The Institute of Space Sciences Summer School is back in 2023 as a face-to-face event that will welcome around 40 international students to the Institute of Space Sciences on July 3rd-14th to broaden their knowledge on the Life Cycle of Dust.
The theme of the 6th Summer School of the institute will be Life Cycle of Dust. The program is focused on the understanding and characterization of the life cycle of the dust from its formation in dying stars to the assembly to form meteorites and planets. The main objective is to provide junior astronomers with a foundation in the field of dust astrophysics through lectures by prominent researchers in the field. A wide scope of topics will be covered, ranging from laboratory and computational perspectives on dust: formation of dust in stars, supernovae, Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) and dust in high-redshift galaxies; the distribution and properties of dust in the Milky Way; grain growth; molecular chemistry on dust surfaces; pre-solar dust and contemporary dust in the Solar System; and the role of the dust in star and planet formation.
The Institute of Space Sciences (ICE-CSIC) will welcome around 40 Master and Doctoral students to attend the Summer School, in which they will broaden their knowledge on the Life Cycle of Dust as well as get in touch with the other research groups working at the institute. Applications from early-career postdocs are also welcome.
