IAA Severo Ochoa Advanced School on Star Formation

The School


The IAA-CSIC Severo Ochoa Advanced School on Star Formation will be held in Granada, from Monday, November 15th, to Friday, November 19th, 2021. This school is directed at researchers of all levels who have a special interest in star formation. This school will include an overview of basic concepts, but aims to go beyond textbook knowledge by providing insight into the current frontiers of research and will have a strongly interactive aspect with ample room for questions and discussions. Lectures will be short 'flash lectures', no longer than 30 min, followed by questions and discussions. The participants will contribute to shaping the concluding discussions at the end of each day.


The number of participants will be limited to 50

As concerns the Covid-19 pandemic, we will adhere to the legal requirements that are valid at the time of the conference in the Andalusian autonomous region of Spain. These measures currently include social distancing and masking when indoors
