Nordic Winter School on Gravitational Astrophysics

Jan 29, 2023

The Nordic Winter School on Gravitational Astrophysics aims to introduce Ph.D. students, advanced Master's students and Postdocs to current exciting topics in gravitation, particle physics and cosmology. It takes place at the beautiful Thon Hotel Skeikampen, approximately 40 kilometers north of Lillehammer (200 km north of Oslo).
Start 29.01.2023, 08:30
End 03.02.2023, 19:00

This year, the school has a particular focus on Gravitational Physics and the science behind gravitational wave analysis. The School will feature the following invited guest lecturers:
Elisa Bortolas (University of Milano Bicocca) -- Formation of Supermassive Black Hole Binaries
Simon Portegies Zwart (University of Leiden) -- Computational Astrophysic and Gravitational wave sources
Aaron Zimmerman (University of Texas Austin) -- Gravitational Wave physics and observations

Together with shorter topical lectures by:
Johan Samsing -- Formation channels for binary black holes
Jose M. Ezquiaga -- Fundamental Physics and Cosmology with Gravitational Waves
Daniel J. D'Orazio -- Finding Supermassive Black Hole Binaries
Maarten van de Meent - Modelling Black Hole Binary Dynamics

The Winter School attendance will be limited to 40 participants. Please check the Registration page for detailed information about the necessary registration materials. Preference will be given to applicants from the Nordic countries, but there will be more spaces available and we encourage participants from all nationalities and backgrounds to apply. Young post-docs are encouraged to participate as well. Exceptionally talented M.Sc. students can apply too.
