14th Summer School on Modern Astrophysics
Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Dolgoprudny Campus, Moscow Region, Russia
Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) and P. N. Lebedev Physical Institute (LPI) announce Fourteenth International Summer School of Modern Astrophysics. The school takes place on 2 - 13 July 2018 at the MIPT campus in Dolgoprudny near Moscow, Russia. The school welcomes undergraduate and graduate students, and postdocs. The working language is English.
This year the school will focus on theory, simulations, and observations of a wide range of astrophysics phenomena: fast-radio bursts, magnetars, neutron star mergers and electromagnetic counterparts to gravitational waves, supernovae explosions, and protoplanetary accretion disks.
