Summer School on Astrophysics
3 August - 12 August, 2023
This year we are starting the 3rd cycle of PSI summer schools, with the focus on Astrophysics. A plethora of new observational instruments have either been recently launched or are planned to be launched soon (LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA, EHT, DESI, Euclid, DKIST). This school will provide a theoretical foundation for various astrophysical topics that will allow us to understand the science cases of the probes from the solar system to cosmological scales.
The aim: The school aims to provide an intensive and thorough course on a broad range of astrophysical topics. The school is not limited to lectures, but will also include daily discussion sessions, problem solving and independent work.
For whom: The school is intended for senior undergraduate and early graduate (MSc) students mainly from the Balkans region/Southeast Europe. All lectures will be given in English, so we also welcome students from anywhere abroad. Exceptional younger students and interested graduate students will also be considered.
By whom: Lectures will be given by senior PhD students, postdocs, but also by some senior researchers. Lecturers come from various European and US institutions.
