Guillermo Haro School on Molecular Astrophysics

October 11 - 21, 2016

Tonantzintla, Puebla, Mexico


Format of the School:

The Molecular Astrophysics School will combine lectures on millimeter astronomy with practical work in several topics. The work will involve preparing a science case, reducing data, and presenting results on the last day of the school.

Lectures will be given by experienced scientists covering a range of topics: the chemistry of interstellar clouds, protoplanetary disks, star formation in the Milky Way, in nearby galaxies, and in high-redshifts objects.

These lectures will be complemented by shorter lectures on instrumentation, observing techniques, and data processing.

The school´s aim is to attract PhD students and researchers in general to current and future single-dish millimeter and sub-millimeter facilities. The school is primarily meant for researchers working on any field, but with little previous experience in mm-astronomy. It is limited to about 30 students.

The school runs from October 11th to 21th with 4 hours of lectures per day, leaving ample time for the group work.

Visits to the LMT site and to the millimeter instrumentation laboratory at INAOE are also planned during the school.
