Young scientists, postdocs, and senior students focused on astrophysics and cosmology! Registration for the XVI Baksan School on Astroparticle Physics “Particles and Cosmology” is open until 1 February 2019. The School will be held in Terskol, Kabardino-Balkaria, Russia, on 10–18 April. The Organizers are the Institute for Nuclear Research, the Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems (Joint Institute for Nuclear Research), and APPEC.
The School is devoted to discussion of experimental and theoretical aspects of modern astrophysics and cosmology problems. The programmeincludes three main lecture courses with teaching aids, practical and discussion sessions, a few special lectures and a special seminar for participants’ presentations, and an excursion to the underground laboratories of the Baksan Neutrino Observatory.
The venue for the school is the Volfram recreation center, one of the best in the region. It is located in the Baksan Gorge at the root of the highest Caucasian peak Elbrus, one of the Seven Summits. From the Baksan Gorge there run a few smaller gorges, which have long become familiar favouriteplaces for tourists and alpinists. The School participants will have a unique opportunity to ski down the mountain and go hiking during long middle-of-the-day breaks. The registration fee is 325 euro, which includes full accommodation, transfer from the airport, a party, and an excursion.
The Organizers have ten scholarships for European students and five scholarships for Russian students.
