School on Protoplanetary Disks in Young Stellar Objects
SCHOOL ON PROTOPLANETARY DISKS IN YOUNG STELLAR OBJECTS
This school, addressed to Master and PhD students in Astronomy and Astrophysics with a strong interest in Star Formation, will be held at the Institute of Cosmo Sciences of the University of Barcelona (ICCUB) from October 22nd to 26th 2018.
One of the hot topics of modern astrophysics is the formation and evolution of protoplanetary disks in young stellar objects. The aim of the school is to provide the tools to understand the physics involved in the star and protoplanetary disk formation process and to give an overview to the current observational results and models. Special attention will be given to hands-on approach to observational techniques, observational ALMA proposal, and data reduction tools.
The course is 100% financed by the ICCUB, through its Marí de Maeztu award. Registration is free of charge. The number of participants will be limited to 30.
1. Star formation process: low- and high-mass stars
2. Jets in YSOs
3. Observations of disks in low- and high-mass star forming regions
4. Disks models in low- and high-mass stars
5. Polarization and magnetic fields in YSOs
6. Cosmic rays and disk formation
7. Masers as a tool to observe high-mass star formation
1. Observational techniques: Radio interferometry
2. Observational techniques: visible and near-infrared
3. CASA tutorial
4. ALMA Observing Tool tutorial
