Summer e Winter School

2018 NEON Observing School

Asiago Astrophysical Observatory 9 - 22 September 2018

The school is primarily meant for PhD students in Astronomy, who do not have prior experience in observing with professional 1-2 metre class telescopes. MSc students in the latestages of their thesis work, and young PostDocs who do not have observing experience, can also be concidered.

PhD Summer School: Supermassive Black Holes and their Host Galaxies

Asiago Astrophysical Observatory 29 July - 4 August 2018

This summer school is arranged in collaboration with the Department of Physics of the University of Oxford. It will consolidate existing collaborations with the Physics and Astronomy Department of the University of Padua and provide opportunities to develop new joint research projects. The school is open to 20 selected graduate students in Physics or Astronomy, coming from any international research institute.

PhD Summer School: Looking at Cosmic Sources in Polarized Light

Asiago Astrophysical Observatory 18 - 26 June 2018

Goal of the school is to offer graduate students and young researchers an updated, comprehensive view of multi-wavelength astrophysical polarimetry. This is a particularly favourable time for getting together experienced and junior scientists. Polarimetry is entering its golden age thanks to the upcoming space missions (IXPE, XIPE and e-XTP) which, for the first time ever, will systematically perform polarimetry measures in the X-rays. Polarimetry provides an entirely new way to look at the high-energy sky. In particular, it will give key information on highly-magnetic neutron stars (or magnetars), where vacuum birefringence (a Quantum Electrodynamics effect predicted 80 years ago and never measured in the lab) can at last be verified and on the structure and geometry of black hole accretion discs, making it possible to test General Relativity in the strong field limit and obtain an independent measure of the black hole spin. Polarization measurements will test inflation by detecting CMB polarization anisotropies associated with primordial gravitational waves background.

PhD Summer School: Stable and Chaotic Motions in the Planetary Problem

Asiago Astrophysical Observatory 10 - 15 June 2018

This summer school mainly focuses on a deep study of the dynamics of planetary systems from two different points of view. The mathematical approach is based on perturbation theories which were introduced in the mid-20th century by A.N. Kolmogorov, V.I. Arnold and J. Moser. On the other hand, the recent astronomical observations of comets, asteroids and exoplanets from ground and space have largely improved our comprehension of the planetary problem.
