colleagues,

This is a reminder about the 6th Workshop of the Astronomy & Astrophysics from Antarctica. The workshop will take place on September 8-10, 2021 from 11am to 3pm GMT.


This year, we have chosen to have the workshop exclusively on zoom and open to all registered attendees at no cost. A shorter presentation format will be used to accommodate all participant to present their work. Science results, project updates or future plans from both Northern and Southern polar regions are welcome.

Registration and abstract submission page: https://events.icecube.wisc.edu/event/144/

4) Workshop Sciences and Technologies for Space – a ground up overview | September 13-17, 2021 | On line

Master degree courses in astrophysics and planetary geosciences are intrinsically interdisciplinary. Their prospective students are graduates with a great diversity of backgrounds covering physics, earth sciences, engineering, mathematics, biology, ... It is, therefore, important to promote these courses, highlighting not only their core curricula, but also the opportunities opening in space research and the career prospects in space industry.

The workshop "Sciences and Technologies for Space – a ground up overview" will bring together the partner institutions of the GeoPlaNet consortium, representatives of technological enterprises operating in this sector, researchers in Space Sciences, high school graduates and higher education students. The bottom-up approach is intended to provide students with an overview of real problems and of how these are handled. The language of the workshop will be English.

This workshop is organized by the Universities of Coimbra and Porto in the framework of GeoPlaNet - SP Project 2020-1-FR01-KA203-079773 (https://geoplanet-sp.eu),
and open to every interested student, teacher, researcher or company employee, with free registration.

5) Conference Star-Planet Connection | 25-29 October 2021 | On line
ESO is pleased to announce the conference “Star-Planet Connection” that will take place online from 25 to 29 October 2021. The conference is scheduled to take place online (as a Zoom meeting), for 4 hours each day of the program. We anticipate the live program to start at 9AM Chilean Local Time (2PM CEST) and finish at 1PM Chilean Local Time (6PM CEST).
Important Dates:
20 September 2021:  Abstract deadline
15 October 2021:  Conference registration deadline
25-29 October 2021:  Conference dates

The detection and characterization of extrasolar planets is a field that has undergone rapid advancements in the past decades. As we push towards the detection of lower-mass planets around Sun-like stars via both direct and indirect techniques our understanding of the host star becomes increasingly important.

In this workshop we will cover the following topics:

• Fundamental stellar parameters that affect exoplanet detection/interpretation
• Stellar abundances and their effect on exoplanet formation
• Impact of stellar multiplicity on exoplanets
• Stellar activity effects on detecting exoplanets

We aim to identify what aspects of our understanding of stellar properties are limiting our ability to measure and characterize extrasolar planets, to present new ideas on how to overcome them, and to develop new collaborations between researchers studying extrasolar planets and those studying the properties of the stars they orbit.

In addition, the conference will include time allocated for discussions and social interactions. The conference will have dedicated breakout groups on Slack to foster discussions and post files.

The deadline for abstract submission is 20 September 2021 and for registering to the conference on 15 October 2021.

To register please fill in the registration form at ESO - Registration Open

Registration is free. Please act responsibly and attend the conference if you register.
